Peavey

Driven av ett oöverträffat arv av innovation och en total dedikation till kvalitet och tillförlitlighet, förklarar Peavey Electronics strävan efter perfektion i musik och ljud. Det är vår förenande anda. Det är bevisat. Och det fortsätter idag.

I nästan fem decennier har Peavey gått sin egen väg mot musikalisk perfektion. Peavey Electronics Corporation grundades av Hartley Peavey 1965 som enmansbutik. Peavey Electronics Corporation är idag en av världens största tillverkare och leverantörer av musikinstrument, förstärkare och professionella ljudsystem, som distribuerar mer än 2000 produkter till över 130 länder.

Hartley har sagt, “För att bli bättre, måste du vara annorlunda.” Det som gör Peavey annorlunda är ett åtagande att närma sig affärer med en unik vision, från produktdesign till distribution till att vara den största oberoende ägaren i branschen. Hans strävan har lett till mer än 180 patent och innovationer i det sätt vi hör och spelar musik.

 

Hartley Peavey är inte bara den visionära, ledande ingenjören och verkställande direktören, utan också den lynchpin som förbinder en rik historia med en ljus framtid. Och hans grundande principer om kvalitet, tillförlitlighet och innovation är fortfarande fokus för teknik och tillverkning som spänner över kontinenter och språk, tull och kulturer.

 

Peavey revolutionerade ljudindustrin 1993 med MediaMatrix, världens första digitalt konfigurerade och kontrollerade distribuerade ljudsystem. Idag är MediaMatrix det mest skalbara, flexibla och specificerade digitala ljuddistributions- och processorsystemet, med mer än 10 000 installationer över hela världen.

5150

Den kanske mest kända förstärkaren som släpptes under Peaveys namn är 5150. Resultatet av ett samarbete mellan Peavey och Eddie Van Halen. Förstärkaren släpptes 1992 och var en 120-watt tvåkanals rör-topp med en leadkanal som startade en ny våg av gitarrförstärkare i början av nittiotalet. Sedan Van Halen och Peavey delade vägar 2004, ändrades modellnamnet till Peavey 6505 och den har blivit en industristandard för moderna metallband som Chimaira, August Burns Red, All That Remains och många andra.
