    Haha yes, I thought so too.

    I run an MXR 10-band EQ in the loop with its volume slider backed off a few dbs and at least then there's about 1/4" of movement that can happen between "0" and "cops" lol.

    Probably works sort of like an attenuator, yeah?

    Sort of, yes. It doesn't really affect the tone though, it just makes the volume taper more manageable. When I really have to play quietly I set the slider all the way down and at that point I can turn post gain up to around 1.5 and still have very reasonable quiet playing. It's still loud AF on 3 and up though.

    This is all peavey amps and it’s a huge design flaw. Otherwise, I love these amps.

    Again, the 5150 wasn’t DESIGNED for bedroom jamming...and finding that .000001 isn’t that hard for me...I dunno...

    Good job this year Michael at staying away from boasting about this amp being "MADE IN USA"



    0:23 Stutter Misha's Holy Grail Amp is Basically (not to get technical) an old block HEADER logo.

    4:25 price dictates the quality of a product? $1,899.00 is plenty achievable! WHA??? because $1,899.00 looks so much better than $2,000.00

    Hartley Peavey invented resonance controls huh? I thought it was Stephen Fryette who first came out with them.

    I know you all are having fun, but there are regulations regarding these things:

    https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/complying-made-usa-standard

    Assembled in USA Claims

    A product that includes foreign components may be called "Assembled in USA" without qualification when its principal assembly takes place in the U.S. and the assembly is substantial. For the "assembly" claim to be valid, the product’s last "substantial transformation" also should have occurred in the U.S. That’s why a "screwdriver" assembly in the U.S. of foreign components into a final product at the end of the manufacturing process doesn’t usually qualify for the "Assembled in USA" claim.
    Read more at the link.

    B~

    Edit: I should add that this is an important distinction because a substantial number of components used in building amps are only made in China now.

    Sweetwater is the only one with the USA sticker?
    [​IMG]

    It looks like all other Peavey's are printed on, but these are stickers? I don't think there's conspiracy, there are a number out in the wild with USA on them, but it would appear that maybe Peavey was more non-committal about this one? At least if they jumped to China they would probably have been built already. I'd guess that's where the demand has gone and I'm not sure Bulb would have much say in it. I'd think he'd stand to benefit more if the cost was lowered. At least that should be the case.
    As it stands, I wouldn't put more stock in the idea that these will always be USA made than Peavey is.

    The Chinese are capable of building quality products. I guess we will find out eventually with this amp one way or another.

    1:20 is probably the highlight.
