Both channels include a separate, footswitchable gain boost, while the Crunch channel also has a 12-way Punch selector that adjusts the low-end attack of the amplifier a handy feature that helps match the head to various playing styles at different levels of gain.

The master section widens the range of possibilities with two footswitchable master volumes, so players can set one as a default and use the second as a solo boost and a Presence control that boosts the extreme high frequencies, giving the amp extra cut.

On the rear panel, the built-in Peavey MSDI microphone-simulated XLR direct interface eliminates the need for miking by allowing users to send the amp's signal directly to a recording device or mixing console.

Additional controls include an active effects loop with send and return level control, an impedance selector and a half-power switch, allowing you to rock the Butcher in either 50-watt or 100-watt mode.

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The head seems to be made well. It is very heavy and seems to have a great build. The transformers are large and that says something. If I know Peavey its made to last and its made here in the U.S.A. With a great warranty.
Reliability
How has it stood up over time?
Only owned it for a few days so time will tell. Im sure its road worthy, its a Peavey man.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
I have been playing for 25 years. Ive owned a little of every thing out there. As of now I own a Mesa Triple Rectifier and I truly like this amp better then my Mesa and it cost much less. I have fell in love so much with this amp that I own two of them. I run them into two EVH 2x12's and I plan on buying two more EVH 2x12s in the near future.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Im not happy with the distortion right of the head, but im never happy with any amp in that way. I push it with with a fuzz box and The tone is just about every thing ive lusted after and its quite. This is the amp that ends all amp for me. Its loose, punchy has a lot of low end, but not boomy. It goes from a dark midrange type sound(think slayer)to bright to deep. I can get Mustaines live tone almost perfect and get other tones also. I don't play clean, cleans, it does not do cleans that well but its works great for a break-up type clean. This amp sounds a lot like a JCM800 and to me it blows most marshals away. Think a hot rodded marshall 800 and Its not fizzy in anyway even with the ruby tubes thats in it. If you like the tone of a marshall JCM800 but don't want to buy a vintage one and in most cases have to change the caps and output transformers then you need this amp. Its new, road worthy has a great warranty and it sounds like an 800 and its made in the U.S.A buy it! H#ll Buy 2.
