    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.

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

    Was very suprised in the quality and usefullness of this amplifer for the price. I purchased it to use for smaller gigs and rehearsals that dont require my larger head/cab setup. However when I plugged this amp in and tried it out, I found that it was almost every bit as powerful as my 350 watt amp head, and doesnt sound too bad in comparison.
    I love the Transtube boost option. It is great for that old shool bass fuzz tone. However, this feature is not footswitchable so its almost useless playing live unless you keep it on, but it is definently a fun feature.
    I used the D.I. feature at a gig this past weekend and it seemed to work great and be noise free. Tuner works fine for me, and the push knobs and controls offer alot of options to tune yor eq to the room.
    My only gripes are that the unit doesnt have the ability to add an external speaker, the TT/Boost feature isnt footswitchable, and the knobs are in a comprimising position that makes them at risk for damage during transport.However, in my opinion there is absolutley no better amplifier at this price or less. At this price, who could complain?
    Overal this is a great product for the money, and a decent product in comparison to more expensive amps on the market. I would recomend it to anyone looking for a downsized but powerful rig on a budget.
    If your interested in one, I would recomend getting it from musician's friend. Best customer service in the business.
    Buy one. If your as happy with yours as I am with mine, you bought yourself a good amp that will serve its purpose. Hopefully for quite awhile.

      Initially I had to take the amp back to the store only to find out the power cable was out. The store was happy to replace the power cable, free of charge. The amp is loud, has great tone and is easy to transport. Great value for the cost.

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

            This is one of the few bass amps in its price range with a full-size 15-inch speaker and decent power, 300 watts rms. It's also portable, weighing 43 pounds with a handle on top. Wide range of tone control. It has the usual gain, low/mid/hi, and volume knobs. Each knob has a corresponding pushbutton that does something different to the tone---for example, one is bass boost, one is punch, and one changes the center frequency of the mid equalizer knob. It has a tweeter, so the amp also works well with my Yamaha PSR-E423 keyboard---both low and high notes sound great. Tone is warm and clean, more gain adds volume but not much distortion. Has separate inputs for passive and active basses, plus microphone. Enough power to rattle my furnishings, would be good for small gigs. The tuner works well. Very easy to operate. I play a Zoom B1X multieffects pedal through a Dean Edge 10 active bass and have lots of great sounds on tap. I think this is the bass/keyboard amp to buy as long as it has enough power for you!

                Bought this as a performance amp for my son who plays electrict, accoustic electrict, and string bass. I wanted the 15" to help the string bass, and needed something easier to transport than the Peavey Tour TNT 115. I have the TNT 115 for school, and had to make a cart to transport it. I needed something close, and the MAX 115 is doing the job. It has plenty of power for my son's needs and easier to transport.

                I use this as my stage monitor in a relatively large church, and it does the job well. It's wonderfully portable, inexpensive, and is loud enough to fill a big space when the sound guys forget to put me through the PA. It seems to lack a bit in the tone department, but when I use my Tech 21 Bass Driver (every bassist should have one) between my bass and the passive input the sound is excellent.

                I gave this product 4 stars mainly because for what I look for in the music I primarily play(heavier styles of metal) I can't get a lot of depth out of the tone. My P-Bass sounds good when in standard or Drop D tuning. But Anything under that I can't get much depth with it, using my P-Bass or my Esp Ltd D-4. Other than that, it is an amazing amp with amazing out put. Lots of power. Different input for basses with active or passive pickups. It is an overall amazing product minus its few cons.
