THE METALAMP !!!!

Joe/git.SeedsOFBlood, 12.10.2009
The Peavey 6505, direct successor of the legendary 5150, is the probably most popular top part in the metalscene. From Machine Head to The Sorrow, dozens of musicians trust the Peavey brand. The reason for this is the striking American sound, caused by the four 6L6 power amp tubes.

The amp is composed of two almost independent channels, Rhythm and Lead, which share only an equalizer consisting of Treble / Mid / Low / Resonance / Presence. The rhythm channel is responsible for the clean sounds, but this can be somewhat distorted with a crunch switch to create rocky sounds. However, the strength of this amp is on the second channel of the lead channel. The Pre Gain control controls the degree of distortion while controlling the volume using the post-gain control. Here you have all possibilities to find your own sound. It is really exciting when the two controllers Resonance and Presence are used. These give the finishing touch to the perfect sound. With its 120 watt power, the 6505 is clearly designed for the stage, and only creates headaches in small living rooms. You just have to play from a certain volume to reach the full sound.

I could not imagine a better amp in terms of sound, operation and reliability, and besides these points, he is also the clear winner in the price / performance ratio! COMPULSORY !!!

The Sound of Metal

ShadowDarker, 14.08.2013
The classic Peavey 6505 is known all over the world for its aggressive sound and its brutal distortion. Used by many metal groups and their variants, this amplifier is for me, my sound. Its construction is very robust, includes footswitch to switch between the 2 channels you have and to enable or disable the effects connected to your FX loop. You hit Any. To say only is to know that it produces a lot of noise and it is highly recommended to use a noise door. Also the clean channel is not what stands out in this amplifier compared to others, but nothing that can not be fixed with some Delay pedal or others.
