Peavey 00575660 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for electric guitarists, the Peavey 6505 is a 120W guitar amplifier that makes use of five 12AX7 preamp tubes and four 6L6GC power amp tubes. As such, it can provide a hefty and powerful sound. The amp sports normal and high-gain inputs. With the high-gain jack offering twice the level of the normal input, and if you’re looking for monstrous, overdriven tone, this is the jack for you.

In addition to two inputs, you’ll find 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 that helps you cut through the mix on stage. Likewise, the Crunch switch juices the gain of the rhythm channel, giving you a second tone appropriate for rock riffs and lead breaks. The lead channel, on the other hand, can be tweaked to give you various different tones 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.

Both channels share a three-band EQ, as well as Resonance and Presence controls for the power amp. These controls boost the power amp’s low and high frequency ranges respectively.

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 and activate the effects loop.
