    Just my 2 Cents.

    Never been a fan of the old Peavey bass amps like the Mark III Series. Always found them honky and hard to control low mids. Very confusing to operate too.


    There is a lot of Peavey stuff that I've been very impressed with over 35 years of playing. Their power amps have always been ultra reliable in my experience and always honest with their output rating.

    My Main big show rig is a bi-amped system as below.

    Ampeg SVP-Pro Preamp

    - EV Active crossover

    -- Tops = PEAVEY DPC 750
    |- TL 806 cab
    -- EV 12" 300w 8 Ohms EVM-12L Black Label (Zakk Wylde)

    -- Bottom = PEAVEY DPC 1000
    |- TL 15 cab
    -- EV 15" 1000w 8 Ohms EVX-115

    The two PEAVEY DPC amps have done hundreds of shows and never missed a beat. They've been comparatively small and light, powerful and utterly reliable.

    In another rig I run a PEAVEY 4 x 10" Headliner Cab, sometimes coupled with a Trace Elliot 4 x 10".
    Driven by either a Hartke LH 500 or an SWR Interstellar Overdrive preamp into a PEAVEY DPC 1000.

    In days gone by I've used 15" and 12" PEAVEY Black Widow speakers and liked them a lot. (but not as much as EV's)

    Never blow a speaker.

    To be honest, if any of the PEAVEY stuff that I run fell apart on me I'd be very surprised and replace it straight away.

    Just a warning, I've had nothing but problems with Peavey
    equipment. Always shorting out, blowing speakers, and all
    other kinds of problems. I would not recommend any sort of
    Peavey equipment to no one. I've been playing for over 10
    years, and still have not seen any improvement on the quality
    of their equipment. The only thing descent about their equipment
    is their 5150 series stuff. The other stuff though is poorly
    constructed and WILL eventually fall apart on you.

    Take it how you want to,
    but in my honest opinion, Peavey Equipment Sucks!.
