I’ve found that a lot of amp companies have great higher end amps, but bad lower end amps. Peavey is not one of those companies. I’ve been exceptionally pleased with their lower end gear as well as their higher end.
I was first introduced to Peavey at one of the gigs I play at where back line is provided. The cab I played through was the Headliner 410. This amp, as well as most Peaveys, packs a punch. For the venue, I would pump my amp no more than halfway up and you could hear the bass all over the stage. The best part is that it is cheap! This amazing cab is only $300 new.
All Peaveys I’ve played through are inexpensive and totally reliable. For the great price, you can’t go wrong! The one thing I will say about Peavey amps is that (for me) the sound can be a little muddy. I usually correct this by turning up my high mids and messing with the tone knob on my bass. Other than that, great amp!
What do you think about Peavey? Let me know!
