Peavey 6505 amp

Peavey has parted with Edward Van Halen after a 13-year partnership. Peavey collaborated with the guitarist on his signature-model Peavey Wolfgang* Series electric guitars and Peavey 5150* Series amplifiers.

According to the company, Van Halen retains the rights to the names 5150 and Wolfgang, as well as certain design elements of the Wolfgang guitar, but the 5150's circuitry and tone will remain in the Peavey family as the 6505* amplifier. Peavey will launch the new 6505—named in celebration of Peavey's first forty years, 1965 to 2005—at the Winter NAMM Expo, January 20-24, 2005, in Anaheim, Calif.

Peavey will also debut its Carina (Italian for 'beautiful') guitars to replace the Wolfgang. Carina* Series guitars highlight many of Peavey features used in the Wolfgang and other Peavey guitars, including computer-shaped necks that reportedly ensure that all Carina guitars exhibit a consistent, comfortable neck radius and superior playability.

The 5150 Series guitar amplifiers and Wolfgang electric guitars have been endorsed by such artists as Ted Nugent, 3 Doors Down and Default, metal bands Atreyu, Darkest Hour and God Forbid, and even power-punkers such as Visqueen.

"I'm very proud of the work we accomplished with Edward," says Peavey founder and CEO Hartley Peavey. "The 5150 Series has earned its place as a rock guitar standard, and the Wolfgang is a staple in the pantheon of rock instrumentation. They're both well-respected pieces, and I'm glad we could bring those to life.”
