80 watt bass head.
Here is some of that sound:
I had an Alphabass back in the day when they first came out. I wasn't really a fan of the grind I could get out the preamp even after I changed the tubes. But you could get a growly sort of tone if you pushed the power amp section hard. But man you needed it to be LOUD to achieve this. I miss that amp. It was well thought out.
Very nice design. Many forget that the subtle sounds it helped making made a lot of songs.
Together with something like a Eventide H8000 you essentially had a bass synthesizer.
With a phaser, chorus and q filter this amp could do a lot of things for bass sound.
The Peavey 215 has been a great bass cab. The Peavey 1820 is the Uber bass cab I would say. With 2 18 inches and two 10 inches in one silly big cabinet.
These bass heads are very nice to use together with pedals and are important to restore and use as a sound creation tool. So is yours failing? Save some cash and repair it.
Mark 4 and Century are the ones I think of for Peavey grind. Also available at pawn shops for a steal.
Peavey 3620 and Max bass head. I reckon this is the UBER Peavey bass cab.
Let's not forget the amazing Peavey preamps.
To mix grind with a clear fundamental. It is possible. Just use severall cabs and some Peavey heads.
The Peavey 3620 is part of the three kings of bass cabs. 1. The Ampeg 8x10. 2. Acoustic 408 and 3. the Peavey 3620. Wich is the king of them all. There are two other cabs... The Sunn 4x15 and the Kustom 4x15.... but we'll leave them in the dust of yesteryear.
All of these uber cabs did not have the function to deafen you. But to hug you with bass. This friendly arm that hugs you to make you dance and enjoy the evening. Like only a good bass cab can. Not only zooming but be articulate with not definition to give you the beat and all subtleties.
