    Can't wait. I have the Max112II combo and love it. I am getting a second one for a "poor mans, budget" 400w 2x12 setup. This should do me until these get on the market. Glad peavey took the max combo head and ramped it up watts wise. I checked out the other discussions about Fender and the possible demise of Genz Benz & the GB users are not happy so hopefully with this and the MiniMega peavey will be well represented in the near future

    We're going to try to have the Mini Max shipping in the spring. We are planning on this summer for a couple other new items.

    Anyone know the frequencies for the mid shift? It's switchable between two points, right?

    This thing has an effects loop, right? Will I be able to use that to bypass the preamp? Will we also be able to totally bypass that whole pschoacoustic bass thing?

    I think one of the other threads said street price on this would be $399. Not bad, but I think I would spend the extra $100 to get the MiniMega 1000. No chicken head knobs on that one, though... ;)

    Default is 600Hz (modern). Mid-shift switch pushed in, 250Hz (vintage).

    Yes, yes, and yes.

    Street is $299.

    Looks like this will be a cool little amp. 400 watts would be plenty of power for what I do and easy to schlep. Simple EQ setup - I like that!

    This is the major flaw in the MiniMega. Luckily, it appears to be the only flaw, but it does make all the difference....

    Some of you may have seen my thread on the Peavy Max combo amps. After seeing this amp, it makes the decision that much harder. My first choice was a separate head and cab. Not sure how much the cabs will be priced at but with the amp being $299 it definitely remains in my budget. Can't wait until these come out. If only it didn't have those darn chicken feet knobs. :D

    I wish 'psycho-acoustics' was written in a bigger... no, HUGE font.
    You know, just to mess with the audience :)
