That's what I was waiting to hear.
Congrats on this man it sounds like a great concept. I think the design is cool. Kudos for taking the oval off the logo. Although I always wondered why they don't use the Peavey logo from the actual original 5150s, or design a newer less cheesy one.
I use a block letter and this seems to have solved a lot of the issues with that amp. Well done. I can't wait to hear it.
I think i'm the only person alive who actually likes the Peavey lightning bolt logo.
The only thing i dislike about the way this amp looks is the Invective logo font. It just looks to..........plain and sterile. It needs just a tad more "character".
If this is only $1,500 .... is going to come out of my ass
I'm exceptionally eager to hear these and very stoked to hear how they are against a 5153. From the sounds of it, it's very fancy bells and whistles on an already viciously brutal platform. I'm on the EVH train, but it's still on the 5150 rail, so...
Street price is $1899
Unfortunately (imo) the amp's audio in this demo comes from the Mic Simulated Direct Interface.
I really want this amp to be good. Despite how godawful it looks from the description I'm pretty sure I want this so I hope to God it sounds nothing like that demo.
"Here's a demo with the boost dimed," said no one who ever wanted to make a video that sold a head. Need to hear something other than direct out on this.
Agreed. That was a wall of fizz.
Demos live from the NAMM floor always tend to sound like crap.
Truth. They are usually pretty worthless.
Talk about a bad first impression. I'm no fan of Misha's tone, but it's more that it's not my taste than being bad. This was objectively terrible. That's definitely an unfair way to hear an amp for the first time though. There's no way this could actually sound that bad, essentially being a 5150.
Haha that video doesn't sound so hot, might be the DI out, but I even got that to sound good.
Anyways, don't worry, I'll be demoing it tomorrow, hopefully you guys can get a sense of what it really sounds like if that gets filmed.
Been getting awesome feedback from people who have tried it so far, so I'm stoked!
I can't watch the video above because I'm at work.
I get the impression that a substantial number of people (fans of yours or otherwise) are going to base their opinion and subsequent GAS for this amp, on your namm demo alone. maybe, maybe not. I suggest having someone mic the cab properly and shoot a semi-pro video. The specs/details on this amp are killer, but we need our ears to agree with our eyes
That wasn't Mishas demo. It was just an on-floor NAMM demo using the MSDI. It's hard to get a decent mic'd tone at NAMM.
Cool, ya i figured it wasn't his demo above.
From the comments that came after the demo video, I have to assume any attempt at micing the cab would be infinitely better hehehe
Loving the concept of the amp Misha, and I think i speak for many when I say i'll trust your judgement on the sound/features. I hope it does well and that ill find some Kemper profiles of it soon! But to be clear, this is not a pro model then right?
And please tell me this, why do companies insist on using a terrible emulated out?! I mean how hard can it be to put a proper high quality IR in there to make it actually sound good? 8 inches away from the cone i read somewhere. Cause yeah, thats how metal guys like to mic their amps...
I wouldn't worry too much about the NAMM video. If the amp is really effectively a 5150/6505 with a decent clean channel for under $2k, there's a market for it. All the other features and Misha's name on it are just gravy.
Don't we still have any sounds of this besides that horrible mic sim video from Premiere Guitar?
