Peavey Custom Shop Amplifiers Review
Base MSRP with standard options: Masterpiece 50 - $2399.99, Sensation 20 - $1699.99, Studio Special - $999.99
These are the coolest Peaveys you’ve ever seen. For 2009, the company’s Custom Shop is expanding with hand-built, custom-made amps based on three all-new, hand-wired models. Cosmetics and components can be customized from pre-selected options or specified on a per-project basis.
The 50-watt Masterpiece is a twochannel, all-tube amp in head or combo configurations. The Clean channel has volume, treble, middle and bass controls plus a bright switch, while the Overdrive channel uses the Clean channel and adds two stages of gain to achieve a smooth, musical tone that ranges from slight to thick overdrive. Gain trim, gain and gain level controls add more even tone shaping.
The 20-watt Sensation is available as a head or combo and has three 12AX7 preamp and two EL84 output tubes. Standard features include pre gain, treble, middle, bass and post (master volume) controls, with optional reverb.
Ideal for recording studios and small rooms, the 1.5-watt Peavey Studio Special allows players to achieve “cranked” amp tones at a very manageable volume level. The straight-forward, single channel layout includes volume, treble, middle and bass controls plus a Fat switch to boost the midrange, with two 12AX7 preamp tubes and one 12AU7 tube configured in Class AB for the power section.
