Product Description

The Tour(tm) series features class A/B power amplifiers with patented Smart Rail(tm) and DDT(tm) technologies. This technology gives these amps massive dynamic power in a lightweight package, without introducing any switching distortion or delay. Each amp features DC protection, an efficient parallel cooling system and a two-speed cooling fan. But that's not all. These amps contain a Kosmos B Subharmonic Generator which allows the user to synthesize a note one full octave below the note you are playing.

Customer Reviews
3 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The equipment is fine but customer service A+++++"
Sound: The amp is quiet which is a refreshing quality amongst other various amps I have played thru. The 9 band eq is good and I like the contour control because I tend to like to notch the mids out of my sound. I think the sound of the amp will be very compatible with my style but of course we shall see in a few weeks Feature: right now having the amp for such a short time I would say the pre and post gains are very useful as well as the contour shaping. I think the Kosmos feature will take some time to make a real evaluation on this feature. It might go down as a gimmick but we will see. Ease of Use: The amp is pretty self explanatory. Very easy to use, pretty much speaks for itself Quality: This is a long term question but it appears to be well made and I dont expect any issues with durability. The amp is solid and the speakers cabs as well. I kind of wish the cabs came with covers, even if they were just inexpensive ones. I like the heavy speak on, speaker connect cables Value: If you were to shop others amps you would know the the price was right Manufacturer Support: This is the 1st time buying from ZZounds but to be very honest, I am pleasently surprised. There were a few issues with my order but there was a solid form of communication. I was always kept in touch and that was very pleasing to me as a customer. I received 3 seperate emails, keeping me in contact and letting me know what was happening. You dont need to know what the issues were. But know everything was handled and I would not think twice about buying from ZZounds again The Wow Factor: The amp and the cabinets are very eye appealing. I would have no problem putting this gear on a stage. Really at the end of the day its not what it looks like it what it sounds like and I think this is going to go over well with my band Overall: To tell you the truth I was somewhat skeptical about buying Peavey gear. But I was in a bind so I decided to give it a shot. I havent used it with the band yet but from initial test run I think its gonna sound pretty solid. I mean everything works well. I think the Kosmos feature might be a little bit of a gimmick but we will see over the next few weeks. I play a Conklin 5 string and it seems to handle the Low B quite well. But time will be the determining factor here
Style of Music: Rock, Christian Rock.... Hey one thing on rating the sound I only rated it 3 stars. That is only because i need much more time t

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
