If you're tired of lugging around heavy gear to small gigs and rehearsals try plugging into the MAX 112. Peavey's exclusive HyperVent system is designed to push bass to the front of the cabinet so the full bass output of the speaker is realized. Its 40W of power drives a heavy-duty, custom-designed, 12" Peavey woofer to generate ample volume for small gigs and rehearsals.
Wide tonal range
Peavey's exclusive, patented TransTube circuitry gives you a choice of 2 distinct voicings--vintage and modern--for covering a wide range of sounds and music styles. A semi-parametric EQ adds further tone-shaping capability with low, mid, mid shift, and high controls.
An all-purpose amp
Perfect for small gigs, rehearsals, and with its CD input and headphone output, it's a great practice bass amp, too.

Don't be fooled by the size of the speaker and watts. This things packs a punch. Beautiful crisp sound. At first I was skeptical, but it proved me wrong. I play it at a volume level 3 just for the reason that's its freaking loud. Bottom line is ITS A PEAVEY these amps are know to last for years and years. You won't regret it and the price is unbeatable!
I was surprised how much this 40W amp can give. Good clean sound.
I wanted a bass amp that I could play at low volumes at home but also use in jam sessions or at a small venue. This amp does the trick nicely. My main bass is a Fender Jazz, and this amp was easily the best sounding of all 10 and 12 inch combos that I tried (Acoustic, Behringer, Ibanez, Fender, Line 6, etc.) Very smooth and tight sound. I tend to use the Vintage setting at home and Modern while playing with friends. I also play synths and use this amp as a keyboard amp. Sounds great with synths too.
I've had this amp for a few months now and have been very pleased with the quality and performance. I was looking for a beafy but reasonably priced practice amp when I stumbled across this one. It certainly has enough kick for rehersals or smaller gigs, and weighs just under 40 lbs. making it light enough to carry around. The vintage voicing circuit gives it a great sound for the older style of music that I play, and you gotta love a 12" speaker in a practice amp. With the performance, quality, and features of this amp, Peavey gives you a lot of bang for the buck. I would highly recommend this amp.
I've owned this amp a few months and it's great! I play in my high school jazz band and I have many times been asked to turn it down after accidentally setting it too high. It sounds great and doesn't distort except at very high levels of gain. The Modern and Vintage settings really are noticeable. I prefer the vintage for jazz and it sounds great. If you're for volume on a budget, get them.
If you are looking for a great sounding practice amp to play along with CDs, MP3s or small jam sessions with friends, consider this amp. After much research, I couldn't find a better bass amp for the money. The sound quality is great with plenty of lows and highs. Don't let the low wattage fool you, this amp can get loud for its size (note: not loud enough for serious gigs, you will need something more substantial). For jamming with your favorite tunes, or practice, this amp is awesome!
I just got this amp for my birthday and I absolutely love it. It really packs in a great sound. If you want it to go really deep, it goes REALLY DEEP. This amp is awesome.
This is an amazing amp. I've owned it for 8 months, and I have to say its amazing. It handles distortion, clean, and everything. It doesn't break sound on high end notes, and is very fluid. It doesn't crack. It's all around an amazing amp, and very worth the price.
Thank you for the opportunity of commenting on this product. I'm not an expert player. I'm actually learning to play the bass and for that I needed an amp to practice. I do not know much about amplifiers so I decided to buy the Peavey MAX 112 Bass Combo because of the brand, it looks nice, not expensive, and the free delivery. I've been enjoying it since I received it. It sounds very powerful for such a small unit. I highly recommend this product. I am entirely satisfied and happy with my new Peavey MAX 112 and there is nothing I dislike about it.
All around town great because this amp travels quite well being fairly lightweight. Minimal controls, but plenty for its purpose; you won't need anything more. Remember to tinker with the tone controls and back off the bass and treble with least amount of midrange and, voila, meaty bass tone in spades. Note that even though this amp is only rated at 35 watts, it will kick and surprise you with lots of volume. I tied it with my Gibson electric solid body guitar and that too sounds tremendous through this amp. The price is a rarely seen great value with most products being overpriced in today's marketplace.
