Peavey's new five-pound MiniMax head pumps 400 watts into 4 ohms, with 3-band EQ, Dl, ground lift, tuner with speaker and Dl mute, two twist-lock combo /" outputs, effect loop, and active and passive inputs, plus punch, mid-shift, and bright controls and TransTube gain boost. The eight-pound MiniMega ups the ante by adding a gain control with a crunch button, builtin compressor with defeat switch, and a circuit capable of putting out 1,000 watts. Besides front-facing controls, a 60-degree monitoring angle for better clarity, all-metal chassis, and front-panel backlighting, Ampeg's new BA combos-the BA-108 1x8, BA-110 1x10, BA112 1x12, BA-115 1x15, and BA-210 2x10-all feature the Bass Scrambler overdrive circuit with separate drive and blend controls and on/off controls. All BA combos feature 3-band EQ, master volume, Va" stereo auxiliary input, and Va" stereo output.
