Overview

Guitarists with heavier tastes looking for their next upgrade will find a sturdy solution in the Peavey invective.120 head. With design input from Periphery's Misha Mansoor, this 120W powerhouse will help players achieve the most revered metal sounds, from woody and clean to the most extreme of high-gain tones.

A tube amp only sounds as good as what's inside, and Peavey's invective.120 delivers quality with four matched JJ6L6GC output tubes with top-loaded bias test points and adjustment. On the rear panel, players will find paralleled speaker outputs with impedance selector, an MSDI-XLR direct output with Level/Tone/Ground Lift, MIDI out/thru, and MIDI footswitch input. The included footswitch has nine presets to further help players achieve their desired tones. Two remote switchable effects loops, half-power switch, and two 9VDC/ 500mA auxiliary power jacks for effects pedals complete the rear panel.

On the front panel, players will find even more options and advanced control. The invective.120 Head has a single input with three key remote switchable channels: Clean, Crunch, and Lead. The all new clean channel is voiced to be pristine and uniquely suited to work with closed back cabs. Both the Lead and Crunch channels have independent Pre and Post Gain controls as well as shared low/mid/high EQ, in line with the revered Peavey 6505 head. They also feature a shared switchable front end boost fast attack input noise gate with a threshold for complete control over muting. The standby and power switches with blue jeweled pilot light indicate when the amp is ready. Just adjust the Master Resonance, Presence and Volume knobs, and it's ready to rock.

    Comments about Peavey Invective.120 120W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I wanted a super versatile amp that was 3 channels and had MIDI capability (building a stereo rig with Mesa TC-50). The Invective is everything I was looking for...and more.

    Clean Channel:
    The clean is slightly compressed and nice and warm. It stays clean even at maximum gain. The onboard boost is awesome. You kinda get 4 channels. The clean channel with the boost on gives a great mid gain tone. It can go from just the edge of breakup, to kind of AC/DCish to heavier crunch.

    Crunch Channel:
    Awesome crunch sounds but also has a lot of gain if you want it. It sounds great with everything at noon, but I like it with very slightly scooped mids and slightly bumped lows and highs. It doesn't do the mid gain stuff so well in my opinion, because there's so much gain on tap. With that said, it is definitely capable of very good mid gain stuff with the guitar's volume rolled off and/or the gain dialed back to around 9:00.

    Lead Channel:
    TONS of gain. I like it at 9:00-10:00. Definitely does the chugs quite nicely and although I haven't played through a 5150, I can see that's where it's lineage comes from.

    Other:
    The volume tapers very well with the post gains and master volume. You can play this at bedroom volume and still get very nice tones...but that's not really what you want to do with this is it? ;) I love the dual effects loops and the power jacks on the back of the amp. Master boost works as advertised. Also the gate is fantastic; I found I only needed it on the lead channel.

    Overall:
    This amp is awesome. I wanted something so versatile I could play anything from jazz to metal and I think this delivers. I also didn't think I'd like the look of it, but It actually looks pretty good. I have to say, Peavey definitely created a winner with the Invective.
