Just in time for a world tour in support of Declaration, the epic new document of dark metal from Bleeding Through, guitarist Jona Weinhofen has discovered his match in his Peavey PXD™ Tragic™ guitar and Peavey 6505® all- tube, high-gain guitar amplifier.

“After years of experimenting with different gear, I've finally found the perfect guitar and amp combo,” he said. “The warm sound and playability of my PXD guitar, combined with the high gain and tone of my 6505, are perfect for me to shred all night long!”

The Australian-born guitarist made his studio debut with Bleeding Through on Declaration, a career-defining album built upon the band’s trademarked foundation of muscular riffing and eerie atmospherics. Bleeding Through embarked on the Peavey PXD-sponsored No Fear® Music Tour shortly after completing the album and will continue touring with Bullet For My Valentine into the fall.

With supercharged active pickups and menacing slabs of tone-sustaining mahogany, Peavey PXD guitars harness the sound of aggression in four shred machines built for speed, slicing leads and razor-sharp riffs.

The Peavey PXD Series includes four distinct models—the Tomb™, Twenty-Three™, Tragic™ and Void™—with a range of feature options including Kahler® tremolos, adjustable bridges with a string-through design and wicked body shapes that ship with Coffin Case® hard cases or gig bags. PXD guitars also feature high-output, active Peavey VFL™ pickups or EMG® pickups with the EMG-AB Afterburner tone circuit, which boosts input gain up to 20 dB for the highest levels of saturation.

For more than 15 years, the Peavey 6505 Series amplifiers have defined the sound of aggressive music. From the fury of Trivium, Bullet For My Valentine and Machine Head to the crossover punk of Story Of The Year—and virtually every artist whose tones have been at the mercy of producers Andy Sneap and Jason Suecof—the Peavey 6505 amp is the blueprint for metal guitar tone. Check out to learn more about the legacy and tone of the Peavey 6505.
