Any solid top Yamaha... around $400. Spend another $100 to have it set up right and you're in business.I play drums. But I watch a lot of These things. This one is great. What’s a 1/2 way decent acoustic guitar to start with? Used ok ?
affordable... hah..... $1,499Martin's come out w/something new, cool and affordable.
What’s your basis for comparison, sir?affordable... hah..... $1,499
yes, affordable compared to other martins...What’s your basis for comparison, sir?
that's one loud amp...Steve Lukather answering his neighbor's 7am leaf blower ... via Joe Bonamassa who seems to approve.
Epic lyrics at the end!
Depends on how much it costs to fix it, and how much you like it's basic sound (or range of sounds).I scored this amp (free) and it probably has a minor ele issue.
I've read it is a good little amp. Is it going to be worth it to get someone to fix it?

there's nothing special about the peavy's ... if there is an issue, it's usually a bad solder joint or broken solder line on the circuit board.. the one thing the the peavy solid state amps do well is "loud" about the best thing you can do with it is get a amp emulator pedal to get the tone you want and use it as a power amp.Depends on how much it costs to fix it, and how much you like it's basic sound (or range of sounds).
I've had a couple of Peavey amps (not one of this model though) along with working with Peavey P.A. gear. It's generally robust but not particularly good sounding. To my ear, they are best suited for rock-n-roll or heavy metal, or something that really doesn't call for purity or clarity of tone. Your jazz / folk / classical friends will not be impressed...........
OTOH if you wanna play loud as fuck, this should do it.
One of these, not all beat up, and working perfectly, should set you back about $130. I used to go amp-hunting in the music and pawn shops, and saw all kinds of stuff but rarely anything really great for low bucks. I had a Peavey Deuce (head) that was great, but I ended up plugging it into Marshall speakers.
This was back in the 1970s, so if such things had been invented I would not have heard of them yet anyway.there's nothing special about the peavy's ... if there is an issue, it's usually a bad solder joint or broken solder line on the circuit board.. the one thing the the peavy solid state amps do well is "loud" about the best thing you can do with it is get a amp emulator pedal to get the tone you want and use it as a power amp.
wow they go up to 12, must be really loud..get one of these: and you'll live happily ever after.
i have a bluebird from them, and had a Max, for guitar. still regret I sold it... these amps are so dynamically responsive that it really means you have to focus on how you play. but if you want to know how to use volume from your fingers, this amp does it all.
the little 5 watt silvertone is a little beat up.. I picked up a little 20wt silvertone by sammick for cabinet parts... it's got a little 6" speaker, but this little fucker rocks for a solid state and loud, can't imagine the sound on some of those beasts they're playing (btw in the video the upper right corner in the back of the room there's a sound level meter watch some of the numbers it hits.. )This is a great video!
That two rock is absolutely insane...
I had a 72 marshall bluesbreaker that was beautiful but no pre amp so too loud to get the good tone.
