    can get muddy

    Peavey BackstagePublished on 11/08/11 at 22:41
    I have the Peavey Backstage amp for a very long time, I have had a 75watt Peaveyr since the old version and they are very heavy guitar amps, during my first two years learning how to play I used this and it is a massive bang for the buck. When I hear the sound that comes out of this amp I am blown away, I just sit and play and get memorized by the sound and before I know it 5 hours have passed.

    UTILIZATION


    It comes with tons of effects for any playing style, on a scale of 1-10 for how much distortion, this amp gets a solid 8, the distortion is mad at lower levels but when you start cranking this powerhouse amp up it gets really intense, sometimes so intense you can't even hear yo…

    UTILIZATION


    It comes with tons of effects for any playing style, on a scale of 1-10 for how much distortion, this amp gets a solid 8, the distortion is mad at lower levels but when you start cranking this powerhouse amp up it gets really intense, sometimes so intense you can't even hear your mids or treble anymore, that is a big downside to this amp, the sound starts to get muddy at high levels, I wouldn't use it for gigging for this reason, the other con to this is the sound can sound sort of digital like it isn't natural distortion, to bassy at times.

    SOUNDS


    I was never able to get the tone I have been craving for, mad house rocking distortion with clarity, the speaker just cuts out the mids and makes it sound to distorted. The good news is that this only happens at ridiculous sound levels, like gigging, if you are using this as a practice amp than it will suit you perfectly.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall, it is worth every penny , the verdict is still out on which electric guitar to buy. So if your guitar is good and you match it with this amp you are going to be shocked by the sound that comes out of it. You will love this amp, it has been out for a while now and a lot of stores online are selling them pretty cheap!

    Transistor, 10w, conventional connectors (headphone and cd).
    Settings: treble, bass, volume and overdrive

    UTILIZATION

    Config ultra simple.
    Sound: will be seen below.
    No need to book.

    SOUNDS

    It suited my style rather hard at the beginning a year ago: acdc, kiss, black sabbath ...
    But play the Status Quo or Rory Gallagher is not won.
    I play with a stagg l400.
    Overdrive not too yucky to start (though not top-bottom). The overdrive on 3 / 4 only if the sound becomes too punk: it is the ear speaker after a year of use and especially the desire to get other sounds, which is not evident with this amp.
    Good enough in the treble but I do not like the grave. I only…

    Good enough in the treble but I do not like the grave. I only play with the microphone acute my les paul copy (except for a few blues riffs with the bass).

    OVERALL OPINION

    One year of use.
    Despite its low price, I will not repeat the choice to have a broader spectrum of sound.
    Nevertheless, he (she) who starts and do not want to play as hard to sound typical Saxon acdc and kiss, he can do the trick but in fact quickly turn if you want to explore other sounds hard-heavy-metal -punk.
    It is not too bad but to be reserved for small budgets.
    I orient myself now to the Line6 spider2, marshall roland cube 15 or mgcdx. It's two times more but I think it's more sustainable over time and better sound quality and variety.

    UTILIZATION

    Config very simple but the sound is how Diraige: yucky!
    The clean is not great and the overdrive is very weak and lifeless.
    Whoever needs a manual to understand it well it really is not smart!

    SOUNDS

    It is not my style of tourism was when I had the opportunity I buy a new amp!

    OVERALL OPINION

    About a year and it is certain that I will not purchase it but it came in the pack in my first scratch is made up with time to change.

    10W transistor amp
    Line between cd/k7, headphone
    Rglages: clean, overdrive, high, low

    UTILIZATION

    Config simple, turn the knobs and rings.
    The sound is clean trs beautiful, I like the overdrive (I told him al a distortion is better).
    Y needs a manual?

    SOUNDS

    I play Death, of course without distortion pedals is impossible to obtain this type of sound.
    I play with a Rocktron Silverdragon (distortion), and a slap!

    I love her too much overdrive.

    It's been 4 months I have before I had a Bandit 112 that I had to sell because there are no new home.

    Not a bad little amp!

    Peavey BackstagePublished on 04/22/11 at 11:19
    Peavey has this thing called the transtube technology. They have a patent on the idea and have been marketing it now for a while. Essentially what it is, is they have this hybrid style analog circuit matched with a solid state circuit. There still is no tubes in the amp, but it gives the feel and sound more closer to the feel and sound of real tubes overdriving.


    Peavey Backstage Features:

    * 10 watts (rms)
    * 6.5 inch custom designed speaker
    * TransTube preamp with 2 switchable channels
    * Volume and Overdrive controls
    * 2-band EQ
    * Tape/CD input for practice
    * Headphone jack

    SOUNDS

    This amp is not one of the high gain sounds we are most familiar with when it comes to the sound of Peavey. This is a clean channel amp with a second switchable channel that gets mildly dirty. You aren't going to get any high gain tones from this amp.

    Another great feature to this amp in that you can plug you cd player or ipod into it and jam along to your favorite songs. This is a great feature that really adds to the dynamics of this amp.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a practice amp and at new these units come in at around $60. That is a steal of a price. They are portable and light. You can also plug in your headphones and jam quietly in your home or office.

    I would recommend this amp to anyone who is on a tight budget ad you would like a good little practice and that won't break the budget. It is a price that is hard to beat for such a valuable skill building guitar tool.

    - Three jack connectors: guitar input, player input (CD, MP3, etc.) and headphone output.

    - 2-band EQ (high, low).

    - Two additional lead and volume controls.

    - Two channels (clean and overdrive)

    - Output power: 10 watts

    UTILIZATION

    I don't think it could be easier...

    SOUNDS

    The clean channel sounds very good and the amp is loud considering it has only 10 watts!

    I don't like the amp's overdrive at all, the sound is very heavy.

    To get a metal sound (less heavy), I bought a distortion pedal and the sound got better.

    As a summary, it's a good amp to learn electric guitar unless you want a heavy metal sound.
