One of best guitar amps you can find under $500, make this a Rockin Deal! This little powerhouse gives you the ability to choose your sound tone from vintage classic to modern and clean. You’ll be blown away by the power of the audio which makes it perfect for playing out. Peavy has “continued to refine the TransTube circuitry adding such features as our “TDynamics® control” which effectively acts like a “power regulator”... Most people ASSUME that the TDynamics control is nothing more than “master volume”... WRONG! The T-Dynamics variably engages a clipping circuit in the output stage that effectively lowers the power amp’s headroom, thus emulating a lower powered amp. When the T- Dynamics control is turned down, it is not just acting as a volume control for the amp, it actually decreas- es the available voltage swing just as a smaller/less powerful amplifier would do while retaining all the vital TransTube overload characteristics that so ef- fectively emulates a tube amp’s sound and feel.
In devising the TransTube Circuitry, Peavy engineers studied every aspect of how a tube amp works. They learned that recreating tube tone isn't merely a question of gain structure. It's about the entire component chain and how each one interacts with the others. It's about damping factor and the corresponding speaker response. It's about power amp compression. How the amp breaks up when driven hard, harmonic structure and non-linear gain stages. It's about cabinet size, bracing, wood and thickness.
You won't believe your flexibility of creating your tonal sound and ears!
