The tone of this mp doesn't sound all that great, but for $400 how can you complain that much. It sounds good enough for this price for sure. The texture control is a great feature to get the amp tightened up or loosen the amp a bit based upon your feel for the amp.

This amp sounds a little like a Marshall JCM800 in its character of voicing but is has its own thing going. I like this amp like all the Peaveys with a Gibson Les Pauls or another humbucker style pickup guitar. I think the humbucker sounds the best through Peavey's type of distortion. It has a great resonance feature that controls the bottom end of the amp a bit which is a nice addition.

I can't complain too much or at all about this amp because for the money the tone is better than some $2000 amps I have heard. I would invest in a better cabinet because I have never cared for the Peavey speakers or cabs.


At new these amps come in at around $400, which in my opinion is an absolute steal of a price. You can get a whole lot for that kind of money these days and many guitar pedals cost most that this. Invest in a nice Mesa Boogie 4x12 cab or a decent Marshall cab with Greenback speakers.

If you are looking for the best $400 you'll ever spend then this is your day. You will be happy with the tone and coming at 120 watts you will shake down the walls with this amp.
