NAMM 2010: Peavey Introduces Headliner Bass Amps

Peavey Headliner Bass Amp Head
Great deals on musical instruments

Peavey proudly introduces the Headliner? Series, a new rack-mountable bass amplifier head in the Peavey Tour? Series that brings massive power and innovative tone features to demanding bass players, alongside three new enclosures.

The Peavey Headliner is a 600-watt bass amplifier head that puts an incredible range of features at players? fingertips.

The amp features a seven-band graphic EQ spaced at optimized frequencies, with each slider providing 15 dB of cut and boost, to provide comprehensive tone shaping at precise frequency bands.

Players can use the graphic EQ in conjunction with the low and high shelving-type tone controls, or bypass the graphic EQ entirely.

A built-in optical Compressor with level control and bypass allows players to add the right amount of compression to the mix, while the Crunch feature adds a vintage tube effect that distorts only the high frequencies, preserving the all-important fat low end.

The amp also features Bright and Contour switches, effects loop, master volume and headphone out.

The Compressor and Crunch features are footswitch selectable.

The Headliner features a built-in XLR direct interface that players can use to route the signal to the house sound system or recording device, and an active/passive pickup switch that compensates for hot inputs.

Peavey?s exclusive DDT? speaker protection circuitry senses the onset of clipping and responds with slight compression that allows the amp to retain the tone, headroom and dynamics (bypass switch included).

The Peavey Headliner bass enclosure line launches with the Headliner 410, Headliner 210 and Headliner 115, a trio of cabinets engineered with superior components, high power handling capabilities, intense low-end response and clarity that make them the perfect companions to any bass amplifier rig.

The Headliner 410 and Headliner 210 are internally braced enclosures loaded with specially voiced 10? ceramic-magnet loudspeakers.

The Headliner 115 is a vented enclosure featuring a single 15? Peavey Sheffield woofer.

All three cabinets are rated at 8 ohms and includetwo 1/4? input jacks and one NL4 for pin receptacle.

Engineered for rigorous road duty, Peavey Headliner Series enclosures are covered in durable black carpet with heavy-duty steel corners and a 16 gauge perforated metal grille that protects against load-in/load-out abuse.
