Five Guitar Amps in One Head!
The Peavey Penta™ is a single-channel tube amplifier with five totally different personalities, courtesy of its five selectable EQ/gain voicings.
The Penta amplifier combines four matched EL34 tubes with four 12AX7 tubes and features ceramic tube sockets, custom transformers, ultra-high quality components and 140 watts into 16, 8, or 4 ohms. A product of extensive tube amplifier engineering, the Penta is a completely straightforward, classic guitar amp. Correction: five guitar amps.
Using 100% analog Pentatone™ circuitry, this uniquely Peavey amplifier gives the guitar-playing world its take on five classic gain voicings on a single amp channel. These sounds are identified by corresponding icons and are accessible by a rotary knob. No fancy footswitches allowed, and no shimmering effects included - the Penta is for true plug & play guitar fanatics.
The Penta's "Star" icon reveals a classic British plexi voicing, while the "Bull" icon produces a modified British voicing with tons of added gain and a tighter low end. The "Tree" icon lays on a thicker British voicing with a loose attack and slightly more gain, while the "Mudflap Girl" setting is a super-high gain voicing with a more responsive EQ and power amp section-think Triple XXX®. The "Cactus" setting is, simply put, fat and clean.Peavey Penta Guitar Head Features:
