The Peavey MAX 208 Review, Made for Performing Bassists

The Peavey MAX 208 bass combo amp delivers huge bass tone with exclusive Peavey design.

This includes unique psycho-acoustic low-end enhancement that adds bass without demanding anything extra from the speaker–a testament to Peavey’s technology-driven reliability. The EQ section includes three-band EQ, a gain boost featuring Peavey’s patented TransTube® tube emulation circuitry, and switchable presets like Contour, Mid-Shift and Bright.

With MAX, you will hear yourself loud and clear with no need to tilt your amp back; thanks to the MAX’s angled baffle design, the sound is directed right where you want it.

In this video I will walk you through some of the capabilities of this versatile 200-watt workhorse:
