Lots of Control Over Your Sound

By DrummerMan-.xn32

from Orlando, FL

See all my reviews

When I was in the market for a more powerful amplifier, this one beat out Ampeg, Eden, Namesis, Hartke, Gallien-Kruger, Bag End, and SWR. It allows me to get a transparent slap bass sound, as well as a warm, slightly distorted, middly Jaco sound out of my bass, and everything in between.I do wish it had a switch to defeat the effects chain, which it doesn't. I also find there are so many controls for the mid-section it can be hard to remember where to set them to get the desired sound. I think this is the primary reason it's not offered anymore, in spite of the great flexibility it gives you to alter your sound - it's probably confusing to the average person to use it. But it's the best I could find at the time, and I'd be sick if I had to buy something else.....

Good amp for the money

By Via Noctis Bassist

from Wisconsin

I use this amp with 2 SWR 4x10 WP cabs in a thrash metal band. I beat the crap out this amp and go head to head with my guitarist who uses a Mesa 2-100 and a Marshall full stack. The only problem was the reset switch in the back !crumbled! during a gig. Other than that, this amp has been all-pro. The different amount of tones you can get out of this thing is amazing. Now I just wish they made a 750 watt version.

Powerful & Punchy

By KS Pete

from Kansas City

See all my reviews

I have been using a Genz-Benz 500H for several years, and it recently bit the dust. I had played a friend's Peavey combo and I decided to look at their head units. The Peavey Pro 500 is the most feature packed unit you can buy for the money. The parametric EQ - I don't even know how I lived without it all these years. The amp has plenty of punch and tons of clarity. There's no mud at all.I have my Peavey Pro 500 racked with a DBX compressor and running through an Ampeg 8x10 cabinet. It's the best combination I've ever played.
