This bass amp is a solid state 1x15 combo. Mine was used and came with an EV SRO instead of the Sheffield. It has high and low inputs. It has a preamp out, power amp in. Features a graphic eq and a really weird chorus, which sadly isn't footswitchable. I think its around 100-150watts. Not really sure to be completely honest. It's pretty loud though. Keeps up with a drummer okay. It's pretty heavy, but not too bad. Definitely built like a tank.
In all honesty, it's a pretty decent sounding amp. I can get a pretty fat R&B tone out of the one I have and it's pretty easy to dial in with the graphic EQ. Can't really complain, it's a pretty self explainable set up.
I've played a couple basses through the Peavey. Some with active and some with passive pickups. It responds well to most basses. I haven't had an issues with getting a reasonable sound. The chorus is very, very strange. It kind of sounds like lazer guns. Not very chorus-y to my ear to be completely honest. Kind of neat though. I found it was really cool for ambient stuff. It can be very ominous sounding. It is loud enough to keep up with a drummer okay and still sound okay. I use a lot of pedals through it and it seems to take them nicely. Mainly a Verbzilla, Big Muff Pi and a Keeley Modded Rat. It sounds really good for a lot of styles but I like it for R&B and Doom. I know that is a weird combination but it really does that stuff well. Not a bad sounding amp for the price.
Overall for the $100 I spent on this thing and the use it has gotten... It has wonderful value. I haven't played a whole lot of lower wattage bass amps I have liked, but this one honestly does a pretty good job. Holds up with a drummer okay and sounds pretty good. Takes pedals really well. I'd buy one again for the price I paid. Like most peavey things, it does the job and it's built like a tank.

Amp, though transistors, puts out 150Watts RMS, between low and high gain, an effects loop and a loop crossover to place supplementary amplifiers. In addition to everything, of course a pre-gain, two knobs of "shelving" are serious, acute one, with a brightness, a "punch", as they say, gives an incredible sound for rock or metal, a seven-band graphic equalizer (EQ), switchable, without making too much noise, and finally, the chorus, with a knobs of rate and depth. If even a knob to select the frequency on which to apply the crossover (I have not really understood what it was for..). I put a 9 because I would have AIM CONTROL gain for a little overdrive. But hey, we can not have everything!
Extremely simple configuration, contour switches, punch and brilliance trs notes are convincing, I did not even need to use the graphic equalizer with this type of amp, the sound comes alone, the tones round to make crazy slap-bass sounds, to the Jaco Pastorius with the chorus that "holds the road well".
Bought used, I do not see what could serve as a manual (may be the crossover) as given that ^ has the rear of the amp is an amme Shma the amplification process. Not repeat the above.
Personally, I am too eclectic in my musical styles of play! So I metal group, a rock band, and I love playing the funk of jazz in small groups, or bass-beats, for all the amp is ideal, pushing gain, his desire to become fat, or with the punch and the serious substance of all the furniture my room shaking.
I play it with a precision of 70 Us, without effect, although I intend to add the marvel of Hartke.
To play rock, I recommend the punch button, which I won dcidemment, the switch will make the brightness of the funky slap, when the graphic equalizer, as it allows it to produce n ' matter what kind of sound.
Persanally, I like to push the pr gain saturation, to give her my fat (you'll understand that I am a rocker DEFINITIONS), with the severe three-quarters, treble MOITI switched on and punch one small problem with this config: my drummer asked me to lower it, "I have the lungs and heart trembling!" I put 9 / 10 as seen my little exprience, I think we must do better.
I depuismaintenant a short week, I came across this opportunity by chance, to 400, APRS test have in store, then with my bass, I jumped at the opportunity, afraid it's Discoveries by other bassists.
This combo has a EHJV incredible, I never jou with earplugs before, now, the question does not arise! I tried the 100 and the rumble Hartke A100, but I confess that the power of sin and it quickly made me forget the favorite I had on the A100.
The price quality ratio that I use is extraordinary. Produce a 100-watt amp with Fender for less than 400 silent a feat, but buy a combo of this quality for 390! It is of the fourth! I think with the exprience, I would do this choice, even if, with more in, I'd tap can be in the more upscale, I think we nammoins vafaire a little bit way together.

The setup is simple enough even if I had a hard time finding a good reglage.Je got it without a manual ...
It fits all stile of music (I play jazz and rock and occasionally occur in the same funky)
I use a peavey bass millestonne 3
I do not see the interest of the mode chorus.
I uttilise already been a year. I love its versatility but I do not like its heavy weight.
before I had a peavey max 110 and an Ibanez SW60.
I rapporteurs for money is more than more than good.
In a previous life I buy it.
thank you robinson
