« Killer metal amp! »

Publié le 04/23/11 à 14:52
The more I start listening to Peavey amps the more I start to love them. Peavey has taken a strong position on the metal market. This amp is a heavy duty metal amp capable of giving you some sizzling tones. It is a two channel amp that acts like a three channel because the first channel, the clean channel, has a button to kick in overdrive and it really kicks it in. The you have the dirty channel that gets ultra high gain saturation. This channel goes to a super modded British voiced amp. Even though this amp has El34 Peavey added some more goods in the voicing category to give a more British feel and tone compared to the 6505 amps.

SOUNDS

This amp is a stellar piece of work! The tone from the amp might be on everyone's plate but it has sensational grind to the tone that is so flavorful to my ears. It makes me want to start a metal band just to play this amp to the aggression that it is capable of achieving.

There is only one way to play this amp, and that is with a Charvel guitar. You need that alder body with a simple maple neck and a nice Seymour Duncan JB and you'll be cooking. This combo in my opinion is hard to beat. Just a fun combination that really gets filthy and dirty.

OVERALL OPINION

Another great feature to this amp is the line out fr the preamp. You can hook this into some effects and out to a power amp for some wet dry rig configurations. Also you will be able to send it out direct for recording or direct house PA systems. A great feature that it part of the new generation of amplifiers.

At new these amps come in at around $1200 which is great price for a fantastic sounding and looking amp. At a 120watts this thing is putting out some steam! I highly recommend.
