Peavey 6505 Plus

Guitar Amplifier Head

It was 5150, now it's 6505! The name goes but the sound remains. From now on, the successful amp series developed with Eddie van Halen will be known under a different name. The new name relates to the year of the company's founding and today... 1965-2005.

This duo is the current undisputed king of guitar amplifiers for hardcore metal bands! Powerful, raw sound, violent power and undiminishing sustain.

Developed with Eddie van Halen and discovered anew by many young metal bands.

Known users: Machine head, In Flames, Van Halen
