Congrats on getting that amp! It makes sense since you're in a metal band and like the sound of that amp delivers! smile.gif

I bet it can get loud! I wouldn't have room in my bedroom for that. I don't perform live either so I couldn't use something this big -----yet! biggrin.gif

Congrats!

Is this head metal-sounding exclusively or could you pull of some bluesy or classic rock tones as well on occasion?

It is Eddie Van Halens signature amp (or at least it was).
The Peavey has a very tight and harsh clean channel that is hard to tame and distorts easily which works great for some classic rock riffs. The crunch knob adds a bit of gain to the clean channel and it now has enough gain for any kind of Rock (Ted Nudgent uses this channel)

The Lead channel packs A LOT of gain and the overall tightness of the amp makes it great for metal and extreme soloing (Van Haalen!) but with backed down gain you can get some modern rock sounds (Black Stone Cherry).

It is not the most versatile amp in the world but it is tweakable. It CAN do blues and classic Rock but its very tight and *in your face* response is not the first choice for those genres.

Oh and here is me playing this beast live:

It's definitely made like EVH's type of amp, although there is a new EVH signature amp that really rocks, I've heard it in play and it's crazy. Have you tried it Zakk? biggrin.gif

I have played it Ivan and for my purposes the original Peavey is better.
The EVH (Fender) 5150 III is a great amp though! It has 3 independent channels with a better clean tone, a nicer crunch and a high gain channel. Overall it sounds a bit less modern and brutal compared to the Peavey but it is more versatile!

Good call smile.gif The Marshall is a very fine head, but the Peavey will let you drive it harder. Great for Metal. Good choice!
