Video: MICHAEL ANTHONY Talks About His New PEAVEY Signature Amp


Bassist Michael Anthony (CHICKENFOOT, VAN HALEN) spoke about his new Peavey signature bass amp to Madcap Music Review at this year’s NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, a massive music-products convention that took place January 24-27 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.

Amp details from Peavey: “The dual-channeled VB-MA is styled with a red backlit panel that features Anthony‘s chili pepper logo. The VB-MA combines four 12AX7 and two 12AT7 preamp tubes with a matched octet of EL34 tubes that give players tons of characteristic pentode tube tone with uncharacteristically tight response for an all-tube amplifier. An innovative, and tour necessary world-compatible switch-mode power supply and advanced design provide stadium levels of explosive tonality.”
