Do you have a bank account with a debit card? That would work. If not, get you one?

Regardless, I still vote Older DSLs. British made. British sound. Very versatile amps

Have you swapped the tubes on the 6505+ yet? With the separate EQs, you shouldn't have any dirt in your cleans. No, they're not the most lush or dynamic cleans ever, but they shouldn't be dirty.

No I haven't. I just don't find the cleans to be how I want them to be. They always sound kind of meh to me.

@nickdohle, I would have to setup a new account for that, it's not worth it as of now, I don't make enough online purchases to justify a permanent bank account for online purchases.

@robb, I've never seen one over $250.. Where could I find one?

Someone messaged me about trading a Dual Terror for the amp. The issue being he lives too fr away for me to drive and test it.

We have been planning to do something along these lines: He will send me his Dual Terror first via Greyhound, I'll get it at the terminal, and then take it back to my house and test it out. In the even that I like the amp, I'll keep it and send mine to him. In the even I dislike it, I just send his back to him. This seems to be the only way to test it. And even in the event I dislike the amp, I can just cross it off my list and look t others.

Dude try putting a 12au7 in the v1 position. I've tried it on a 6505+ before and has done wonders for the cleans. The only downside is that you have to kick the gain up a couple of notches.

Youre only going to be disappointed if you trade your 6505 for a Dual terror.

Make sure you get over the honeymoon period quick. Terrors are bad ass little amps. But they dont have anything on your 6505 in my opinion.

Define "Honeymoon" period.

I fell in love with the 6505+ quickly, and I also fell out of love with it just as quick.

The size of the amp is also a bit of a factor as well. The 6505+ is too big for me to take it anywhere, and most of my friends that do have jam spaces aren't in areas that i can put this thing at a high volume.

Walmart has their moneycard (visa/mastercard) and you can load what ever you want upto $1500.
You can also get the Greendot mastercard/visa at most walgreens/cvs/walmart and you can get upto $1500 on those aswell.

A Honeymoon period is the period of time from when you first get something, and are in love with it, to a few days, weeks, months, after and its nowhere near what you thought it was.


Honestly I really think you can do better than a Dual Terror. Not bad amps. But if you are looking to downsize, Youre looking to downsize I guess

Would a JCM 900 fit what I'm looking for?

Is it the SL-X model? Yes. Regular? Maybe with a good boost and some patience. Not bad amps at all. Will do most of what you want. Probably not the metalcore so well. But I never tried to play metalcore on one, so maybe?

Free bump for ya

All the ones in my area just say "JCM900 Head" ad the title ad, and basically, tha's all the info I'm given. No seller has replied to a single question of mine.

Would it be worth calling Walters music or L&M (Though they don't deal Peavey) and asking what they would give me for a sale? Or even on a trade in or store credit?

If you trade or sell to a store, you will get pennies on the dollar. They will give you ~1/2 of what they will sell it for. so if they sell it for $700-$800 then you would get roughly $350-$400 on average. This isn't written in stone, but it is pretty typical.

I assumed thats what would happen, my dad runs a business on the weekends, I've learned how the business world runs. That being said, I could also try and get a better price in some way, but I'm not sure it would work. Or I could even ask for a store credit. Walters Music also deals in Marshall amps.

I'll be totally honest, I've been playing the Peavey a bit more this week to see if I'm actually satisfied with it. The more I play it the more I want it gone.

Why don't you put it on kijiji and ask for a trade for a Marshall JCM2000 DSL 50/100? I'm sure there are plenty of people in the reverse situation your in: I have a marshall but really want a Peavey.

Its worth a shot anyways.

Already done so.

Here's my ad in a nutshell:

I have for sale OR trade a Peavey 6505+ Amp HEAD. Purchased in June of 2012 brand new form Walters Music in Masonville Mall, in London, ON.

This has NEVER been gigged. I'd put this at about a 9.5/10 condition wise. Aesthetically, not a thing is wrong with it, functionally, nothing is wrong with it either. This amp is too American for my interests, I need something with a more British voice.

Looking to sell for $1000, OBO

Footswitch INCLUDED

Trade Considerations: Egnater Armageddon
Egnater Vengeance
Orange TH30
Marshall JCM900
Marshall DSL50 or DSL 100

Not looking for guitars.

if someone could give me advice on what to change I'd be grateful

Your asking price seems a littl high. They run $1100ish new, and I see them in great condition for $750-$800 all the time.

The cheapest to get a 6505+ brand new in my area is nearly $1400, or something close to it, that's with HST and all that crap.Maybe put my price down to like $925 or $950?
