Sound — 9
I use a Gibson Les Paul Studio with it. The amp is great for metal, punk, and almost any kind of rock. The clean channel sounds great at all volumes. The only problem it the amp is always a little noisy. Solos sound a little messy. The distorted channel doesnt get much louder after 6, and starts sounding worse after about 4, that's my biggest problem with it. The distortion is very brutal on the high gain channel.

Overall Impression — 8
It is great for metal, punk, or any kind of rock. The only thing I don't really like is it doesnt sound very good at high volumes on the distorted channel. If it were lost, I would probly get something eles, because this isn't an amazing amp, just great for your money. I love the reverb, it sounds great for solos, even though the noisy amp messes that up a little.

Reliability & Durability — 10
I've never had a problem with it and I've had it for a year. It's taken a beating too, since I have carried it around lots of places and hit it on things. I would use it at a gig without a backup, again, only at small gigs.

The amp is pretty versatile. It's got low, mid, and high EQ setting. It has a clean and a distorted channel, and both channels have "modern, vintage, and high gain (only on distorted channel)" switches. The the vintage gives you more of crunchy sound, the high gain is great for metal, and the modern is good for punk, rock, and almost anything eles. It's 40 watts of SS, and it is plenty loud for playing over drums in a band. It would work for small gigs, but nothing very big. It has a reverb feature, which really doesnt change much until its up to 10. It's also got a headphone jack, and a remote switch for the reverb and channel switching.

    I bought the Peavey Bandit 112 which has the exact same controls as the envoy, except it's an 8o watt amp instead of a 40 watt. I love the Bandit but I'm getting the Envoy as well because I need something small and easy to transport for practicing. Excellent amps all around! WAY TO GO PEAVEY!!!

    Yes 2 people can play at the same time but then the 2 inputs will be low gain .
