Megadeth bassist to release Peavey Artist Bundle

Megadeth bassist David Ellefson has teamed up with Peavey for the David Ellefson ReValver Artist bundle.

In association with Peavey’s ReValver 4 amp modeling software, the bundle features the Hangar 18 bass amp and cabinet, modeled after the head and cabinet Ellefson uses for live shows.

Peavey has also leveraged its ground-breaking ACT(Audio Cloning Technology) process to capture instrument models of the bass guitars most associated with Ellefson.

To round out the bundle, Ellefson has personally created a bank of presets that recreate the sought-after signature sounds from throughout his career.

“When Peavey approached me about introducing bass amp models to ReValver and developing a signature bundle,” says Ellefson, “the thing that excited me the most was the opportunity to model my whole rig from the instrument, to the amp, to the cab.”

“While I’ve always been aware of the depth at which Peavey models amplifiers, I think their ACT technology, which they use to model instruments, is pretty amazing.”

“The results I’ve heard in the modeling process are really exciting. I hope this bundle will help players find their sound like I did. But mostly, I hope it makes them excited about playing.”

The David Ellefson ReValver Artist Bundle will be released this month; the ReValver 4 software is available to download now at

Ellefson recently confirmed Megadeth are moving forward with plans to hit the studio this year to record and release the follow-up to 2013’s “Super Collider”, with as-yet-to-be-announced new members in place of recently departed guitarist Chris Broderick and drummer Shawn Droverwho have formed a new band of their own.
