    Unlike it's ancestors, the Made In USA "silver fins," the new Max series have a neutral tone. I got one as soon as they came out because I own a slew of classic Made In USA Peavey's, but I wasn't very happy with the tone of the MiniMax. I guess I like that "colored" mid-boost tone that the older Peaveys used to put out--they could cut through the loudest, densest stage mixes and stand out.

    However, that is an excellent price for a 500 watt amp. Most younger players might find the "Max tone" to their liking. Pull the trigger, it's a super deal. And support is just a phone call in Meridian Mississippi. After some thought, I may give the gear another try down the road, considering they now have a 12" cab to go with their MiniMax.

    Good luck and let us know everyone who buys one! :thumbsup:

    I got one from GC right after they lowered the price. And was still able to use a 15% coupon as well. I think my total was $261. Hard to beat for an amp that solid.

  8. $349 - $307 = $42
    The answer is 42!

    Ergo, the miniMax is the answer...

    If that were required reading/viewing for our youth, the world would be a better place.
