For the money it doesn't get much better than this amp. This amp comes just over the $1000 but pack quite a punch for the money. 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.

SOUNDS

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.

OVERALL 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.
