Peavey TubeFex

Pramp 2 12AX7 tubes, Midi, 7 simultaneous effects, 30 effects, RAM card for more presets, tuner, 1U, effect loop, XLR Direct in / output, output 2 4 or 8 mono or so 8 April 16 in stereo.


Easily obtained good sound, good sound factory manual clear enough, gripe about the sound banks between ABC and UFC tree is moderately clear, but after a few hours it includes tampering.


It should quite my style of music! Big sound ... I play Death, mid agreement, with a micro EMG 81 85 LAG, a powerful amp and a Peavy 5050 Marshall 1960AV speaker. Sounds! It may sound impresionante out! Many low, the equalization react like clockwork, I think we can really find his sound.


Well I have several months I DCID uant my preamp, hard choice especially since some products are hard to try as best-selling! I wanted a 2 in 1 qs a budget so I hesitated with the OnCurrent of Tubefex, the Rocktron Voodu valve, cooler with a single lamp and a rocktron a very typical best noise gate ... short of serious even when! It's been four days that I have and for now I regret nothing! especially for the price (500 euros OCCAZ), the effects are correct, saturated fat, versatile in the crunch, noise gate correct. Not short enough known that little preamp! it is the dtour! I would do this choice! but hey wait a bit before saying that any estbien qd mm

Peavey TubeFex
-It is a tube preamp (12AX7 * 2)
-Connectivity is really complete ... I can not list everything. but from an effects loop, several of which emerged out of line ... xlr jack ... everything must
I will not repeat the above but is rather a simple configuration, but not for fans of this kind of combination preamp + multi fx
and the effects are transcribed ... lamps are super great job ... c really beautiful ..


I think the cfg is pretty simple (compared to other multi fx example)
-From the start was not too bad presets, easily exploitable but do not stop there ... must spend time to find his sound and you realize that your count a sacred beast in front of you .... namely that el'on can also dl new user presets via the pc ...
I do not really look at the manual ....


Absolutely, in fact I do not know who could say that the tube fex does not suit him?! I play a lot of metal intrumental ... in the style of Patrick RONDAT =) and the least we can say is that it's hard !!!:!
I played with an ESP Kirk Hammett 3 (the Scully)
Quazi we can have it all!! I am of the distal pluto sharp crunch for solo as well but you can find sounds very heavy trash or if it linger .....


I've had very little time ... I love it =)
It is not a feature I like is all the characteristic of this preamp that I love .....
- I do not know the original price in my opinion in thousand €?! Finally, what the .. already not bad ...... I have found a € 350 and I can say that value for money is quite exeptional ... for the price of multi fx pourrave too .. lamp has a great preamp ....... what more .....=)
-Recess ... I could not miss this opportunity ......

Peavey TubeFex
Pr-amp lamps (2 12AXT) and multi-purpose (30).
128 factory programs and 128 user
LED status display quite readable
Infinite knobs

-Input (1 front, derrire)
Midi In / Out
-Effect Send and Out (stereo)
Direct-Output (XLR)
-Unbalanced Outputs (to power amp)

Anyway ... super full


Super simple program:
EDIT button to edit the patches
ADD / DEL button to add or remove the effects
Arrows up down left right and custom settings to navigate and change their value
STORE button to save changes
TUBE button to select the "channel"; clean, crunch, lead, ultra
For each channel: pre and post gain, bass mid and treble
There's lots of other subtle but the key is l!

The manual is on the site of tlchargeable PEAVEY. It is super clear and Retailer all the effects and possibilities of the BTE.

This gives the sound you want easily. Personally, the standards are so saturated and often beautiful, I just qualizer the base without trying to change the sound with other effects.


You can really get all the sounds you want. It's quite impressive! I play on Japanese Jackson with EMG 85 and SA 81 and the pre amp I plug in a Classic 50/50 and a cabinet Peavey 4 * 12 JS. I am a bit of everything (pop, blues, jazz, and especially metal) and I find my happiness. the parametric qualizer are useful for wide spectrum of sonrits.

It's hard to dcrire sounds obtained because we can really achieve everything if we take a little time for rgler.

Gain level is a killer! we really more than enough! You can do the Black Death and no problem whatsoever in the modern or 'dirty'. The quality of saturation is amazing! For Blues and Rock is the top too.

The super multi effect is complete: dlais, rvebs, disto lamps or 'transistor overdrive, tremolo, compressor, chorus, pitch 2, noise gate, coil tap, exciting, speaker simulator, simulator dtereo, equalizer 4, 5 , 3 bands, a yammer rotari speaker!. The effects are good quality but for dlais rverbs and I use my prfre Intellifex.


The weak point is the amp simulator: the date when pre amp level audio quality is not great! If you want to use it plugged into a sound card, you can use an amp simulator software to compensate for that. Otherwise, I think a simulator type Palmer PDI 03 should be enough to transplant it to a mixing desk. In short, the pr o the amp is doing best is plugged into a power amp and a cabinet.

Strengths; cest everything else! It is really great comprehensive and flexible. It's pure bliss! I have not found a sound he could not get out!

OCCAZ bought for 450 euros six months ago, I am super happy and I do not believe me spare before long. Only a TriAxis could replace in my heart.
For the record, he arrived in the mail, the package on a cot compltement dfonc the silent mtal twisted 45 degrees can not rack! imagine the shock! Bin I branch and walked nickel! Peavey is really solid! (It happened to me the same thing with my Classic 50/50 and still has walked on top!)

Frankly, if you find one, try it because we should not spend ct!
Lamp and a pre amp MIDI abordadle correct prices and super versatile, has become rare!
I would recommend especially mtalleux (death, black, prog) and rockers.

I just rcuprer of RVision. has been a while since I had not used so I'm going to be more objective:
- The speaker simulator that I found no one is really good. I just spent the noon APRS crushing in every way and I have a fucking her on my Alesis MK2 active! What should like to spend time!
- Sound: in fact, it really is not empty for rgler sounds perfect. I mean you get good sounds easy but sounds gniaux will ask for patience, especially when you add effects, must go molo on the gain if we want to avoid the spray! Similarly, the effects rglage levels, should spend time for a ring. has also stems from the fact that the effects are of average quality as I explained above.
So should spend time, you might say it's the same for all but it's true that sometimes it is frustrating ... he he
I keep the note because it really gives a hell of a gadget, even 10 years APRS its release, it is used in all styles.

Peavey TubeFex
Amplification lamp, said all t

However I have the Version 2.0 (the dernire dated) and then there's no harm in evolution, notament possibits on whether to activate the effects of a same presets noon the processor that mixes the effects pramp change the volume (which n'tait not the case before it was hack o), and + + + BIG point: we can finally put the effects loop of effect also BEFORE pramp.


The config in version 2 is not super intuitve, but with little manual available on the net, no worries (in English)

To get a good sound, no worries, but if you want something good prcis we at the top, then the must bone up, test, and manages sounds trs-performance he never of, the possibilities are standards


We can all play, and the fact to the Advent pramp effects such as compression, the High filter, and many others, makes her more upright cleaner, I really sound distortion of egg, and the light are magical


Notice the public owner of the bte: the team you version2 is incomparable!
