    I'm hoping to get one and use the onboard boost and gate, then have a G System for the small amount of fx I'd use and amp switching. Then I can have it all hooked up with the G's brain on top of the amp and the board at my feet. It'd be wonderful to have such a clean and easy setup. I really get sick of hooking up my board every day. Sure it's only 4 cables, but most of the time I just wanna flick on the amp and get to it. Plug and play all day, baby.

    Well, I don't have any noise issues using 4CM with my FX8 and my TC-50. And that's true whether I use "humbuster" cables as recommended by Fractal or if I just use regular instrument cables. I also don't have any issues using 4CM with the FX8 and my Mark Five:25. I even had them both hooked up in stereo via 7CM and had no noise issues.

    We will see in a month or so if it's an issue with the Invective (if so, I'll likely be able to remedy it in a couple of reliable ways). You're right that some amps have notorious FX loop issues, luckily none of mine have so far.

    As Misha said , try the amp when it is available and decide for yourselves .... my favorite amp of all time is the Peavey 5152 , I've been fortunate to own Bogner, Diezel, Soldano, Fryette, ENGL, Friedman, Fortin, etc etc.....Some very great amps in there own right but it amazes me that the high gain tone I like most comes from an amp I can buy on the used market for around $500.

    Point being is its actually a tall feet to improve on the 5150 amps because they sound so great to begin with that sometimes when refining that tone you end up taking the balls away. I have my fingers crossed that this version ends up being great and I think Misha is spot on with all the design features he added. They make the amp way more versatile in a live situation while cutting down on the amount of external pedals and switching loops/controllers that would normally be needed with the original amps.

    So best of luck to you Misha, I hope everyone digs the amp and they sell like crazy !

    I think the Boost with tone control on each channel is the most interesting part. I'd love to play with one just to see the possibilities because depending on the boost circuit I can see how that feature could potentially make the amp versatile enough to imitate a wide variety of sounds usually found from other types of amps.

    Devin Townsend had a signature guitar with Peavey. Iirc prototypes started as far back as 2007 and was supposed to be released in 2008/2009 but got pushed back all the way to 2011. The guitar released with little fanfare or promotion, Devy quietly dropped Peavey for Framus, and the guitar was discontinued.

    I used to, but I live in a small space and I once tripped over my cables in the night. Once was enough.

    You might also consider a small area rug that you put over the cables.

    I just got off the phone with guitar center, they told me they are expecting to have them in on August 14th. Hoping that doesn't change, been without an tube amp for a good bit at this point.

    I hope you're right. All I know is if mine isn't here in November when Periphery come to town, I'm totally stealing one of Misha's. :D

    Whatever happened there anyway? It's like Josh was with Ibanez in 2007, was with Peavey in 2008, then switched to PRS in 2009.

    ^ Exactly this... lol.

    Luckily I scored one so that's all I care about haha. MF/GC had them available for pre-order and everything. Then they just refunded the money a year later when it was cancelled. Did the same thing with the Amplitube pedalboard that never made it to market. Add the Peavey DT to that list lol.
