This is Peavey's entry level keyboard amp which can also be used for electronic drums, drum machines and backing machines.

Most of the positive customer reviews talk about it being a good practice amp or for very small venues and most said it has good quality sound for the price.


Some people complained that it doesn't sound good with low frequency drum sounds and that it lacks the volume for playing at anything other than small venues, but that is to be expected from a 20W amp.


It's very well rated as a practice amp or as a stage monitor - if that's what you need and you want Peavey ruggedness then it's a good low cost option for you.

Although this was previously on our recommended list there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Keyboard Amps.
