The MUSICIAN is not unique in having two channels, but is unique, by featuring complete patching facilities which allow any combination of the two channels to be used in series of parallel for incredible sustain, overload dynamics, and harmonic control. With this new “Automix” feature used in conjunction with. our exclusive “automixer footswitch”, almost any guitar sound can be obtained.

The master section of the Musician contains “controls for master gain and reverb. The master gain is used for obtaining overdrive and sustain at low volume levels and for controlling response and noise in result of one of the most comprehensive and thorough research programs ever attempted by Peavey Electronics. Many new circuits and ideas are used throughout this system. The new 200 watt RMS amplifier couples the brute force of Eight high energy power transistors to a massive heat- sink for fantastic power and durability.

The preamplifier section has every needed control function to produce unlimited dynamics, tonal variation, and almost any special effect. The exclusive distortion control allows the Musician to duplicate the natural distortion ofan overdriven Valve amp at all volume levels. This distortion control blends master harmonics into the signal which and “effects” channels and is also activated through the automixer footswitch which is provided at no extra charge.
