Peavey 6505 Piranha micro head lands in UK

The Piranha harnesses all the high-gain power and legendary character of its larger all-tube siblings.

The MI Expo will be the first place that UK retailers can get hands-on with the new guitar amp.

Peavey UK’s new 6505 Piranha micro head guitar amp lands in the UK and will be showcased at tomorrow’s MI Expo.

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 minuscule and extremely convenient, 20-watt power amp head. Measuring only 8.5-inches 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.

The Piranha harnesses all the high-gain power and legendary character of its larger all-tube siblings, with features including “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 excelling 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 £180 and is available to order now through UK distributors Barnes and Mullins –

Peavey UK will be unveiling the new Peavey 6505 Piranha Micro Head for the very first time in the UK at MI Expo tomorrow (Wednesday 13th July).

Taking place at London's Emirates Stadium, the MI Expo, in association with Musikmesse, will play host to a number of exhibitors showcasing the latest MI products.

Featuring international, market leading brands and distributors, alongside prominent boutique businesses, the event has something for every UK retailer. And it’s absolutely FREE for dealers to attend.
