    Here it is

    Peavey MAX 112 II 1X12 200W Bass Combo Amp
  2. I can't personally speak to the most recent models but I've never heard much bad about Peavey through all the years I've been playing (since 1993). All of the Peavey products I've owned and used have been excellent build quality, decent sound, great value.

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Peavey products in general to any beginner or even pro-level player depending on their application.

    Perhaps some of the other users will have more specific info on that amp. I had a 1988 Peavey Minx for over 13 years as a practice amp that I took everywhere with me including camping outdoors. It was rock solid.

    If you like the way they sound, Peavey are a great way to go. They are stone reliable.

    had a basic 50 112 50 watts, pretty good for practicing at reasonable volumes, heavy and indestructable

    Great amp. I have one. Works great for practice and small club gigs. I even used it outside at a campground gig and it did the job. Don't let the small size fool you. It can get pretty loud. I use a ZOOM B3 as a pre-amp usually and the pair work very well together.

    I used to work for a music store that sold mostly Peavey/Fender Bass gear and I have to say always thought the fender stuff was good but the Peavey gear kills. And depending on your geographical location you could get some pretty insane customer service there at the plant in Meridian, Ms
