L'avis de Nida

Peavey Rage 158
Cet ampli à transistor vaut vraiment le détour. En plus, il est de la série Transtube.
Pour seulement 15 Watts, il peut vous retourner la chambre car evidemment, il est plus déstinée à un usage "maison".
1 input, 1 sortie casque, une entrée ligne (CD, K7 ...)
deux canaux:-1 : réglage du gain
-2 : réglage du pré et dupost gain
pour les deux : équaliseurs 3 bandes
Nouveauté (moi j'ai l'ancien modèle) : un switch modern/vitage. De quoi?

UTILISATION

Un ampli guitare tout ce qu'il y a de plus simple, assez neutre, et avec un panel de son saturé interressant (bon métal disto mais aussi bon Blues overdrive).
Un manuel, pour quoi faire?

SONORITÉS

Rien d'exeptionnel, mais dans ma chambre, un JCM900 ne serait pas rentré!!!
Que se soit avec une strat ou une Les Paul, ça convient à peu près, juste de quoi s'entendre jouer...
J'arrive bien à obtenir un son Métal (pas de medium et pre-gain, grave et aigü à donf), comme un son blues crunchy(tout à demi course), ou unson clair agréable(grave et aigü à 2H, medium à 10H), etc...

AVIS GLOBAL

ATTENTION : petite remarque, bien que Peavey soit une marque de très bonne qualité et d'une solidité à toute épreuve, mon Input à maintenant un faux-contact, Négligence de ma part?? Je tenais à le signaler.
C'est vrai que ça fait quand même une bonne dizaine d'année que je l'ai mais à ce prix là, je crois pas qu'il y est mieux.

Peavey Rage 158
Ampli transistor 15 Watt
canaux : clean / lead
equaliseur 3 bandes + choix moderne/vintage
haut-parleur blue marvellCitation :


UTILISATION

Utilisation tres simple, pas besoin de regarder la notice. Mais un son saturé est quasiment impossible a obtenir, a moin de pousser les 2 gains a fond, ce qui donne un volume tres elevé (pour un ampli d'appart).

SONORITÉS

Le clean est acceptable mais quand on passe a l'autre canal !!! mamamia !! C tout bonnement nul !!
Donc, si vous voulez une disto, acheter une pedale !! obligé !! (perso, je l'utilidai avec une MT-2 de Boss).

AVIS GLOBAL

Je l'ai utilisé pendant 2 ans, il est simpatique pour débuter. Bon rapport qualité/prix. Referai ce choix.

L'avis de heads on fire (contenu en anglais)"Line 6 Spider is better for the same price."

Peavey Rage 158
15W
8" Blue Marvel speaker
2 channels
3-band EQ
Tape or CD input
Modern/vintage voicing switch
15"W x 14"H x 8-3/4"D
13.9 lbs.
Small, compact, and lightweight.

UTILIZATION

This is a good little practice amp. It has no effects, like reverb, delay, or anything like that, which is a touch disappointing to a new player. One can find a used Line 6 Spider series in the 15 watt versions for the same price as a used Rage 158, and the Line 6 will do a lot more. But that isn't to say this isn't a good amp - if you find one for less than 40 bucks used, it's probably worth it. One thing I used to do as a kid was run an out from this into the power amp section of a tube amp, and it sounded really neat - I thought the tone was reminiscent of Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine. So if you do end up getting this amp, neat sounds can exist even at stage volume, if you get creative.

SOUNDS

It's a decent-sounding amp for what it is. It's no Bogner or Diezel or Trainwreck, but it's not designed to be. It gets clean, it gets dirty, and the EQ is pretty tailorable, so the sounds this can get are varied. It's a practice amp, so one probably isn't expecting to record a platinum hit with it - it's meant to use for practice, and it works for that purpose.

OVERALL OPINION

Sevens across the board. I like the amp, but again, the Line 6 Spider series is a better buy for the price range. I liked my Rage growing up, but Line 6 wasn't around then. The Rage works for practice - the external input is a nice bonus. If I was given this amp, or if it was dirt dirt cheap, I'd probably buy one and use it just for sentimental reasons, and it would still get the job done.

Peavey Rage 158
Peavey does it again with there inexpensive and fantastic sounding amplifiers. This amp is only a simple 15 watta amp with loads of options to boot. It is a solid state amp that has a clean channel, a lead channel and a simple Eq section. You also get an input, a CD player input, and a headphone jack for silent playing at your home or office.

There reason isn't anything special about this amp other than it is cheap and good enough for practicing your guitar chops. Some of the latest editions to this model had a modern and vintage voicing switch on the lead channel. This one has is but the original I don;t think had one on the front panel.

SOUNDS

The tone from the transtube is exceptional as far solid state amps go. This isn't going to sound exactly like a tube amplifier, but they get it sounding much better than most solid state amps out there on the market.

I like a Peavey amp with a good sounding Gibson Les Paul or SG guitar. I find that the match between those Gibson mentioned and the Peavey tone matches up much better than Fender guitar. Peavey's can tend to have a shrive distortion tone that needs to be tamed a bit with a good mahogany wood body guitar.

