Peavey Headliner Head
The Peavey Headliner is a new rack-mountable bass amplifier head with matching enclosures in the Peavey Tour Series in a 10 lb. package.
The Peavey Headliner is a 600-watt max bass amplifier head that features a seven-band graphic EQ spaced at optimized frequencies, with each slider providing 15 dB of cut and boost, designed to provide tone shaping at precise frequency bands. Players can use the graphic EQ in conjunction with the low and high shelving-type tone controls, or bypass the graphic EQ entirely.
A built-in optical Compressor with level control and bypass allows players to add the right amount of compression to the mix, while the Crunch feature adds a vintage tube effect that distorts only the high frequencies, designed to preserve the fat low end. The amp also features Bright and Contour switches, effects loop, master volume and headphone out. The Compressor and Crunch features are footswitch selectable.
The Headliner features a built-in XLR direct interface that routes the signal to a house sound system or recording device, and an active/passive pickup switch that compensates for hot inputs. Peavey’s DDT speaker protection circuitry is designed to sense the onset of clipping and respond with slight compression that allows the amp to retain the tone, headroom and dynamics (bypass included).

- Eden Electronics WTX-500 Amplifier Head and EX110 Speaker Cabinet Review When I was starting out as a bass player I didn't dream about the ideal amp. Of course, I fantasized about bass guitars but I can't remember being excited by a great combo or a bulky stack. For me, amplifiers were only useful tools: you had to plug into one to get a sound. And the most important thing was to have enough output volume, regardless of the sound quality. But the years and the road have taught me that in order to increase my skills as a musician I had to improve the most essential sense to make music: my hearing.
