Peavey Electronics® is going all in for one legendary afternoon of meet-and-greets at the 2020 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA. At least eight artists are scheduled to appear at Peavey’s booth #201A on Saturday, Jan. 18, starting at 2 p.m. Although these esteemed artists represent different genres, styles, and influences, they all turn to Peavey for gear that can stand the test of time and the challenges of the road.
Here are some of the Peavey artists who will be appearing:
David Sanchez is the front man & rhythm guitarist for American thrash metal band Havok from Denver, CO. David has an affinity for the Peavey Triple XXX® II all-tube guitar amp, which helped further define the tone of modern high gain metal. His other Peavey go-tos include the Peavey 6505® Plus, Peavey 6534® Plus and Peavey 6505® 412 cabinets outfitted with Celestion Vintage 30 speakers.
Chase Becker is the guitarist for the thrash metal band Warbringer as well as the extreme metal band Exmortus, both from California. He plugs into the Peavey 6505® Plus high gain guitar amp, known for its raw tone, relentless power, and road-proven reliability.
Mike Leon is the bassist of world music influenced heavy metal band Soulfly. He relies on Peavey’s MA-810 8×10 bass cabinet, and the MiniMEGA™ 1000-Watt mini bass head. The combination of this gear provides him incredibly full and rich bass tones all around the globe.
Hemlock is a heavy metal band from Las Vegas. Bassist/lead vocalist Chad Smith was known to use the Peavey Tour™ 700 Series bass amp head. While on the road in 2016, he unboxed the lightweight Peavey MiniMEGA™ 1000 Watt bass amplifier and introduced the new addition to fans on social media. He has used it ever since.
Each of these talented artists has countless stories to share and many helpful insights for selecting the best Peavey amps, cabinets, instruments, and more. Be sure to stop by Peavey’s booth #201A in the Anaheim Convention Center on Saturday, Jan. 18 at 2 p.m. to ask questions and take photos.
