Peavey Max 112 200 watts bass combo

Super clean sound and very loud I like it

Versatile, lightweight, and everything I expected

The thing that surprised me about this amp was how light it was for the size. Another thing that surprised me: just how loud it could be. And it wasn't "noisy" loud, either... the sound was clean and devoid of hum, even with the gain cranked up. At 200 watts, it's a powerhouse. It's more than loud enough to carry bass over drums in practice or smaller venues without the use of a PA, and for someone like me who doesn't want to lug a head and cabinets around, it's a perfect solution. The Direct Out (XLR) is useful if you need to play a larger venue, and it even has a Ground Lift function if you get too much hum from it, though I haven't had to use that. The EQ is neat, and there's a lot of options, too. I got a wide variety of sounds from this amp before I even touched the Gain. If you're dead set on a tube amp or a big 400W, go with that, but if you're still debating it, I would recommend giving this amp a try.

Peavey MAX 112 delivers

I went from one of the very early Peavy Bass rigs with two cabs and four 15" JBLs back when, to the Peavey MAX 112 present day. I was looking to be a little put off in the huge stepdown but that did not happen. This little rig delivers as advertised and can handle the open E string with the volume cranked up. I use it for personal playing but think it would work for small to medium-size gigs. NO issues for studio work at all. The cool tuning meter is a bonus.

All I can say is Wow!

I was looking for a small light amp that would be powerful enough for gigs. I already own a Hartke 120 watt 1x12 kickback, but I wanted something with a little more power and punch. I considered and played the TC Electronic 1x15 combo, Peavey max 1x15, MarkBass 1x15 and 1x12, and this little guy. The best 2 sounding amps out of them were this and the MarkBass 1x12, and with the drastic price difference between the 2, this one came out the winner! The MarkBass is a little lighter and smaller, and sounds as good, but not better in my opinion. Built in tuner is a huge plus as well. You can't go wrong with this choice unless you are playing large outside venues most of the time. Make sure you add this one to your list to try, you won't be disappointed.

Great Amp!

Bought this for the compact size, come to fine out it sounds great too! If your looking for a small great sounding amp, you should consider this one. It has the convenience of aux. Input to pick and play, plus convenience of being small to haul around to practice. And 200 watts of power isn't bad either.
