Michael Anthony unveils new signature Peavey bass amp

Chickenfoot bassist Michael Anthony unveiled his new signature Peavey bass amp at the recent NAMM show in Anaheim.

The former Van Halen bassist hooked up with Madcap Music Review to discuss the project.

According to 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."

The amp features:

* Eight EL-34, Four 12AX7 and two 12AT7 tubes
* Universal power supply for worldwide compatibility
* Overdrive with blend control for blending in the overdrive with the clean channel with EQ control
* Striking red backlit panel with Michael Anthony's chili pepper logo
* Volume/Overdrive
* Low/Mid/Shift/High
* Bright switch
* Low cut switch
* Tube compressor with Level control
* Master 9-band graphic EQ with defeat switch and LED
* Master volume
