The Peavey Deltabass is the Rodney Dangerfield of bass heads because.... wait for it..... It Don't Get No Respect!! Yeah! Peavey!! I have a 2.5 yr. old Deltabass and it's a fantastic compact and light weight amplifier. 100w @ 8 ohms, 160w @ 4 ohms. Cosmetically is 9/10 and functionally 100%. It is my current backup amp, sitting in my basement since last October when I got my Ampeg SVT 3 Pro. It really should get used. The Deltabass is the Swiss Army knife of compact bass heads. It has comprehensive rotary EQ with parametric mid control, contour control, DI out with pre or post EQ setting, Effects loop, buffered tuner output, The unit is mechanically and electrically very quiet (no fan & no hiss or hum) and plays surprisingly loud with a 4 ohm cab. I've only used it at home and in our church's worship team so I would say that it has pretty much been babied. It may not have enough grunt to go up against your guitarist's Marshall half-stack, but will more than hold its own vs. any 40-50 watt guitar combo-amp. I only ever used it at 5/5 along with our very enthusiastic drummer and our guitarists' 40 watt Peavey Artist combo, and I was asked a few times to turn down. The Max 160 (same amp, updated faceplate) sells for $319 @ Musiciansfriend. First $140.00 USF plus shipping takes it. Figure 25 lbs. from Guelph, Ontario Canada N1H 1C5. No charge for packing.
