To mark the 30th anniversary of one of the best and most imitated amps of all time, an amp that literally helped create an entire genre of music, Peavey is proud to launch the reissued 6505 1992 Original.

Contrary to much folklore since the amplifier's inception, the recipe has remained virtually unchanged. However, over the course of time, component suppliers have experienced changes of ownership and changes to their manufacturing processes, things which can ultimately influence tone and unit-to-unit consistency.

After countless hours of A/B comparisons, conversations with scores of users and artists, and deep dives into the amplifier at a component level, we discovered some items had drifted. In particular, one of the most important items: the output transformer. The changes over the years resulted in a mid-range that varied from amp to amp, so the purists here at Peavey decided to search for a solution. That led us to develop a top-secret output transformer, made in an undisclosed location to mimic the magical crushing tone of the original series.

The Peavey 6505 1992 Original is the result of extensive research and development to produce the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll guitar amp, featuring super rock crunch, harmonic-rich sustain, and screaming metal drive like you’ve never heard from another amp. The undisputed go-to guitar amplifier for scores of rock, hardcore and metal bands for its raw tone, relentless power and road-proven reliability.

The 6505 features five 12AX7 preamp tubes and four 6L6GC power amp tubes with presence and resonance controls and three-band EQ for taming its notorious tone. These features combined with its classic ultra-high gain preamp capabilities and monstrous 120W power section, result in an amp with awesome stage presence and enough volume for any gig.

For maximum flexibility, a foot-switchable effects loop, preamp output and bright/crunch voicing switches (rhythm channel) have also been included. Because of its singular design and distinguished tone, the 6505 is in a category all its own,

FEATURES:

  • High and low gain inputs
  • 120 watts (rms) into 16, 8, or 4 ohms (switchable)
  • 2-channel preamp switchable on front panel or remote footswitch
  • Rhythm channel: pre-/post-gain, bright and crunch switches
  • Five 12AX7 preamp tubes and four 6L6GC power amp tubes
  • Channels share 3-band EQ
  • Presence and resonance controls
  • Switchable post-EQ effects loop
  • Preamp output
  • Footswitch included
  • Lead channel: pre/post-gain
  • Universal AC Input Selector for worldwide use

This reissue is true to form cosmetically and sonically. Often imitated, our competitors have gone to great lengths to duplicate our success, but none are closer to the original than these. Peavey is proud to reissue this legendary amplifier, the 6505 series.
