Peavey has announced the Peavey Invective.MH, Misha Mansoor’s second signature Peavey amp. It’s a smaller version of the Invective.120, a 20-watt head, and is equipped with EL84 power tubes shaped by three 12AX7 preamp tubes.
Despite weighing just 7.5kg, this mini amp can easily take on small- to medium-sized venues. It even has an attenuator switch which toggles between three power options – 20 watts, five watts and one watt – to suit a variety of needs.
The amp features a clean and a lead channel. The former can be tweaked via an adaptive two-band EQ, while the latter can be adjusted via a three-band EQ, a Pre Gain knob, and a Post Gain knob. Additionally, by connecting footswitches to the lead channel, you can easily toggle its Tight voicing, or any combination of its Gate and Boost functions. Adding to these controls are Master Resonance and Master Presence knobs.
The Invective.MH also comes with a bias adjustment pot, an independently footswitchable buffered effects loop, MIDI compatibility, and a TSI (Tube Status Indication) circuit that diagnoses power tubes issues.
In terms of I/O, this amp doesn’t stray far from other Peavey Mini Heads. It has a Microphone Simulated Direct Interface output with XLR and ground lift switch, speaker-simulated USB and more.
