OVERVIEW

Power, tone, attitude, and otherworldly effects for a pint-sized price!

The Peavey TransTube 258 EFX Combo is great for beginners, as a backstage amp, travel amp, or studio standby. You don't need to lug around a pile of gear to get great tone. 25W packs a helluva punch through the 8" Blue Marvel speaker. The TransTube 258 EFX guitar amplifier has 9 digital effects including flanger, delay, touch wah, and much more. Super-easy effects controls put you in full command every instant. Peavey's exclusive TransTube technology sounds and responds like real tubes. But the price tag is much smaller and solid state is much more stable and durable.

This amp rocks, it screams for its size at 25 watts. I own two small size amps. I just got a Marshall MG 15 dfx, whoah what a differance. The Peavey hands down out performs the Marshall in almost every catagory except for clean sound, the Marshall sounds better. Ok but first off this amp has a signature lighted effects so you can actually see which effect your using and how much effect your using, thats lighted to. The Marshall uses one knob which changes at every 1/4 turn on the same knob; 4 differant effects on one knob "not cool". The Peaveys effects level is also lighten up so is the reverb and the echo and they all change color on the Peavey when you increase the effects from yellow to green to red. The Marshall dosen't even come close to offering that. The Peavey only lacks in the clean sound by power but switch to second channel and your neighbors may call the cops because of screaming guitar riffs. I own both these little practice amps and by far this Peavey rocks. I was disappointed to find out that my brand new Marshall amp didn't come with a Celestion guitar speaker. THe back of the Marshall is inclosed so I had to take it off and see for myself. I bought it believeing that all Marshall use this type of quality speaker but I was wrong. The Marshall MG15 uses a generic speaker so now I will be ordering a Celestion speaker for it and hopefully it can hold up to this my killer Peavey. To sum up my opion, this amp rocks, it's loud very user friendly and comes with a great speaker for sound; Blue Marvel.... BUY iT!!!!

My parents gave me this amp one Christmas and I was happy at first but then after a while I got smarter about guitar equipment. First off, the clean tone is very bada**. I love how clean it really sounds. It is not muffled or anything. Just pure clean. However there is always a bad side to something that just has to seem so good. The lead really blows on this amp. I hate it. You can't get any distorion out of it really. It is just... weak. So I had to buy a DOD Death Metal Distortion pedal for it, which I love very much and reccommend getting. The effecs are nice indeed. I can't really complain there. But if you're looking for some good distortion then do not buy this amp. But if it is clean you're looking for then by all means, go for it.

Love It.

By LedZeppelin28352

from NC

I got the as my second amp after having a First Act for Christmas. I love it! The clean channel is pure and sounds amazing. The lead is great and when people say you can't get much distortion out of it that because its, supposed to be tubes. Anyways for high gain get a pedal. If you want a good amp and are short on cash. This is the one for you.

Small, but WOW

By Emt5150

I bought this yesterday as an upgrade from my small marshall amp, and I am very pleased. The onboard effects are decent, but I don't use them that much. The distortion on this amp's dirty channel is not great, so do yourself a favor and buy a Boss Ds-1 distortion pedal. Overall, I like it very much !

great practice amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I actually got this amp as a gift and have used it for around 4 years. I can't really use it at shows, unless the setting is really really small. the clean is really nice and doesn't distort, but it isn't quite tube quality sound. The distortion isn't great, but if you buy a tubescreamer, this amps sounds awesome. I have a start, and run a compression sustainer (boss cs-2) and an ibanez ts-9 through it. you can really get nice leads out of it that way. great product, but by no means a concert amp.

the little amp that could

By the tokin shredder

from Minnesota

See all my reviews

well Ive had about a years experience with this amp, overall it has alot of great features..its loud enough to annoy your roomates 2 floors up, but sadly..the lead channel is terrible, the 3only way to truly compensate for this problem is to use a digitech modeling guitar processor, on the other hand..the clean channel sounds really nice...and almost captures that nice warm tube tone, in the end I would have say..buy this if your just looking to throw some riffs around in a non serious manner, but if your truly looking for a players amp...your better off saving up and getting a half stack or a combo!

