Peavey 6505 Piranha micro head lands in the UK for the first time

Peavey UK are delighted to announce the arrival of the new 6505 Piranha micro head in the UK. Following its launch at NAMM in January, the latest powerful and portable addition to the esteemed Peavey 6505 guitar amp range is now available to UK customers for the first time.

Following in the footsteps of the hugely popular 6505 MH mini head, the Piranha packs high-gain tones into a miniscule and extremely convenient, 20-watt power amp head. Measuring only 8.5” wide when packed and weighing in at a petite 1.5kg (packed), the Piranha really does set a new standard for compact and portable amplification.

Do not be deceived by the Piranhas tiny size however. This little beast harnesses all the high-gain power and legendary character of its larger all-tube siblings. Its features include “crunch” and “lead” channels, a 20-watt (RMS) Solid State power amp, 16ohm speaker output, Aux input, 12AX7 preamp tube, a buffered effects loop, and tooled metal cabinet. It is more than capable of exceling in bedroom, studio and even stage environments when combined with a cab. A single EQ control morphs the tone from aggressive thrash to throaty and boosted metal tones.

The minimalist controls and robust construction make this a must-have for guitarists seeking a portable head that is easy to use yet lacks nothing in the all-important power and tone departments. The 6505 Piranha micro head retails for an extremely affordable £180 and is available to order now through UK distributors Barnes and Mullins. –
