Peavey Series Guitar Amp Review and History Updated on April 10, more Michael is a guitarist and bassist with over 35 years of experience as a musician. But it should also have a unique tone and texture, one you can immediately notice live or in a recording. The Peavey is such a monster. Of course, this is just my opinion, but I am not alone! With a legacy dating back over two decades, the Peavey has hacked out a reputation for thick, high-gain metal sounds.

The line started with a single, all-tube, watt head and matching cabinets, but has since grown to include models with a few different preamps, plus a monster 1x12 combo and a cool mini head. All sound ferocious, and except for the MH all carry more than enough power to handle any live, practice or recording situation. Peavey is just one of many great guitar amp manufacturers out there, and each has built its own unique image and reputation.

Marshall is well-known as being the best rock amp maker in the world. Fender amps are cherished by blues and country players. Randall has the market cornered for aggressive, solid-state sounds and Line 6 has carved its niche as the leader in modeling and digital effects. Each amp has its place. Like anything else you do in life when you play guitar, you want to choose the right tool for the job.

If your job is extreme metal, you need to take a hard look at the Peavey series. Choose your weapon. Back then, it was called the The was the product of a collaborative effort between Eddie Van Halen and Peavey.

The original came out in and featured two channels: Lead and Rhythm. The Lead channel, on the other hand, put out blistering high-gain sounds with no outside influence required.

Where metal players were accustomed to having to hit the front end of a tube amp with a distortion pedal or employ a power attenuator to push the preamp into metal-worthy overdrive, the stood on its own and produced wicked distortion at any volume level. The original setup was simple but effective: Each channel had its own pre and post-gain knobs and shared Low, Mid, High, Resonance, and Presence.

Despite its simple design, the potential of this beast was evident from the beginning, and players began to squeeze hellacious metal tones out of it almost immediately. Peavey , Plus and In , when Eddie Van Halen parted with Peavey to start his own company EVH , the brand name went with him but Peavey kept the rights to the amp design. They changed the name to , but it was still the same great metal machine, and by this time the legend had grown.

Metal players across the globe had grabbed onto the Peavey tone and the sound had become the backbone of extreme metal. This amp features an extra preamp tube, and separate EQ sections for each channel. This was a great move, and in my opinion, this is the ultimate metal amp. If you understand how Eddie worked his old Marshalls you can see why the amp was designed this way.

But for those of us who are not Eddie Van Halen, the separate EQ sections were a nice addition to an already incredible amp. The head is best paired with a Peavey cabinet, although some players prefer setting it atop a Marshall cabinet with speakers they feel have a bit more clarity than the Sheffield-loaded Peavey cabs.

Personally, I do not agree and have always loved the dark and resonant thump of the Peavey cabinets. To satisfy players looking for a more British sound, Peavey created the Many players had already been swapping out their 6L6s for EL34s for years.

Another good move by Peavey. Depending on your taste and style, any of these heads could be a top choice for a metal amp. For many guitar players, the Peavey is the best metal amp out there. Peavey Plus Combo A relative newcomer to the line, the combo has a watt rating and a single 12" speaker.
