Product Description

Some amplifiers are destined for glory. That's where the Peavey 3120 fits into guitar history. Following the path of destruction left by amplifiers like the Peavey 6505, the 3120 is poised to redefine metal guitar tone with its unique character and onslaught of extreme high gain, 120 watts of power and three fully independent channels of all tube tone.

Built for players who want the most intense tone shaping possible, the 3120 is a total control freak. The amp's versatile Lead and Rhythm channels feature gain and volume controls plus an active three-band EQ, while the Clean channel offers nicely rounded tones crafted by a passive three band EQ and volume control. A global master volume governs the amount of power put out by its four EL34 or 6L6GC power-amp tubes--the amp ships with EL34s but can use either--while the gain controls on the Lead and Rhythm channels adjust the amount of 12AX7 gain saturation.

The 3120 rear panel hosts a unique Peavey custom tone control feature: a three-setting damping switch that alters speaker resonance to create tight, medium and loose response, from a precise punch for rhythmic attack to a full, widely resonant sound. Also on the rear panel is a footswitchable effects loop with dedicated send and return controls and a line out with level control.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "no frills work horse"
Overall: I'll start with the bad. No reverb...would be nice for the cleans and something to sweeten the solos/leads a little bit but they make tons of pedals for this. Wish the footswitch had seperate buttons for the lead and rhythm channels but that's very minor considering the volume boost you can get through the effects loop and the rhythm channel having more than enough gain to give me the metal sound I was looking for. The good...cleans are awesome and the EQ can change it dramatically so while there are no effects it still proves very versatile which is very important to me. Rhythm channel is amazing. Once again the EQ is very sensitive. Lead channel is ok but not necessary with the amount of gain on the rhythm. Gain is very clear defined throaty crisp and sounds great. Overall its an amazing pure tube amp for the price. If you want classic OD buy pedals for the clean channel, this is definitely a ballsy amp suited for hard rock and metal.
Style of Music: Melodic death metal, black metal, thrash, rock, punk, blues, acoustic, folk.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "BR00t4L!"
Overall: I love the tightness of EL34s, so after having wanted a XXX for years, but hating the trucker girl graphics, the combination of a new, classier front panel, and stock EL34s sealed the deal! This amps blows the doors off many amps two or even three times it's price!
Style of Music: METUL.
