MGR/Huw's review"Peavey 108"

Peavey Rage 108
Local Market - £40.00 (clean 2nd Hand)

It's light. Very light - I'm a bass player, I live on the first floor, my amps live on the 2nd floor, and as I get older I wish I'd taken up the flute!

For rehersals, jams and folk-dances this is the box to take; it'll cope (just) with by bass, and miked up (rather than DI - the speaker distorts nicely giving a good growl absent from my bigger boxes at low volumes). It travels by bus to drinking gigs and can cope with being deluged with beer (like any Peavey). At a trad Jazz do recently someone whacked a Mike through it and sang St James Infirmary - they left the lead channel on by accident, the result was this wild, Tom Waits overdriven voice, like an old 78.

Not a solo amp for anything with drums, but fine for everyday sketching, writing, busking (where there's mains), and lending to other musos (it's cheap).



It isn't very loud. The speaker projects a long way, so using it as an onstage monitor with DI to the desk is a poor move, as everyone else can hear if you're playing the wrong tune, but all you can hear is noise.

Solid, well made, small.

Tough, dependable, flexible, bigger than it really is, light, portable and good looking.
I like it.

Peavey Rage 108
Ebay.com $61.00



Light Small and loud. Great for punk or just regular clean sound. Lightweight and durable. Headphone jack keeps my parents from yelling at me.



No mic input, and limited by the 40 watts to play a show.



Good quality.


A great beginner amp with great sound. However its not for those who have a big amp and looking for a backup.

King Loudness's review"Portable and cheap"

Peavey Rage 108
The Peavey Rage 108 is an older model Peavey amp that was one of their first attempts at a cheap and portable amplifier. It has 2 channels, a shared EQ, and auxiliary and headphone inputs too. It puts out around 10 watts of power and is driven by a single small Peavey driver. There really isn't much to write home about with this amp, it just is what it is. Nothing really remarkable, just what is needed to get the job done.

UTILIZATION

The amp is not terribly hard to dial in. It certainly doesn't sound stellar by any means, but you can dial it in for some passable tones, though certainly not as good ad the later Peavey Rage amps like the 158. The tones are a bit flat and generic sounding... the transtube technology that was refined on the 158 was simply stellar and had a wonderful tubelike tone. This amp just seems to sound very small and compressed, making the tones a bit more lifeless to my ears.

SOUNDS

This amp doesn't sound all that great when pitted against more modern practice amps that either off a better tone or more features. This model has two channels, the clean sounding very stiff and boring... no sparkle or life there, and the drive channel which has hints of sounding decent but overall it's just got a certain buzziness and harsh quality that makes it unpleasant to play through. The EQ doesn't really do a whole lot of justice to changing the tone, and the small speaker really just makes the amp sound too boxy.

OVERALL OPINION

All in all I think there are better choices out there than this amp. It doesn't offer much in the features department and the tones are pretty mediocre at best. Peavey later released the Rage 158 which is far superior to this amp and can be had for probably close to the same price. I would stay away from this amp... there are better options out there.