OVERALL OPINION

Peavey has since discontinued these amps and are now focusing on there Vypyr series which has now become a huge hit. They still use transtube technology in many of their current amps.

Since they no longer produce this amp the used market is the only way to go if you desire this amp. I have seen them on the classifieds for right around $70 to %100. Not a bad price for a good sounding solid state practice amp with multiple channels. I highly recommend this amp for someone needing a good silent amp for practice.

Peavey Rage 158
The Peavey Rage 158 is a fairly typical practice amplifier from Peavey's venerable line of amps. It's a 15 watt solid state amp featuring Peavey's "Transtube" technology. This is supposed to ape not only the tone and harmonics/overtones that a tube amp offers, but also that unmistakable feel that you get when playing through a true tube amp. It's got two channels, clean and drive. The layout is very simple, featuring a single volume for the clean channel and separate gain (pre) and volume (post) controls for the drive channel. Other than that, both channels share an equalization control set of bass, middle and treble controls. The only other features of note on this amp are a 1/4" headphone jack for silent practice as well as a 1/4" auxiliary input for plugging in a CD player or other external device. It features a single 8" Peavey Blue Marvel speaker to cap everything off. All in all it's a decent feature-set considering the amp's then street price of around $100.

UTILIZATION

When I first got the amplifier, I was about 6 years old and it was the first amp I got that was my own. It is very simple and easy to use, so even at that young age, I was able to dial in reasonable tones that I liked. Even up to the present day. There aren't many features to wrap your head around so that leaves room to just play guitar.

The clean channel has a nice set of tones. I've used it as a rehearsal amp for a jazz project for the last year and it works well enough for that, despite being old and only 15 SS watts. There is some pretty horrendous speaker buzz from age, so that limits me from turning the amplifier up too loudly in these settings. The drive channel is really impressive for a solid state practice amp. Its specialty seems to be a surprisingly killer 80s/90s rock tone that has lots of midrange and a really punchy attack overall.

SOUNDS

I've had this amp since new when I was 6. At that time, I was using various Squier, Yamaha, and Epiphone guitars with both single coil and humbucking pickups. At that time I was playing blues and rock music, most often on my own. On occasion I did use this amp for gigs/television appearances, and in those instances the amplifier would be mic'd.

Even today I still use this amp for rehearsals and as a beater, and though it is aged and worn it still sounds great. The Transtube system does have a great sound and though it's not going to ever replace a proper tube amp, it does sound great for what it is. I love the overdrive tones especially and find myself playing lots of 80s riffage and lead based stuff when I'm plugged into the Rage. The amp gives me a wonderful inspiration to play because it sounds good. Most practice amps don't put a smile on my face but this one does.

OVERALL OPINION

All in all I feel that this is a great amp for the young guitarist or someone who just needs a small amp to use as a beater/practice amp. I've been using mine for over ten years and it still works very well and sounds great. I've tried the newer versions of the Rage (the one with the red stripe as well as the newer 258 model) and I was not nearly as impressed with those as I was with my 2000 model Rage which the silver stripe. These amps can be picked up cheaply on the used market, so if you are looking for a small, simple, yet great sounding amp on a budget, give the Rage a try. You might be surprised...

L'avis de JackLudden (contenu en anglais)

Peavey Rage 158
This is a small solid state guitar amp. It is a 15 watt amp with an 8 inch speaker. It has a standard guitar jack and also a 1/4" input for CD/Tape. It is a 2 channel amp - a clean and a lead. There are pre and post knobs, a low, mid, and high tone control, and a master volume knob. There is also a headphones jack.

UTILIZATION

This amp is very simple to use. There are only a few controls and a simple channel switch. It's very easy to modify the sound to try to suit it to what you are playing. The manual provided is clear and easy to understand - it's not a complicated amp.

SOUNDS

This amp sounds only fair. First of all it is small, so you won't get any giant, loud sounds out of it. It is a solid state distortion on the lead channel that sounds a bit grainy and dull. The EQ section on it behaves as you'd expect, but the sound of the amp is not great to begin with. The clean channel on this amp is pretty sterile and clear, but doesn't really add anything. There are no built-in effects on this amp to sweeten the deal. If you maybe boost the low and mid depending on your guitar you can get a passable distortion sound but this is no Fender or Mesa.

OVERALL OPINION

This was my first guitar amp, I've had it for years and just decided to keep it around. It is small, so it's portable and convenient if you just want it for casual jamming. It is also pretty cheap, which is always nice. However the sound is certainly short of spectacular. Most of what comes out of this amp is pretty tame and thin sounding, there isn't a lot of depth. Also, the distortion tone doesn't change much when you vary the pre knob like you'd get from a nice tube amp, it's all pretty much the same at different volumes. You just have to mess with the EQ section. It is a good value for a beginning guitarist who just wants to be able to hear his guitar as he learns with a little bite on it. Other than that, I'd probably pass on it.
