These vintage-styled, all-tube amps feature custom-voiced, US-made speakers, distinctive Blue Rhino Hide tolex and most importantly, the stunning atmospheric quality of the mid 60s Supro reverb amps.</p> <p>1650RT Royal Reverb: This 2x10" vintage reissue with Reverb and Tremolo is the heavy hitter of the bunch with headroom to spare and a huge, punchy tone. The Royal Reverb's stout 6L6 output stage can be configured for Class A or Class AB power at 35, 45 or 60 watts with selectable 5U4 tube or solid state rectifier modes. Street price on the Royal Reverb is $1499 USD.</p> <p><strong>1648RT Saturn Reverb</strong>: This 1x12" future-retro combo with Reverb and Tremolo is both lightweight and easily coaxed into raucous tube overdrive. The Saturn Reverb shares the same 6973 based, Class-A power plant as the top selling Supro Dual-Tone amplifier, but a slightly lower power rating of 15-watts due to its use of a vintage-correct 5U4 tube rectifier. Street price on the Saturn Reverb is $1399 USD. </p> <p><strong>1622RT Tremo-Verb</strong>: This 1x10" combo with Reverb and Tremolo is the ultimate compact vintage tone machine. Small and lightweight enough to carry around town, the Tremo-verb reissue uses 6973 power tubes to push 25-watts of pure vintage American Class-A tone. Despite its small size and single 10" speaker, this modern incarnation of the Tremo-verb is easily loud enough to keep up with a drummer and be clearly heard in a club setting. Street price on the Tremo-verb is $1299 USD.</p> <p>Adrian Belew and members of Snarky Puppy will join Supro president David Koltai at 3:30 pm on Friday at Booth 5218 to make a special announcement from the NAMM show floor.

With matching enclosures, the Headliner 1000 packs huge power and innovative tone features in a lightweight 10-pound package.</p> <p>The Peavey Headliner 1000 features a seven-band graphic EQ spaced at optimized frequencies, with each slider offering 15 dB of cut and boost to provide comprehensive tone shaping frequencies optimized for bass guitar. </p> <p>Players can use the graphic EQ in conjunction with the low and high shelving-type tone controls or bypass the graphic EQ entirely.</p> <p>A built-in optical compressor with level control and bypass allows players to add just the right amount of compression to the mix. The Crunch feature adds a vintage tube effect that distorts only the high frequencies, preserving the all-important fat low end. The amp also features Bright and Contour switches, an effects loop, master volume and headphone out. The Compressor and Crunch features are footswitch selectable.</p> <p>The Headliner 1000 features a built-in XLR direct interface that routes the signal to the house sound system or recording device, and an active/passive pickup switch that compensates for active instrument inputs. Peavey’s exclusive DDT speaker protection circuitry senses the onset of clipping and responds with slight limiting that allows the amp to retain the tone, headroom and dynamics (bypass included).</p> <p>Designed to complement the Headliner 1000 amplifier, the Peavey Headliner 410, Headliner 210, Headliner 115, and Headliner 112 bass enclosures are made with premium loudspeakers and components for superior punch, tone and reliability.</p> <p>Headliner 1000 features:</p> <p>● 1,000 Watts RMS (1,500 Watts peak power)<br /> ● Seven-band graphic EQ<br /> ● High and low EQ controls<br /> ● Pre-shape contour switch<br /> ● Bright switch<br /> ● Active/passive pickup switch<br /> ● Footswitchable optical compressor<br /> ● Footswitchable crunch<br /> ● Effects loop<br /> ● Master volume<br /> ● Headphone output<br /> ● Exclusive DDT speaker protection<br /> ● XLR direct interface<br /> ● Combination twist-lock and 1⁄4" external speaker jacks<br /> ● 1 1/2 rack space<br /> ● Dimensions (HxWxD): 2.813” x 17.375” x 12.5”<br /> ● Weight: 10 lbs</p> <p>For more information, visit <a href="http://peavey.com/">peavey.com.</a></p> <p><strong>For more NAMM Show coverage, visit <a href="http://www.guitarworld.com/tags/namm-2015">GuitarWorld.com's official NAMM 2015 section,</a> get updates on <a href="https://www.facebook.com/GuitarWorld">Facebook</a> and photos and more on <a href="https://twitter.com/GuitarWorld">Twitter</a> and <a href="http://instagram.com/guitarworldmagazine">Instagram.</a> It's like you're at the show!</strong></p> <p><img src="/files/imce-images/Headliner_1000_front.jpg" width="620" height="131" alt="Headliner_1000_front.jpg" /></p> http://www.guitarworld.com/namm-2015-peavey-unveils-headliner-1000-bass-head#comments NAMM 2015 Peavey Peavey Electronics Amps Bass Guitars News Gear Wed, 21 Jan 2015 10:37:59 +0000 Guitar World Staff http://www.guitarworld.com/article/23320
