Peavey Backstage - One of the Best Sounding Mini-amps Around

The Peavey Backstage boasts the lowest price of any Peavey amplifier and includes features such as high and low EQ controls, a 6.5" speaker, switchable TransTube overdrive, a tape/CD input for jamming along to your favorite songs, and a headphone output for doing so quietly.

Guitar Player reviewer Barry Cleveland raves about the tone and value of the Backstage in his March 2004 hands-on product review. "This is easily one of the best-sounding mini amps I've ever heard," he writes. "It delivers a great assortment of tube-like tones and offers excellent dynamic response, all in a pint-sized package and for a very modest price."

The key is Peavey's exclusive TransTube technology, which emulates the sound of tube amplifiers without the hassle or cost of dealing with unpredictable tubes. The TransTube preamp tailors the gain level for any amount of drive, from clean to crunch to scream, using a patented approach to emulating 12AX7 tubes and their ability to create even, harmonic distortion. It also mimics the push back response of real tube circuitry, which is essential to emulating tube dynamics, distortion, and chime.

Peavey Backstage Features:
  • 10 watts
  • 6.5" custom-designed speaker
  • TransTube preamp with 2 switchable channels
  • Volume and overdrive controls
  • 2-band EQ
  • Tape/CD input for practice
  • Headphone jack

Just what I wanted

It's not often you order something and get to say was just what I wanted. I needed an amp to practice, had to have good sound, place for headphones. Yeah. It's got that. Great prices, super fast delivery. whats not to like? Thanks!

Perfect practice amp

I actually bought this to drive a talk box onstage, but I really enjoy playing through it at home. Only feature it's missing is a speaker-out jack, which I had to add in order to use it to drive the talk box. Overall, typical Peavey excellence.

I love it

I love this little thing! Got it at a pawn shop not knowing what it was for $40. I use it in my living room mainly but I don't see why you couldn't use it for recording or mike it into a PA or mixer. The tube technology is really nice giving it a smooth and powerful overdrive. Plenty loud. I thought it was a tube amp because when you turn it off it takes a while to go down.
