I purchased this amp mainly for my son, he has an older Peavey TNT amp, it's a great amp but extremely heavy and hard to handle. In it's day it was one of the best bass combo amps in it's field but, not anymore. This new amp is lighter,more powerful and, has better features than his older TNT. Him and I have a duo and the size and power ratio and features of this amp will be perfect for what we are doing. I played bass many years ago and lugged around monster amps and, I guarantee this little gem would probably have stayed right with the monster amps and probably maybe even have blown them away. Seriously, this amp for this size and power can get LOUD! I'd have loved to have this amp back in the 60's my back and arms would have really appreciated it. I got a Great buy through MF they always come through with just the deals I'm looking for. My son plays an older model Peavey Cirrus bass with active electronics and, it sounds real sweet through this amp. Highly recommended!

I am primarily a guitar player, but have an increasing calendar of of bass gigs on my upcoming schedule. I had owned a Peavey bass amp combo thirty years ago and had hoped this would be comparable to that unit. Unfortunately this is not as substantial a product. The cabinet is smaller for portability, but the largeness and warmth is compromised. The control pots seems very inexpensive and while placed for ease of access are also begging to be snapped off. There is a lot of play in them right out of the box. The on board tuner seems calibrated for a very high input as it keeps going out even while the string is ringing and I have to pluck hard (which makes the pitch sharp) to get it to read. I will continue carrying a tuner.

I have not yet used this on a gig, but I am far from thrilled with it at this point. The price was beautiful, but I will continue to pine for that Peavey combo of old.

Put wheels on it for easy movement. Took to its first job. Ran about 20-30 seconds and quit on me. Had to play through the sound system that night. Didn't return because I had put wheels on it. Turned it into a 15 inch extension cab

    This amp is loud. I've used on small/medium/large venues. Sounds good, loud and clear with my 5-string Jazz Bass. Goodbye Ampeg!

      Comments about Peavey Max 115 II 1x15 300 W Bass Combo Amp:

      We purchased this amp for our church that seats around 300 comfortably. I was going back and forth on whether to get the Peavey Max 115 II or the Fender Rumble 100. I went with my gut instinct... Peavey has never let me down before. This amp is amazing. It has a very clean sound and is very powerful. The sound absolutely fills the sanctuary with the volume at only halfway. The tones are deep and rich which are just right for our praise and worship band. The built-in tuner is a super cool feature that I now consider to be a 'must-have'. I purchased this amp as an 'open box' item listed as 'mint' condition. It was delivered just as advertised...mint condition, and an unbelievable buy. Can't go wrong with this one!

        Comments about Peavey Max 115 II 1x15 300 W Bass Combo Amp:

        I ordered this amp without even hearing it in person because I needed a back-up for an older model Ampeg that I was using. This amp is a great value for the money---very loud and full. It is light and easy to carry--also easy to transport. Some reviews indicate sketchy knob durability and I agree that I would not place anything on the top of the amp for that reason. My bandmates noticed the difference in sound and for medium jobs I will use this. I just played a gig at a club last week and had the gain on 2 and volume on 2--these are almost the lowest settings and the amp was still loud and full. Turning it up more would have made me too loud. Thick low end and some high end sparkle can be achieved through the e.q. section. Remember that it is solid state, so some tube warmth and sensitivity might be lost if you are used to that style of sound. However, I have been pleased with Peavey products in the past (have owned many guitar amps and keyboard amps, as well as higher end PA equipment) so I did not expect issues. I am actually considering buying another one of these and running the pair at the same time when I play bigger jobs.

          Comments about Peavey Max 115 II 1x15 300 W Bass Combo Amp:

          I will be using this amp at home and for band performances/shows. I have had it about a month and love it. It's very powerful - impressive! It has the direct line out option to the PA and the auxiliary in jack - works slick. Sounds super not only with the bass guitar but also when running a keyboard through it. The 15" speaker is awesome, along with the tweeter. I knew it would be a super bass amp, but was pleasantly surprised by how awesome my keyboard sounds through it. The amp is not real heavy and I am very, very pleased with it all the way around. Very, very simple to use. Plug in and play! There are some reviews about the potential lack of quality of construction and concern about the knobs. I haven't had any problems and I don't foresee any issues.

          Comments about Peavey Max 115 II 1x15 300 W Bass Combo Amp:

          First tried this amp at guitar center and was blown away by its power. It was almost twice as loud as any other 350w 15". Bought it immediately from mf and I've been happy with it ever since. It has a lot of push push switches give it a lot of tonal variation. By engaging the low end clarity and the bright switch you can get a sound very similar to an 12". The only issues I have with this amp are with its build quality. The tolex around the controls doesn't look like much time was put into getting it right although I doubt I'll have problems with it becoming undone. The biggest problem is the pots. They make it very easy to wiggle the knobs and unless you want to replace all of the pots, there will likely be a problem with them in the distant future. All in all, it's a fantastic amp for the money.

            I purchased this amp to replace an Ampeg that was just not doing the job I needed. With this 300 watt Peavy, the "lack of power" problem was quickly solved. The whole band (DC Wallbangers) noticed right away that I had some extra thunder. Another great Peavy product!

              Comments about Peavey Max 115 II 1x15 300 W Bass Combo Amp:

              After receiving two bass amps that were dead on arrival (DOA), I went back to the Peavey. My lasts bass amp was a Peavey and it lasted 17 years.

              However, it was only 90 watts. This amp at 300 watts literally "shakes the house". It is easy to use and setup is minimal.

              I recommend using the bass booster and overall tone booster. Leave the mid-range and high end boosters off.

              You will not be disappointed with the sound of this bass amp. I highly recommend it.

              This amp started well until I tried to turn it in the off position. The switch sunk inside the amp. I was able to fish it out the first time but now it went deeper inside. The construction of the amp design is poor. I own about five other bass amps made by peavey and this is the first time I have been disappointed.

                Great amp all around. Built in tuner which is really convenient. But the best thing about this amp is way it allows you to hone in on your favorite sounds. With the modified buttons you can get really distorted for a dirty hard rock bass fuzz like Geezer Butler, or to a super funky punchy sound like Stu Hamm and everything in between. Definitely a great buy if your a local band that plays out often as I'm in. Portable at 50lbs makes things easy! Can't beat the quality at this price.
