Peavey Unveils Headliner 1000 Bass Head

World-renowned musical instrument and audio equipment manufacturer Peavey Electronics is proud to unveil the Headliner 1000, a new 1000 Watt rack-mountable bass amplifier head. With matching enclosures, the Headliner 1000 packs huge power and innovative tone features in a lightweight 10 lb. package.

The Peavey Headliner 1000 features a seven-band graphic EQ spaced at optimized frequencies, with each slider providing 15 dB of cut and boost to provide comprehensive tone shaping frequencies optimized for bass guitar. Players can use the graphic EQ in conjunction with the low and high shelving-type tone controls or bypass the graphic EQ entirely.

A built-in optical Compressor with level control and bypass allows players to add just the right amount of compression to the mix. The Crunch feature adds a vintage tube effect that distorts only the high frequencies, preserving the all-important fat low end. The amp also features Bright and Contour switches, an effects loop, master volume and headphone out. The Compressor and Crunch features are footswitch selectable.

The Headliner features a built-in XLR direct interface that routes the signal to the house sound system or recording device, and an active/passive pickup switch that compensates for active instrument inputs. Peaveys exclusive DDT speaker protection circuitry senses the onset of clipping and responds with slight limiting that allows the amp to retain the tone, headroom and dynamics (bypass included).

Designed to match the Headliner 1000 amplifier, the Peavey Headliner 410, Headliner 210, Headliner 115, and Headliner 1516 bass enclosures are made with premium loudspeakers and components for superior punch tone and reliability.
