Really? This is good tone?
I went for this based on the reviews, but I was quite under-whelmed... It seems like every few years I make the same mistake of buying an amp with a modeling type of device... To be honest, I initially bought it to use mostly as an acoustic amp, but when I saw it did not have a mic input, I realized it would not work well for that application. That was my foolish oversight, but I figured I'd try it out since it was already in the mail. To me, every [electric guitar] "amp" model I tried on this thing just sounded digital, boring, and lifeless... Maybe it does sound better with the larger speaker/models, but I really didn't like the sound of this 1x8 model at all. To be fair, I am used to 100+ watt tube amps and alnico speakers, but still... Yuck! Also, I did not even bother to try this thing out with a bass or acoustic. I figured if I couldn't use an electric guitar though it, it wasn't worth keeping. This might be okay as a practice amp for a kid, but the sound did not seem even as nice as my little old Roland Micro Cube, and it only has a 5" speaker!!! Also, as others have mentioned, the tuner is terrible, and not really very accurate. I do love my other Peavey stuff, but unfortunately, its time to take the shine off all these 5 star reviews... Sorry Peavey!
