1 Dave_K 1 year ago Not the sort of thing I'd normally look at. But we went to see a band in one our local pubs and one of their guitar players was using a Peavey Pacer (I'd never heard of them) while his colleague was through a DRRI. I didn't really think one sounded any better or worse than the other actually. Talking to the Peavey guy at the end of the show, he said he'd recently had a knee operation and so carrying around his usual box (a tweed Bassman) was out of the question — hence the 45W solid state Pacer. All he'd done was swop out the stock speaker for a Vintage 30.Out of curiosity (and helped by several glasses of Guinness) I Googled 'Peavey Pacer' and, lo and behold, one popped up on Ebay — just half an hour away and with only a few hours to go. So I pushed the button. I'm collecting it on Wednesday. It was not expensive and looks to be in virtually unmarked condition, which I know won't make it sound any better. Anyway, I have the choice of an Eminence Wizard or Celestion G12 to replace the stock speaker.Peavey amps of this period do seem to have a tank-like build quality about them, so I'm hoping for the best with this one. If I'm not convinced by the sound of it, I'll pair it up with a tube head and use it as a 1x12 speaker cab with an emergency amp built in. And I'll remove that 'orrible logo.
