Product Description

6505® II Guitar Amplifier Head
Peavey's classic high-gain legacy continues with the 6505® II. Like the original 6505® head, the 6505 II offers two channels. However, the 6505 II adds separate EQ, Resonance, and Presence controls to each channel, giving you more control and flexibility. The new footswitch provides foot control of channel selection, effects loop, and the newly added ability to select the Crunch feature. Now you can instantly obtain that extra gain in the Rhythm Channel with your foot and never have to take your hand off the guitar. Finally, the Clean Channel has been added, completely redesigned to sound much cleaner, and has one 12AX7 devoted to just the Clean/Crunch.

  • LED "active" indicators for each channel
  • Bright switch for Rhythm channel

What is your opinion of this product?

I was truly surprised to find how amazingly refined this head was. Mr. Peavey, and his team did an incredible job. The sound quality, and craftsmanship leave me speechless.. If you love that iconic 80’s metal sound, this is it.
