Everything has already been said, look on the peavey site

except for a gain knob on the clean channel and a switch for the reverb, there is nothing missing in my opinion.


Archi simple, Eq responds quite well.

For sound, should spend some time on the set.


My punk rock hardcore trend, it does squarely against the sound sends too at low frequencies for my taste (especially palm mute).

The clean is very nice and straight, I just wish that there was no gain knob on that channel to do saturate slightly, I'm not too fond of his own.

For channel saturated, it is far from a Marshall JCM, a 5150 or Orange, but at this price, it really sends the block. Used alone palm mute, it sends too much bass, but the bass side, this problem is no longer heard.

I found him a pretty good dynamic with ValveKing 4x12 cabinet (although I admit it does not measure up to her big sisters).

I am also served in my punk / rock less bad, it took I drop the gain to less than half for it to pass.

It is quite suitable for rehearsals and stage, even though I am more a fan of Marshall JCM900, but I love the sound of the guitar peavey.


Used for about 6 months, we are all very happy in the group (and in our environment), it goes perfectly with a sound of my bass (I made ampeg 3PRO saturate).

Even if I could blame him for the lack of gain knob on the clean and sound a bit cold (especially compared to Orange), this is a killer amp for a very low price (about 450 € the head + 4x12 cabinet) It will delight those who want to pay their first stack.
