    I was looking for a small lightweight amp that had sufficient power and low end. This is it. I played both the Mark Bass 1x12 and 1x15, the 1x15 Peavey Max, and the TC Electronics 1x15 combo, and this one is the cheapest and best sounding out of all of them, no joke. I think the Mark Bass 1x12 is great and very lightweight, but to me the Peavey has more bottom end and it is almost 1/4 of the price of the MB. It still feels very light compared to any other amp I've ever owned, and it fits in the trunk of my car. Compared to the other 1X15 amps, this one sounds much better and has a better clearer sound. I have been a fan of 12" speakers for a while now for bass because it has sufficient low end without the muddy tones the 15" speaker give you. Add in the built in tuner, and you have a winner. I don't know how Peavey makes this thing so loud with less power and a smaller speaker, but I am telling you to at least try it and don't let the fact that it's less power and cheaper stop you. If you have tons of money, you might consider the MarkBass, but I'm still not sure that will be your ultimate pick. I am in a local cover band and play a wide variety of bars and clubs in the area, and to me it is the perfect amp unless you are touring with a national act and need something for stadiums.

    Bought the amp used but described "as new".. The Direct out did not work. The amp looked brand new, so im guessing the reason it was returned, in the first place, was because it did not work as is should. I blame Musician's Friend for not catching the issue before reselling the amp.

        Comments about Peavey MAX 112 II 1X12 200W Bass Combo Amp:

        I was looking for an amp that was portable enough to carry without breaking my back and powerful enough to stand out at rehearsals and small venues against loud guitarists and drummers. And this fits my needs perfectly. Its 40 pounds (20-25 pounds less than the average 200 W combo) and fits in the trunk of my car. Its very loud and tight. For those of us with a low b string the physcho acoustic enhancer is just SICK! Built in tuner is a nice detail. The aux in makes it a great practice amp for learning songs. I have an esp ltd deluxe six string and it sounds better on this little thing than on my big ampeg that i dont want to carry around no more. Its also good for big venues with the mic out. What else can i say? Five stars. Buy it

          Comments about Peavey MAX 112 II 1X12 200W Bass Combo Amp:

          Ok, over the years i have had many small cheap amps and always get rid of them, because they are never loud enough to play with other people (some were Peaveys years back). But i needed something small and portable and was really surprised. I could use this to play with a drummer and tube amp guitarist. Wow, for the price this 200 watt (63 RMS) is as loud as amps i have paid double for.

            Haven't had time to use it much but so far it way out-performs the Kustom KBX100, has good tone and packs some punch. I need to figure out all the different settings. My only gripe, if you can call it that, is the controls have no friction, it seems they just spin but they work OK, just way to easy to turn.

                  Needed an amp to play at local fair. This did not compliment the band at all. Returned next day. Bought Fender 350 combo that works great.

                    I was looking for a small lightweight amp that had sufficient power and low end. This is it. I played both the Mark Bass 1x12 and 1x15, the 1x15 Peavey Max, and the TC Electronics 1x15 combo, and this one is the cheapest and best sounding out of all of them, no joke. I think the Mark Bass 1x12 is great and very lightweight, but to me the Peavey has more bottom end and it is almost 1/4 of the price of the MB.

                      Comments about Peavey MAX 112 II 1X12 200W Bass Combo Amp:

                      I was pleasantly surprised when I compared the Max 112 II it to the Markbass Mini 121p. The Peavey is not as powerful as the Markbass...no surprise...but the Markbass in my opinion is not 600.00 better than the Max 112.

                      My first gig with this amp was with a 15 piece big band in a large club. This band is loud. I pushed the Max 112 II as hard as I needed and never ran out of head room. Plenty of volume. No distortion. I like the midrange punch. I was playing a Zeta Educator electric upright. I enjoyed the range of dynamics I could achieve from a light touch to digging in. The amp is very responsive and flexible. The tone controls are practical and effective.

                      I tried placing it on the floor in the tilt back position and it sounded great. The bass coupled with the floor to create a nice low end feel. I placed on a stool about 18 inches off the floor and the lows were tighter sounding.

                      My next gig will I will use Zon Legacy Elite 5 string in a small club playing jazz, blues and old hits. I am expecting to have great results as well.

                      If you don't need a heavy bottom you will like this amp.
