Peavey Solid State Professional Bass Amplifier.
Although the DeltaBass of 2000 offers only 160w. Anyone that laughs at this amp is probably
very inexperienced. Sure there are amps with more wattage, some are NOT continuous wattage as
is this amp, but few offer &quot;clean&quot; wattage as does this amp.
The DeltaBass has the most needed connections, front and back. A simple &quot;in&quot; for the ax
of your choice, with a parallel no juice &quot;outplug&quot; for your tuner. It also includes a sound
man's favorite, a three prong &quot;mic&quot; type male plug for the PA system input.
Some of the controls are VERY reliant upon the settings of an adjacent control knob. The
DeltaBass has a set of seven twist type knobs that cover equalization and volume. They dip
into the minus and plus ranges effectively.

UTILIZATION

When I saw the near perfect layout of the DeltaBass, I knew, quickly, that it would be in
my possession soon. Only experience could possibly know what experienced players want. I
think maybe there are some musicians in tow on the design aspects of the DeltaBass amp.
Within seconds I found the perfect tune collaboration settings for the particular song/sound I wanted. The one thing that impressed me the most was; the perfect pitch delivery
from in to out of the amp. No variance because of lame circuitry. I have used many other
amps in my years, never ever have I had such perfect delivery of the bass note. In other words; If you pluck a &quot;C&quot; note in 440, it comes out the rear of this amp in 440. I have had
variances with other amps. This amp has impressive clarity.
I didn't really need the owners manual with this amp. It is self explanitory!

SOUNDS

I play a variety of music styles. The DeltaBass is flexible enough to be a switch-style
amp. I have even heard of folks using it for voice. Though it only has a 3+2 effects band,
the range within these controls is more than adequate for a full parimeter of styles.
I use a Peavey 5 string fretless, a Gibson RD Artist, or an Alvarez flat-top Bass to find
the sound I need for a particular event. If I need sustain I use the Gibson's active electronics that are built in. If I need the lower &quot;B&quot; register, I use the Peavey 5 string, for the softer sounds, of course, I use the Alvarez flat top.
Only slight and quick adjustments are needed to achieve my desired output sound. More
lows and less treble are my most common desires for the Country/Blues sounds. While on a
pick-me-up song might need a twist of the high eq. This amp is quiet until called upon.

OVERALL OPINION

I have had the DeltaBass amp for about 2 years and it has been trouble free. I do wish it
had a face light of some sort for the darker stage areas, it is difficult to see the settings
in a poorly lit area. I did try other amps prior to the purchase of the DeltaBass amp and I'm
glad I held out till I found the design and sound I hoped for.
The DeltaBass is very under-rated. I think as time goes by this will change. If you can
find one, buy it, it'll be a great investment. It will be a classic desire before long.
