Uh oh. That's not a good sign. Keep us posted please.
We've all been Peavey'd!
I'll start polishing my pitchfork
Just got off the phone with a musicians friend customer support rep and he told me the Federal Trade Commission requires a customer to call in every 30 days to keep a backorder active. They sent me an email, but because I get 1 million BS emails per day the important stuff got buried and I didn't see it. Had to re-order the head and cab with the cab being at the new higher price
Booooo!! That sucks. MF should honor your originally ordered price.
On the flip side, I'm definitely relieved there's not some mass order cancellation going on. I want my Invective!
Yeah, me too.
I will probably call them back and see if I can work that out.
Give them hell. I can't stand MF anyways, so I hope you get more than the hundred bucks off. Tell them someone else has offered to give you that price difference and you might just go with them if that's the case.
Man that blows, I'm sorry you had to deal with that, sounds like red tape BS...
Oh trust me, I know half of you guys are just sitting by watching this and praying this thing ends up becoming the biggest failure of all time just for that sweet sweet endorphin rush you will get from all the schadenfreude.
I, on the other hand, would just love for this to be out. The demand was so much higher than anyone at Peavey was prepared for and they are playing catch up on production to meet the orders. This has happened with a few of my products, and it makes for a slow start, but eventually things catch up and even out. Fingers crossed people get their amps soon, and I really do hope they love them, because I think we made something really special!
I hope it does well, it seems like a cool amp, good feature set, and 5150's are a classic so it's not like it's some big new thing that might flop. It's a classic sound with modern appointments.
5150's have never really been 'it' for me for whatever reason, but I know they are for many people.
Was only joking, dude. I've been very positive toward the amp since I heard about it, my contributions to this thread so far make that evident.
Haha well in that case, while the sentiment is genuine, the message is not directed at you and let's just chalk it up to Poe's law at work!
Definitely stoked to see this thing hit the market, not sure if it something that I would grab, but it seems super cool and it just awesome to have something that seems so deliberately designed.
That exchange was a bit comical.
Just another day on the internets. Just wait until I start comparing you to Hitler.
I honestly dont think anyone wants to see this endeavor fail. Hell of all your past and current endorsements this seems to be the thing that appeals to the most people. I just think it has sorta become the norm these days that really promising gear implodes before its even released or there is such a shit show attached to it everyone is over it by te time they get their shit together. I honestly think many are excited for this release. Either way i hope you dont feel some of the tongue in cheek humor is a sign that people really want this to fail. I just think with so many failed product launches that people would rather be prepared for the worst rather than expecting the best.
I'm sure plenty of people want to see it succeed. I'm sure there are also quite a few who actually hope it fails if only so they can say, "I told you so." So they can say that an amp that is "just a 5150 with decent cleans for three to four times the price of a used one," was always destined for failure. But of course those of us who are looking forward to it see it as much more than that.
You know how it goes. Haters gonna hate. Trolls gonna troll. Lol
But hey...maybe I'm just a cynic.
Also a lot of people seem like they expect it to fail, given Peavey's track record with endorsements and sig gear in the passed 10 - 15 years.
I think it will do great, as shown by the 5150 itself, the amps features are what sell it more than any endorsement. Clearly the massive high gain tone and being rugged as fuck are what made the 5150 the legendary amp it is, Eddie's name on it was not what built the legacy.
I agree! IMO The 5150 amps have been THE metal amp to compare everything else to. Not because Eddies name is on it but because they sound killer. We can thank Eddie for having great ears, I'm sure he helped in voicing the amp.
