Peavey Headliner Packs Power & Features in a Lightweight Bass Amp

By BassPlayer ,

The Peavey Headliner, a new rack-mountable bass amplifier head with matching enclosures in the Peavey Tour Series, packs huge power and innovative tone features in a lightweight 10 lb. package.

The Peavey Headliner is a 600-watt max 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 routes the signal to a 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 included).

Designed to match the Headliner amplifier, the new Peavey Headliner 410, Headliner 210, and Headliner 115 bass enclosures are made with premium loudspeakers and components for superior tone and reliability.
