Peavey 6505 MH in a Small, Portable Package

Ok the gig is up and we are now looking at the Peavey 6505 MH mini guitar head amp even though this baby is petite, this amp has an all-tube preamp and power amp to authentically produce the much-loved tones of the iconic larger models on which it is based, albeit at lower power levels. The significant benefit is the sheer (or lack of) size and weight.

Producing the sound of aggression for more than twenty years, the Peavey 6505 series of amps produce the devastating overdriven tones that modern players demand. Peavey proudly introduces the 6505 MH, as a part of its ‘micro-head’ series. Although all are inherently versatile, each of the models features very different preamp voicings and gain structures. We are confident that everyone from a country picker to a metal shredder will find at least one of these will work for them. This is an epic mini guitar amp head that is growing in popularity because of its outstanding features.

There are numerous features, several that are unique to Peavey, that is described in more detail in the manual. In summary:
All models have two channels that follow the same gain structure and voicing of the larger amps on which they are based, as well as a boost function that has been designed for the specific model. The channels share EQ, lush reverb and an effects loop. Channels, boost, effects loop and reverb are all footswitchable. The back panel of the 6505 MH is full of modern technology, including Peavey’s exclusive Microphone Simulated Direct Interface (MSDI™) with XLR output, USB recording output, headphone output, speaker defeat switch, plus a built-in 3 position power attenuator! T.S.I.™ tube monitoring constantly lets you know that your power tubes are in good shape, and if not, which ones need to be replaced.

The 6505 MH exhibits a tremendous amount of versatility in a small package; it features real tube tone, real tube power! It contains no simulations, emulations or approximations. Before you begin playing through your amplifier, it is very important to ensure that the product has the proper AC line voltage supplied. This is shown on the voltage selector switch near the IEC inlet on the rear panel of the unit.
