Peavey 6543+ Guitar Amplifier Head

It’s no secret that we’re fans of Peavey amps here at Gear-Vault. One of my personal favorite amps by Peavey is the XXX. It’s a mean sounding amp. Next in line, for me, is the 6505+ because it’s basically a 3-channel 5150 with much better sounding chimey cleans. I’m excited to see Peavey are active participants at the winter NAMM 2010 show. Peavey are happy to announce the all-new 6534+ Guitar Amplifier Head – the next evolution of the high-gain 6505 Series, which has defined the sounds of aggressive guitar music since 1991. Read more

Peavey Launches the All-tube 3120 Guitar Amplifier

Peavey 3120

Peavey is pleased to announce the debut of the all-new Peavey 3120 high-gain guitar amplifier head, a versatile three-channel amp with 120 watts of power and a trio of distinct voices capable of producing guitar tones from crisp and clean to total high-gain saturation.

The Peavey 3120 gives rock guitarists a triple-threat tone onslaught with generous amounts of gain, 120 watts of power and three fully independent channels of all-tube, tone-shaping performance. Each of the separate “Lead” and “Rhythm” channels feature its own gain and volume controls and an active three-band EQ, while the “Clean” channel offers nicely rounded sounds crafted by a passive three-band EQ and volume control.

The 3120’s global master volume governs the amount of power put out by its four 6L6GC or EL34 power-amp tubes, while the gain controls on the “Lead” and “Rhythm” channels adjust the amount of 12AX7 preamp gain saturation.

The 3120’s rear panel hosts a unique Peavey custom tone control feature: a three-setting damping switch that alters speaker resonance to create tight, medium and loose tones, from a precise punch for rhythmic attack to a full, widely resonant sound. Also on the rear panel is a footswitchable effects loop with dedicated send and return controls and a line out with level control. For more information, see Peavey’s official site for more.
