Amazing
James Lupson, 04.08.2020
This thing sounds HUGE, is HUGE, and weighs a metric TON, but it is worth it, I am absolutely enamoured with this amp.

Perfect! Τέλειο!)
Extreme! , 11.01.2021
Αγόρασα πρόσφατα την κεφαλή Peavey 6505. Η βασική χρήση της θα είναι για reamping στο στούντιο και για παίξιμο στο δωμάτιο.
Η κατασκευή της είναι άψογη και ο ήχος απίθανος και γεμάτος. Όλες οι συχνότητες είναι πλούσιες και η παραμόρφωση είναι αρκετά ελεγχόμενη.
Παίζει τέλεια με όσα πετάλια έχω χρησιμοποιήσει όπως επίσης και με μαγνήτες και των δύο ειδών (active/passive).
Επιπλέον, η κεφαλή ταιριάζει απίστευτα με μεγάλο εύρος καμπινών: Marshall, Mesa Boogie κ.α.
Αυτό δεν ισχύει για πολλές κεφαλές! Είναι το καλύτερο μηχάνημα σε μια αρκετά προσιτή τιμή.
Ειλικρινά δε βρίσκω τίποτα αρνητικό. Το καθαρό κανάλι είναι φυσιολογικό και αν ο μαγνήτης είναι καλός τότε εύκολα μπορεί να βγει καθαρός ήχος. Βέβαια, προσωπικά με ενδιαφέρει η χρήση της παραμορφώσεως, για ακραίο ήχο.
Αν κάποιος όμως παίζει συναυλίες ή πρόβες και χρησιμοποιεί αρκετά και το καθαρό κανάλι, τότε ίσως λίγο ζοριστεί, αυτό δεν ισχύει για εμένα όμως.
Είναι η καλύτερη κεφαλή για εμένα και προτείνεται ανεπιφύλακτα.

DER Metalamp!!!!
Joe/git.SeedsOFBlood, 12.10.2009
Der Peavey 6505, direkter Nachfolger des legendären 5150, ist das wohl am meisten verbreitete Topteil in der Metalszene. Von Machine Head bis The Sorrow, dutzende Musiker vertrauen auf die Marke Peavey. Grund dafür ist der markante amerikanische Sound, hervorgerufen durch die vier 6L6 Endstufen Röhren.

Aufgebaut ist der Amp aus zwei fast unabhängigen Kanälen Rhythm und Lead, die sich lediglich einen Equalizer, bestehend aus Treble/Mid/Low/Resonance/Presence, teilen. Der Rhythmkanal ist für die cleanen Töne zuständig, dieser kann mit einem Crunch Schalter jedoch etwas verzerrt werden, um rockige Sounds zu erzeugen. Die Stärke dieses Amps liegt jedoch auf dem zweiten Kanal dem Leadkanal. Mit dem Pre Gain Regler steuert man hier den Grad der Verzerrung während man mit dem Post Gain die Lautstärke regelt. Hier hat man alle Möglichkeiten seinen eigenen Sound zu finden. So richtig spannend wird es, wenn die beiden Regler Resonance und Presence zum Einsatz kommen. Diese geben den letzten Schliff zum perfekten Sound. Mit seinen 120 Watt Leistung ist der 6505 klar für die Bühne konzipiert, und bereitet in kleinen Wohnzimmern lediglich Kopfschmerzen. Man muss eben ab einer bestimmten Lautstärke spielen um den vollen Sound zu erreichen.

Ich könnte mir keinen besseren Amp in Sachen Sound, Bedienung und Zuverlässigkeit vorstellen, und neben diesen Punkten ist er auch im Preis/Leistungsverhältnis der klare Sieger! PFLICHTKAUF!!!

El sonido del Metal
ShadowDarker, 14.08.2013
El clásico Peavey 6505 es conocido en todo el mundo por su sonido tan agresivo y su brutal distorsión. Utilizado por infinidad de grupos de Metal y sus variantes, este amplificador es para mi, mi sonido. Su construcción es muy robusta, incluye footswitch para cambiar entre los 2 canales que tiene y para activar o desactivar los efectos conectados a su loop FX. Pegas? Ninguna. Por decir alguna solo es saber que produce mucho ruido y es muy recomendado usar una puerta de ruido. También el canal limpio no es lo que mas destaca en este amplificador comparado con otros, pero nada que no se pueda arreglar con algún pedal de Delay o demás.
