: Hey mom bout me a new amp for x-mas..its a peavy basic 112. what do you guys know about it. and does any one know how to get loud with out it distorting horably. thax for your help-the brewmeister

Peavey combos are great! They're very reliable, and practically indestructible. Tend to be kind of heavy, though.

Your amp is 50 Watts - just about enough to play with a band, if you don't get too loud. If you turn it up and it distorts, try turning down the Pre Gain knob and turning the Master Volume up. Also - turning up the low and low mid eq will allow you to cut through more. Make sure you have the Active/Passive switch in the right position - If your bass has a battery inside, use the Active position; otherwise it's passive.
If you still need more power, adding an extension speaker will give you another 25 Watts.

Hope you found this helpful. Enjoy your new amp.

Good Luck,
