The Peavey Trans Tube 212 ...

By Doc Nelson-_f8Fq

from Kansas City, MO

See all my reviews

I am a former Road Musician that has well over a million miles as a pro player. I've owned and used all of the major tube and solid state guitar include the high end "boutique stuff." The Peavey Trans Tube 212 does everything that I need it to do live to cover what Brent Mason or Dann Huff did in the studio. I used to carry around $10,000 worth of rack gear out to shows to match the sounds, textures, and tones of the session players. I'm using my TransTube 212 and a Strat now! I have a friend that designs and builds a fine boutique amp line. I have owned, played, and endorsed his amps in the past. He had a COW when he heard that I was gigging with a "Peavey." I told him that 1. This amp's got the tone without the trouble of tubes, and without a ton of outboard effects...2. The Trans Tube 212 is not tempermental like tube amps can be when they're asked to work overtime...3. I don't feel that I need a boutique amp that cost 10 times what the Peavey does sitting on stage to testify to my skill as a player...or lack of it. This amp sounds GREAT! If you CARE about your tone, and you can only have one amp, buy the Peavey TransTube 212!

best amp

By MetaLFriK

from monterrey, mexico

This is probably the best amp i have had.... its crunch is incredible and its clean tone is really nice and crisp.. the 9 effects are kick ass plus the reverb and delay are among the best ive heard... i play death and black metal which needs serious power and an earth shattering distortion...this one is it..INCREDIBLE

Great amp

By Josh-PKGzX

from Warner Robins, GA

I have lost interest in my Marshall amp all together since i bought this one! The sound is great and the volume can blow you away if you want it to! I don't even have to mic up any more at gigs while my other band mate has to mic his mesa boogie. peavey has won me over with this amp which is also not to hard on the wallet.

Awesome amp

By WvOOUr1Ts

from Lagrange, Georgia

I went looking for an amp i could play in a small gig i had and found i liked this peavey a lot better than the marshall i was going to look at. Great sound. Effects are awesome. Great distortions. Good footpedal comes with it. All in all it's a great amp.

Worth every penny.

By Drink yo juice

from Milford, Ohio

I've had this amp now for a good 3 months. I've come to a few realizations. This amplifier will make any guitar, weather its good or not, sound absolutely amazing beyond belief. Anyone wanting to start getting serious with a guitar should pick up this amp.



By Michael Nicolai

from Oconomowoc, WI

The only downfall I've had is that there's no ability that I could find to hook the amp through a sound system. Besides that, this amp has done everything for me!


Great combo amp

Excellent amp with superior tone, and power.


Wish I could do it justice

By gone2pot

from Clarksville, MO

I play an old Gibson ES175D on the porch. Across the street is the Mississippi River so I only annoy the fish, but I like to play as loud as the feedback allows. Way more than I'll ever need but I sure like this amp.


Can't beat it for the money........

By Satriani wanna be

from Wooster, Ohio

I have only had the Peavey Transtube 212 EFX for about a week, and I'd have to say it is a good buy for the price. This amp does scream as everyone says. I can barely get by with a few pegs of volume on it before I start rattling windows. The effects are easy to use and the foot pedal is very straight forward. The Peavey quality definitely stands out in this amp. I'm still working on getting a lower bottom end to this thing but it could be the Satriani signature Ibanez I'm using in it. Will wait and see. Still a great sound for solid state, and a lot more straight forward to use than the Line 6 I had. The only downside so far is the lack of a battery backup for saving effects settings. Hopefully, they will improve on that in future models......


This amp rocks

By Lebenistgut

from California

This amp is LOUD. It shakes my walls, it is also very versatile and has a very wide range of sounds. The tonal quality is excellent, whether it is cranked up or down low.


Will make your friends jealous!!!

By SK8R AX350

from Tucson, Arizona

I got this amp about 2 months ago and it's amazing! I play a Schecter Diamond Series OMEN 6 and the pair sound amazing! It doesn't have that many effects but that's what pedals are for. Our bassist says that my amp sounds better than the other guitarist's amp. This thing gets incredibly loud also. I only have to turn it up to the fourth notch to overpower everyone else that's playing. You will not be disappointed with this amp!

The Amp Is The Best

By Tom seader

This amp is Great!!! The effects have to be the best around that you can get on a combo amp like this one. I would choose an amp like this one over a Marshall because of the great sound and effects on this great amp.


Powerful bottom-end accompanied by great leads

By dulaxx12

This amp takes Marshall, Fender, Vox, and Mesa Boogie and wipes the floor with them. With 135W of power, you can play any gig you want... furthermore, the features are incredible. I've never heard an amp shake the floor like this one before, but you DO NOT get the noisy loud annoying fuzz of the other amps I listed above. This amp allows for cut dynamics and 3 excellent channels of variety. If you can't make this amp sound good, you should be a drummer.


its pretty good ;-)

it's good, but to get really good distortion you better have a pedal.


Better than a Gibson of the Same Value

By LesPaulAce1432

from Ottawa,IL

I owned this guitar amp for a little over 2 months and it is awesome! I had owned a vintage Gibson amp prior, but when that crapped out I got this and it is clean when you want it, and dirty when you dont. A kid in my band plays with a Gibson 1/2 stack, it was around $800 at Guitar Center, and I got this for way less than that and it sounds like a million bucks. It has enough power to drown out that amp and it is so much easier to use. While he was trying to figure out his effects and pedal. I was already blasting away. Very little feed back compared to the Gibson, and it gives you that vintage sound. The pedal is sweet also, the pedal that came with the Gibson had two selections, this has 8 in total: presets, channel select, effects, and delay. For someone looking for a great giging amp go for it, it will be able to keep up with the Gibson line of amps. Overall I play old classic rock songs and it is perfect for that. If you are a hardcore metal player this amp can be turned to heavy distortion to fill your needs. The effects are also cool, all you really need is there.


Great for the $$$$

By Jackson4life-s7UHD

from Canton, OH

This amp is truely awesome. I've had mine for over a year now. It's positively dissugsting loud. You can set the tone to virtually anything you could ever want.. the ONLY down fall of this amp is the distortion is awfull.. But seriously, who uses their amps distortion.. Get an overdrive and a distortion pedal and you will have everything you'll ever need to shed on this amp.. It is great for all styles of music, from classics to death metal.. I play them all and this amp delivers.. If your looking for the total package and you dont have a ton of money here is your amp!!


great amp for the price

By rockerfromnowere

from louisiana

i bought it used, but in good condition and it's great. the effects sound awesome on it. you can turn the gain up and make it more metal and then add some effects to make it great for soloing.



By stratman420.5

from NY

This is a GREAT amp, its a peavey, so you know it will last for ever. I bought this amp as a practice amp since i have a 6505 stack, but i use it just as much as my 6505. Its got a wide line of efx, keeps the most hardcore knob tweaker busy all day. I use a Gibson SG, and let me tell you it SCREAMS, from pretty good distortion, to cleans. Overall, BUY THIS AMP.
