Peavey has a technology called the transtube technology. Basically what it does is emulate the sound of a real tube amp output. This gives the tone a little bit more beef and punch, which is the main component that is missing from solid state amps. I am not sure when Peavey came up with this feature, but it has helped out the sound of their amps since inception.

For a decent practice amp this one isn't that bad for the money. It has two channels with independent EQing controls and different boosts and voicing switches. This sin not a stage amp nor an amp that you would record with. However, this is a nice little amp for those needing to practice and don't want to bust out a huge stack at home.

SOUNDS

The sound is solid state so it will sound nasally and sterile but not that you are necessarily looking for world class tone in this amp. I like all Peavey's with a humbucker style pickup in the guitar of choice. The clean channel isn't to bad and sounds pretty decent. I actually like solid state clean tones sometimes better than tube cleans.

The distortion channel have a nice grind for high gain purposes and a fatter sound then you would come to expect from a solid state amplifier. The distortion is very reminiscent of a 5150 and pretty much falls in line with the overall sound of the Peavey distortion amps.

OVERALL OPINION

For the money this is a nice amp for those needing to get started playing the electric guitar or those needing a sweet practice amp and don't want to break the bank. This amp has been revised and the newer model is out with some added features like more inputs and better speaker in the cabinet. So the used market is the only way to go with this amp nowadays.

I would recommend playing this first to see if Peavey solid state voicing is up your alley. These are different then say a Fender, Marshall, or Mesa Boogie. These amps will fit a metal tone better than a lot of amps in my opinion. The have this particular voicing that suits the high gain metal guys quite well.
