    Misha, a big time congrats to you on your signature amp!

    I've read that the Invective is voiced after the 6505. Just how voiced after the 6505 is it? How would you personally describe the comparisons between these two amps , and how does it perform at bedroom levels? I am also curious about the hiss/noise that the 6505 naturally has. Is this amp any quieter (minus the built in gate)? Thanks!

    Those questions have probably been answered as good as they will be answered until the amp is in the hands of people.

    He spends the first few minutes answering your first question. Start at 1:20


    I can't remember where but the bedroom question has been answered, apparently it does bedroom levels well. This next video seems to back that up. Pay attention to the string noise and the clicking of the switches, the amp sounds loud but when you consider those sounds it can't be, it just sounds huge at those low volumes giving the impression that it is very loud. I'm still not convinced it is quiet enough for any and every bedroom but I think I could get away with it.


    As for the last question, on channel 2/3 I doubt it. I think the answer to the first question most likely answers that. If anything I'd expect it has the potential to be worse. Not that it matters, the amp will no doubt have a very high quality gate. His gate has always been an important part of his chain and he can use any gate he wants, I doubt he would want an inferior gate fitted to his amp, he wouldn't use it if it wasn't comparable to his current gate. On channel 1 I suspect noise isn't an issue based on what has been said.

    This post is just what I suspect based on the videos we have all watched and the comments I have seen here and other places.

    El Caco, I think that's probably correct on all points. I know he mentions that it sounds great at bedroom levels and gives a little example in that top video from NAMM you linked. I'm not sure what time in the video, but it's definitely in there. Also, Misha stated he lives in an apartment, and I'm guessing that bottom video is taken in that apartment. Like you, I'm betting he's playing pretty quietly in that demo.

    I'm curious if this actually happens and/or if Peavey actually has units available/shipping at that time.

    Haha. Maybe but that doesn't affect me...I'm on the west coast. I certainly hope it goes well and that someone records some good video. I'm a little tired of watching the same three videos over and over on YT. :D

    I know they will have one tomorrow and that it will be for sale with the one condition that you can only take it home once the event is done since we need it haha

    What I am still not clear on is whether its really made in the USA. On the back of the amp it says "designed and engineered In the USA". From what I understand peavey closed its USA amp making facility. Unless this is being made wherever the buddas are being made but usually when peavey makes something in the states it aint leaving the factory without at least one American flag on it and loud and proud "made in usa" on the back. Not that I even care if it was made in china. I just think people should be able to know either way.
