Frequently Asked Questions:

What are some recommended settings for a beginner using the Peavey 6505 MH amplifier head?

As a beginner using the Peavey 6505 MH amplifier head, here are some recommended settings to start with:
1. Channel: Start with channel 2 (clean channel), which offers a more balanced and versatile sound for beginners. You can always switch to channel 3 (lead channel) when you're ready to play heavier riffs or solos.
2. Gain: Keep the gain knob low, around 1-2 o'clock. This will give you a cleaner sound with some overdrive for a nice crunch. As you get more comfortable and want a heavier sound, you can gradually increase the gain setting.
3. EQ settings (Bass, Mid, Treble): Start with the bass knob at 2 o'clock, mid at 10 o'clock, and treble at 2 o'clock. This will give you a balanced tone that works well for most genres of music. You can adjust these settings to your liking as you gain more experience.
4. Presence: Keep the presence knob around 1 o'clock. This controls the high-frequency response and can help shape the overall sound of your amplifier.
5. Master Volume: Start with the master volume at around 2 o'clock. This controls the overall output level of your amp. As you gain more experience, you can experiment with different volume settings to achieve the desired tone and feel for various songs or styles.
6. Reverb: The reverb control on the Peavey 6505 MH is very subtle. Start with the reverb knob around 1 o'clock. This will give you a slight amount of ambiance, which can help add depth to your sound. You can always increase or decrease this setting as needed.
Remember that these settings are just a starting point and should be adjusted based on your personal preferences and playing style. Don't be afraid to experiment with different settings to find the perfect tone for you.
