All Heads Down For Peavey’s Head Amp ‘Serious Price Down’!


Metal never dies. Whenever it seems that the genre has been taken to the limit, a new generation comes along and redefines “heavy”. The sound of modern metal sets a new standard for brutality and aggression, and to realize this sound, the bands that have led the modern metal movement for the last two decades have turned to the only amplifier up to the tasks: the Peavey 6505 Series. Primed by up to six 12AX7 preamp tubes and driven by four 6L6GC power tubes, the 6505 delivers the tone and high gain power that modern players demand. Plugging into the high gain input doubles the input gain for devastating overdriven tones. On top of that, you can create a second “lead’ tone by engaging the Crunch option on the rhythm channel.In the master section you will find the patented Resonance and Presence controls. Resonance acts as a low frequency boost, while Presence acts as a high-frequency boost, both allowing you to sculpt your tone. All of this tonal power is housed in an exterior that is built for the rigors of the road.

Hurry drop by your nearest TGS outlet today and get your SERIOUS Price Down. Price Down also applies for model 6505, 6534+, 3120, Butcher and XXX II. While stocks lasts!
