Peavey 6505+ Head and Peavey 6505 Cab.

Description (updated on 08/01/2013 at 11:34am):


Peavey 6505 cabinet is still for sale.

The cabinet is in PERFECT condition and has very rarely been used.
It has not been scratched or damaged in any way, and the wheels are perfect.
It seriously is as close to mint condition as possible.

Suitable live gigs or for just practicing at home.

I bought the cab new two years ago thinking I would use it for gigs. Unfortunately the band broke up almost right away, and it has been sitting in my room at home since I left for college.

If anyone has any questions about the equipment or would like to test it for example, please feel free to ask.

I might be willing to deliver the cab as long as my cost for travelling is covered.
Hoping to sell for around the €400 mark.

how much for just the head and footswitch?
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
@hobnob: Like I said, I would prefer to sell both the Head and Cab together. But for just the 6505+ head and footswitch I guess €800 would be fair. What price were you thinking?
hobnob 3 years ago
intrest in any of my adds?
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Sorry, hobnob, dont think i'm looking for a trade. Cheers anyway.
hobnob 3 years ago
sorry would only have 500 for it at the moment, il might get back to ya another time
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
No problem. €500 is a bit lower than i'm hoping for. (Good luck with your ads by the way, savage razorback!)
mjsb1 3 years ago
May be able to buy this if I can get the amp in my ads gone.
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Nice one. Hope you find a sale for the amp so. Keep me posted anyway. Good luck!

just few questions. Does transformer work? Is the switch on the back to switch between 120v and 240?
How are the pre amp valves and did u revalve for a reason ( i mean did a valve blow )
Sorry for all the questions:-)
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Hey there,
I amn't inculding a transformer in the price but its running fine through an old transformer that was lying around the house. (for an american waffle maker i think)

There is no switch at the back for converting voltages im afraid, the transformer has to do that. Just plugging the amp into the wall by using a simple adapter wouldn't be possible.

The pre-amp valves are still the stock ones that came with it. The amp still sounds great so they must be OK.

I replaced the stock ruby tubes with new ones simply because I heard they wear out after about a year. To be honest I doubt it really needed to be done because the amp was used so little. I never heard any lessenig of sound quality anyway.

Hope that answers your questions. If you have any more, or if you want me to send you some extra pictures just let me know.

Will it run on a step down power supply? Did amp come from the usa or something?
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Yes, the head came from music123.com (an american website) so it needs a step down transformer to work.

I've searched around online and they're easy to find and are pretty cheap.
If it's an absolute dealbreaker for anyone i could include the transformer i've been using (it is old and pretty damaged however).
lelu999 3 years ago
Im interested dude, but i ll hav to hav a think on it
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Ya, no problem. Take your time.
If you're anywhere near Tralee feel free to drop by and test it out.

Trade for the Jackson in my adds ?
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
You're selling your Jackson for €850. I dont think that would be a smart trade on my part...
I'm looking for a cash sale anyway.

Thanks for the interest.
Takemyscars72 3 years ago
Sorry mate , forgot to say for the head only ive already got a decent cab , I could go 800 if youd be willing to wait about a week or 2 for me to come down and collect it ?Cash offer is also for head only
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Ahh ok that makes more sense! I'd definitely consider selling the head for €800.
If noone has made any other offers by the time you'd be able to collect then i'll give you a definite answer .
Shreddy-Krueger 3 years ago
for the head , also could you meet somewhere ? Just im up in Armagh and Kerry's a long way away :L
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Hey there, Takemyscars72 has first shot at the head for €800 if noone makes a better offer. (and he said he could collect it).

I was hoping for a bit more considering the head sells new for about €1,500.
I dont have a car anymore, so meeting halfway with people would be difficult (not impossible though).
On the 6th i will be in Cork and could bring it wih me in case anyone is interested.
Shreddy-Krueger 3 years ago
Right Man , no bother ill see if I can get anymore cash and ill check bus times just incase , whereabouts in Kerry are you ?
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Im in Tralee. About a 10 min walk from the bus station. (I could get a drive with the amp to the station no bother after you've had a look at it)
Shreddy-Krueger 3 years ago
Savage Man , ive a few cousins in Tralee who I havent seen in ages so it could be an excuse to come down haha , no problem just let me know what the story is when you get the chance. :)
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Ha nice one. Could be people I know!
Well the situation is that Takemyscars72 is still first in line as he has made the highest offer first, and is willing to collect it.

