MGR/Phil Taylor's review"Peavey Transtube 258 EFX"

Peavey TransTube 258 EFX
I used to play some 30 years ago casually and was in a band for awhile. Nothing serious - I found my niche as an audio engineer and only dabbled with the guitar. I recently got my five year old son an acoustic "real 'tar" he was wanting for Christmas and it rekindled the old interest in playing once again - even though I haven't

I bought it in a pawn shop for $70 - bargained down from $120 - in EXCELLENT condition. It looks like brand new! I went the local pawn shop route since I didn't want to sink a wad on something that may be collecting dust in a month or two since my work keeps me very busy.

It's small, light and easy to carry. Has GREAT effects built in - great clean sound and nice distortion - super chorus, rotary speaker emulation and delay. I also picked up a Cherry red and white Fender Squire Strat in super condition and the two compliment each other very well.

Nothing really - except it doesn't say Hi-Watt or Marshall on it and it hasn't magically transformed me into David Gilmour :) But it can crank out great echo and chorus so I'm on my way...

Very well built and solid. No issues whatsoever. Corners are protected and although easy to carry has a well built feel to it.

I'd recommend it to anyone wanting an absolutely super sounding smaller amp that won't break your budget.

i bought my peavey transtube 258 efx for 100$ used at music-go-round.

the first thing that caught my attention was the great range of effects built in to the amp. the second was the price tag...
i had to plug it in so i took les paul i think and played for a while. it has a good clean sound. The best feature is the delay! the distortion is decent, but i usually dont use a whole lot of distortion with what i play anyway.

the distortion could be better...

it is a good midsize 50 watt amp. if you just want to mix effects with a clean sound, this is a good bet, but if you want a broad range of sound for distortion than i think u should look elsewhere.

im satisfied with it because i like the effects and the good clean sound.
so if u want...
dist=look at a different model

This amp was purchased at Zone Music for about $150. I needed a small practice
amp that I could fit in my room, so this was my choice.

This amp has a lot of features for a practice amp. It has two channels,
a clean and Lead. Also it features a three-band equalizer with a switch for
"Modern" or "vintage" tone. As well as nine built in effects including reverb,
tremolo, flanger, phaser, chorus, funk wah, octaver, rotary spkr and tap tempo
delay. And they all sound great. All that's a lot of bang for your buck with practice

There is not much I don't like about it. I only wish I had a concert amp with all
these features.

The construction is solid. All the input jacks, knobs, switches and buttons feel
tight and secure. As with most peavey gear the amp is blocky and covered in
vinyl which could tear easily is abused

I’ve always been a peavey fan and this amp just proves me right once again. "Solid
gear for a solid price"
