Product Description

invective® .120 Guitar Amp Head
The first high-gain amplifier to deliver pristine cleans, the Peavey invective®.120 starts with the no-compromise high-gain performance of the legendary Peavey 6505 series, then adds a level of versatility that is unprecedented in an amp within this class. Designed in collaboration with Misha Mansoor of Periphery, the invective.120 features three channels which each deliver a distinctive sonic-range, as well as a long list of controls which allow you to dial in that perfect tone. Use the included footswitch to quickly switch from one tone to the next, from the most extreme high gain metal, to a flawless classic rock tone, to a deep clean jazz tone - it's all there, and everything in-between!
A tube amp only sounds as good as what's inside, and Peavey's invective.120 delivers with four 6L6GC output tubes with top-loaded bias test points and adjustment. In order to produce the widest variety of tone, from the cleanest clean to the most extreme high gain, we incorporate 6 of the finest gain matched 12AX7 tubes. The rear panel features paralleled speaker outputs with impedance selector, an MSDI-XLR direct output with Level/Tone/Ground Lift, MIDI out/thru, and MIDI footswitch input. The included footswitch has nine presets to further help the player achieve their desired tone. Two remote switchable effects loops, half-power switch, and two 9VDC/ 500mA auxiliary power jacks for effects pedals complete the rear panel.
On the front panel, players will find even more options and advanced control. The invective.120 Head has a single input with three key remote switchable channels (Clean/Crunch/Lead), giving you a sonic palette that lets your imagination run wild. Both the Lead and Crunch channels have independent Pre and Post Gain controls as well as shared low/mid/high EQ, in line with the revered Peavey 6505 head. They also feature a shared switchable front end boost fast attack input noise gate with a threshold for complete control over muting. The standby and power switches with blue jeweled pilot light indicate when the amp is ready. Just adjust the Master Resonance, Presence and Volume knobs, and it's ready to rock.

Amazing amplifier!
Overall

What is your opinion of this product?

I had an EVH 5150iii and a Mesa recto 25 (not trying to knock those brands) but I sold both of those amplifiers to get this Peavey Invective 120 and I must say this amplifier is a beast! It covers all of the tones I use and it does it very well, it’s hands down the best amplifier I’ve ever owned other than my 6505. I’ve had it for a little over a year now, this thing has that tone and much much more the distortion character of this amplifier is amazing! It has that 5150/6505 sound also with its own character along with the awesome built in boost and noise gate features, I haven’t heard a better boost or noise gate than the one that’s built into the amplifier. I play a lot of cleans, classic rock, blues, metal this amplifier has made playing music a lot more fun for me. I gig with it, all the knobs and everything on the amplifier as well as the foot-switch feel very high quality. To have this thing setting in your jam spot it looks cool as well I can’t say enough good things but take my word for it the amplifier is amazing! Best musical purchase I ever made I highly recommend

Incredible!!

Best amp head ever played. I own other peavey heads and this one is by far the best. Sold my mesa, Friedman and Soldano. This does it all.

Subject: Ohm/Cab Set up
Discussion: What is your recommended speaker cab configuration? Im hoping to use a 2x12, what would my power rating need to be ideally? Peavey Response: The manual is linked on the product page. Three-position switch allows for appropriate selection of speaker cabinet impedance. If two enclosures of equal impedance are used, the switch should be set to half the individual value. For example, two 16 Ohm enclosures necessitate an 8 Ohm setting, while two 8 Ohm enclosures would require a 4 Ohm setting. When using the amp in HALF POWER mode, note that there is a 2:1 impedance difference which is also listed near the switch.
