I've used this amp a couple of times and it is awesome. My friend owns one and every time i am near it I have to play it. The distortion is great while the clean is crystal clear. The effects are great too. I definitely recommend this amp.
I have been playing guitar (mostly old type Rock&Roll) for 30+ years and have owned many diferent tube and solid state amps including Peavey, Fender, Ampeg, Marshall, and Crate. Many of them came close to what I was looking for at the time but none come close to this monster. I play it through a Laney cabinet with 2 Celestions. This amp has so many different sounds that can be achieved at the flick of a switch using the vintage-modern-high gain settings. The effects are really good (9 total), but can be a liitle confusing with all the parameters. However the factory settings are just fine for me. The included footswitch is configured a little bit different from the usual, but takes no time to get used to. And the switch is the good old Peavey bulletproof construction with a very long cord to boot. And now about the volume. Wowwwwww. This thing is louder than any amp I have ever had, clean channel or lead (even 200 watt models). If this thing is only 100 watts I'll kiss your Mother). One thing that I always hated about most high powered amps was the fact that when you cranked up the pre-gain for distortion, the post gain became too sensitve. Not so with ths baby, especially if you use the power switch (25,50 or 100 watt settings--Handy!!). Volume galore, so many sounds, good EFX. Buy it quick. You won't be disappointed.
This amp I had low expectations for. It was extremely affordable, which was nice for my wallet but made me think it would suck. It didn't. I was surprised with the versatility of the amp. It has three different overdrive channels (Vintage, high gain, and modern), each of which have their own charm and strength. I had a Marshall AVT50H before I bought this, and I was pleased to find that the Peavey could give me a sound that was extremely close to the overdrive on the Marshall. In fact, I would say that the Peavey has even more gusto behind it, and it is twice as powerful. The clean channel is pretty good, and it has built in effects. If you need a good amp at a ridiculously low price, this one takes the cake.
While shopping for a head, on a budget, I had to consider Peavey. I never liked their guitar gear, and I've been gigging since 1968. So I had a longstanding attitude. Well, I have had a conversion experience. Playing hard rock on the weekends in all kinds of clubs put this head to the rock test at it passes with flying colors.
I grew up around peavey amps, due to my cousin working at Daddy's Junky Music. They are always good and this one was no exception. I tried out my friends. That transtube thing is awesome, because it sounds like a marshall or a randall but is cheaper. Very close to an actual tube sound and the thing has no tubes to replace. It's a fun amp and I like the setting options. You'll be amazed what the head will put out, and with high quality. It is just amazing
