MAX® 250 250-Watt Bass Amp Combo

The Peavey MAX Series is designed for superior tone, performance and reliability in portable bass amplification, with Peavey's DDT speaker protection and exclusive tone enhancements.

What is your opinion of this product?

I have recently jammed with a few bands now that Covid is over.The thing they say every time is wow! your amp sounds great,nice bottom end.I have been looking for a combo bass amp that can thunder out Motown Jamerson style old school playing.Man this is it.I havn't heard anything this clear and earth shattering since I had my Peavey Mark 4 amp head,and 15 inch Black widow cab back in the 80's.This Peavey Combo amp has proved itself to me.The EQ settings allow you to sound any way you need to for any gig situation.The new 15 inch speaker is as good as the 80's black widow in my oppinion.Its lighter weight than my old set up,and has the headphone and aux input jack to boot.I can practice to numerous songs by myself at night and not disturbe anyone.I'm an oldschool player,and would buy another max 250 combo in a heart beat.This amp will not dissapoint you Thank You Peavey You keep on proving your self to me.

This amp slaps!

What is your opinion of this product?

I play 5 string bass and needed something to power my darkglass pedals. I was considering a few different routes including poweramps and FRFR but I went with this because of the price and simplicity. I had anticipated on playing through the FX loop so when I got this amp and plugged my Darkglass pedals through the FX loop and initially I wasn’t super impressed with my sound. Once I plugged into the input, however, my opinion changed. My tone is now killer. All of the features on the amp are amazing and give the bass different tones. With this and a Darkglass pedal you can get pretty much any bass tone you’ll ever need. I opted for the 15” because I play in drop Ab for one of my tunings. This amp has a crushing low end and a bright switch if you want more highs. I’m a guitar player but I’ve been hooked to bass after getting this amp. A nice bonus is that it’s extremely lightweight. I LOVE this amp. When I crank it, my house says “shiver me timbers”. This is exactly what I wanted and more for under $500. There aren’t a lot of video reviews as it’s newer, but if you’re considering this amp among other brands, I highly implore you to buy this and take it home for a day. I promise it won’t be a one-night-stand. You won’t regret it.
