    OT: Both the Classic 20 and 6505 MH look super cool. If I was in the market for a new tube amp, I'd pick one up for sure.

    I hope the low price tag is going to stay low for european players... The mini 6505 is exactly what I need for my home rig!

    Even if it's expensive in Europe, you can ship one across. The voltage is switchable.
    That's what I'm thinking of doing.

    What? Wait for a worthy example before passing judgement. This is the internet my friend, we'll have none of that kind of rational talk here.

    Hyped for this! I mean obviously it won't sound 100% like a 120w head version, but it'll probably be pretty close (similar to the 60w 6505+ combo more maybe) and with those features it sure seems pretty nice.

    Someone will do a metal demo. But I think we've all seen "rock" demos of amps used for metal and can get an idea if they suck or not. Most of us know what to expect from EL84s. I think it sounds good, better than the Valveking, imao. I was floored with how loud my Ironball could get with a 4x12. Yeah, it's no Powerball, but it shook the room. This will be a killer amp for whatever the hell you want it for, and with the silent recording ability, sold.

    I was lucky enough to get a chance to play the mini 6505 at the peavey booth today and I plan on getting one as soon as my finances permit me to do so!!!

    I am also very excited to try out the XLR out after talking to one of the engineers. They really packed some great features into this little guy and I don't think it will disappoint.

    Any more details on the XLR out? What cab sim they implemented there. It is not defeatable, right? Does USB output allow you to record without cab sim at all?(in hopes to apply DAW IR's).

    Has this been posted yet? If so I'm sorry haha, at least I don't think I saw a link to this vid. Sounds pretty good to me! Nice and thick.

    Sounds OK but better to have someone who plays actual Metal to show what the amp can do. Someone not using single coils as well.

    I didn't get any info on the USB output but we talked for like half an hour about the XLR out. There was a lot of terminology I didn't understand so bear with me lol.

    So the output is simulating an SM57 one inch off the edge of the cone. It's pretty much the same DI out that they developed for Joe Satriani's sig cab many years ago. What they're doing different for these is instead of placing the direct out directly after the preamp (or on the back of the cabinet) its going after the power amp. Don't know quite how it works but he said the LPF they used sounds pretty damn good. I wish I would have got more info but there was one hour left in the show and I needed to frantically find every booth I had forgotten about...

    So they are using an IR from a few years ago?? I seriously doubt it will sound good DI unfortunately. It therefore surprises me that so many people are excited about the silent recording feature. It won't be very versatile at all.

    I'm guessing (and hoping) around the £500 mark or a bit more. Usually it goes dollar for pound more or less!

    The guy at the local place strongly suggested that I could get one for 4 fiddy.

    He has been selling me Peaveys since my first Rage 108 in 1991 though. :D
