just absolutely amazing

Comments about Peavey 6505 Plus 120W Guitar Amp Head:

I have been playing guitar for about three years. I have played many different types of amps and nothing can come close to the raw crunch sound of this amp. The only thing that I didn't fall in love with was the clean. It's not its strong point, but hey, if youre going to be playing hardcore, metal, rock you don't need clean !!

loud!!

By Preston-dtIG1

from marion ny

Comments about Peavey 6505 Plus 120W Guitar Amp Head:

I got this amp for Christmas and it has only been amazing. I play it on 2 and it's about the same volume as my old 50 watt Fender I had. It took me a while to find my sound, though. I ended up buying a ts9 and I put it in front of my amp. It brightens my sound while adding more crunch.You can get that kill switch. The clean channel is good. Nothing special but effective. If you're thinking about buying this amp I would highly reccomend it.

Nothing better...Period!!!!

By Mark Merchant

from Near Cleveland, Ohio

Comments about Peavey 6505 Plus 120W Guitar Amp Head:

I've owned a lot of different heads, and this one is by far the best of them all....if you use the right stuff with it. The best way that I have found to run it is like this...Your guitar (best with EMG's) into a Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer. Then into the high gain input. In the effects loop run a BBE Sonic Stomp into a ISP Decimator and then back to the return...if you run any effects put them in line before the BBE. Sound will be best if run through a Mesa Recto 4x12 or a Marshall 1960A cab. Also, it seems to sound best with Mesa 6L6 tubes. This thing has amazing tone for any style.

Brilliant metal tone, plus versatility

By Jake-ODo_Y

from Melbourne, Australia

Comments about Peavey 6505 Plus 120W Guitar Amp Head:

As expected, the go-to amp for tons of metal and hardcore guitarists. I play through a Jackson DK-2, with a Mastertone SPA hum in the bridge, and two EMG-SA's in middle and neck, and a Kelly celestion equipped cab, and I couldn't be happier with the crushing distortion and soaring leads. The clean channel got dirty at higher volumes, but sounded quite good with effects.What surprised me most about this amp, was when my Dad plugged his '72 Gibson Les Paul Standard in. Perfect cleans, and an awesome, hot blues tone. This amp is much more versatile than one would imagine, if you experiment with your axe selection.

Destruction

By The Duke

from Frisco, TX

Comments about Peavey 6505 Plus 120W Guitar Amp Head:

Amazing all tube amp that will destroy anything in terms of gain. The tone is great and the amp is loud enough to deafen anyone at a hundred yards. The rhythm channel can be used to try to get a clean sound but it's not ever clean. Don't buy this amp for clean but for annihilation.
