The Peavey Headliner 1000 features a seven-band graphic EQ spaced at optimized frequencies, with each slider providing 15 dB of cut and boost to provide comprehensive tone shaping frequencies optimized for bass guitar. Players can use the graphic EQ in conjunction with the low and high shelving-type tone controls or bypass the graphic EQ entirely.
At Winter NAMM
2014, Anaheim, Peavey Electronics unveiled the Headliner1000, a 1000 Watt rack-mountable bass amplifier head. With matching enclosures, the Headliner 1000 packs high power and numerous tone features in a lightweight 10 lb. (4.5kg) package.
A built-in optical Compressor offers level control and bypass. The Crunch feature adds a vintage tube effect that distorts
only the high frequencies. The amp also features Bright and Contour switches, an effects loop, master volume and headphone out. The Compressor and Crunch features are footswitch selectable.
The Headliner provides a built-in XLR direct interface that routes the signal to the house sound system or recording device, and an active/passive pickup switch that compensates for active instrument inputs. Peavey’s DDT speaker protection circuitry senses the onset of clipping and responds with slight limiting that allows the amp to retain the tone, headroom and
dynamics (bypass included).
The amplifier has a combination twist-lock and ¼” external speaker jacks. Designed to match the Headliner 1000 amplifier, the Peavey Headliner 410, Headliner 210, Headliner 115, and Headliner 1516 bass enclosures are made with premium loudspeakers and components.