All-round good amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This was given to me at Christmas as my first amp. As I have gained experience, I have come to realize that this amp is the amp for beginners and small gigs. It is surprisingly loud for a 25watt and the clean is AMAZING. It's pure. The effects are easy to manage and sound really well. The reverb is amazing as well. The only drawback to this amp is the lead. You can't get much distortion out of this amp but simply buy a pedal and this amp is PERFECT. Buy this amp and you WILL NOT be disappointed. I use mine at home all the time.

All I need in a practice amp

By Kris-e.ps6

from Florida

See all my reviews

I've owned my 258 for about 4 years, it is has served me well both at band practice and at a couple small shows. The effects are very nice sounding, although I wish there were more (I recently got a GT-8 to settle this problem). The clean and distortion channels are both competent in their own right. The only gripe is that I have had to resolder the input jack a couple times, which was kind of inconvenient, but not too much of a hassle. Overall, I love using this amp and I will continue to.

Peavey TransTube 258 EFX Guitar Combo

By Treeunit212-w7CWq

from Detroit, MI

See all my reviews

This amp is the 1st amp that I have owned. It's a decent starter. It's plenty loud, the vintage setting sounds great, and most of the effects are decent. Some big problems I had with it is that the modern setting is too bassy and doesn't allow enough gain, and the clean channel is plucky and sloppy. Overall, this isn't a very good amp for the price. the small crates and line 6s are much better for the price.

Peavey managed to pack a lotta neato stuff, into a 1x8 25W package! So far, I haven't experienced anything negative with it. My favorite thing about the TransTube 258 EFX is, the touch wah is MUCH more controllable, than the auto wah on my Line 6 Guitar POD 2.0. I'd definitely do some recordings, with my Peavey.

Awesome amp! recommend 4 beginners

By Matewsbwoy

This amp is awsome....love the effects! Took a little time to figure out the distortion, but I got the hang of it! Can get very loud. Not enough distortion for metalheads, but good for punk, rock, and other not-so-hard stuff. If you want more distortion, don't buy another amp... just buy a pedal! The amp has satisfied me 100%!

Great Practice Amp

By Me-EZAcO

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

This is an excellent amp for practice on the go or to keep in your music room. If you're playing with a few people and don't need your amp to carry over a large crowd it's wonderful. The sound quality is great and it is very durable. I have had this amp for two years now and don't have a single complaint.

Good amp for the money

By Ross-FLUur

from Columbia, SC

This Amp has a great clean channel. Also, the effects that come with it work very well and are east to adjust. The only drawback is that it can't get a big amount of distortion on its overdrive. Its no big deal except for you metalheads out there. If you like heavy metal, I suggest getting a footpedal with this amp. However, this amp has perfect distortion for playing Henrix.

Little Monster!

By ESPec50!

from Lexington, KY

Awesome experience with this amp...but first thing I will suggest since this will either be bought for a beginner or as practice amp, purchase an fx pedal! I use a Boss MT 2 metal zone and it is really amazing the difference that bad boy made. As a beginner I was unaware that a pedal could take a practice amp like this and make it rock. I have an awesome ESP ec50 and play breaking benjamin, seether, metallica, on my stereo and use this amp to play along with it. My only complaint is that the wah effect does not work for some reason but I know peavey would take it back and fix it quickly. Oh yeah, last week i played with a drummer and a guy who had a 160 watt fender and had no problems..pretty amazing for 25 watts!

Awesome Practice Amp

By Blair Koehn

from West Point, Ne

This is one sweet amp. Its 2nd Channel is loaded with effects and overdrive. And its clean sounds pretty sweet too. It's got everything for practicing, but it doesn't go on stage.

great practice amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

My dad got this amp for me for Christmas. Ikeep it in my basement so I can use it for practice. It's great for that, but not for a rock camp. When Iwent to the rock camp this summer, it could'nt keep up with the biggerFender Twin Reverb, and the Fender Delux Reverb. It's best for practice and not much more.

Yeah, I never found it to be that great. It's clean channel is cool, and so is the digital effects, but the overdrive blows. It's already kind of falling apart, and I've only had it for less than a year.
