Designed for electric guitarists, the Peavey 6505 Plus is a 120W guitar amplifier that makes use of six 12AX7 preamp tubes and four 6L6GC power amp tubes. As such, it can provide a hefty and powerful sound. It builds upon Peavey’s 6505 amplifier head by adding several features, such as dedicated three-band EQ and individual power-amp controls for each channel, and more. 

This amplifier provides two channels of operation: A rhythm channel, with Bright and Crunch switches, and a lead channel. Both are capable of a wide array of tones. For instance, the rhythm channel’s Bright switch adds a boost in the high-midrange, which helps you cut through the mix on stage. Likewise, the Crunch switch juices the gain of the rhythm channel, giving you a grittier, dirtier tone. With the 6505 Plus, the Crunch control is now selectable via the included footswitch. 

As with the 6505, the lead channel can be tweaked to give you various different timbres by playing the pre-gain knob and post-gain control against each other. Anything from a relatively clean lead to a snarling overdrive can be achieved in this manner. 

On the rear panel, you’ll find two 1/4" speaker outputs, a 1/4" preamp output, and an impedance switch for pairing the amplifier with 4-, 8-, and 16-Ohm cabinets. You’ll also note the send and return jacks for routing in an effects loop. A footswitch input is provided, as is the footswitch itself, which will let you select channels remotely, activate the effects loop, and turn the Crunch setting on and off.
