For some reason, I've always associated Peavey with "cheapo", I don't have any reason to back that up, it's just that all throughout my childhood, if anyone mentioned Peavey, someone else in the room would inevitably scoff. And so many sound engineers I know absolutely loath Peavey. However, in recent years, I've started noticing some genuine Peavey love, outside of pricepoints. One of my guitarist friends tells me that there's a huge love of Peaveys over in europe. And one of my engineer friends tells me that he applauds them for coming out with conceptual gear that hey know will never turn a profit, just for the heck of it. Like I hear they've just released something like a $200,000 line array. THAT'S GUTSY! When you've got a name that so many people scoff at, releasing a super high-end product like that takes some serious cajones.
