NAMM 2016: Extra Small and Extra Low With Peavey's 6505 Series
The Peavey 6505 series is widely acclaimed, but apparently the amp manufacturer still felt something was missing from the lineup. That's why they've added two new products to the range. One is called the Piranha Micro Head, a 20W hybrid top that can practically fit into your jacket pocket. The other is the Guitar Subwoofer, a cabinet with an 18" speaker and 300 watts of power to beef up the low end. Together, they're a great pair.
With the 6505 Piranha Micro Head, Peavey released a great little hybrid top with nice bite to its sound. Thanks to a 12AX7 tube in the preamp and a transistor power amp, this modest 20watt device offers a surprising amount of volume. As such, the hi-gain Piranha is great for living room sessions or studio work. What's more, thanks to the FX Loop, you can easily connect your pedal board.
Peavey also introduced the 6505 Guitar Subwoofer, which clearly is a lot bigger than the Piranha, but that doesn't mean it's a slouch! On the contrary, this 18" speaker offers a remarkably dynamic sound. Thanks to its large size and 300 watts of power, it also produces plenty of low frequencies, which is sure to please 7 or 8-string guitar players who like to tune their instruments way down. What's more, if you hook up a smaller top, these lows will have a great, well-defined sound. Like we said, the Piranha and the Guitar Subwoofer make a great pair!
