Even though it was the company’s first NAMM appearance, they had seven fully
featured pedals to show off. Included was the company’s Chorus, based on the
Roland CE1 but much more guitar friendly (smaller and 9V compatible), and
their Phaser, which is based off an old MXR Script 90 pedal and features Level
and Depth controls. Every pedal sounded impressively deep and expansive.
Peavey 2084V6 Head
Peavey is poised to get into the custom amplifier business within the next
couple of months. One example of these handmade, point-to-point amplifiers
is the 2084V6 head, which features both EL84s and 6V6s in a diminutive frame;
players will be able to select between the two via the rear panel. Featuring 20
watts, a selectable tube or solid-state rectifier and custom colored tolex, these
amps look to be worth the wait.
