iamqman's review "Cool little amp"

3
Peavey is a great company and their prices are reflective of that care for the budget of most consumers. They continue to put out great sounding pieces of gear for extremely affordable prices. Even there highest end amplifiers are well under $1500.

This little amp is a great practice amp. It has a powerful 65 watts which in many cases is too much for practice. also these come with the transtube technology which is about the best way you can get a close tube amp sound out of a solid state amp.

SOUNDS

This amp is a little gem of an amp. You can get a decent but not great clean tone and a good high gain tone as well. I have never been a fan of the Peavey clean tones. They seem to have very little life or soul in them. However, that isn't why most people look to Peavey for their amplifier needs.

People go to Peavey for one good prices and also great high gain amps. This amp has a sweet sounding high gain tone that is very forgiving and fun to play around with. The amp is very forgiving and easy to play. If you have ever spend time on a VHT or a Splawn then you will know how tight and unforgiving those amps can be. This one is loose on the distortion side.

OVERALL OPINION

I am not sure what the going rate for these amps are now a days. They couldn't be too much money. I have seen them depending on the features as low as $100 and all the way up to $250. Not sure exactly what the differences were as I wasn't looking to buy but they are relatively inexpensive to own.

I would recommend this to anyone who needs a good sounding multi channel amp for a good price. This will be a good practice amp and not designed for stages really. You can play them on stage somewhere but you might get an ear full from a the sound man.

I found this amp in conroe texas, brand new for 319.00 but I got a footswitch for free, also brand new, the store dealt only with peavey amps. I checked all through the town, no other place had a better one for metal. A pawn shop had a marshall 212, but it sounded like crap, not heavy enough. So i went back to the music store.

The UMPH from the 12. I have been playing for 6 1/2 years. This amp is very versatile and you can make it sound like guns n roses, pantera, danzig, black label society, ozzy ozzbourne, marilyn manson, basically anything, its amazing. I didnt know that 65 watts could get that loud. Palm muting this thing like pantera made my house walls and floor shake on level 3! Reverb is cool to, solos are bad ace too.

UMMM, not really anything, it has an external speaker jack so if you think its not loud enough, you can hook up anything with 8 ohms.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It seems sturdy, its not that heavy 32 pounds?.!

i love it the t dynamics are awesome, on 100%, also its just amazing on how much JUJUJUJUJU (palm muting) really makes your brains become a blender.

MGR/Tommytune's review "Peavey Studio Pro Transtube II"

My sister has this amp - I had a Peavey Transtube I - I liked hers so much more I had to have one. I found it on E-Bay and scored it for $140.00 used - normally you'd pay around $275 - to $300 for one new!

This unit is 65 watts - - the next unit down - the Envoy - doesen't have the headroom to jam with a drummer, and the next model up -the Bandit - is a little more substantial than I need for a primarly basement/backstage application.

No one will get it confused with a tremoverb - but then again - show me what other amp in this price range does as credible a job from clean to blues to cruncheroo.

OK - the reverb on this unit will not have Fender Fullerton engineers shaking in their Doc Martens. Nor are your going to keep Jim Marshall awake at night. Having said that - show me what YOUR $300 amp will do (especially of you get it for 140)!

Construction is OK - some screws do come loose on some Peavey's I've had over the years - eg on the reverb tank (did I say tank? - I meant thimble). Other than that they have a nicer feel to them than the teal pre-transtube plastic Peaveys.

Otherwise

IF you want:
1) something loud enough to jam with (or even live un miked - my sis does in smallish clubs)
2) have a limited budget
3) want the most flexibility for the $

then...
you can't go wrong with one of these Transtube II's - the I's were better than some 12AX7-equipped hybrids that I have tried (or owned) and the II's are that much better again.

This equipment is not Mesa/Boogie - but kicks the crap out of everything else in the price range.

If ther was a 4.5 I would give it that.

See other reviews. I still accurate than mine (the series more morden I do not know) has an analog reverb.

