Peavey Electronics, one of the industry's most progressive musical instrument and audio equipment manufacturers, is proud announce the immediate availability of the David Ellefson ReValver Artist bundle.

Megadeth bassist David Ellefson redefined the role of bass guitar in heavy metal. With the release of the all-new David Ellefson ReValver™ Artist bundle, Ellefson now helps redefine the role of bass guitar in Peavey’s revolutionary ReValver 4 amp modeling software.

"When Peavey approached me about introducing bass amp models to ReValver and developing a signature bundle, the thing that excited me the most was the opportunity to model my whole rig from the instrument, to the amp, to the cab," said Ellefson. "While I've always been aware of the depth at which Peavey models amplifiers, I think their ACT technology, which they use to model instruments, is pretty amazing. The results I've heard in the modeling process are really exciting. I hope this bundle will help players find their sound like I did. But mostly, I hope it makes them excited about playing."

The bundle features the "Hangar18" bass amp and cabinets, modeled after the head and cabs Ellefson has played to sold-out audiences all over the world. Peavey has also leveraged its ground-breaking ACT™ (Audio Cloning Technology) process to capture instrument models of the bass guitars most associated with Ellefson.

To round out the bundle, Ellefson has personally created a bank of presets that recreate the sought-after signature sounds from throughout his career.

Bundle includes:
Hangar18 Bass Amplifier, Hanger18 Drive 410 Bass Cab, Hangar18 XL Bass Cab, CE-Bass Chorus Pedal, Grinder Bass Overdrive Pedal, C-Thrasher ACT Bass Guitar, BC-Bird ACT Bass Guitar, Peavey Zodiac Bass Guitar, Graphic Equalizer Effect, and a bank of signature David Ellefson presets.

Megadeth's David Ellefson Releases Dawn Patrol Chorus Pedal

“As a bass player, chorus is one of my go-to effects live," Ellefson said. "[It's] an ace weapon in my arsenal and, in many regards, [it has] helped me transition my signature tone from studio to live on classic songs like 'Dawn Patrol.' So the idea of developing a great chorus pedal was really a no-brainer."
