I ordered a minimax this weekend when I thought my head was dying. Happily my old head just needed a tube job. But I auditioned the Peavey out of respect and curiosity. Holy creep I love this Peavey head. I'll have to test it out a bit, but I think I might be using this a lot. Question- is the fan this loud on everybody else's minimax? It's really really loud! I can't use this on orchestra or theater gigs. And why doesn't every guitar center have these in stock? These are priced so low, everybody can buy one as a backup amp.