UTILIZATION

We do is use more traditional and simpler. I've never had to open the manual. The equalization is effective, and the types of sounds are all different. For the simulation knob lamps, there is hardly a difference between level 0 and the maximum ... In

SOUNDS

sound, light, sounds very "transistor" very neutral, cold, but well balanced and very accurate. Equalization and the selector "modern / vintage" allows you to play all the guitars. Do not expect to play blues or funk with a nice sound, but jazz is pretty cool (especially with a friend Parker, equipped with SD SH2 and SH4:) ).
In Lead, 3 different positions: the "vintage", which is a pretty bold crunch, with a large amplitude. This is the sound as pleasant on that channel. the "modern", a typical metal, perfect for train harmonics, tapping and the technical demonstrations. Careful though not to put too much gain, it drools a lot and a big mash could leave your speakerphone! However, this allowed me muddy side, I began lorqui, overcome my faults But gambling attention to feedback, it is still there! I think the position higain "is a horror, screaming, without soul, I've never used.
Honestly, for distos could use some work. Prefer pedals.
I like the reverb on this amp, if not exceed one quarter of its travel, except if you want to know how it feels to play in a cathedral.

OVERALL OPINION

I use for almost 5 years. I then had a limited budget, modeling was not very accurate at the time and quite expensive.
I have not changed because of funding, but I use this amp with pedals always, whether for a clear sound (with a slight boost) or distortion. However, it is quite powerful, reliable and speaker quality is good.
But now this amp is exceeded, for the price you can have with modeling amps sound much better and versatile folds.
On occasion, you can find around 100 €, which is not bad considering the power of this amp, provided they have pedals.
With experience and today I would not make that choice. I prefer a Line 6 or Epiphone Valve Junior, a Roland Cube seen, albeit less powerful, but much better in this price range.

This amp is a 65W amp transistors with a HP 12 inch Blue Marvel. It possde two guitar input (low and high), an effects loop, a plug for the footswitch which is optional, an output to an external speaker and a headphone output. We also have a 3 band equalizer (low, med and high) on each channel and a rverbe rglage and T-Dynamics. Each channel has a volume indpendant and offers DIFFERENT types of sounds switchable by a lever: "Vintage" and "Modern" channel for clean and "Vintage", "Modern" and "High Gain" channel for the lead . The connection is not bad and are rglages plutt complete overall. I just find that it lacks an outlet to be able to be transplanted in a mixer at concert for example. For cons, I never worked rverb same passage APRS workshop.

UTILIZATION

Setup is a breeze, we arrive easily find the sound is looking for the manual for the make up the numbers as the amp is clear and simple to use. The leaflet gives examples of rglages but I do not see good rev ... However I find the knobs ragissent trs well, particularly for the earnings rgler trs prcis I think.

SOUNDS

I mainly play rock, hard rock, and this is clearly mtal with its field of use. I play it with a Fender Highway One Stratocaster or Gibson Les Paul Classic and I find that the grain of each guitar is made well enough for an amp transistors. For its clear, I put myself in position plutt "Vintage" because I find the sounds warmer and they are as close as a lamp that amp "Modern", which is cool. In distortion, I use the method "vintage" for blues, rock, hard rock from the 60-70 in the spirit of Led Zeppelin, AC / DC at low saturation, Jimi Hendrix, "modern" for the big mtal very heavy, "high gain" to play such as Iron Maiden. The amp may be a little low bard, so rgler based guitarist, but thanks to the palm-mute trs are well made and strong. As a group, it is powerful enough to agree, but it must be rgler because I found a little behind compared to other amps: when I play with the other guitarist in my group, which has a Marshall MG50DFX, I do not get much volume trs gal and only after small adjustments to the qualisation I resurfaced

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this amp when I beginners guitar, 3 years ago and it satisfies me. Trs is versatile and comes out a good sound. The report qualitprix trs is good (bought new for 299), as usual with Peavey. It is powerful enough to play in rpter and medium-sized rooms (possibly picked up by a microphone) and it is not too bulky. Only default: no footswitch supplied with the amp or if anything wrong.

As cit below is a small 65W amp transistors with a HP 12-inch "Blue Marvel", very practical for personal work and for RPTES (I not grow above of 5 / 10 by volume), it possde two guitar input (low and high impdance for passive and active guitars), a switchable effects loop, footswitch socket for an optional, output to an external speaker and a headphone output (useful for work at night).
Rglages level, we have a 3 band equalizer (low, med and high) on each channel and a rverbe and rglage effect "Transtube" (tube emulation) common to both channels . Each channel has a volume indpendant ("post gain" on the lead channel) and offers sound textures diffrent switchable by a small lever: "Vintage" and "Modern" channel for clean and "Vintage", " Modern "and" High Gain "channel for the lead.
It has a connection and complete enough rglages overall, allowing a wide range (it lacks a mixer output with adjustable volume for recording studio).
The optional footswitch allows channel change (you have to sue the receiver for the Lead channel footswitch that works) only.

