The Peavey 6505 – and its numerically named predecessors – are some of history’s most recorded, gigged, and modeled high-gain amp heads. Though their dual channels and articulate gain were designed for a game-changing guitarist out of 1970s Pasadena, they soon became favorites of extreme metal guitarists worldwide. Famed metal producers and engineers like Andy Sneap and Colin Richardson often discuss how the amp sits perfectly in a mix. And Guitar Player Magazine said its use on Machine Head’s Burn My Eyes “…defined a generation of guitar tone.” Today, the Peavey 6505 continues its reign as a go-to live and studio high-gain guitar amplifier.
The Synergy engineering team spent over two years working with Peavey to perfectly capture the 6505’s tone, feel, and response. This no compromise collaboration resulted in an all-tube preamp module that genuinely replicates and streamlines everything that makes the 6505 so popular. Whether you’re after the classic sounds that the amplifier was designed for or the modern high-gain it’s come to define, the Peavey 6505 module is where you’ll find it.
