The Ultra 112 Three Channel Tube Amp.....Peavey's Redemption.

Jun 19, 2004
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Three channels of dependable tube performance with a great sound at an affordable price.

Cons:The effects loop is NOT footswitchable. This is my only, only gripe.

The Bottom Line: Why pay twice the amount for a Marshall or Fender when this amp is also american made and can stand right with them. How did Peavey do it?


A "stand alone" amp. A far cry from Peavey's "Triumph" tube amp. "Clean" channel is nothing less than beatiful; crystal clear and can be overdriven...but why bother; there are still two more channels. The "Crunch" channel has all the overdrive anyone could ever want or need. Now we get into the "Ultra" channel. The "Ultra" channel has so much overdriven tube distortion that it "stands alone" against any amp in it's class...regardless of the manufacturer. When you turn up the master volume, to get the tubes cookin, and adjust the gain and volume you can go anywhere and play anything...classic rock...hard rock...death metal. The 3 button footswitch allows you to easily switch between the three channels, and the reverb, which is also impressive, to get the desired level of distortion for any sound. The bright switch, active on the clean channel only, allows you to get that twangy country sound. Channels two and three share the equalization controls ie; bottom, body, edge, while the clean channel's equalization ie; low, mid, high are fully independent. The Ultra 112 also features an output jack for external speaker cabs and yes...this amp can easily power a 4x12 cab loaded with Celestions...this combination is unmatchable. An effects loop is also included as is switchable 4, 8, and 16 ohm impedence. 2 6L6 output tubes and 4 12ax7 preamp tubes make this amp produce 60 Watts into 1 12 inch Sheffield speaker. High and Low gain input jacks for your guitar, as well as a three position resonance switch, further enhance this awsome amp. Suggested retail price was around $700.00 I bought mine very slightly used for $400.00
