I have been using the Escort for 5 years. I play acoustic music in bars. The sound is good and I never get above six. I have been generally happy with it however the reverb unit went during the first year and required a repair. I always worry about wheeling it around on the built in luggage type wheels shaking the unit loose. Hence, I carry it except on the most smooth surfaces. Suggestions are:1)A more secure connection for mounting the speaker. I have had it blow around like a Leslie speaker when performing outdoors. 2) The speaker stands are cheesy and as they only go to shoulder height so some drunk guy invariably stands in front of one and wrecks the sound then trips over the flimsy, wide base. 3) A 1/4 out for monitoring it. 4) The snaps that hold the speakers on the board for packing always come undone.4) A small light over the mixer or illuminated sliders.

My local music dealer let me take this out to try out one night as I had been looking for something more portable to do my solo 12 string guitar and vocal act with. I had been lugging far too much gear and it was just getting to be a pain to carry so much gear for a solo act. I will give it this it is portable. But the sound was quite cheesy to say the least. I've never been a Peavey fan besides. What really sucks about this unit is there is one and only one lousy effect and that is reverb. Big Deal. For the price of this garbage you'd think there would be more onboard effects. To me this was just another piece of junk. I high discourage buying this if you're looking for something portable. Just glad I did not buy this garbage.I rest my case.

Recommended for Acoustic Groups

By a12stringer

from Midwest

See all my reviews

I purchased this almost five years ago shortly after Peavey introduced the line. I replaced a Fender Passport system which I had owned for the previous three years.My first sound reinforcement system was a Peavey back in the mid-70s. I have always associated Peavey with value for cost and this does not disappoint. While not as powerful as the Fender for the price, this had one essential feature feature the Fender lacked: EQ. In the Fender Passport, EQ was nothing more than a single tone control per channel. With the Peavey, I at least have two-band EQ per channel with 5-band master EQ and the FLS works perfectly.I have used it for small gigs in coffeehouse settings and for pre-recorded music playing DJ at my class reunion last summer.Could the speaker stands be more sturdy? Possibly--but then they'd be so bulky I'd have to schlep them around in a separate carrier. I have not had any problem with these so I find them adequate for my needs.I do not find the lack of FX to be a problem. I have. Simplicity is the virtue of this product. For acoustic music a little bit of reverb is all that I need. If I want them for my guitar I can use a stomp box.

Tried and tasted

By Clive Melton

from Somerset, England

See all my reviews

I've been using my Escort 2000 to support a solo to 4/5 piece acoustic set up, for over a year now and have found it excellent. I've used it for amplification of vocals, guitars, keyboard and cello, against a backlined bass guitar. I did replace the rather amateurish looking speaker cables with better ones and use SM58 mic's rather than the PVi, but I also managed to run a powered monitor via the aux out channel. This is more satisfactory than the user manual's rather naff suggestion of turning one of the speakers round. Many peolpe at gigs in pubs, clubs and even small theatres where I have used it, are amazed at the quality of sound from such an apparently simple and basic piece of kit. I think it is better then it looks.

Working Acoustic Player

By JW-kmpSQ

from On the road

See all my reviews

I use this system 3 days a week for a solo and duo gig. It is so easy to set up and tear down. I would recommend a powered monitor and run it from the line out. Just enough power for small venues. Nice onboard effect for vocal and also is stereo. Great Value!

Especially Perfect!

By The Phoenix

from Houston, TX

See all my reviews

My Peavey Escort 2000 is especially perfect for me as a solo performing singer-songwriter! So perfect, in fact, that I own 2! I keep one as a backup unit, in case problems happen with my primary unit. If one of these goes down, I'll definitely replace it with another Peavey Escort 2000, or whatever they'll call it in the future. I've had NO PROBLEMS for 3 really busy years. In my book, that doesn't get ANY BETTER!

Works for classical music

By JamesGaskin

from Dallas TX area

I have one I use for our classical chamber music quartet - flute, violin, viola, cello. We mike each instrument, run through a small Behringer mixer and into the tape in stereo Channel 5 on the Escort. Gives plenty of volume for us. When we played last weekend inside a gazebo, I used the feedback eliminator for the first time - the light came on in the equalizer channel with the feedback, I dialed that frequency down, and the feedback disappeared. We're happy, and the integrated stand compartment with the small stands (the speakers are plastic and not that heavy) keep us from having to carry another bag with speaker stands.

Great durable PA for the money

By PastorB

from Etowah, TN

We've owned the Escort 2000 for 3 years, and havent had any problems with it. It serves as our church PA, and is used several times every week. The sound is great! The speaker stands are a little flimsy, but we used them for the 1st two years without any trouble. This is a great value for the money.

Great small venue system

By djsmith628

from Washington DC area

I purchased this to play background music and dance sets for my daughter's wedding. We were in a ballroom measuring 49ft. x 102 ft. Never had to go above 5 to fill the room. Sound quality was exceptional. Setup was a breeze. Transport was easy. This is a great value for small venue sound. Received numerous commpliments from guests. Looking forward to many years of using this for Church events now that the wedding is over. Tested it with multiple instruments via direct boxes, iPod inputs, computer inputs, etc. prior to the wedding. Very easy to setup up and get great sound with all of them.

Very Close to being Great

By Richard-7qMMX

from Oklahoma

I am in the studio recording at least once a week and run med-large live events 2-3 times a week and have done so for the past 5 years. I have been running sound for almost 12 years now. (This was just a side note to give you an idea of my back ground.) I owned and used the escort for over 4 years now. Electronically it is a pretty good system. The sound is good and it is easy to set up. Plenty of power small to low-mid size events. If Peavey would change the following it would be one of the best (small) portable sound systems out. 1) Use larger wheels on the bottom, it doesn't roll well on carpet. 2) Make the speaker stands larger or make the hole for them on the bottom of the speaker smaller, so they fit together. 3) Get better lock downs for when it is all placed together. {It is very annoying when you are pulling the unit behind you and the speakers become unlocked and bounce off.) 4) A bit more storage for the stands would be nice as well.I hope this has helped you in your decision making process.
