Overview

Offering cutting-edge technology in a compact package that weighs less than 6lb., the MiniMax delivers 500 Watts of powerful, rich low end. With DDT speaker protection and Peaveys exclusive psychoacoustic low end enhancement that adds bass without overburdening speakers, the MiniMAX contains an impressive set of features and is available at a price accessible to todays working bassist.

The MiniMAX is capable of a huge array of tones and is adaptable to any live or studio setting. A 3-band EQ with Punch, Mid-shift and Bright controls provides a multitude of tone-shaping options, while the built-in chromatic tuner allows for easy tuning on the fly. In addition, the MiniMAX pre-gain control with TransTube gain boost adds a tube-like crunch to the sound.

Featuring the rock-solid construction for which Peavey is known, the MiniMAX is built to withstand years of rigorous touring use. The convenient back panel of the amplifier has all the connectivity necessary to patch in effects or connect to a sound reinforcement system. Pair the MiniMAX with Peaveys Headliner or PVH series of bass enclosures to complete a reliable, ultra-lightweight professional bass system.

Comments about Peavey MiniMAX 500W Bass Amp Head:

After months of backorder, I received this amp yesterday. The amp is very portable, and the functionality/sound quality/features are great. However, the cooling fan is excessively loud. It's not noticeable when playing at full volume, but this amp is basically useless in a recording setting (unless going direct), playing at home by yourself, or in a smaller more intimate venue (i.e. coffee shop, acoustic show, etc). Peavey customer support did not see an issue with this since "it's not really noticeable when you're playing".

I'm still on the fence if I should keep this product since the sound quality/portability is exactly what I need, but will still use my regular SWR SM-900 rig (all 26 pounds of it) when playing smaller shows or practices.

    Small box, huge sound!

    Comments about Peavey MiniMAX 500W Bass Amp Head:

    For the money, this thing is a beast. Loud and to the point. Got a good rock tone out of it right away. The aux and headphone jack are a nice feature. Also, the effects loop was clean sounding. The drawbacks are the fan is a bit loud to the point it's distracting, and more troublesome, if you turn this thing on or off without the mute switch being engaged you will get a terrible electronic niose pushed through your speakers. Even with with the mute on you will get a bit of a squeal through your speaker when you power it on.

    Greatest thing since sliced bread and spreadable margarine. I've used the aux. in to work on some music I had forgotten and the head phones so as NOT to make my wife crazy while I practice. This was an excellent buy. Get yours today.
