    People need to relax, NAMM is for product announcements and you get some floor demos from various people if you're lucky. Actual availability of this stuff is never for months afterwards and pro-shot and reviewer demos show up before things are available to buy.

    NAMM = Not Available yet, Maybe May :lol:

    More amp makers need to collaborate with artists instead of just trying to appeal to the broader market. Seems like wherever you go you get S10, Ranger, Dakota lol. Always a compromise of something that needs bypassed, fixed, or modded.

    I really, really, really don't need this amp. A 5150 III 50W will cover all my needs at half the price and size.

    But... But...

    This has to be the most cleverly designed amp since the Revv Generator. If by any chance gets close to the 1500$ mark I will have a VERY hard time not buying it.

    People hate the front grill design, but I'm already thinking about stamping my band's logo in there since the Peavey logo is off-set.

    People think it's ugly? Weird. It really doesn't look that different than the 5153.

    :lol: If prices drop, I'd be excited.


    Bulby bro, how would this change your whole live setup? You're using a laptop with the DAW telling the Axe-FX when to switch patches?

    ^ a solid two seconds on the red channel, but you immediately can tell it's in the 5150 lineage in a great way. Stoked to hear Mishas demo.

    Just another video where they're afraid to really show what it can do. Is it an unfinished prototype?

    I'm beginning to see why when I tried to make up some overblown complaints for a joke, people thought my complaints were serious.

    Well he clearly says so. I'm not familiar with the differences between serial and parallel loops, but I do know everyone says that serial is better. I wonder if its something needed for the funky features of the amp.

    Misha also said that the loops are"super clean" specially designed to work with modellers, so I'd guess they're also SS instead of tube.

    Serial all signal goes through the loop, parallel the signal is split and goes through the loop and to the power section at the same time so you always have an unaffected signal. Generally unless you're running a wet / dry setup parallel loops are a pain in the nuts.

    Why do they get these people to demo this gear. This is obviously directed at metal guitarists. So the solution is to have some guy chug an E, in standard tuning (not to mention horribly out of tune), on the high gain channel?

    Furthermore, I'd be very disappointed if this had parallel loops. Watching the video, I don't even know that I believe this peavey rep. He sure didn't seem very confident and kind of talking out of his ass.


    This amp looks like it will be pretty killer. My hope is that this is a prototype and it gets a facelift. The aesthetic is just not pleasing.

    Here's one from Sweetwater. Just talking about the features, no sound clip.

    Real talk here, why does an amp have to be aesthetically pleasing If you already know how it sounds? Looks are just for marketing but we're all gonna know how it sounds.

    I don't know how it sounds based of a couple of low quality youtube clips. The specs look very appealing, I'm speculating.

    Ummm... I prefer gear that looks good? I think most people do, hence the premiums people pay for exotic/premium top guitars, cars, etc.

    I think visual design is pretty important to some extent. A Marshall Plexi, Orange, 5150, and Kemper, etc, all have very different aesthetics that may or may not speak to certain users. While the tone is the determining factor on why you would pick one over another, the amps appearance can play a significant role for others.
