When I first saw the price tag, I had to take a second glance. Peavey's 6505 line has always been very reasonably priced, but this seemed too low. I realized it's made in China and that's why it's priced so generously, but I decided to take a chance and buy it anyway. So far it's been pretty good. I don't really gig much at the moment, but I still crank it when I can. The best part is at 60 watts, it can do low volumes and high volumes. If you buy this expecting thunderous power when you're only using it as a 112, you might be disappointed. It's definitely the beefiest, thickest sounding 112 I've heard, but it's not a 212 and certainly not a 412. However, you have the option to add another cab, and I take advantage of that. WOW, now we're talking! I use a Mesa Rec 212 and they compliment each other nicely. Thick, full sound with plenty of crunchy midrange, even when it's low. One thing to note is that the amp isn't noisy at all. I feared I'd have to buy a noise gate, but that isn't the case. However, to bring the most out of this amp, I use an MXR 10 band EQ. The one negative I have, is that it's difficult to manage the notorious high end, "sizzle," that this amp produces. I use a medium amount of gain so it's not too bad, but if the gain goes above six and drifts into metal territory, it's really obnoxious. I haven't tried new tubes, but no matter what speakers or pickups I use, it's there. Despite that, I'm giving this amp 5 stars...but that's because there's no 4.5 star option. It's been a great amp, and as long as the craftsmanship holds up, I'll be keeping it around for a while.

It pains me to give a Peavey amp only three stars, but there's a good reason why. I gave this amp three stars because it's kind of a one trick pony. It's pretty easy to get a good heavy metal tone from it (no surprise there), and this new installment in the 6505 line does have reverb, but the clean channel sounds very harsh, really thin and very "ice-pick" like on the high strings (B and E, specifically). I had to back down the clean treble and the master presence quite a bit before the channel became usable to my ears. I was surprised at how good the crunch mode on the clean channel sounded, because of this. I'm not sure how much a speaker swap would help, but out-of-the-box, be prepared to have to work for a decent clean tone should you choose this amp.

Gotta love 6l6 tone!

By toonanyc

from NYC, New York

Comments about Peavey 6505+ 112 60W 1x12" Tube Combo Guitar Amp:

This amp is a great addition to any player/professionals rig! The cleans have surely been improved through the extra pre-amp tube and they shine with 6L6 character. The lead channel produces a devilish 6L6 sustain which brings its value ten-fold of the price. At I thought this was a cheaper build than the 212 combo since its made in china, however now that i own one i can safely say that this amp is up to par with the other peaveys! The lighted logo is very cool and overall for the price this is THE BEST value in the amplifier market today. I love mine and you will to.

Don't Listen to the Haters

By HarsStiffJab

from Austin TX

Comments about Peavey 6505+ 112 60W 1x12" Tube Combo Guitar Amp:

I've owned Marshalls, MESAs, Soldanos, Fenders and this amp kicks butt, for the price you can't beat the tone. I replaced the Sheffield speakers with a Celestion Vintage 30's and it is an amazing transformation. A 1st class trip to nuanance city of harmonic dynamics. Add a BBE Sonic Maximizer stomp box and you got a Hard Rock Total Package. The clean channel is very sweet and articulate also. The Haters of this amp need a hearing exam investment. Try taking some guitar lessons and try to learn what tone is all about.

brown sound shredder

By Billy5150

from appleton wisconsin

Comments about Peavey 6505+ 112 60W 1x12" Tube Combo Guitar Amp:

I have been hauling around a Marshall dsl50 jcm 2000 half stack for 5 years to gigs, love the rig but hate the hauling part. I have been wanting someting that has that awesome closed back tube tone and gain. Not until now have I been able to find it. This amp is the best sounding one I have ever found in a combo set up. It has that low end punch you get from a closed back half stack and all the gain you could ever want with the 5 pre amp ax7's and two 6Ls power tubes. Being 60 watts the over drive come easy and the harmonics squeel like the man from deliverance. I have gigged with marshall tsl 602 and dsl 401 and they just don't cut it for me like this power box does. It is still a little heavy but you have to pay some price for that kind of tone and natural screaming overdrive. This is the best amp for the price I have ever bought. Perfect for ZZ top blues rock to EVH bround sound. Go get this rig..

its awesome if you know how to dial it in

By Mike

from brentwood, California

Comments about Peavey 6505+ 112 60W 1x12" Tube Combo Guitar Amp:

I bought this as a practice amp so I dent have to haul my half stack around to practices. It is great if you know what you are doing. I'm gonna give all you kids a lesson on how to dial it in though: boost the mids, keep the gain(post) at around 4/5, never above. Finally, unless you can play at volumes 5 and above it sounds compressed and ugly. Luckily I only use it at those volumes so it is rich and beautiful. Great in the studio as well

BLOWN AWAY!!!!

