I bought this one from a friend for 230. I just wanted a amp that would not drown under the noise of the drum set in my band.
It is just a great amp. You have millions of different settings and they all sound great. Everything from a warm tone in the CLEAN mode to the crunchy tones when you put the gain on. It also has two inputs for high and low gain wich is agreat thing too.
There is nothing not too like about it.
It is made really well. Well, it's a Peavey!
If you wanna get those killer tunes you always heard from others than GO AND BUY IT!
This amp set me back £220 from a guitar shop in Aberdeen, i needed a decent sized amp to gig with and couldn't afford a real valve amp, after testing 90% of the amps in the shop I was convinced that this was the next best thing
The tone is reasonably valve like and could pass as professional to the casual listener, the 65 Watt output is more than enough for what i'm doing at the moment, especially once hooked up to a decent PA system. The lead channel can sound like anything from Hendrix to Page to Slash to that guy from Slipknot, the vintage, modern and high gain settings each have their own distinct sound. The clean channel is great for choppy funk work and mellow fingerpicking stuff
When playing at home, unless you live 3 miles from the nearest house get used to your guitar volume being set at 2 and the post (or pre, depending on your preference) gain being set at 1 with the master volume around the same. It takes a while to warm up so for the first few minutes the gain will sound considerably weaker than you are used to
Big and bulky but not too heavy, the perfect size to carry round to your mates house for a jam, but still big enough to cut it in live gigs. Mine has taken a fair bit of abuse from glasses thrown by members of the audience, to my singer using it as a football and has never suffered any problems. Its tough and reliable and wont break down on you half way through a set.
An excellent buy, it gave me exactly what i needed for a price better than i thought possible. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise, this is better than a Marshall Valve State. Buy it, you wont regret it
I brought this amp from a mail order business called Pro Audio.
I bought the amp cause I am in a high school band and the school had one the same and I liked it.
It set me back $650 (Aust) so it was a bit on the pricy side. But it was worth it.
The thing I like the most is the distortion you can get out of the amp. It has a 3 position switch on the lead channel so you can get high gain, modern or vintage distortion.My band plays mostly punk and metal stuff, so it is well suited to those styles
There is not much I don't like about the amp, except that in an outdoor gig, you have to crank it to about 5 or 6 ( without micing it up)so it could do with being a bit louder. Apart from that, it is a wicked amp.
The construction of the amp is great, and it is really solid, and not too heavey, which is good
Hey, people reading this, if you are thinking about buying this amp, then you should. It is a great medium powered amp for small to medium sized gigs
I bought the studiopro 112 at a local dealer. I think I paid too much for it considering just a few months after I bought it I saw one at Mcneals for 100 dollars cheaper.
I like this amp because it is really quite diversified. I am able to play all the highs and lows that I need to for playing guitar in a small jazz and rock ensemble. As a lead guitarist I think this little amp is just a great buy. It is even pretty light at only an estimated 30 pounds. But best of all the clean channel is outstandingly clean and the lead channel is almost perfect.
I can't say I don't like it, but I think that the lead channel can be improved upon. It seems that when I have the reverb on it gets feedback quite a bit so it kind of limits the amount of sound effects I can use.
I think this is probably one of the best amps I have played and owned. It is extremely sturdy, yet very flexible in sound.
I wouldn't suggest paying more than 300 dollars for it, seeing how there are places that will sell this little beast for under that. So, shop around a bit before you actually purchase it. Make sure that when you test it in the store you use a guitar that is really similar to the one you plan on playing on it most. Each guitar has a unique sound so that could probably really decide if this amp best suits your needs.
