Peavey PV 8 Reviews

4.5 stars based on 9 customer reviews

    I recently purchased this item, and have found it to be outstanding in performance. I have been podcasting for over six months using another brand mixer. This PV8 blows the old mixer away. Sturdy and compact in my home studio. You need to pick one of these babies up now.

    Great Design and Sound

    The most important things to me in a compact mixer are flexibility, ease of use (logically laid out), and sound. This little mixer delivers all of those. I like the frequency selection of the mid range, and two separate sends (fx/aux and monitor). And the returns can go straight to inputs for returns (aux return, tape in, etc) without using up a channel strip. The preamps are pristine, and are no noise issues. There are even gain LEDs on all channel strips!

    I would have like to have hi-pass switches on all the channels rather than just on the mains, and a mono out would be nice. But solid and smartly-designed mixer deserves a "blown away" rating.

    Great Mixer

    I am using this unit to submix into a Fishman acoustic amp with great success. It is perfect to add 2 vocals 1 six string guitar, 1 12 string guitar, 1 mandolin and a fiddle. Has every feature that I require and is quiet with no sound coloration other than what I want. I have used Peavey sound gear for many years and have had no problems with any of their products. For what you spend you recieve a good quality product.

    great little mixer

    Just a great little mixer. Use it as a portable set up with 2 power speakers for my keyboard, a bass guitar and 3 mics. Use the control room out for a zoom HN4 and record everything. No coloration of sound and works flawlessly. As always the Sweetwater rep Jeff Barnett was outstanding and shipped to me the next day.

    Peavey PV8 mixer stellar unit

    What great build quality--feels very sturdy and totally non-flimsy. All controls are tight and feel great; many clever features, sound quality seems very good, eq works well. Lots of flexibility for very little money. Great compact size too. I used this as a preamp for 4 mics in my studio that hang down from the ceiling right around over musicians' heads, to be able to clearly hear their comments. OK--I can hear everybody-- Yes, I CAN turn the mics off if I don't like the comments! The single master slider is very cool too. Would make a great live mixer for a small ensemble using powered speakers.

    Big Bang for Little Bucks

    I have had my PV8 for about 2 years now and I am totally pleased. Had doubts that such an inexpensive mixer could be that good but it is! Very quiet in my home studio. It is a well thought out, rugged piece of gear and I'd recommend to anyone.

    Some sound training


    Big enough for group and background music. Getting used to different dials and what they effect. On the top dial, a very small change makes a huge change in how hot the mic is.
