    Nice but no reverb

    Peavey Rage 258Published on 12/17/12 at 17:07
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Amp transistor classical
    HP 8 '
    25 watts

    UTILIZATION

    Basic Setup
    There is a sound quickly, there is not much knob.
    One branch, we light one plays.
    Two types of sounds if I remember correctly, a mode distortion vintage and modern.

    SOUNDS

    Then we come to the heart ..
    This is an amp that I was well serviced and costs only 90euros new.
    So for the price I'm not going to cut it but give my opinion.
    HP low-end slam very, very medium, no reverb.
    The volume knob is not at all progressive, appart I never have more than 2, one has the impression that it is actually much higher.
    A one millimeter, it is either inaudible sound is too loud, annoying.
    Its very dr…

    Its very dry.
    The sound is very clear quelcuonques, I was surprised not against saturation for such a small amp.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Ultra cool because it is very light or moving it you want without taking space.
    Ideal for evening or jam for a little beef in the colleague.
    A dry without reverb, medium with very low which quickly slaps in the HP.
    Saturation very nice for such a small amp "cheap"
    It costs 100euros not even he did nothing away from the exceptional, but for the price it was 25watts and saturation 'nice little one that is good microphones.
    That said it is not fully usable watts for the HP too quickly spits and drools less than half the volume.

    I would do that choice, in place of j would buy time to leave a 50 euro more for a roland cube 20 watts which sends the paté campaign and has some good effects of integrated and quality.

    Horrible!!

    Peavey Rage 258Published on 04/26/11 at 11:51
    This thing has the transtube technology which sounds really good in the Vypyr series but just sounds terrible in this amp. This amp reminds me of everything I hate about solid state amps. It sounds like a trash can banging around and the distortion it creates from that noise. Oh and I forgot about how noisy this thing is...my gosh does this thing make and incredible amount of noise when in the dirty channel. It is very annoying to have that amount of circular noise in an amp.


    Peavey Rage 258 Features:

    * 25 watts (rms) into 8 ohms
    * 8" Blue Marvel speaker
    * TransTube tube emulation circuitry
    * Clean and Lead channels

    SOUNDS

    This is just terrible! It reminds me of the crappy Boss metal pedals that sound thin and nothing like tube distortion. This amp is better fit for a trash can than actually being played. I am a fan of Peavey amps and so this review isn't some slight against the company...this is just a terrible amp.

    I am scratching my head why they have even released this amp. The Vypyr series which is the exact same price sounds enormously better than this amp. It is like two different companies made these amps and not just Peavey.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This amp is a complete and utter waste of money. If you want a usable solid amp in the exact same price range then do the Peavey Vypyr. This amp is just flat out garbage. It can say it any clearer than that. I do not recommend this amp to anyone. I do recommend to Peavey to stop selling this hunk of trash!

    Good Q / P = 7 / 10

    UTILIZATION

    The setup is simple?
    "Very simple, few settings, perfect for a beginner.

    The manual is clear and sufficient?
    "I do not remember a manual ....

    Do you get a good sound easy?
    -For a beginner who wants to scratch quietly without making too much noise, it is quite enough;

    SOUNDS

    Will it fit your style of music?
    Yes and no, for all Clean tones and with a slight overdrive of the amp, it suffit.Pour other styles such as Rock and Metal HardRock, a distortion pedal (or a multi-effects, when eh ... you're a beginner) is to be expected because of its lead channel is too rough beyond the stroke of half the volume pot (and again).
    However, given the small size of HP (8 "), you will not get a distortion in her famous.

    What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)?
    "Everything is a matter of settings and how you jouez.J 've been able to obtain satisfactory sound (considering the price of the amp.)

    "With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
    Ibanez RG370DX (before selling) and a copy of Start (Tanglewood Nevada)

    -What are the sounds you prefer, you hate?
    Again, these are the sounds that have them clean my favor.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For how long have you been using it?
    -I used when I had my Ibanez before resell.

    For how long have you been using it? What thing do you like most/least about it? Did you try many other models before getting this one?
    Non-

    What thing do you like most/least about it?
    -Pros: Good sound, cheap and simple adjustments
    -Cons: HP is too small, not top Lead channel

    What is your opinion about the value for the price?
    Bon = 7 / 10

    Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
    -With experience, no, I do not do it again this election, but an amp that I recommend for beginners.