UTILIZATION

Trs simple approach, there is no need to be guided to a manual is all alone, there are enough rapidemment DSIR sound even if the pots should be turned frankly a Difference for low volume (so I advise to put about 3 by volume for the grate well rglages).

SOUNDS

It is here that the reputable played an amp, I use it for the past three years in work and personal RPET and I think to keep still for a while, so this amp m well rite of the reputable TransTube!
I play mainly on the lead channel (large rock, mo, mtal of all kinds) with a Fernandes Ravelle (passive pickups high output all of the same) and the disto trs is beautiful, that be low as high volume. The amp is the rgl fawn follows: disto type "Modern" with the win 8-9, 6-7 bass, mdiums of 4 and 5 AIGS, low volume is close to the Rectifiers very serious and compression (it is not exactly of the Mesa-Boogie, we are not in the same price range either) and high-volume, serious s'attnuent a bit and we get a good distortion trs Hughes and Kettner like Vortex or Randall RH100. Textures "Vintage" and "High Gain" are close, respectively, the Led Zep 'and The Darkness, I almost never use them except to train but I think they can convince high volume.
For the clean channel, nothing REALLY transcendent texture "Vintage" is hotter than the "Modern" but I use plutt dernire I like this well (I add a delay and the opportunity a chorus to swell a little).
I always put a bit of rverbe (1-2) to magnify the sound, clean as Lead and poses no problem, no buzz or some musical strains but I can not really say objectively it is music or not, may be a little cold.
The simulation "Transtube" is still growing 9 because it really brings a gain of heat as in Clean Lead.

For résumé, this amp sounds good dlivre whether as Lead Clean and I am happy trs. The only problem is the loss of serious distortion in high volume but it's all common amplifiers and it is not pathological REALLY!
The HP rpond trs much any type of stress, particularly to large heavy palm mute, cash it perfectly, nothing wrong.

OVERALL OPINION

A friend bought 3 years ago, I am always happy trs and I use it every week because it is powerful enough to rpter, small enough to fit in my small trunk trs and offers good sound for trs not look like a fool with friends!
Small default: the grip screws and jacks that take a bit of play (a screwed back easily but will have to do, takes a 10 minutes) and especially, the footswitch buy more, these bxs small practices are so vicious that it is not to offer it with the amp (it's a sales policy but it is certainly harmful!).
It has an amp with a good value trs qualitprix and I Rasht eyes closed if I am proposed for work and personal RPTES. I put my 8 / 10 because of the footswitch option, otherwise, no complaints of reliability.

It's all transistor, 65 W displayed, effects loop (send return), 2 inputs (highgain / low gain) output line out / external speaker on the back and the indispensable Footswitch
2 channels
Eq on clean, bass mid treble, plus button to add Bright flapping in the clean
Eq of distortion, bass mid treble, adjusting Prégain / Postgain separate Gain control over for even more gain (yeah bah c logic but I said), and Trash to dig the middle.
Reverb (reverb unconvincing, but hey, she deserves to be there)

UTILIZATION

Not very complicated to use, given the brevity of the manual (a page and a half I think!) That is better.
The clean is pretty good.
The distortion is quite flexible with the pre gain, trash button is quite useful since the middle are very much without him (y'en who love, but not me).

SOUNDS

Instead turned to the big sound, he appreciates the humbuckers.
Disto rather cold, impersonal, it arranges with an equalizer / gain for a lot of styles and metal guitar solos is cool
Clean bright and clear

OVERALL OPINION

I have 6 years, I find it powerful, but its distos are too cold and tiresome ...
Purchased approximately 2800F, I find too expensive.

