New Peaveys take bass to the MAX

Peavey has released details of its new MAX bass amp range, comprising four models delivering 100, 150 and 250 Watt output versions with various speaker configurations.

One of Peavey’s key ideas in the MAX series is the use of angled baffle, which allows players to direct the sound at their ears and not at their feet. ‘While the low end is omni-directional, the transient is directional, meaning players can hear themselves clearly without having to tilt their amp back. Sophisticated sound is combined with best-in-class power-to-weight ratio, making Peavey’s MAX series a smart choice’.

Features of the new Peavey MAX bass amp models are as follows:

The MAX 100 has a 10-inch woofer and delivers 100 watts. The unit measures 15.5’’ wide by 11.75’’ high by 17.5’’ deep and weighs 24 lbs.

The MAX 150 has a 12-inch woofer and delivers 150 watts. The unit measures 16.25’’ wide by 12.25’’ high by 18.5’’ deep and weighs 30 lbs

The MAX 250 has a 15-inch woofer with high-end tweeter and delivers 250 watts. The unit measures 18.25’’ wide by 13.5’’ high by 21’’ deep and weighs 45 lbs.

The MAX 208 has two 8-inch woofers and delivers 150 watts. The unit measures 10’’ wide by 20’’ high by 10’’ deep and is the standout of the bunch, the maker says. It only weighs just 33 lbs, enabling players to make a single trip from the car by carrying the cabinet in one hand and their bass in the other.

The built-in ‘Kosmos-C bass’ enhancement feature adds harmonics and subharmonics to maximise tone. In addition, the series is built with an advanced version of Peavey’s DDT speaker protection technology, which limits clips and is ideal for slapping and other loud playing scenarios.

No UK prices or delivery dates were available at the launch but they will be coming to the UK, Barnes & Mullins confirmed.
