What amp head for my Peavey Tour 210?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by NickInMesa, Apr 23, 2009.


  1. I bought a slightly used Peavey Tour 210 cab and I am satisfied with it, but do not like my Crate Power Block so much.

    I may keep it for a spare or just eBay it for extra mullah towards a better head.

    I am a Peavey fan, and have been looking for a T-Max, or any good tube Peavey head, but can't find one.

    What type of head would work with this baby?

    Note that I am considering buying the Peavey Tour 115 to put under eventually.

    I like to play all style and would like to gig with middle aged guys playing covers and standards (heair metal is also an option).

    I also would like to be able to use a modeller like a Line 6 pod (bean or rack) and keep my options open (a bunch of pedals could work).

    A non-Peavey head is also fine of course.

    Oh and I am an returning bassist, been picking up gear as I go, saving money and adding on every month.

    Thanks, all!

    LMII's sound great with this cab, I've used a GK700RB with fantastic results.:)
     
  3. LMII is Little Mark II by Mark, right?

    Thanks!

    Correct! You're welcome.
     
  5. And what modeller would work well with these heads?
     
  6. depends what U R going for- If U want THE AMpeg sound the VT Bass pedal will sound great thru it. I heard a guy use one the other nite- -a Crate PB- & He was just running a Behringer Bass V-AMP PRO B4 it. so I imagine almost any modelling thang'd do OK. I LIKE the VT-bass pedal myself & it's apparetly fine for use as a pre amp. But the Ol' black Kidney bean(??) the Line 6 bass pod would be good too I imagine- & give LOTSA options! I've actually still got my standard Behr.Bass V-amp (which is a copy of the POD) & it sounds darn good & is still workin fine after 4 yrs- admittedly I only use it now & then, but I used to use it fairly reg. & gig w/ it. It's got good sounds in it.... but I'd hesitate to reg. gig w/ one- I'd get the 'pro' model or POD for a more robust design.

    I was actually noodling with some stuff at my favorite local shop a couple of weeks back and was surprised to see a used Little Mark II there that had just been traded in. Had to see what it could do and I also love 2x10's, so I plugged it into the used Peavey Tour 210 that was sitting around. I was using my own bass and that gave me something of a reference, too.

    Wow! Sounded great! Rich, warm, bold, vivid, smooth... Make the effort to find one and try it with your cab if you can.

    It was also a rather light 'n portable pair of components and if I can eventually spare some dough, I might seriously try and get these for myself. I use a pair of SWR Wkmn's 2x10's which aren't exotic, but they deliver a good meat and potatoes amount of sound for me. The Peaveys are lighter and they'll also run with more power - I have a 1,400 watt power amp - so given their very reasonable price, I think it's time for a "Pepsi Challenge" with these cabs. Going lighter may actually make me sound bigger!

    I see a used Tour 210 in my area., so I was wondering about it, but there's a Peavey employee here who made a comment that implied the the cheaper 210TVX was better, although heavier. Has anyone compared them?

    I'm going for a cheaper combo setup in any case.
     
  9. The Tour was $200 after I talked it down from $300. Not bad compared to $400 new.

    If I had found a TVX for that same price or around I would have got that.

    Is the Line 6 Pod Pro also good for basses?

    Thanks!
