My New Old 6505+
You know how a lot of people have owned or do own a 6505 or 6505+. Well its a go to amp for metal and EVH fans that dont wanna spend $3000. So I owned an average 6505+ halfstack, sounds great to me... but something was missing... the looks. So I did some stuff here and there and got me a good looking 6505+...

I know what your thinking.. PICS or GTFO..

So heres my 6505+ in original form:

Here it is after I cut the 4x12 into two 2x12s and recovered it blue!:

Here it is from another angle in the same condition:

Then I though to myself... Its pretty cool... but then I saw a picture of a 6505 that Peavey made for the NAMM show. And I decided I was gonna do some more to it.

So this is it currently:

And this is it with some LED lights on... hehe:

And heres a side angle shot with LEDs:

So right now I have a finished 2x12 angled cab, another 2x12 straight cab awaiting parts to be finished. The 2 LED strips contain 24 LEDs each, so 48 in total are being lit up by a 9v battery, but I have a 12v wall wart on the way. The Vinyl covering cost about $70 CAD from my mom who is a seamstress who helped a lot with the covering. The LED strips were about $5 CAD total from Ebay, and the 12v adapter was about $4 CAD. I also bias modded it, and it sounds better than when I bought it, and I think it looks wicked.

Anyways I just figured I'd share this here. Feel free to ask questions or leave comments.

I don't care for the blue tolex but you did a pretty good job.

imicius 10-31-2009 04:47 PM

SPBY 10-31-2009 04:53 PM

Dude thats so sick

MatrixClaw 10-31-2009 04:56 PM

Cool man, not a big fan of that head style, but LEDs always make me happy :heart:

Ignite 10-31-2009 05:00 PM

If only I liked the cleans, I'd definitely get one of those.

It's pretty sick dude.

SwampAshSpecial 10-31-2009 05:15 PM

looks pretty cool - I'd prefer it with Black Tolex but thats just my personal preference!

Jinskee 10-31-2009 05:22 PM

i'm not normally a fan of blue tolexes, but you managed to pull it off!


mikeyElite 10-31-2009 05:24 PM

looks great. the only thing i don't really dig about it is the logo on the cab.

Ethanb08 10-31-2009 05:47 PM

Thanks for the comments everybody.

Where do you grab power for the LEDs? Did you just use an LED strip made for a 12 volt application?

mlb13mf 10-31-2009 06:41 PM

i love it omg so nice

boxcarmonument 10-31-2009 06:52 PM

I love it. Great idea with the angled 2x12. Love the blue tolex with the LED's. Great job.

R.D 10-31-2009 06:55 PM

Love it, personally would have gone with a really dark red tolex, then put a dark purple LED in with the tubes.. but that's just me :cheers:

Yah the LED strips are made for 12 volt power supply. Right now they are being run by a separate power source from the amp, which is just a 9 volt battery. But in about a week I should recieve a 12 volt adapter which is just like a 9 volt wall wart but for 12 volt applications. So it will still be a separate power source from the amp.

Some of the pics with the LEDs lit up were kinda blurry so I took some new ones. Enjoy.

MatrixClaw 11-01-2009 07:00 PM

Man, those LEDs are sexy.

ima put some of those in all my amps from now on.
