DAVID ELLEFSON SIGNATURE BASS (retail: $899.00.00)


Designed with veteran metal bassist David Ellefson, Peavey Zodiac DE bass guitars are solid rock basses featuring both staggered single coil and straight single coil pickups. "I wanted to create a bass that incorporates the best sound qualities of a traditional instrument but also has cutting-edge features designed for modern players," says Ellefson. "My technique and playing style have always demanded more from a bass guitar to really capture the power and depth of my music. The Zodiac DE brings those elements together in one powerhouse instrument." In the celebrated Peavey tradition, Zodiac basses combine sought-after features with the road-worthy durability required by serious rock players. Like other basses in the Zodiac Series, the David Ellefson signature model—named Scorpio after Ellefson's sign in the astrological zodiac—is built using a solid alder body with sculpted front and back contours and equipped with an articulating bridge with machined saddles. The Scorpio is also outfitted to his specs, including custom Seymour Duncan(R) pickups, a gloss-black finish and a mirrored pickguard. "Rock n' roll is about constant reinvention and taking things to new extremes, and the Zodiac DE reflects my passion for that lifestyle," adds Ellefson. "I like the bass to be heard as well as felt through the music, and after all, what good is a fancy bass if you can't hear it?" Zodiac DE Scorpio basses feature one staggered single coil and one straight single coil pickup, with two master volume controls and one master tone control for shaping the Zodiac sound. Other features include an 8" radius maple neck so players can work into the 21-fret rosewood fingerboard in comfort, plus all-chrome hardware and butterfly tuners.

PEAVEY MAX 112 COMBO BASS AMP (Retail Value $259.99)


The Peavey MAX(R) 112 combo bass amp is ready for gigs and practices. If you're tired of lugging around heavy gear to small gigs and rehearsals try plugging in to the MAX(R) 112. Peavey's exclusive HyperVent(TM) system is designed to push bass to the front of the cabinet so the full bass output of the speaker is realized. With 35 Watts of power and backed with Peavey's own DDT(TM) speaker protection circuitry, you're free to play all night long through the heavy-duty 12 inch woofer. Another exclusive is Peavey's TransTube(R) circuitry that lets you define your sound by choosing between three different amp voicings MAX, Modern or Vintage at the flip of a switch. There's even a 3 band semi parametric EQ on board. We wrapped it up by adding a headphone out and CD / line input for added flexibility.
