    I don't think Misha's done the Engl thing since the first album. On his Axe, I believe he mostly used the Recto, 5150, and Friedman amps the most.

    And he's had an overdrive with Protone for awhile now. It's just he ditched them and decided to make his own.

    Peavey ehh?

    Bet it's made in China. Looks like a great feature set though.

    It's made in the USA! I packed every feature I would want in my dream amp, and this thing sounds absolutely monstrous.
    I'll show everything off at NAMM, it's been hard to keep this one under wraps as we were developing it haha.

    I'm intrigued... I'm quite interested to see the back panel. Is this amp based at all on the original 5150 sound?

    If you can say one thing about it... Is it based on the 5150, Ultra (XXX, JSX, etc), or is it it's own thing?

    EDIT: And will Periphery backlines be ....ing awesome with Peavy fullstacks in the background like the old Loudness shows?

    Facebook video.

    So, it's basically a souped up 6505+. Has the Crunch and Lead of the 6505+, with an ACTUAL clean channel, and both gain channels have a TS-style boost/noise gate.

    It's sends out MIDI cc4 in case you want to assign a custom function to that switch, tap tempo, tuner, etc for your midi device!

    We actually started with an original block letter, but obviously tweaked it from there. Ch2/3 have a wide range of sounds, but Ch2 has more low mid and purr, Ch3 has more hi mid and god save us all "djent". It's insanely pissed off especially with the Drive, the gate is ultra tight, the clean channel rules.

    The 9 volt power supply on the back is kind of a neat idea.

    Reminds me of the old Randalls that had 3-prong outlets on the back.
