High Gain Tube Amp

From ’91 through ’94, Peavey manufactured Eddie Van Halen’s signature 5150 amplifier. When the two parties parted ways, the model was renamed the 6505. This ad, from Guitar World, January 1992, came out squarely in the Sammy Hagar era, following VH’s For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge.

Did you know that the four “Van Hagar” albums all went to #1 in the U.S., the only VH releases to do so?
