A PUNCHY LOUD PRODUCT
By: Frits S. from Mt. Carmel, PA
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I've been buying PEAVEY gear since '74, and Hartley has "done it again", 200 generous watts are easily heard over our drummer, thanks to a high-end speaker, and a "whole lotta cabinet" (weighs about 40#).
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
High-Quality sound AND operation. Very quiet, and the 2 volume controls really "rev it up" when duty calls.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
The amp is quite much more that it appears to be in the picture, so be prepared to get more than your money's worth.
How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use?
Distortion-free sound when played clean and a generous 'Gain Knob' for intentional 'clipping' sounds.
Are the controls logically laid out?
Easy to see (and use) 'Chuicken-Head' knobs.
The 'on-board tuner' is easy to see and use on a dark stage.
How is the tone? Distortion vs clean?
Great pre-amp settings & tones..... fed into a loud output stage.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I was expecting one of those small wedge-type amps, but this mid-size monster both 'tilts back' and 'sits upright', either on the floor or atop a table.
Good For Practice an Acoustic
By: Mister Pinstripe from California
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Seems solid as a rock. Nice fit and reasonably light.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
The tonal range is unending thanks to all the buttons.
How is the tone?
It can go from warm to snap in 2 adjustments. I really like the TT for grit.
Your general opinion of this product.
Overall, for practice and acoustic gigs this amp will be fine but, don't expect it to keep up with a drummer at volume.
