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 built-in 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 Peaveys Headliner or PVH series of bass enclosures to complete a reliable, ultra-lightweight professional bass system.

I have been waiting for Peavey to come out with these mini heads for a while. It was worth the wait. They definitely listened to the bass playing community when they out this one together. Has all the features you could ask for, it sounds great, and has plenty of power. I have or have had many other brands of these light weight heads, and this one has become my favorite.
Peavey MiniMAX 500W Bass Amp Head
.I am always looking for ways to lighten my load at gigs. I am very happy with this 6 pound dynamo. Tuner is handy and the sound is awesome, but the head room this little amp has is what has convinced me to use it as my primary rig from now on. You can't beat what this amp delivers for the price!
