Peavey Releases Headliner 1000 Bass Amp

The Headliner is a 1000-watt head that packs power and tone into a lightweight package.

Meriden, Mississippi (February 08, 2016) -- Peavey Electronics’ Headliner 1000 is now available for purchase through dealers and distributors worldwide. The 1000-watt rack-mountable bass amplifier head packs power and tone into a lightweight 10lb. package.

With matching enclosures, the Peavey Headliner 1000 features a seven-band graphic EQ spaced at optimized frequencies, with each slider offering 15 dB of cut and boost to provide comprehensive tone shaping frequencies optimized for bass guitar. Players can use the graphic EQ in conjunction with the low and high shelving-type tone controls or bypass the graphic EQ entirely.

A built-in optical compressor with level control and bypass allows players to add just the right amount of compression to the mix. The crunch feature adds a vintage tube effect that distorts only the high frequencies, preserving the all-important fat low end. The amp also features bright and contour switches, an effects loop, master volume and headphone out. The compressor and crunch features are footswitch selectable.

The Headliner 1000 features a built-in XLR direct interface that routes the signal to the house sound system or recording device, and an active/passive pickup switch that compensates for active instrument inputs. Peavey’s exclusive DDT™ speaker protection circuitry senses the onset of clipping and responds with slight limiting that allows the amp to retain tone, headroom and dynamics (bypass included). At 1 ½ rack space, the Headliner measures at 2.813” tall, 17.375” wide, and 12.5” deep and has a combination twist-lock and 1/4” external speaker jacks.

Designed to complement the Headliner 1000 amplifier, the Peavey Headliner 410, Headliner 210, Headliner 115, and Headliner 112 bass enclosures are made with premium loudspeakers and components for superior punch, tone and reliability.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
