Peavey introduces mid-priced, 600-watt Headliner bass amp
(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-01-19)
Mississippi-based Peavey Electronics first introduced its line of bass amps in the early 1970s, when Ampeg and Acoustic were kings of the bottom end. Sine then, Acoustic has disappeared and reappeared, but Peavey has remained in the game with updated, good-sounding amps and cabinets. The Peavey Headliner is the company's latest entry in the mid-powered, mid-priced bass head market.
The 600-watt Headliner has a seven-band graphic EQ that can be along with the low and high shelving tone controls, or it can be bypassed. A built-in optical Compressor with level control and bypass keeps bass sounds tight, while a Crunch control adds a vintage tube sound that distorts only the high frequencies.
