Peavey MAX 158Published on 11/01/11 at 10:55
Features
Great tone!
TransTube emulation circuitry
Modern/vintage voicing switch
3-band EQ
15W power
8" speaker
Tape/CD in
Headphone out
Small, compact, lightweight cabinet.

UTILIZATION

The Max 158 Bass amp is supremely easy to use. It's not rocket surgery here, folks! Plug in, turn some knobs, and play for hours. It's a great little practice amp that makes getting a good tone a very simple process. The addition of a CD or MP3 input and headphone jack are welcome additions that I feel should be standard on all practice amps nowadays. It doesn't get earth-shakingly loud, but its just 15 watts.

UTILIZATION

The Max 158 Bass amp is supremely easy to use. It's not rocket surgery here, folks! Plug in, turn some knobs, and play for hours. It's a great little practice amp that makes getting a good tone a very simple process. The addition of a CD or MP3 input and headphone jack are welcome additions that I feel should be standard on all practice amps nowadays. It doesn't get earth-shakingly loud, but its just 15 watts.

SOUNDS

This amp is very easy to get a good sound from. The EQ is super responsive, and the addition of a Vintage/Modern voicing switch helps a ton! I can make the amp growl a bit like an old Motown record, or I can get crystal clarity. This is something I griped about a bit on another amp - the Fender Rumble 15 - that amp doesn't have a voicing or drive circuit, and it costs about $70 US more than the Peavey, with similar features. I think the sounds that can be gotten from the Peavey Max 158 Bass amp are highly worth it.

OVERALL OPINION

For under a Ben Franklin, this amp works wonders. It is very small, lightweight, durable, and gets loud enough to be heard. It won't compete with a drum set, but it is not designed to do that. For sitting in a bedroom, tour bus, backstage, or small practice studio, this amp certainly gets the job done, and is fun enough to include a bit of options as far as what the bass tone sounds like. That voicing switch is pretty cool, and makes this amp a winner. I highly recommend this amp.

So I model 20 watts.

UTILIZATION

Very easy. 3 buttons and a switch vintage / modern.
The good sound is easy to obtain. The use of an external source is top notch. You can connect an iPod and the headphones work which is a huge +

SOUNDS

I use a G & L Tribute 2500. I'm mainly focused on music "GROOVE". I quickly found a good sound.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it recently so I did not perhaps all the features. But it is really easy to get great sound. For the price it costs is unbeatable. I highly recommend for those who want a good tool for cheap labor.
I would do this choice without hesitation …

Small amp (15 watt bowl 8 ") Cheap, small (36 cm x 30 cm) x 23 cm), lightweight (8 kg), and convenient to play at home without breaking the ears of his neighbors.
It "sounds" pretty good with my bass electro-acoustic (Cort), with its two audio options (Modern / Vintage) and its system of equalization (EQ controls low, mid, treble).
The connection is as follows: CD / input jacks and headphone jack

- A PBass Squier and a Digitech multi effect

What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
- The fashion vintage tries to approach a simulation of tube amps ... It is, shall we say ... missed and unnecessary.

- For a 15 W, it is rather muscular, working out its equalizer, he throws!


OVERALL OPINION

For how long have you been using it?
- 1 year

Did you try many other models before getting this one?
- In the low-end, 2 or 3 (Stagg, Warwick). Compared to stagg, power equivalent face, this is a Peavey Stagg 15 W 30 W!
Compared to Warwick same power output it manages less bass.
- It's good low-end:)!

What is your opinion about the value for the price?
- Excellent (110 to € Pigalle)

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
- For playing in is in rehearsals with a small guitar or acoustic sessions, is ideal ... :)
