MGR/Andrew Gillis's review"Peavey Blazer 158"

Peavey Blazer 158
This is the first amp i ever got,i got a great deal on it with my first guitar,i got the guitar (slammer by hammer) with the blazer 158 for just $200.

It has great sound for an amp of its size,its compact and is great size to keep in your room for practicing with.And also has a cd input which is also great for practicing.

The only thing i dont like about it is it doesnt have a cup holder

small beastly little thing,nice rubber handle

all in all,its a great amp for anyone and its affordable

MGR/Brandon Webber's review"Peavey Blazer 258"

Peavey Blazer 158
This was my first ever amp, I wanted the reverb so I got the blazer not the rage. I played it with my Ibanez. I bought it with my guitar for $650.00, The amp itself was about $125.00.

This amp has some of the best tone for such an inexpensive price, defently worth it, The distortion isn't the best very muddy, but that's ok it's a practice amp only.

well it's only 15 watts, and at very very high volumes can get a bit muddy and bad.

You can't beat the quality i have dropped it used it as a stool, brought it through some extreme temperatures she still worked.

Hey, if your looking for a quality dependable cheap practice amp, Buy this right now.

Peavey Blazer 158
I aquired this unit for my first electric guitar. I wanted a small amp so i could use it in my dorm room without taking up too much space, but one that still sounds good. The cost was $119.99

The sound on this unit is great. It is very compact and easy to travel with. It also has a reverb control which some 15w amps do not have.

There is nothing i dont like about this amp! For it's size and price you can't beat it!

It has very solid construction, a sturdy handle, plastic protection on the corners and a tough mesh grill.

This is the amp you want if you need a small, compact amp with great sound for the beginner or for practice for any level of guitar playing.

yoTrakkz's review"easy to use"

Peavey Blazer 158
The Peavey Blazer 158 is a cheaper beginner's version of the ever popular Champ amps. This one is actually under the Squire name, which is of course owned by Fender. The big difference between this amp and the real Peavey Blazer is that this one isn't a tube amp but is solid state. It's still 15 watts of power and has a single speaker, which I think is 8" but I'm not 100% sure on this. It's got a single 1/4" input on the front and also a 1/4" headphone output.


UTILIZATION

The make up of the Peavey Blazer 158 is quite simple to understand and follow. If you've ever used an amplifier before, you'll probably have this one under control. The parameters included on the front panel include knobs for gain one and gain two, volume, and then treble, middle, and bass EQ control. That should be self explanatory for all users, so I don't think a manual is a necessity.


SOUNDS

The sound of the Peavey Blazer 158 is a bit uninspiring, as I honestly would not record with this on the level that I'm at right now. It comes off a bit tinny and isn't very full sounding because of the small single speaker and the fact that it's not a tube amp. This is certainly not a replacement for the true Fender Champ, but will be fine for a beginner looking for a small amp to practice with at home.


OVERALL OPINION

While okay for practicing and for beginners, the Peavey Blazer 158 isn't a serious guitar amplifier. If you were to hoping to save a few dollars with this instead of a silver face Fender Champ, I would highly recommend against it. This amp simply isn't in the same ballpark. It's okay for the price and for practicing, but beyond this I wouldn't use it. Great buy!
