iamqman's review"Killer amp!"

Peavey 6505+ 112
For the money it doesn't get much better than this amp. To get this solid sounding of a combo amp and to get it well under $1000 is remarkable. The tone from the 6505 is just geared towards rock, hard rock, and metal. This is just a brutal amp with tones of tone for any guitar player.

This amp needs to be played with a humbucker pickup guitar such as a Gibson Les Paul or a Gibson Explorer. It needs that rock guitar for the gain style this amp produces. You can play any guitar single coil or humbucker but I think it sounds the best with the proper high gunner pickup.

The resonance and presence controls really enable this amp to do what you want with the the bottom end of the tone. The two controls are the key to this amp in my opinion.


At new these amps come in at around $600 which is a freaking steal of a price. You can get a lot for this kind of money but you sure can get a stellar sounding Peavey amp. I would recommend this amp to anyone needing to stay within a tight budget and needs a proper sounding metal or hard rock amp.

Peavey 6505+ 112
We have a high gain tube amp with 5 12AX7 preamp and 2 6L6GC in power.
The beast 30 kg delivers 60W of 1 hp 12-inch Sheffield.
2-channel amp with a boost for clean crunch, which is 3.
In facade there are 2 3-band EQ, two presence controls (brightness) and resonance (such basses) and 1 pre-gain, post gain one for each channel.
Is also a reverb, a jack, a button on / off and one standby.
Behind it in the effects loop, XLR output, a footswitch input, selector independence to connect a external speaker.
The box is closed.
This gives a better vraissemblablement difusion sound.
Finally, the included footswitch to switch between channel 1/2 or channel 1/crunch or even crunch / 2


Configuration may seem complex and it takes a minimum of time to understand the reaction of the beast.
To start we put everything at noon (except post gain ...) then you play bass, mids and trebbles.
Then you touch the presence and resonnance to add bright and depth to the sound.
Then suddenly you touch to the original settings ...
eventually you play harder, so you push the post gain.
Then suddenly it all editing the settings ...
It is very versatile, but it's good to have a great possibility to settings, especially as each knob is very responsive. You put the acute, bah for once you're in, same for the bass and midrange suddenly must know how to balance.
This amp is really responsive and respect vraiement guitars used.
A small flat for the effects loop knob lacks intensity.


While the channel is a clear channel false, namely that it is impossible to have a clean clean.
Even clear he wants to send the distortion!
The sound is straight and dry, I added a pretty over delay otherwise you end up with clean to Metallica And Justice for All. It is better to play the guitar volume knob to round out the sound.
Crunch switched on the first channel, and you hit on a good blues rock record. We play with the pre-gain crunch to overdrive or have a beginning to send the steak. Peavey found the key, ok it's not a classic 30 but is in the same family.
It's nasty acid still see, know scaffold dose adjustments.
Channel 2 ... this amp is made for it, it's high-gain adds a tube screamer and then you bury the world (how it is sold already?).
It's heavy, you cut a little medium you force the bass and treble you loose the resonance branch you shovel active micro ... Machine Head, SOD, Black Veil Bride ...
It is powerful, full spit lamps death, are heavy palm muting out all harmonics only.
You softened your settings, you add the mediums you take a guitar humbucker passive pickup ... Sending you good Hard to Van Halen ... A BEH yours! Weird?
Necessarily sending you You really got me and you that's typical, loud, powerful.
And if you drop significant way you gain mastery a large easy to measure distortion for a more extended.


I've had 3 months.
I wanted a high gain amp for its modern, powerful and metal.
I got what I wanted to see more. Because you can type easily without complex blues rock.
I love his personality it needed.
For 300 € occas I pass on some imperfections (made in china).
I think installing wheels because it is heavy monster!
And then the light logo ... the gadget is good but I like it, it's class.

Peavey 6505+ 112
This is an all-tube amp, which delivers an output of 60W (I think)

The footswitch allows switching from clean to crunch, and clean / crunch at its Lead.

It has 2 channels so: clean / crunch channel and lead independent
with the following settings for each volume, trebble, bass, mid, "pre" (gain), a presence control (controls the brightness of sound) and a resonance (regulates the depth of sound) also for each channel.
There is also a reverb but that will integrate the two channels.

At the rear there is also a microphone socket but I can not tell you more I've never tried and I know nothing.

However it is quite heavy (I say 30ains a kilo) but the handle on top is convenient to transport when you're all alone moving.


The front buttons are very clear and precise.
The volume knob is very sensitive but can easily play at low volume (apart easily)


I play several styles with influences such as blues, rock muse (old album), Rage Against / Urban Dance Squad (its very slamming), metal (system, not to Godjira mention them), or walks in clean sound and improvisations on the pentatonic scale.
For these types ampl'i'ment it suits me, although his favorite is the big sound. For the clean sound I think that some small effect can easily improve the sound.

I play on an Ibanez and an ESP LTD RG2550GK EC1000.
The sound of the guitar is respected.
Side buttons control the presence and resonance are really effective and can play with his slamming style (Urban Dance Squad) or a funk, blues, twangy, a clean round, the powerful metal, grunge ... Finally, you'll understand that it is versatile enough for a metal amp.
I heard some who spoke of changing the lamps for better sound, it is my home and I agree. I'll see for the future.

I played next to a Mesa Roadking, and I was not ashamed at all. I'm not saying it's a RoadKing but it is not in the same price and stands up very well.


I've had it 7-8 months now, so step back.

I like its sound, its relative versatility.
Like its less weight (but still very portable), the fact that the footswitch is not included in the price.

Before I tried a Hughes "No" Kettner ATTAX 200 (200W hybrid) that I was disappointed by his bluntness.
The Laney VC 15-30 and 12-30 LC but they are mono-CANAUSI, unacceptable to me.
I heard echoes of the Bugera that I was not too excited too.
A marshal valvetronique 100: too bulky.

The price / quality ratio is excellent for me, I do it again this election without worries.