I'm going to hold out a bit longer and see if someone will take it for a higher price. €800 is still a bit lower than i was planning on selling for.
lelu999 3 years ago
Hi. Im still layed up and will b for a while interested in bout head and cab. Best i can do is giv u a shout when outa hospital dude. Best of luck wit sale in the mean time
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Sorry to hear you're in hospital.
Sure if the equipment still hasn't been bought by the time you're out just post that you're interested.
Anyway, hope you're outta there soon.
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Havn't had much activity on the ad for a while.


@Shreddy Krueger, if you still want the head you can have first call at it for €800.

Anyone else who's interested in the equipment just post and we can work out a price.

Just wanted to say that both the Head & Cab are still for sale.

penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Cheers for the offer lelu but i'm still not looking for a trade.

Thanks again.

Still open to any offers.
lelu999 3 years ago

So if u need anything like that just let me know. Everything will b on ebay and donedeal by the weekend.
penguinpoppers 3 years ago

Thanks again.
Foxx 3 years ago
My dream amp! These things are beasts!
Sadly I don't have enough to afford it in the near future... But to anyone looking at this ad! Don't pass up this amp at this price! It's fantastic!

I know you don't want trades but... I guess I'll give it a shot because I love these amps so much! :L

Any interest in any of my ads or any of the following?

Behringer Pb1000 pedalboard (Holds and powers up to 12 pedals).
Boss Metalcore pedal (Distortion Pedal).
Alesis Multimix 8fx (Mixer).
Korg Toneworks Ax1000g (Guitar Effects Pedal).
Peavey TNT 150 (Bass Amp).
Schecter Omen 6 (Guitar in black).
Behringer Bass V-Amp (Bass effects and amp models).
H&H Pro 100 Speakers (P.a speakers 100 watt a side).
JBL M Series 355 MKii Bass Bins.
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Hey Foxx,
Glad to hear you approve of the amp!
Sorry to hear you can't afford it at the moment.

It is a great piece of equipment but I just don't have room for it anymore.

Still holding out for a cash deal but good luck with your ads all the same.

Hope you get your hands on your dream amp sometime soon!
jballs 3 years ago
hey man is this still going if it is i would offer ya my esp im afraid its i cant offer cash with it but its a lot smaller than an amp :) and a beauty of an guitar to boot :)
jballs 3 years ago
even if you like the guitar give pm me and we can try sort somthing out :)
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Thanks for the interest jballs.

That guitar is very nice but im happy with the ones I have at the moment.
Still looking for a cash deal only.

Because i'd really prefer to sell the head and cab at the same time, ill lower the price to 1,200 for BOTH.

I'm still open to offers for the head and cab individually though.
jballs 3 years ago
that's no problem dude being honest im looking for cash myself but in seeing this amp i couldn't not suggest a trade i highly recommend this amp as has foxx if people have the 1200 theyd be a fool to pass this up best of luck with the sale dude

penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Once again, thank you for the interest but i'm looking to make a CASH ONLY deal.
Good look with your ads.
selwyn 3 years ago
No worries. I could be back to you in the near future with a cash offer when i sell the line 6. Cheers
Foxx 3 years ago
I've been saving up and I've managed to get 500 quid. Any chance you'd let the head go at that price?
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Hey Foxx,

I honestly couldnt let the head go for that price.
It's a great piece of equipment and is definitely worth a bit more.

Lowest i'll go for the head is €800.

Lowest for the cab is €500.

Buy them together and i'll sell for €1,200
lelu99910 3 years ago
I'm willing to work with u on price but a decent 220/240 transformorer is 200 euros and then to amp completely the mercury output transformer upgrade will hav to b done so that's another 200 euro. But it's up to u on it
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Just had a quick look there on amazon and found this transformer for £45. Im sure I could find some better deals if I looked a bit harder.


Like i said, if it's an absolute dealbreaker I can include the transformer i've been using.

Once you have the amp plugged into the transformer you're good to go.

I don't understand what you mean by "the mercury output transformer upgrade will have to be done".

Its in perfect working condition at the moment and is ready to be tested if anyone wants to see it in action.
Chris_Craig 3 years ago
If I sell the stuff in my ads very soon Ill give you the 800 for the head
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Sounds good.
Just let me know when you have the money.

