Peavey Tour Bass Amps

The Peavey Tour Series 700 and 450 bass amplifier heads, are a pair of high-powered workhorses featuring highly specialized EQ, built-in octave synth/divider, direct out with phantom power backup and patented SmartRail technology.

Tour Series bass amplifier heads offer extensive tone shaping through a nine-band graphic equalization configured so its frequency bands are spaced on “musical” frequencies. Peavey engineers adjusted the EQ centers so users can bring better definition to the low frequencies with ease. These amps also include a Peavey-exclusive analog octave synth/divider with level control and footswitchable bypass that adds an extra note one octave lower than the original note, creating textures and enriching the bottom end.

In addition, the XLR-equipped direct out allows traditional patching to a front-of-house or studio mixer, but features fail safe phantom power backup that will send a flat signal through the house P.A. or studio console.