By Russell

from New Orleans,LA

Comments about Peavey 6505+ 112 60W 1x12" Tube Combo Guitar Amp:

Been playing off and on since the age of 13. I can remember a friend of the family had the original 5150 amp. For a Van Halen fan like me that was awesome. This amp is not quite up to par with the original 5150 but it still is awesome. I Just tried this amp out at the New Orleans store and I was blown away. I am in the market for a new amp and I think that this is it. The salesman walked me through all of the settings. The rhythm channel is best used for blues crunch or clean. And the clean is as close to an old Fender amp as I have heard. The lead channel can give you anything from the nice hard rock sound all the way up to death metal. I am amazed at this range of this amp. The ability to have presence and resonance controls on all channels is cool. My only complaint is that this knobs can be hard to reach and the writing is not visible if your sitting in a chair. Also the reverb is flat and lacks dynamic. These are all minor flaws. This amp will soon be mine. Make it yours.

Peavey 6505+ 112 combo

By Mark J Smith

from Nazareth, Pa

Comments about Peavey 6505+ 112 60W 1x12" Tube Combo Guitar Amp:

This is the most versatile combo I've ever owned. It has enough gain on the rhythm channel to pass as a lead channel. The lead channel produces some of the best saturation and harmonic feedback with pppplenty of gain left on reserve. Leads cut right through everything with the sweetest tone. Serious metal heads will love this amp. It gets really loud and chills will crawl up your neck when you crank it. The channel switcher is a must. Buy it when you buy the amp. No need to fuss with too many knobs. Finding a great sound won't take you long. You don't have to believe me...see for yourself. The only downer is the reverb isn't switchable and Rock on!

nice as a practice amp

By mike

from brentwood, california

Comments about Peavey 6505+ 112 60W 1x12" Tube Combo Guitar Amp:

i bought this amp because i have wanted a 6505 and because i needed a small amp to haul to practices for my band.unfortunaletly, when it arrived, i saw that it was giant, very large. and weighs a tonn!!!! in combo form, it fails to capture the tone of the origina head, and is super complessed from volume levels 1-5. the reverb doesnt do much, and the ground lift does nothing. now, when i detachted the internal speaker cable and plugged it in to my mills 4x12, it trned into the 6505 we all know and love. if you buy it, i suggest using it only with active pickups

Good Amp for the Price

By Josh

from Indiana

Comments about Peavey 6505+ 112 60W 1x12" Tube Combo Guitar Amp:

I am not a peavey fan at all I was actually trying to aviod them at the store but I finally gave a this amp a try and this one was the best choice. This guitar amp has plenty of juice to keep up with any band practice or playing small to medium sized gigs. I was very suprised to find that the cleans on this amp are actaually some of the best I've heard even better than my friends JCM. It is very heavy so anyone who can't lift more than 60 lbs. should stay away or buy a gym membership. The features of the amp are great the pre and post gain dials are great for getting the perfect tone on your amp. Make sure to read the manual! If you get post gain and pre gain mixed up your amp will sound very bad. Make sure to consider this amp before deciding on an amp.

Dang

By One Happy Mama Jama

from Wentzville

Comments about Peavey 6505+ 112 60W 1x12" Tube Combo Guitar Amp:

I just bought my 6505 last week and had my first gig with it last night. It was a mid sized bar so I was able to go without miking the amp, and we just cranked this baby and let her roar. I stayed on the rythmn channel for about 95 percent of the set and toggled back and forth between the clean and crunch, and this thing vomited tone. I play a Strat w/ all single coils and the amp is noisy, so I will be installing a Seymour Duncan Little '59 to cancel the noise, and when I do, this will undoubtedly be the greatest setup I've ever own. This thing is nothing short of my dream tone. I've been through four amps in the last two years, and this is mine for the next thirty years. Thank you Peavey!
