Incredibly rare in the U.K. Peavey Max 800 watt amp. 

Flightcase with front and back lids, bi amp or full range 800 watt min 4 ohm load. Pre and post fx loops, cross over, 8 band hi/low eq, DI, line outs.

Unbelievably loud amp. Unbelievably solid. This is no light weight in either power or physical weight. 

This is 110v but comes with a hi power 240/100 converter. imageproxy.php?img=&key=4b3806f48250f55a

Love this. Is there any way it can be internally modified to accept UK voltage?

I’m sure it wouldn’t be too much of an issue as the amp is based on the CS 800 power amp which had 240 clout transformers in.

Thanks it is a beast. It’s a very flexible amp, with the pre and post input gain you can go from clean to growly tone and the eq being 8 band gives tons of flexibility. It almost has a valves sound to it if you drive the pre.

I had to google it because I've never seen one of these before. Where they all built into flight cases like that?

WOW that's amazing. I bought my Peavey Mk4 in early 80's but i've never seen one of them before. Looks the biz.

Pretty sure the technology from that era would allow a fairly simple transformer change out to 230V or possibly the existing one has tap change already on it. For a global company like Peavey that would make a lot of sense and they were the amps to have back in the 80's.

Yes all of the Max 800s were flightcased

Funny you should say that. The guy who I’ve been speaking to used to be Marshall’s  R&D tech and he said exactly the same. He’s going to look at it next week. Either way the step down transformer works a treat.

If anyone’s interested I’m playing Cambridge Rock Festival on the 29th July so could take it with me and meet up anywhere between Newcastle and Cambridge. 

Thanks
