OVERVIEW

Perfect bass amp for small gigs and practice.

If you're tired of lugging around heavy gear to small gigs and rehearsals try plugging into the MAX 112. Peavey's exclusive HyperVent system is designed to push bass to the front of the cabinet so the full bass output of the speaker is realized. Its 40W of power drives a heavy-duty, custom-designed, 12" Peavey woofer to generate ample volume for small gigs and rehearsals.

Wide tonal range

Peavey's exclusive, patented TransTube circuitry gives you a choice of 2 distinct voicings--vintage and modern--for covering a wide range of sounds and music styles. A semi-parametric EQ adds further tone-shaping capability with low, mid, mid shift, and high controls.

An all-purpose amp

Perfect for small gigs, rehearsals, and with its CD input and headphone output, it's a great practice bass amp, too.

FEATURES
  • 40W RMS into 4 ohms
  • 12" speaker
  • DDT speaker protection
  • Gain control
  • Modern/Vintage voicing switch with patented TransTube tube emulation circuitry
  • Low, Mid, Mid Shift and High semi-parametric EQ
  • Post-EQ effects loop
  • CD input
  • Master volume control
  • Tuned, ported enclosure with exclusive dual HyperVent technology

The MAX 112 is a great sounding, powerful little bass amp that doesn't cost a lot. Order it right nowl

I've owned this little amp for a few years now and I have to agree with some of the other reviews, it a great amp! I'm using a first generation KOSMOS w/it and after setting the EQ's and the effects it growls like the the big boys. You can hear every string( including the B string ). Its also tuff. Mine fell out of the back of my Durango and except for a few dings, you'de never know it. I do agree that its small for the big venues, so I use a Cabgrabber and a sm57 to cure that. Sure, I'd like to have a 4x10 stack, but this will do nicely until I get one. If you don't need something heavey to lug around and want great sound, get one!

I have been a Peavey loyalist since 1980 with the purchase of my T-40 Bass, my T-15 guitar in 1983, and my current gigging bass a Peavey Foundation purchased in 1984. (Outstanding bass by the way). The new Peavey products just don't seem to have the quality control as the older Made in USA products. First thing to go on this amp was the volume pot that crapped out the same day I received it. Replaced by Peavey dealer under warranty. Next the plastic input jack broke in half and the part was replaced by Peavey, finally the voicing switch broke and would not switch between modern and vintage voicing which was the last straw. I will have this repaired and find a nice old TNT 100 amp to replace this one with. I love Peavey, but the new stuff is cheaply made. Sorry guys.

Comments about Peavey MAX 112 Bass Combo:

My very first amp was a MAX 112, back when Trans-Tube was brand new. It was a very solid, reliable amp. I threw it around into the back of my car and drove it to school every week for two years. Seemed like it weighed more back then... it probably did.

I liked the sound out of the new one I tried at the local Peavey dealer, and plan on getting one soon as my little MAX 126 just doesn't reproduce the low-B of my MTD 35" monster. I don't need all this much power for home, but it would be nice to take along and jam with my friends and be heard over the Roland Cube and Fender Mustangs.

Oh, and two reviewers had mentioned "tubes." They won't break because THERE AREN'T ANY. This is a solid state amplifier. There are no serviceable parts inside. The closest thing this has to amp modeling is that it really does sound like a tube amp. But it's all transistors, I PROMISE.

This will be my fifth Peavey amp. First three were all sold when I got married... I never had a problem with either of the new ones, and only the TNT150 (which was used) ever gave me a fault. I trust Peavey will be as reliable for me now as it was back then. I know I won't be abusing it as much as I did as a kid.

RGH Peavy Bass Amp review

By Ricky Hendrix

from Tyro, North Carolina

Ask me a question

Comments about Peavey MAX 112 Bass Combo:

This amp is more powerful and has a better tone than I expected. It actually is nearly as good as my Ampeg although not as many watts of power. A very good value for the money spent!
This amp is heavy, but plenty of power for small gigs and rehearsals.
As always, Peavy equipment is tough and reliable.
Very good value for the bucks!

Great for the price and what you can get out of it

By Dark Horse

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Peavey MAX 112 Bass Combo:

I'll be honest, you could definitely get better, but if you're tight on your budget you can't find better. I trust Peavy equipment all, and this little guy packs quite a punch and can still be heard over a drum kit, Crate half stack and a Marshall half stack!

Comments about Peavey MAX 112 Bass Combo:

ive owned this for a year now, i love it! I mostly just play it at home and on occasion with my friends band, i have no trouble being heard, especially at home :D deffinetly worth the money and for it being small enough to actually take it places its big enough to shake the house!

Packs a punch!

By RyanM

from Northern Illinois

Comments about Peavey MAX 112 Bass Combo:

This little amp has a loud voice! I've never heard my bass sound so good. The tubes really make a difference vs. solid state. I plan on purchasing one soon. My only issue is no direct line out. It's a great amp for stage use, practice, or small gigs, but in bigger settings you'll need a direct box to go to the board.

Great amp

By VicsROCK

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Peavey MAX 112 Bass Combo:

A lot of people are saying this amp is only a personal, at home, practice amp. Well, unless you practice in an empty warehouse that you want to fill with sound, its pretty loud for just practice at home. Its the perfect amp for rehersals with a band. I haven't gigged with it yet, but im sure it will hold its own. Last night I was practicing with the band, our lead guitar has a Marshall 50 watt, and we had an acoustic, electric and elecric drums. I had to back the amp off multiple times, because it was too loud. The only thing it lacks is the massive low end... it doesn't kick it as well once you get to the low end notes. Thats to be expected with the size of the speaker in it. But other than that, its great, and you don't have to refinance your house to get it. If your doing big gigs, its not for you, but its perfect for lower volume gigs and praise and worship at church and youth group. Great buy!

Great for practice and smaller gigs

By Bassboy101

from Undisclosed

Comments about Peavey MAX 112 Bass Combo:

I own one. I love the Amp. It is very durable. Its been through alot. It has fallen off stage and the tubes never broke. It has good low ends and high ends. I'm currently in a gospel group and the amp is good for small gigs and even some bigger gigs, but the amp will distort. I recommend the MAX 115(For 60watts its powerful) I have to say that the MAX 112 is very good for electric and acoustic guitars.
