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 Peavey to Unveil New 'Star Wars' Guitars at Comic-Con http://www.guitarworld.com/peavey-unveil-new-star-wars-guitars-comic-con <!--paging_filter--><p>Peavey Electronics has released a line of licensed guitars and accessories adorned with graphics based on <em>Star Wars</em>.</p> <p>The products will be unveiled at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International. </p> <p>From the company:</p> <p>“Star Wars is a giant in the world of film, TV and video games, and the same can be said of Peavey in the music industry — so this collaboration just makes sense,” says Peavey’s Tony Moscal. “I can’t wait for movie fans and musicians to see what we’ve come up with.”</p> <p>Peavey’s line of <em>Star Wars</em> products is perfect for musicians and collectors alike.

Using the VYPYR Pro’s unique architecture, the VYPYR is capable of designing a variety of signal path combinations. </p> <p>Four module bays each with their own distinct LCD can be assigned to an amplifier, effect, stompbox, or in the first position an instrument model. The modules can be assigned in any order, allowing the user the ability to create the exact rig they desire, even if they desire to run two or up to four amplifiers in parallel.</p> <p>With up to five parameters to precisely control effects, multiple delay types and advanced features such as MSDI (microphone simulated direct interface) direct output, effects loop, and MIDI control allow the professional player to create the rig of their dreams inside a single combo amplifier.</p> <p>AT-200 integration is a key part of the VYPYR Pro design. The MIDI output allows the VYPYR Pro to communicate with Peaveyʼs revolutionary AT-200 guitar in order to change presets and tunings inside the guitar with one simple VYPYR Pro button press.</p> <p>Recording is a mainstay of the VYPYR Pro design. With the most advanced USB audio system in any VYPYR, the Pro is designed from the beginning for home recording. The VYPYR Pro also features an analog speaker and microphone simulated direct out for recording.</p> <p>With more than 500 presets available and more than 100 different models of effects, reverbs, delays and amplifiers, the VYPYR Pro is the most innovative and advanced modeling amplifier on the planet.

The guitar was first introduced by the company at Winter NAMM 2012.</p> <p>The AT-200, a collaboration between Peavey and Auto-Tune pitch-correction technology creators Antares Audio Technologies, electronically self-tunes and intonates as you play. </p> <p><strong><a href="http://www.guitarworld.com/tags/namm-2013">[[ Keep up with Guitar World's NAMM 2013 coverage right here! ]]</a></strong></p> <p>The Peavey AT-200 uses Antares Auto-Tune for Guitar, a DSP technology that works behind the scenes. There's no bulky hardware weighing down the playing experience. The AT-200 looks, plays and sounds just like a regular guitar. </p> <p>The Peavey AT-200 is also the gateway to a growing collection of new Auto-Tune for Guitar features. With its built-in software upgrade capability, new features from Antares can be loaded into the AT-200 and controlled by any MIDI source, from MIDI foot switch controllers to iPad or iPhone devices running dedicated Auto-Tune control software. </p> <p>"We knew that our Auto-Tune had the power to change the sound of guitars, creating sonority and clarity," said Dr. Andy Hildebrand, founder of Antares Audio Technologies.