May be more detailed prcdement

65 watt amplifier transistors

2 clean (modern, vintage)
Three different saturations (modern, high gain, vintage)
simulation lamps
EQ separated

Reverb
LINE OUT

no pedalboard

For the price, ca not look bad at all at this level

UTILIZATION

The setup is rather simple ... The search for her is quite comfortable

The manual ... I did not come so it's easy

A little heavy ... but I think it's normal since the power!
It looks solid

SOUNDS

I play with a washburn double two Seymour Duncan, and a multi purpose Korg AX 1500 G

Clean channel: The definition of sound is rather good

The modern is softer than the vintage (which is a little chattering)

Personally, clean vintage with a little reverb in simple micro run I think it's great for blues, pop ...
in pickup, more funky ... It sounds pretty
It very well ENCISS effects

Distortion channel:

Modern: disto orinte hard rock / metal ... a really rough from 5/10...bien to let off steam from time to time

High Gain: disto has the marshall, and less well, I do not like personal

Vintage: Overdrive / distortion slight ... My favorite
Usually the biggest problem is the coldness of his, and his lack of personality ... nothing to do with lights (this is normal for a transistor amp this price)

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a year and a few

I like: the Polyval, power, soliditbr /> I like least: the lack of personality and warmth

By the time I bought it was what I was looking for
Good quality for money, especially used

With experience, I would opt for a direct all-tube ... but I repeat that when I made this choice was the right

Mouflapil's review (This content has been automatically translated from English)

Any transistor amp sound emulation lamp, and finally the "T. Dynamic". A 12 hp. "
65 watts and 65 watts of Peavey is not 64! (This is not the 65 watt Stagg)
Two inputs, high and low gain, a headphone output, output for the effects on the back, so independent of the equalizer, output footswitch (optional footswitch said)
Two clear channel (the other three said opinion, I have two myself lol) and three-channel distortion, a Modern and Vintage more each time for a high gain distortion. A volume independent three-band equalizer + a (treble, mid and bass) for each channel, finally, one for the Clean and one for distortion. A knob also for T. Dynamic, which is god knows what ... I am not a nozzle in English but I understand it to the website, and true, the knob I use it, given that ear I see no difference ... Oh I forgot the reverb 'a buzz ...

UTILIZATION

Config 'ultra simple, no need for manual, if you know a little bit the operation of an amplifier, it connects, it goes into distortion, turn the knob to "pre gain" (= distortion), it rises the equalizers poru shape the sound you want, you put in the "post gain", you break his windows, and the knob does not exceed 1 at home, in group 3 max ... There's frankly dl'a power ...
To get a good sound, it's simple, JUSE must grind slowly the knobs, not rocket science ...

SOUNDS

[Edit of 06/05/07] I repeat all over again because when I reread it I find myself more in this notice.

I play now on a Lag Roxanne RM200 (EMG passive rise and split).

Sound clear: Bof bof bof, nothing transcendent, it's pretty cold as the transistor is not ugly but good. The split gives one of my microphones made prettier than double, if not, equalization is correct, but the sound is rather, well, flat. Never lens anyway. Vintage sound more high-mid and treble, the modern sound more bass, but the difference between the two is mainly on ... adjusting the equalizer.
Sounds distos: What you should know is that as amply transistor to entry-level, it sounds like this: cold and great personality.

Therefore has three modes:
- The first aims to be a crunch Gentillet to play blues or rock (at the rate of gain). Nice, the distortion is fairly defined if we do not exceed half of the race of knob. Quite usable anyway.

- The second is a mode emulating sounds very "metal" on-SOAD Rammstein and others. This is the one I use most to play alone in my room. The distortion, already relatively synthetic, gruel becomes a real past 6 / 10 to gain. The EQ is fairly accurate, with various options (for a more vintage Pantera and Metallica to the references cited above). Warning: it speaks well of transistors moldy, so we do not get the sound of Metallica is an attempt to get closer. A large volume (repeats drummer) is quite usable, but the grain lacks depth, chest, it is rather "flat", even if the sound for the price of good quality.

- The third mode is, I think, more closer to a Marshall's. However, it is less successful: just cold from the guitar through a mist that thickens as you turn the knob to gain ... It's ugly to vomit.

OVERALL OPINION

[Edit] I use it for a year and a half.

What I like most is the versatility at low cost. For the transistor that is correct and Peavey tried not to limit the amp distortion to one and only one clear sound.

However, it's still pretty average, all is not workable and high volume we feel weak transistors: no safe, no heat, no dynamics. The value is good, especially at the price at which it must be now.

With experience, I would go for the series of Vox Valvetronix, much better in comparison (I've been tested).
