Three Peavey Electronics® Innovations Win Music Inc.’s Editor’s Choice Awards
At 2019 Summer NAMM, three Peavey Electronics® products not only made some noise, but made a strong impression with journalists who cover the industry daily. Peavey is proud to announce that its MAX® 300 bass amp combo, Trace Elliot® ELF™ Bass Combos, and LN™1263 Column Array portable PA system, were each tapped for Music Inc.’s Editor’s Choice Awards, having been recognized among the best gear at this year’s Summer NAMM show in Nashville, Tenn. The winners will be featured in Music Inc.’s Post-NAMM Report issue in September.
“We are honored to have been recognized again by the editors of Music Inc. magazine,” said Courtland Gray. “We’re proud of our team and our products, and we’re appreciative of Music Inc.’s recognition of our recent innovations.”
Peavey’s MAX® 300 is a recent addition to the MAX bass amp series. The Max 300 is the most powerful model of the series and offers a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio. One of the amp’s most innovative features is its angled baffle design, which helps direct the sound where needed. Instead of pointing the sound at the player’s ankles, the speaker is angled up to optimize both the player’s ability to hear and the amp’s overall projection.
Trace Elliot® ELF™ Combos are another award-winning innovation in Peavey’s bass amplification category. The ELF 1x8 Combo measures just 12.0” x 10.2” x 13.3” and weighs only 17 pounds, while the slightly stockier ELF 1x10 Combo measures 13.3” x 12.0” x 14.0” and weighs just 18 pounds. Both units are purpose-built to amplify the player’s skill and the tone of the instrument, while being expandable and flexible to meet the needs of the setting. The magic of the ELF Combos is in the built-in Trace Elliot ELF ultra-compact bass amplifier. Weighing just 1.6 pounds and able to fit inside a back pocket, the ELF is the most portable, gig-worthy amp the industry has ever seen.
The LN™1263 Column Array was one of the units that kicked off a year of innovation in Peavey’s pro-audio category. Positioned as the first column array designed specifically with the solo acoustic guitarist in mind, the LN 1263 offers a clean design in a low-profile package and has no visible cables in mono operation. Other helpful features include a six-channel mixer, onboard LCD screen, and remote control via Bluetooth using a custom iOS application.
Music Inc. is the better-business magazine for musical products retailers around the world. The editorial staff covered the extensive show floor at 2019 Summer NAMM show, the mid-year meeting of the National Association of Music Merchants, which took place July 18-20 at Music City Center in Nashville, Tenn. This year, more than 500 exhibitors represented more than 1,500 brands.
