Overview

Part of Peavey's celebrated 6505 Series, the all-tube 6505 MH authentically produces the legendary tones of the Peavey 6505 in a small, portable package. The 6505 MH has two channels that follow the same gain structure and voicing of its iconic big brother to produce the devastating, overdriven tones that have defined the sound of modern metal music for more than two decades. The channels share EQ, lush reverb and an effects loop. Channels, crunch, effects loop and reverb are all footswitchable.

Peavey's TSI tube monitoring indicator keeps players apprised of power tube status, and in the event of a necessary tube replacement, identifies which tube needs to be replaced. Rear panel features such as an effects loop, Microphone Simulated Direct Interface (MSDI) with XLR output and USB out, speaker defeat switch and a three-position power attenuator switch make the 6505 MH an ideal tool for recording or use in smaller venues.

Features
  • Power: 20W (tube)
  • Attenuation: 20W, 5W or 1W
  • Tubes: three 12AX7 (preamp); two EL84 (power amp)
  • Two footswitchable channels
  • Impedance: 8, 16 ohms
  • Controls: 3-band EQ, pre-gain, post-gain, bright, crunch, presence, resonance, reverb
  • Built-in reverb
  • Footswitchable buffered effects loop
  • Tube Status Indication (TSI) circuit
  • MSDI output with XLR and ground lift switch
  • USB output for direct recording
  • Speaker defeat switch
  • Headphone output
  • Footswitch included

    I've owned Blackstar HT1R, HT5R,Club 40, Orange CR15H, Marshall DSL5C, EVH 5150 III lbx.
    This amp is better than any of them for getting great sounds at low volume. BUY IT!!!

        Comments about Peavey 6505 MH Micro 20W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        If you are a home player that wants the 6505 tone at lower volumes, this is the amp for you. While it doesn't have the same low end of the 6L6 tubes, it has plenty bite and attack with the EL84s. In comparison with other mini amps, it has the most low end.

        Comments about Peavey 6505 MH Micro 20W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I actually traded in my 6505+ full version for this, and I couldn't be happier. Now I'm not "too loud" for gigs, and the MH has PLENTY of power for when you need it. It comes with nice reverb that you can't get with the full size model.

        Also, the EQ is arranged so much better. Instead of having a seperate EQ for both clean/lead channels, they both share the same EQ. Except for gain obviously. Comes with a footswitch, and it sounds amazing. The size alone makes it worth it. I went from carrying what felt like a 60+ LB head, to carrying maybe 5-lbs at most. I plan on building a complete mini rig w/ a 2x12 cab very soon. Right now I'm playing through my peavey 6505+ 4x12 cab and it sound amazing. LOVE this amp!

        The clean channel does get dirty pretty easily, but that's with active pickups. The clean channel sounds great to me.

        Comments about Peavey 6505 MH Micro 20W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I play at home and occasionally record demos. I have been using a Peavey transformer 212 and running the 1/4s stereo to my mixer for recording. It has great effects and amp models, but I wanted a tube amp. I've had a Peavey head before but downsized years ago. I really liked the power of a full sized tube head but living in an apartment killed that quick. Now I'm in a home with a family and can pull off more volume. I have a peavy cabinet with Shefields that I've dragged around for years and have plugged a Peavey Envoy transtube into it. It actually did pretty good job. I watched a bunch of vids for the 6505 micro and decided to try one out at a Guitar Center. I knew I would have to tweak the heck out of my set up but I gambled on the payoff. Needless to say, it provides plenty and more of what I need without a lot of bells and whistles. I am very particular about my sound and use an overdrive pedal to give my sound some extra modeling. The Micro has a lot of distortion. A lot is an understatement. This head would be perfect if it had a crunch channel. Not a crunch add to the clean, but it's own separate crunch. I play djent and jazz death styles. To get my sound I had to cut the pre-gain to just under 2 to combine it with the overdrive to get my sound. It took about an hour to tweak knobs and pups before I was smiling inside and out. Some of the best recorded sound I've ever gotten was a mic to the envoy with that OD pedal and now I think I can replicate it with a warmer sound ala Micro. Low end modeling seems a bit thin to me but the Rez knob helped a little. I can blame my own guitars pickups as well. Amps don't hold the secrets to sound. Everything does, from the player to the guitar to the wood to the pups to the amp to the cab to the speaker. The footswitch is meh but nice to have. The bonus on this thing is what's hiding in the back. Usb, headphones, power switches for 20, 5, and 1 are nice. I can even patch it to the PA. I probably won't ever use the effects loop, but this thing has quite a bit to it for such a small package. I keep trying other brands but always end up going right back to Peavey. I almost went MESA but some reviews convinced me otherwise. The MESA mini has a little more power, but price, power, size, outputs, and ability to get my sound makes this a winner.
