Overview

The Peavey Solo guitar practice amplifier has 12W of power to drive an 8" Blue Marvel speaker. What sets it apart from the crowd is Peavey's TransTube preamp that gives it remarkably realistic tube amp tone and dynamic response. Peavey's exclusive, patented TransTube technology emulates the sound of tube amplifiers with the convenience and reliability of solid-state design.

The amp has a master volume control and separate lead gain control. Combined with the clean and lead channel switch, you can go from chunking rhythm to screaming lead in an instant! A three-band passive EQ allows you to further tweak your tone.

The 1/4" inch stereo tape/CD input jack allows you to jam along with your favorite recordings, and the headphone jack makes it possible to do it all without bothering the neighbors.

I play classical guitar in small venues. I believe this amp is just what I need to be heard above the general noise. The sound produced is natural.The price fit my budget and the very prompt free shipping are appreciated.

bleh...

By 

from Johns Creek, Georgia

Comments about Peavey Solo Guitar Practice Amp:

Ive owned this amp for a while and its...well... not good. The amp loooks good and it was very well put together, plus its fairly lightweight and extremely durable. But then i turn on the amp, and thats where it all goes downhill. The clean sounds alright (if you like clean with absolutely no effects), but the overdrive sounds awful! Its more of a dirt, muffled sound than actual overdrive. But thats not the worst part! Its tone makes me want to rip my ears off! If played through several other amp and this amp has without a doubt the worst tone i have ever heard! Decent beginner amp, but once you get a sense of what good tone and distortion sound like youll immediately want to get rid of it. Once i get the money for a better amp ill sell this as soon as possible, or i may just run it over with my car. Whichever comes first.

Little but,GREATTTT!

By 

from lillington NC

Comments about Peavey Solo Guitar Practice Amp:

well ive only been playin about a year, and ive been through my share of crummy amps, but once i bought this on, i just could go get another on, its only a 12 watt, but who cares, i can hear it. this is a perfect amp for a beginner like me, for when your parents arent home, turn it up a little bit and its still loud. Great beginner amp!!!

Good First Amp for the Price

By 

from Springfield, IL

Comments about Peavey Solo Guitar Practice Amp:

This was my first guitar amp, and I have to say, it got me off to a good start. It is perfect for practicing in your bedroom, which is all I can do now before I start a band. :-) It plays any type of music very well, from Lynard Skynard to Metallica. Its only effect though is its distortion, which gets kind of frustrating when you're trying to cover different bands as close as possible. Also, I don't think it can match a real tube amp, though it claims it does. If you're looking for an intermediate guitar for starting a band, I wouldn't start here. Look for something with more effects and possibly more wattage. But if your just starting to learn guitar, this guitar is a good place to start.

Great for my first amp

By 

from Tipton, IN

Comments about Peavey Solo Guitar Practice Amp:

All I could ask for is some more gain, but for the size and price of the amp, it's pretty impressive. If you're looking to buy your first amp this is not a bad choice at all.
