I bought the Peavy PV8 a few years ago for a decent price. I had had experience with other cheap small format mixers before, specifically ones from Yamaha, and found them too quiet. The Peavy performs well, has low noise, mic preamps sound decent to my ears. However, after a while the master output slider started to crackle when I moved it up and down. Its a real shame, because I'll have to buy another mixer if I want to play live gigs and not be embarassed. Really cuts into the mixer's value.

Best bang for the buck

By CajunStrat

from Louisiana

See all my reviews

Comments about Peavey PV 8 Mixer:

I bought this mixer for home use. It has all the possible jacks for any project. Best use would be home or small group. The mixer is rock solid, not a surprise for Peavey. It is ultra quiet and transparent (no effects). The phantom power is across the board. All level adjustments are smooth and silky. I plugged in my Boss DR-770 drum machine, computer sound card, and two shure mics (one vocal, one to my Peavey amp) ran everything out to my power monitors for a great sound. No distortion, no noise. This mixer is a steal for the money. Get it today and you won't be sorry.

I love this mixer

Comments about Peavey PV 8 Mixer:

I really love the PV8. Every positive thing that everyone else has alreadysaid is true. But I want you to know what the EQ frequencies are sincethey're not in the Operations Guide (I asked Peavey): respectively, theHigh, Mid and Low EQ's are at 12k, 450Hz, and 80Hz. All the other similarmixers that I looked at use 2.5k for Mids. I also like that this mixer isheavy and has very tough rubber feet (they look like the same 1" squarerubber bumpers that you'd attach to a wall to soften the blow of a doorknobor something). I mean, I had my headphones plugged in, and no matter howhard I pulled on the cable (while being careful not to harm the cable), Isimply could not get the mixer to budge, and so I was pretty impressed bythat. Lastly, the Phantom Power button is recessed, but I leave that onsince the mixer has a power button on the back (and also since theOperations Guide doesn't say to turn Phantom Power off before turning themixer off) :)

Comments about Peavey PV 8 Mixer:

I love this mixer. I use it primarilly for karaoke. It is durable, and depandable and sounds good. Build quality is outstanding. Has many of the features that you lok for in a true professional board. It is small enough to be prtable but large enough to not feel like a toy. If it had mute buttons on the channels it would be perfect.

Comments about Peavey PV 8 Mixer:

This is the absolute BEST non-powered mixer you can buy in this price range, in my opinion. I've had them all over the years: Mackie, Behringer, Yamaha, Soundcraft, Tapco--you name it. None comes close to matching the versatility coupled with rugged construction that this PV8 has. You cannot go wrong using one of these in your studio or, like I do, on stage with my multi-keyboards.

Comments about Peavey PV 8 Mixer:

PV8 Mixer: price is reasonable, small, portable, easy to use, works and sounds great, looks nice, sold on Peavey equipment. Sometimes Peavey makes their equipement heavy but they are road worthy, work horses and very reliable. I also have a Peavey 6 mixer and amp, power amp and speakers had them for a few years and never had any issues with anything Peavey makes, always very reliable.

Mixer Review

By Elizabeth-VUWTZ

from Indiana

Comments about Peavey PV 8 Mixer:

I bought this mixer recently and it is great. The sound is perfect. It was smaller than I imagined it to be. I had a different Peavey mixer of comparable size and it worked fine as well. You can't go wrong with this mixer.

Great Value for the Price

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Peavey PV 8 Mixer:

Well, I'm no sound-tech but I've used this mixer for home recording through an ancient PC. I run the output jack through a 1/4 - USB cable. The cable GREATLY reduces static sounds that will be recorded with any other type of PC connection. The mixer is small, but for the price its definitely a good deal for recording multiple instruments at once, I've recorded bass, guitar both electric and acoustic, acoustic drums mic'ed and vocal mic's. All of which produce great high quality media. For home recording purposes I highly recommend this Mixer. the only set back is the limited input jacks, hence the price!great buy! well-made?, obviously it's Peavy!

    Comments about Peavey PV 8 Mixer:

    This a great basic little mixer. Very clean. Has phantom power, external effects and monitor sends/returns. Also can return to channel input for more EQ control effects. Mixer is well constructed with sturdy metal housing. Perfect for acoustic gigs. The one thing I would change is the AC cable. It would be better if it had a standard 3 pin AC cable instead of the AC adaptor type. But at such a low cost, this mixer is a no brainer.

    Good Mixer

    By Rob Richards

    from 90210

    Comments about Peavey PV 8 Mixer:

    This thing is basic and well made. Clean mic preamps, transparent gain, recessed phantom power switch. I use it to run a single mix into a Fostex 8X8 multi-tracker. My drummer also has one for running a single drum mix. Only two negative comments: 1)wish there was a cut/mute switch for each channel so I could keep my level positions and 2)wish there was an XLR main output. I think I can get an adaptor for that.

    By Anonymous

    Comments about Peavey PV 8 Mixer:

    From having experience in recording and live sound, I can say this mixer is just awesome. Its simplicity is great but yet it has a monitor aux along with an fx aux. I purchased this little unit to replace me having to bring my huge rack with the mackie 16 channel and my back is so thankful. The mixer is a great buy and a must have for a starting out musician and/or sound engineer.

    Comments about Peavey PV 8 Mixer:

    Bought this for my home studio and couldn?t be happier. Does everything I want and now I can leave our big board in the road case. I have the PC plugged in and when I record I have everything setup to jump from one track to the next and this thing just keeps taking it. I would definitely recommend this mixer.
