    What preamp tubes does it come with? The website says it comes with JJ power tubes but doesn't mention which preamp tubes.

    I think 12AX7's are practically a given for a high gain amp, Im sure he's asking the brand of preamp tubes.

    does it have a self biasing feature for using other tube types?
    KT88's would be sweet etc.

    Yes its been confirmed by people on the internet but has anyone seen a "made in the usa" mark anywhere on the product or even the box? Again I know Misha and reps for sweetwater say its made in the USA. So why does the product NOT say that. It does make a claim on the website to be USA made. I'm just really surprised they didn't put it on the actual amp. Maybe "engineered" is replacing "made" in this case.

    Yes, I'm asking about brand. Those power amp tubes are great, I had a pair of JJ's in my 6505+. I hope they're not just cheap Chinese tubes.

    You're pretty much not going to see "Made In the USA" on anything electronic anymore due to legislation in California. Most electronics components (capacitors, resistors, etc etc) are not made in the US and Cali law no longer allows you to label an item as "Made In the USA" unless a high percentage of components are made in USA as well as the product itself.

    That's not to say I'm not curious about where the new Peavey USA gear (guitars and amps) are being manufactured as I'd love to see info on the new facilities.

    Misha was demoing this at my local Guitar Center yesterday, but I got there too late and he was getting in his car when I pulled into the parking lot. Some people were jamming on it in the store afterwards and it sounded amazing. :djent:

    Peavey was doing 20% off all their products that day too.:agreed:

    It was already mentioned that Sweetwater is marking it that way. On the amp itself it says "Designed and Engineered"

    So they'll do 20% off the amp if you go to one of these things?

    Wow thats a great tid-bit i was unaware of. Thanks I had no idea that was the case. But it sure would explain why the wording would be different. Thanks!

    Yeah different companies are doing different things to get around it... IIRC Friedman is using "Hand Wired in Los Angeles, CA" these days.

    I think it's just to avoid legal issues when a lot of the parts are sourced from outside the US, mainly because you can't even get a lot of those parts from the US anymore.

    I don't believe so, as it was explained to me, it was just that store and that day. I didn't even know about it until I got there.

    I have been using a peavey 6505 with my band. This one sounds great as well. Looking forward to test it.

    They even applied the 20% off to Peavey products ordered at the store that day too, not just what was on physically on the shelf. So I ended up ordering a Peavey Classic Mini for $100 off. :fever:

    Seeing that the amp was out for an in store demo recently, I just called guitar center again for an update, they now tell me it is backordered until September 18th....
