"The best head Peavey has ever made"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This amplifier is amazing for metal players. The inclusion of a very-effective noise gate makes this head completely perfect for live and recording situations. I have always used the Boss NS2 in front of all my amps, but the noise gate in this head works easily as well. If you have quick stop/start songs, this thing will track.The distortion channel on this head is the 5150/6505, so you will get the legendary 5150/6505 sound. The clean channel is a TON better than the 5150/6505, however. The cleans are creamy and not brittle at all. You will really enjoy all channels on this amp, as the cleans blow the 5150/6505 away.There are two effects loops that work independently, or in concert. If you use a lot of effects, this head is destined to be your favorite. I am not a big effects user, so it doesn't mean a lot to me, but the loops are clean, independent, and controllable via the foot switch.I can say, without hesitation, that this head is the best Peavey has ever made. Full stop.

The Peavey Invective 120 is the best sounding high gain amp I have EVER played...and after 22 years I've tried many. A big thanks to Misha Mansoor and Peavey as well as zZounds. The lineage is apparent in this amp. What else is apparent is the time and energy Misha and Peavey put into refining this product. The lead channel...oh the lead channel. Downright sinister. Modern aggression that is completely unrivaled. The Invective puts all other high gain amps in their place. It's simply meaner, more modern and has more harmonic content and responsiveness through the entire frequency range than other amps. Lead and Rhythm channels sit excellently in even the most dense mix. Bear in mind im hitting my favorite parts of this amp...it can so much more than metal. And the clean channel is absolutely beautiful. Lots of clarity and fatness. Two things that can often be hard to achieve on a clean channel. The gate...perfection. The boosts (technically there are 3 different kinds)...perfection. And with the dual effects loops and 9v power on the back panel as well as the a foot switch that really does do it all. The Invective is the all in one solution...its so beautifully engineered. Plug your effects in the loop(s). Done deal. And it's midi controlled. So streamlined. And the best part...the Invective sound is MASSIVE. This is the new benchmark in high gain. Period.

"Good Head"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Nothing really to complain about except the tone knob on the boost section does not do much, Its not made in the USA like the cabinet, and it’s pretty much hella money. But it does look really good, I would say the quality of parts and materials is second to none, it’s definitely a keeper!
