This amp comes from the tone of the 5150 amps that Peavey did years ago with Eddie Van Halen. This is basically the exact same amp but with a few minor tweak from over the years. This amp is a beast of an amp. You can get some serious tone and balls with this amp.

This amp is a very forgiving amp but still has the tightness to use low tunings for modern music. The 6l6's compliment the tone for this amp as well which gives it more of a low end thump than you would get from El34's.

Some of the bands that rock this amp are 3 Doors Down, Ted Nugent, Atreyu, Steve Morse, In Flames, Arch Enemy, Visqueen, God Forbid, HIMSA, Darkest Hour, Sworn Enemy, Unearth, and Spades and Blades.

SOUNDS

This amp needs to be played with a humbucker pickup guitar such as a Gibson Les Paul or a Gibson Explorer. It needs that rock guitar for the gain style this amp produces. You can play any guitar single coil or humbucker but I think it sounds the best with the proper high gunner pickup.

The resonance and presence controls really enable this amp to do what you want with the the bottom end of the tone. The two controls are the key to this amp in my opinion.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in at around $1200 which is a freaking steal of a price. You can get a lot for this kind of money but you sure can get a stellar sounding Peavey amp. I would recommend this amp to anyone needing to stay within a tight budget and needs a proper sounding metal or hard rock amp.
