Peavey 6505 Piranha overview

  • 1Description

Making use of a single 12AX7 tube for its preamp stage, the Peavey 6505 Piranha is an amplifier head intended for use with electric guitars. It supplies 20W RMS into 4-Ohm loads and provides a rather simple, yet powerful, control set. Three knobs are on hand to shape your volume and tone: Gain, EQ, and Volume. Gain controls the preamp stage, while volume dictates your overall level. The solitary EQ knob is designed to shift between the timbre of classic Peavey amplifiers, helping you to achieve tones suitable for thrash, metal, conventional rock music, and more. The Crunch/Lead switch alternates between two different channel voicings.

In addition to a single 1/4" instrument input, the 6505 Piranha sports a 3.5mm auxiliary input for looping in your media player or smartphone for jamming along to music, as is a headphone jack for practicing late at night without disturbing your neighbors. A 1/4" speaker jack can be found on the rear of the amp, where you’ll also note a buffered 1/4" I/O section for an effects loop. This amp can drive the Micro 1x8 cabinet, as well as the 112-6, 212-6, and even the 605 412. A padded carry bag is included for transporting the amplifier.
