Peavey announced it has expanded its Peavey Custom Shop to include custom-built amplifiers based on three all-new, hand-wired models, the Studio Special, Sensation and Masterpiece.


The Peavey Custom Shop builds amplifiers to spec based on point-to-point, hand-wired models that range from a single watt to a 50-watt in combo or head configurations. Cosmetics and components can be customized from pre-selected options or specified on a per-project basis.

The Peavey Masterpiece is a 50-watt, two-channel, all tube amplifier designed to provide players with a variety of tones in head or combo configurations. The Clean channel layout features volume, treble, middle and bass controls with a bright switch, while the Overdrive channel uses the Clean channel and adds two stages of gain to achieve a very smooth, musical overdrive that ranges from slightly overdriven to thick overdrive tones. Gain trim, gain and gain level controls add more even tone shaping.

The Sensation is a 20-watt amplifier available as a head or combo and based on three 12AX7 preamp tubes and two EL84 cathode-biased output tubes. Standard front-panel features include pre gain, treble, middle, bass and post (master volume) controls, with optional reverb. The rear panel consists of two speaker outputs with an impedance selector. Effects send and return jacks are included on models equipped with the effects loop option.

Designed for recording studios and small rooms, the 1.5-watt Peavey Studio Special is designed to allow players to achieve “cranked” amp tones at a manageable volume level. The straightforward, single-channel layout includes volume, treble, middle and bass controls and a Fat switch to boost the midrange, with two 12AX7 preamp tubes and one 12AU7 tube configured in class AB for the power section.
