    I have been keeping eyes open for a good high gainer in my price range but CL has mostly been full of Jet Citys and solid state Marshalls and a nice underpriced Wangs head last year that was gone before I could call. This Peavey 6505+ 112 showed up on FB today and the price was right.

    Bigger and heavier than my Pro Reverb and no casters means it's not going gigging anytime soon, but it chugs so I will enjoy it for a while.

    Anyone have one of these? I would love your tips and insight.

    Enjoy it!
    I have a huge, heavy Peavey Duel 212
    It sounds great, but I literally can no longer move it.
    I guess I’ll either turn it into a head and cabinet, or get a refrigerator dolly!

    Congrats on getting an amp you wanted at the right price. Enjoy it.

    Note that one of these is cheaper than a lot of pedals... :)

    I've got a harbor freight hoist already. Little German 4 cylinder blocks are one thing but the 6505 is a different weight class.

    Never tried a 6505. Used to gig through a 5150 combo on the 'clean' channel. It sounded good, more Marshall than Fender in sound. Was heavy as hell to load/unload, like my twin.
