I have used the older model of this amp in the past and compared to other bass heads, I find it quite exceptional and for what you would pay for an Ampeg SVT 3 Pro (which I had previously owned unfortunately and wound up being total junk) you can practically get a half stack. Great value and you can always find them used dirt cheap.
This is a great head for any type of music.I own the older version the FIREBASS 700 IT can rock through any type of music and be heard in the mix over anything. bravo Peavey.
I've been playing on a Peavey Centurian 3 for 26 years with no problems at all. It finally took the deep six, but, hey, I got my money's worth a long time ago. So, I had to break down and get a new head, and after the awsome service I got with the Centurian, going Peavey was a no brainer. I am very pleased with the Max 700. I am using it with a Rickenbacker 4001, playing through an Ampeg SVT-18 cabinet and Eastern Acoustics cabinet loaded with a 15" Black Widow. Boy, talk about solid. What a sweet rig. It is terrific. The extra headroom in power makes a tremendous difference. The whole band is smiling. I would certainly recommend the Max 700 to anyone. I believe you will be as happy as I am.
I traded in my old Laney RBW200 combo because I was sick of not being heard at shows and practice. I use it with a 4 ohm Avatar 2x12, and it is the loudest and best sounding thing I could have! I believe it will stand much abuse. I keep the eq at almost no change. I wish it had more shaping options is all, but not enough to make me rate it lower.
Peavey Max 700. Wow! I've played ampeg, swr, gk, hartke, just to name a few and none of those even come close to the sound, power and clearity that the peavey max does. I've spent a lot of time searching for the right bass head. I can honestly say I have found my bass soulmate! Overall. Nothing even comes close. Ampegs are nice but, they just don't even come close to peaveys!
I've used this head at least twice a week for the past two years and it has never failed me. Plenty of punch and volume. A little heavy to carry around, but you should expect that with higher wattage amps. The equalizer works very nicely. I play a Charvel CS-4a P/J electric bass and also a 1950 Kay upright (with Fishman pickup) through it with equally good results. I really like the ability to keep my tuner plugged-in for quick adjustments while playing.
This is a very good amp... I play a Warwick Corvette proline through it and the sounds are amazing. I also use a Peavey 8X10 touring cab which gives me more room then I'll ever need...Overall this is a good amp for any serious musician.
I had this head for about 3 months now..it is the first head I purchased, before I played on a York 200W combo. This head has a very clean, round and colourless tone. So if this is the sound you are going for, this may be right for you. It's very easy to get a good tone out of it, and it has all the features I could ask for. It has a section for bi-amping, and a balanced xlr out which comes in handy. Its made in the U.S. and is probably the most durable head you could buy. It's practically bomb proof! It can also operate safely at 2 ohms and puts out a maximum of 700 watts! My biggest complaints would be- 1) size - not only is it heavy (50lbs+) but has a huge footprint! 2)no speakon inputs 3)no headphones input 4)no mute button 5)clipping issues - this was mostly due to the fact that I had my gain set at noon, master at noon and my on board pre amp half way..I play an active spector and the pre amps run VERY hot! I now run the master at 4 oclock and adjust volume with the gain know..this fixed my clipping issue and I am happy with my purchase.
I own 2 Firebass 700's which are identical to the Peavey Max. Rugged, powerful, and great tone once you dial it in.. and did I mention powerful? I have a Peavey pro 8x10 and I can pop those speakers out of the box. These amps love powering a single 15" and 4x10 cab. You can't beat the price....Try it, you'll like it.
