Affordably priced amplifier provides 500 Watts of powerful, rich low end in a light and compact package

Press Release:  Peavey Electronics®, an international leader in musical instrument and professional audio gear, is proud to release the new MiniMax™ bass amplifier head.

Peavey MiniMAX

Offering cutting-edge technology in a compact package that weighs less than 6 lbs, the MiniMax delivers 500 Watts of powerful, rich low end. With DDT™ speaker protection and Peavey’s exclusive psychoacoustic low end enhancement that adds bass without overburdening speakers, the MiniMAX contains an impressive set of features and is available at a price accessible to today’s working bassist.

The MiniMAX is capable of a huge array of tones and is adaptable to any live or studio setting. A 3-band EQ with Punch, Mid-shift and Bright controls provides a multitude of tone-shaping options, while the builtin chromatic tuner allows for easy tuning on the fly. In addition, the MiniMAX pre-gain control with TransTube® gain boost adds a tube-like crunch to the sound.

Featuring the rock-solid construction for which Peavey is known, the MiniMAX™ is built to withstand years of rigorous touring use. The convenient back panel of the amplifier has all the connectivity necessary to patch in effects or connect to a sound reinforcement system. Pair the MiniMAX with Peavey’s Headliner™ or PVH™ series of bass enclosures to complete a reliable, ultra-lightweight professional bass system. MiniMAX™