The head's yours for €800, but If someone makes me an offer for the head an cab together before you're ready to buy then they get priority.

Looking forward to hearing from you Chris.

Yeah that's grand sure fair is fair

how bout an Opel omega 2.5 v6. Taxed and ncted
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
No activity on the ad for a long time so FINAL PRICE DROP TO €1000 (for both).
It's an absolute steal for that price but I need the money.
maurycy.welt 3 years ago
Hi penguinpoppers. I can buy a cabinet of you. Have Peavey 6505+ head already. My cash offer is 300euro. The only problem is I live in Dublin. If you are going to visit Dublin any time soon - let me know. Dan
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Making the drive to Dublin would be a pain but isn't out of the quesion.
I'm looking to sell the cab by itself for a higher price so for €300 i definitely wouldnt be willing to make the trip.
Thanks for the offer all the same.
witchmerule 3 years ago
Is it still available?
penguinpoppers 3 years ago
Yes. Both the head and cab are still for sale.
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
I'm willing to go as low as €400 for the cab at this stage.
I'd consider letting the head gor for around €750.
Both together for €1000.
maurycy.welt 2 years ago
380€ cash in hand offer - still valid (+30€ if you can drop it to Dublin). Can collect it from Heuston or Connolly Train Station.
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
€400 is still the lowest i'll consider.
With the hassle of getting to Dublin and back i'm going to have to say thanks for the offer but no.
If you could collect it from either cork or kerry then its yours for €400
Thanks again,
c-ryan 2 years ago
Hey there,

If the Head is still up here after Nov21st-ish I'll definitely buy it from you! If you find a buyer before then thats grand!
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
Sounds good.
If you want to view it/try it out at any stage just let me know.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
404 2 years ago
for the head
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
@404: If you collect it i'd leave it go for €700.
You can test it out in either Bandon or Tralee.
Let me know what you think.
c-ryan 2 years ago
Hey man. If you could bring just the head to Galway I'll take it for 700, Give you some gas money too. I live in Mayo so meeting in the middle seems the best idea to me. What do you say?
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
I'd could accept €700 plus petrol money. We'd need to discuss the specifics but i'm ok with leaving it go at that price.
Any chance you'd be willing to meet somewhere closer? I'd be driving from the South of Cork.
c-ryan 2 years ago
Could probably get the bus as far as Limerick city if that suits you?
c-ryan 2 years ago
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
Ya Limerick is more than fair. I could definitely drive it there.
If you're willing to pay for petrol, along with €700 I can accept and we can move forward.
c-ryan 2 years ago
You have a deal man!
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
Good stuff.
I'll PM you my mobile number and email so we can organise meeting up.
I could probably send you on a video of it in action since you'd be buying before trying it out?
Anyway, i'll talk to ya soon.
Metalheart2012 2 years ago
Hi! I am interested as well in that items so if you dont make a deal let me know,please. Reagresd M
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
No problem, cheers for the interest. I'll keep you posted with whatever happens.
lelu99910 2 years ago
Is this still for sale?
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
Have agreed to sell the head for €725 and we are trying to organise a day to make the swap.
I'm still open to offers for the cab however.
lelu99910 2 years ago
Cool, I d b interested in cab,how much?
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
I've been offered €420 for the cab if I drive it to Dublin. But with the cost for petrol and the hassle of actually making the trip €420 was just too low.

I would be willing to let it go for €400 if it's collected.
lelu99910 2 years ago
is head sold?
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
Sorry for the slow reply.
The head was sold yesterday to c-ryan so it is GONE.

Still looking to sell the cab though.
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
OK, I have a week off work coming up so i'd be able to deliver the cab to anyone who's interested then.

Having said that, i'm in Cork and I really don't want to carry the cab across the entire country.
Anyway, if someone is willing to collect it from Cork that would be fantastic.

I have to sell it in the near future as I will be moving, so it's time to sell it on adverts or give it to a friend for cheap.
playmaster 2 years ago
If you will deliver to Cork as I have no transport.
penguinpoppers 2 years ago
Yeah I could drop it into the city no bother, but not for €350.
Look, since you live so close and I need to get it moved soon i'll meet you halfway at €375.

I'll be in the city next Wednesday/Thursday.
Let me know what ya think.
playmaster 2 years ago
ok, PM with the address sent
