This was my first experience with Peavey, and it isn't a good one.
14 May - Just received replacement chassis from Peavey USA. I'm happy this is a company that still stands behind its products.
If you're looking for something small and portable while still producing good sound quality, I'd totally recommend this amp.
I plugged my MP3 player into the AUX IN first to try it out. There was a slight buzz, but nothing objectionable. The output sounded OK, for a unit with a single 8" speaker.
I then plugged in my bass guitar and a horrendous buzz arose until I put two fingers on the shell of the cable plug. (Not one, but TWO, fingers to reduce the noise!) I adjusted every control on my guitar and the Vypyr, with little to no luck. Strangely, the amp-type selector produced horrendous noise on three of the high-gain settings (crunch2, metal 1 and metal2), while the others were merely annoying at low levels.
I thought it might be a problem with the AC adapter, so I removed it and inserted the four "D" batteries into the battery holder. (And that was a TIGHT FIT!). Upon powering up, I found there was less noise and hum, but they were still there at an objectionable level.
The first bass was an active (9V battery) instrument, so I switched to a passive bass. Same results.
Now I have to contact Peavey customer support and get the repair process started. I'll keep this review up to date as this progresses.
This amp rocks!

I bought this and didn't work! Took apart and a cable was unplugged! Plugged it works! It would be nice but the effects add too much noise! Something about s/n ratio says peavey! Read morePublished 4 months ago by Ruben Torres

Only had it for a couple of weeks but I like it so far. Also have the roland cube as well and I prefer this one because it has more effect features that can be used simultaneously... Read morePublished 17 months ago by captainamerica
Peavey hit a home run with this amp. By far the best battery powered amp I've played. I tried the Marshall and all of the Roland battery powered amps. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Charles Martin
