Peavey: Audition 110

Price paid: $ 125

Purchased from: Some guy

Sound — 7
I'm using a F-100 ESP with some no-name brand pickups with it and I got to say it's not that bad. It's suits my style pretty well. I can play from Collective Soul to Lamb Of God or As I Lay Dying. It loses it's volume if you turn the bass all the way up so I have my bass on 2 and mid on 5 and high on 8. And it sounds pretty good. The clean channel isn't really distorted at all at top volume.

I play metal and rock. I've heard Peavey's are for metal so that is why I bought this one. I've been playing 2 years I think. Overall I think it's a pretty good buy for 125. If it were stolen or lost I'd get the Peavey Super 40 XXX which I really really want. I don't really love it or hate it. I wish the distortion was better but for 125 yeah.

This amp is really not a gig amp. Every now and then it'll break up and make really loud popping noises. It hasn't broken down on me yet but it does make rather strange noises when I'm playing. But that could be a lose wire in my guitar(not sure).

25 watts and 10 inch speaker. I play mostly metal and rock. It has 2 channels. It has pre and lead knobs for the distortion channel. I don't really use the distortion because it's not all that great. I know big disappointment but it's not that bad. I have a DigiTech RP50 pedal and they have better distortion than this amp. The lead isn't that bad. It's got a humming sound to it when you turn it up. It's loud enough to practice in your room but not enough for a gig. It's a solid state I think.

    I'm going to buy this amp in a couple of days... so these reviews helped... Thanks...
    I got this for nothing a few months ago ^_^ It really surprised me, as I was using a Roland Cube 30w, yet this produces a better tone through my Boss ME50. Mainly for practise though. For gigging, I just use whoevers amp happens to be there
