Peavey releases three new Ecoustic rehearsal guitar amps

If you're a singer/songwriter or even part of a small acoustic group, you may not want to drag amps and a PA system to rehearsals. Peavey feels your pain and has introduced three new Ecoustic Series guitar amplifiers designed for acoustic instruments, vocals and line-level devices such as samplers and audio players in performance or rehearsal applications.

The Ecoustic E110 runs 100 watts into a bi-amped system with a 10" full-range speaker and a high-frequency horn. Each channel operates independently, with 9-band graphic EQ on channel 1 and two-band adjustment on channel 2, a Notch Filter and Phase Inverter on channel 1 to control feedback, a footswitchable Mute/Tuner, and more. The master section includes digital reverb, chorus and delay with channel assignment and parameter adjustment, and the optional foot controller allows users to access up to eight presets plus an onboard looper.

The Ecoustic E208 and Ecoustic E20 are rated at 30 watts and 20 watts, respectively, and have a compact, lightweight, tiltback design that make them ideal for rehearsals. The Ecoustic 208 features built-in chorus and reverb, and both models include headphone outputs for quiet practicing. More specs:
