    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.
  2. The complaints about the fan have been common. But so has the love for the tone.

  3. The fan alarmed me at first, but it has not been audible in live situations, and no one has ever mentioned it at a gig. In the bedroom, yes; practically speaking, it is a nonfactor in live venues where I have used it.
  4. Nothing wrong with fans in the bedroom. I guess when they applaud it's a bit distracting.

    It's a heavy breather. Wouldn't kick it out of bed though.
