Joking, i agree with you.
Ask Bugera? Or Fender
what amp has fender copied?
EVH = FMIC, iirc
EVH is made by fender. fender didnt copy anything
Iirc Leo made his first amps directly from a Western Electric manual, of course he tweaked them from the generic little amps into amps especially for the electric guitar......and made them bigger.
I sold a lot of peavey amps in my younger days, and not once, ever, did I hear anyone make one sound anything like the Skynard tones. Nor have I heard anything even similar to a dumble. Boggle.
I had joined a Skynyrd Tribute some time ago as a favor to a buddy of mine and so tried to find a Mace at a decent price and couldn't. Found a mint condish Heritage 130 combo for 100 bucks and snagged it. I bought it just to get close as I could to the Skynyrd sound but even though the band didnt work out, I fell in love with that amp and played it a lot. I dont think I have ever owned a more diverse amp in my life. The eq options were unbelievable and if you took the time to dial it in it sounded great and blew my 73 SF Twin out of the water actually. I miss that amp sometimes. I gave it to my nephew who was starting a band and the guitarist didnt have anything loud enough. I really regret that because the kid that I gave it to beat the crap out of it and sold it to one of his buddies and I lost track of it. I want one for my new upcoming studio so I'm going to quest for one soon.
Randy Rhoads used a Peavy with Quiet Riot. Saw it with my own eyes. Twice.
Dumble copied Peavey about as much as Eric Johnson copied Lil' Wayne. Peavey is great in their price range - unlike Lil' Wayne - and - unlike Lil' Wayne - deserves huge respect. Dumble users I've heard do have some lower mids boosted or maybe that's what a Dumble does; that could be one familiar element. But not the dense clotted cream midrange of Mr. Saturday Night Special.
Peavey. The Mississippi Marshall
Peavey Penta and other amps to me are unique creations by Peavey. Their build quality is amazing. They all have a tone. Different from another. Later called ‘Peavey’. They give you a sound to work with. Love the fact they are around, affordable. If anyone steals your lady or drink just throw the amp, pick it up and jam further where you left off..
Here's my Peavey Classic VT:
I bought it second hand back in 1985 - the shop took my Lead 12 in part exchange, oh how I wished I had kept hold of that amp! I had to order the footswitch from a local music shop, it took forever for it to come over from America. Although it is a hybrid (S/S pre-amp and tube power amp), it's a great sounding amp. Once the tubes are warmed up, it takes on a really warm tone. The VTX which came after this had a push pull pot which allowed you to stop the sweep of the phaser to access more sounds.
I really like my, "Underated", Peavey Classic 100....!
Hmm cool. Thanks for the link I may have to consider it. Kinda sucks no foot switch cos they are hard to find. Yep it's the 130 (4 power tubes) The 65 had 2. I also noticed someone already took the mesh filter off of the Scorpion speakers which when I did that on mine the tone improved about 40%
You can get one here. I bought one from him for my MTS3200 and it works.
ive never seen one of those. cool looking.
The Penta looks like a really interesting amp. Sharp looking too. 140 watts is A LOT! Wish I could find one to try. They're a good buy on eBay.
