US instrument retailers voted the Peavey 6505 Plus 112 guitar amp the Best New Instrument Amplifier of 2010 in the annual Music & Sound Awards.

From the press release:

“The Peavey 6505 Series has earned its place in rock history as the guitar amplifiers of choice for an extensive range of top rock and country artists,” said Hartley Peavey, Founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics Corporation. “We took on the challenge of creating a 1×12 combo version of the full-size 6505 Plus amplifier that lived up to its high standards for tone, and we’re proud of the results. We’re honored that our dealers share our enthusiasm for the Peavey 6505 112 Plus combo.

The Peavey 6505 artist roster includes contemporary metal stars such as Machine Head, Trivium, Bullet For My Valentine, and The Devil Wears Prada, rockers Ted Nugent and Black Stone Cherry, country artist Bo Garrett (Montgomery Gentry) and many more.

The Peavey 6505 Plus 112 combo harnesses the full gain and legendary tone of the Peavey 6505 Series into a 1×12, 60-watt combo-amp configuration for the first time. Five select 12AX7 preamp tubes and a pair of 6L6GC power-amp tubes provide the tonal foundation for the amplifier, while patented circuitry such as Peavey’s Resonance and Presence controls let players personalize its legendary tone. Both the Lead and Rhythm channels feature independent three-band EQ, pre/post gain controls and Presence and Resonance adjustment. The Rhythm channel also includes a footswitchable Crunch boost.”
