Considering getting the Peavey 6505 head for home use.
I understand it's loud.. but if I use a hotplate ?? Will that enable me to use in basement at a level that wont make my ears bleed ?? lol

You can use a 6505 at home as long as you don't turn it up past 1 or so.

A cheaper solution would be an EQ pedal in the loop, run with the volume down. This is how I keep my Valveking quiet.

Gay & Lesbian I think, the box smelled funny
Greg what did you send me??
Does that push the tubes enough though using the EQ in the loop ??

To the guy suggesting I use the volume knob.. brilliant suggestion - NOT

Theres a volume knob. -.-' guess what it does.
There are tubes in the amp guess what they do when they get more power flowing through them.

I'll answer that for you: They sound way better.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.

i have one and its fine

just keep the volume around 1

what i do is run a pod xt through it as a pre amp, and then i have more precise choice of volume, plus the good amp tones from the pod xt with the tube tones from the 6505 makes sexiness.

Reminds me of that drunkard who ran out of beer... he was so desperate, he drank furniture polish.

He came to a horrible end... but a beautiful finish.
could run it through one of those cab-emulators and into headphones couldn't you?
or into small speakers

I used to think this way. Then I got a tube amp, and guess what? They're loud even on 1!

If you're playing high gain styles tube saturation isn't a great idea. The volume knob suggestion is correct

Exactly. They are all about the preamp saturation and not the poweramp saturation.
