Ontario natives, Uplift, have been working their asses off the past few years to bring their brand of positive hardcore to you. Recently guitarist Sam Checchia revealed what piece of equipment he feels helps him bring the energy and crunch behind his riffs. Check out what he had to say.

What one piece of equipment do you use to obtain your signature sound?
Sam: The one piece of gear I use to get my signature sound is my Peavey 6505+ head.

What about it makes it so important to you?
Sam: It’s important to me because I can get the clear crisp, punchy distortion that I enjoy/use in Uplift.

What are the major pros and cons?
Sam: Some major pros would be that the head is very durable/affordable and has the perfect distortion tone for me. The only con that I’ve noticed is that the clean tone isn’t the greatest. But other than that I love it.

How long have you used this piece of equipment and would you ever change it?
Sam: I’ve had the head for about 3.5 years now, and I don’t think that I’d change it. I might use a Marshal JCM 800 at some point, but not any time in the near future.

Any final thoughts or comments on the gear?
Sam: If you’re looking for an amp that is very versatile for heavy music, I highly recommend the Peavey 6505+.
