I just bought one of these today used. Found it unexpectedly from an ad in a local shop and called the owner, bought it, thought I'd review it here. The one I got is in excellent condition, so reviewing based on that.

This amp has 2 inputs: 'INPUT" and "CD". In truth either one can be used as guitar in, with different results. The INPUT line has two options: Clean and Lead. Clean produces clear sound straight from the instrument, with a single volume / distortion control. Toward the higher end it provides a clean, pleasant distortion, but is loud and clean even at mid-level. Switch to "Lead" and there are pre- and post- gain control knobs. I'm not enough of an amp guy to know what the difference is... only what sounds good as I balance them. Suffice to say it sounds good. Player preference will be purely subjective.

It has two settings, "Modern" and "Vintage". I couldn't tell much difference between the two myself, but both settings were functional on my unit (ie, they produced good, clear sound). Three standard bass, mid and treble controls. A headphone jack and power switch completes the front panel.

The CD Input allows for microphone, secondary sound source (CD or MP3 player) or guitar input.

As an 8" amp goes... this provides far better clarity of sound and volume than a 15 watt amp has right to produce. I'm very pleased with both the tone and degree of volume one can get from the unit. It's far better than my old single-input Crate amp (which didn't sound this good brand new).

At the time of this posting all the models here on Amazon are used. A search on the Peavey site produced no results, so I'm guessing it's discontinued and used is the only kind available.

This amp is fantastic! If you're on the edge of buying it or not, buy it!

Let me clear this: I own the Blazer series and not the Rage, the only difference; Blazer has reverb.

So, on this amp you have INPUT and Co Input. On the INPUT, you have two channels, clean and lead. For the clean you have a volumd knob. It doesn't get that overdriven sound when cranked up, so keep that in mind. The lead channel has two knobs, Gain and volume. For a full distorted, metal sound you can crank the gain all the way to ten, but if you're looking for thag sweet, bluesy overdrive, pull back the gain to about 6 and give it a little more volume.

And that brings me to volume. It can get loud, no doubt. But if you plan on gigging in small venues with thus amp, plan to mic it up. However, if you and a rhythm guitarist, and maybe a bassist, want to get together, this amp will cut through. Bring in drums, however, probably not, unless your drummer is willing to beat softly.

All in all, great amp!!!!
