Peavey 6534 Plus overview

  • 1Description

Designed for electric guitarists, the Peavey 6534+ is an amplifier head capable of driving 120W into 4-, 8-, or 16-Ohm cabinets. The head tube powered, giving you six 12AX7 preamp tubes and four EL34 valves for the power amp section; however, the 6534+ has been tuned to minimize the hum and buzz that high-gain tube amplifiers tend to generate. The net result? A classic American tone tinged with a distinctly British flare, perfect for hard rock and metal.

This is a two-channel amplifier, with Rhythm and Lead channels. Both sport separate knobs for pre- and post-gain, as well as a three-band equalizer and dedicated power-amp controls, so you have the ability to set the resonance and presence parameters differently per channel. The Rhythm path, though clean sounding in its native state, boasts a tube-driven crunch switch to add a little grit into your backing-track signal as need be. A bright switch is also on hand in your Rhythm channel to cut through the mix on stage. The Lead channel lacks a crunch or bright switch, but you could argue it doesn’t need one: This is your high-gain option, designed to provide you with formidable distortions for soloing and lead breaks.

On the rear of the 6534+, you’ll find two 1/4" connections for external cabinets, as well as an effects loop for patching in external gear and a preamp output to send sound directly from the preamp to a console, recorder, interface, or other apposite destination. Patching from this output will not disturb the normal operation of the amplifier, so you can go on with the rest of your chain unaffected. You’ll also note the remote footswitch input; here you can plug-in your included, three-button footswitch, which allows you to switch channels, instantiate the crunch boost on your rhythm sound, and engage or bypass the effects loop.

A speaker impedance switch is provided, giving you the ability to drive 4-, 8-, or 16-Ohm cabinets on a case by case basis. A ground switch is also on hand for mitigating any noise or hum you might encounter when dealing with ground loops. If you feel yourself qualified to adjust the tubes yourself, you’ll be able to do so with the built-in bias terminals in the 6534+.
