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.

hobnob asked a question 14/11/2011 11:14 pm (3 years ago):
how much for just the head and footswitch?
penguinpoppers says 14/11/2011 11:27 pm (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 asked a question 15/11/2011 1:41 am (3 years ago):
intrest in any of my adds?
penguinpoppers says 15/11/2011 8:35 am (3 years ago):
Sorry, hobnob, dont think i'm looking for a trade. Cheers anyway.
hobnob asked a question 15/11/2011 11:08 am (3 years ago):
sorry would only have 500 for it at the moment, il might get back to ya another time
penguinpoppers says 15/11/2011 8:22 pm (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 asked a question 18/11/2011 12:02 am (3 years ago):
May be able to buy this if I can get the amp in my ads gone.
penguinpoppers says 18/11/2011 8:22 am (3 years ago):
Nice one. Hope you find a sale for the amp so. Keep me posted anyway. Good luck!
lelu999 asked a question 18/11/2011 10:22 pm (3 years ago):
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 says 18/11/2011 10:57 pm (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.

lelu999 asked a question 18/11/2011 11:16 pm (3 years ago):
Will it run on a step down power supply? Did amp come from the usa or something?
penguinpoppers says 18/11/2011 11:41 pm (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 asked a question 18/11/2011 11:55 pm (3 years ago):
Im interested dude, but i ll hav to hav a think on it
penguinpoppers says 19/11/2011 12:23 am (3 years ago):
Ya, no problem. Take your time.
If you're anywhere near Tralee feel free to drop by and test it out.
Takemyscars72 asked a question 22/11/2011 5:34 pm (3 years ago):
Trade for the Jackson in my adds ?
penguinpoppers says 22/11/2011 5:40 pm (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 asked a question 22/11/2011 5:43 pm (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 says 22/11/2011 6:24 pm (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 placed offer 22/11/2011 7:37 pm (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 says 22/11/2011 8:04 pm (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 asked a question 22/11/2011 8:34 pm (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 says 22/11/2011 8:59 pm (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 asked a question 22/11/2011 9:07 pm (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 says 22/11/2011 9:35 pm (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 asked a question 28/11/2011 11:25 pm (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 says 29/11/2011 8:39 pm (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 says 02/12/2011 9:23 am (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.
Audio Reaver asked a question 07/12/2011 1:24 am (3 years ago):
would you be interested in trading the head for the twin reverb in my adds?
penguinpoppers says 07/12/2011 11:40 am (3 years ago):
Sorry, I have a smaller amp I use for practising.
Not interested in a trade anyway.
Thanks all the same.

Sorry but no.
Not looking for trade.
penguinpoppers says 23/01/2012 12:36 pm (3 years ago):
Starting to realise that listing this just before Christmas may not have been such a good idea...

Just wanted to say that both the Head & Cab are still for sale.
lelu999 asked a question 25/01/2012 1:28 pm (3 years ago):

penguinpoppers says 25/01/2012 9:11 pm (3 years ago):
Cheers for the offer lelu but i'm still not looking for a trade.
If i sell it I am actually planning on putting the money towards a car, but I have a specific one lined up.
Thanks again.

Still open to any offers.
lelu999 asked a question 25/01/2012 9:52 pm (3 years ago):

Thanks again.
Foxx asked a question 07/03/2012 12:51 pm (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 says 07/03/2012 9:39 pm (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 asked a question 08/04/2012 11:32 pm (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 asked a question 09/04/2012 1:18 am (3 years ago):
even if you like the guitar give pm me and we can try sort somthing out :)
penguinpoppers says 09/04/2012 11:43 am (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 asked a question 09/04/2012 1:14 pm (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
selwyn asked a question 13/04/2012 12:32 pm (3 years ago):

penguinpoppers says 13/04/2012 1:19 pm (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 asked a question 13/04/2012 1:25 pm (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 asked a question 02/05/2012 2:41 am (2 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 says 02/05/2012 8:16 am (2 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 asked a question 15/05/2012 2:06 pm (2 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 says 15/05/2012 4:45 pm (2 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 placed offer 16/05/2012 7:12 pm (2 years ago):
If I sell the stuff in my ads very soon Ill give you the 800 for the head
penguinpoppers says 16/05/2012 9:51 pm (2 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.
Chris_Craig asked a question 16/05/2012 10:06 pm (2 years ago):
Yeah that's grand sure fair is fair
lelu99910 asked a question 09/07/2012 2:02 am (2 years ago):

penguinpoppers says 03/10/2012 12:14 pm (2 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 asked a question 04/10/2012 12:25 pm (2 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 says 04/10/2012 11:17 pm (2 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 asked a question 07/10/2012 10:06 am (2 years ago):
Is it still available?
penguinpoppers says 07/10/2012 10:18 am (2 years ago):
Yes. Both the head and cab are still for sale.
penguinpoppers says 17/10/2012 8:29 am (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 placed offer 29/10/2012 4:47 am (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 says 29/10/2012 11:37 pm (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 asked a question 06/11/2012 6:17 pm (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 says 06/11/2012 6:25 pm (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 placed offer 08/11/2012 3:19 pm (2 years ago):
for the head
penguinpoppers says 09/11/2012 11:12 am (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 asked a question 25/11/2012 11:39 pm (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 says 26/11/2012 6:01 pm (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 asked a question 26/11/2012 6:28 pm (2 years ago):
Could probably get the bus as far as Limerick city if that suits you?
c-ryan placed offer 26/11/2012 10:31 pm (2 years ago):
penguinpoppers says 26/11/2012 10:56 pm (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 asked a question 27/11/2012 12:13 am (2 years ago):
You have a deal man!
penguinpoppers says 27/11/2012 10:42 am (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 asked a question 01/12/2012 7:11 pm (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 says 01/12/2012 7:37 pm (2 years ago):
No problem, cheers for the interest. I'll keep you posted with whatever happens.
lelu99910 asked a question 05/12/2012 9:01 am (2 years ago):
Is this still for sale?
penguinpoppers says 05/12/2012 12:02 pm (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 asked a question 06/12/2012 4:14 am (2 years ago):
Cool, I d b interested in cab,how much?
penguinpoppers says 06/12/2012 8:46 am (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 asked a question 13/12/2012 8:53 pm (2 years ago):
is head sold?
penguinpoppers says 17/12/2012 10:37 am (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 says 04/02/2013 4:03 pm (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 placed offer 10/02/2013 3:32 pm (2 years ago):
If you will deliver to Cork as I have no transport.
penguinpoppers says 10/02/2013 4:49 pm (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 placed offer 10/02/2013 6:04 pm (2 years ago):
ok, PM with the address sent
