    Product Description

    The Peavey 6505 MH is a miniature recreation of the incredible 6505 for those that don't need the full 120w powerhouse. Rated at 20w this little desktop friendly amplifier is perfect for those that need an for home and studio use. Add in some powerful new technology and you have a great value amplifier that will deliver tones that are second to none.

    The Icon

    Based on the original Peavey 6505 the 6505 MH has a lot to live up to. Its big brother is well known as one of the greatest metal guitar amps ever made with an insane amount of saturation and a tight, bitey tone that will cut through any metal mix.

    This amplifier matches up to its big brother perfectly just in a much smaller, much quieter fashion. Even after changing the tubes from 6L6 to EL84s they geniuses at Peavey have worked out how to keep as much of the original tone as possible.

    Sweet Tech!

    Making smaller versions of very loud heads has become really common in the last few years. Peavey didn't just want to leave it as a small clone and ship it out when they have new tech to show off. So not only does this amplifier have more I/O than you can shake it a stick at but it also gives you more information than ever before.

    T.S.I tube monitoring can be found on the front of the amplifier and this lets you know the condition of your power amp tubes at any time. It could be that they are running a bit hot or need replacing soon, either way having this knowledge is how you will keep this amp working gig after gig.

    Between Peavey's MSDI Mic simulated output, a direct USB output, Headphone outs and even a 3 point attenuator you really can take this amplifier anywhere from the bedroom to the stage. One of the coolest parts of this circuit is the mute switch though. Very few valve amps have a way to safely mute the speaker while still delivering high quality simulated audio through your cans but this does it.

    Here's what Peavey say about the 6505 MH Head

    Featuring an all tube preamp and power amp, the 6505 MH authentically produces the much loved tones of the legendary Peavey 6505 in a small, portable package. The 6505 MH has two channels that follow the same gain structure and voicing of its big brother! The channels share EQ, lush reverb and an effects loop. Channels, crunch, effects loop and reverb are all footswitchable. T.S.I. tube monitoring constantly lets you know that your power tubes are in good shape, and if not, which ones need to be replaced. The back panel of the 6505 MH is full of modern technology, including Peavey's exclusive MSDI output, USB recording output, headphone output, speaker defeat switch, plus a built-in power attenuator!

    Purchased to save using my TSL and DSL heads for home recording through a Captive X. Plugged the amp into my JCM800 4x12 Cab to hear it live. Sounded very good. It will play clean too. Simple to use with lots of recording options. Good value for the price..

    Classic metal tones. Loud enough for gigs but quiet enough for home use.

    Mr Steven McKay25th Jul 2020

    The features are amazing for the price but the main thing is the sound. It's perfect for playing anything from AC/DC to modern "djent" style stuff. I even think it can do cleans excellently, not sure why some people say it can't. Using my Explorer with an EMG60 in the neck, or a Strat with decent single coils, it sounds great clean. The footswitch looks terrible, that's my one issue. They really should have made it metal but, hey, the whole thing looks poor compared to my Marshall DSL 20 head, but it SOUNDS amazing and has those great features so it's an easy 5 stars. Oh, and it's SUPER LOUD even on the very lowest volume settings. You can easily play it in your bedroom at night, but you need to turn it WAAAAY down.

    Trusted Customer26th Sep 2019

    bought this because I own a 6505+ and wanted to be able to get those crushing metal tones at bedroom friendly volume. It absolutely delivers on that. What makes it truly great though is that it actually has a decent clean channel(unlike the 6505+) which makes it incredibly versatile. It can do everything from glassy cleans to crunchy blues all the way up to super high gain metal tones. The built in attenuator is a great feature. The build quality is as you would expect from Peavey. Bulletproof. Great amp. Would highly recommend

    Cathal14th Aug 2019

    This is a really neat little amp that has more than enough gain to be usable for modern metal tones right out of the box. To get it sounding exactly how I want, I needed to put an overdrive/boost into the front (Boss SD1 sounds great to me), and use a noisegate. But that's pretty much expected of most amps to get tight modern tone. Overall, I am very happy with this amp.

    Mr Daniel Alejandro Picon Sanchez20th Apr 2019

    It is amazing, I already have an orange amp that I love but I wanted to have a more metal amp, and thought I’d give this a try. It’s absolutely killer, gain at 12 on the lead channel is all the gain you’ll need for chugging properly.

    Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
