    Last week I visited family, and in so doing, I also visited an amp I gave away years ago: a Peavey Envoy 110, USA-made red stripe.

    At the time, my younger brother didn’t have an amp, so I gave it to him. I paid about $100 for it, several years ago now. It was in good condition. And it still is, except for being a bit dusty. For the past several years, he’s been doing the singer/songwriter thing, playing different acoustic/electrics through a Fishman Loudbox Mini, then a Bose L1 system, so the Envoy hasn’t gotten much use.

    But this visit, I brought with me my latest Logan Custom tele, which he hadn’t seen yet, so he brought over the Envoy to Mom’s house, and we played through it. I really enjoyed the reunion.

    Now we were playing in my 87-year-old mother’s living room, so needless to say, we didn’t crank the amp. I played it a little bit on the Lead channel, but it was hard to get levels that didn’t blow people out of the room. Oh, well, I play mostly clean most of the time anyway.

    And I really like that Clean channel, both the Vintage and Modern voicings. It’s hard to remember now for sure, but I think I prefer the Vintage voice. But both are good.

    No real revelations to share here. Just wanted to start a thread about a little Peavey Envoy love. Anybody else?

    a more recent one...

    The dad of one of the guitar kids in my school band gave me a @200 budget to find a good amp for him...

    I was at another muso/ebay friends house to mooch a few pickguard screws to finish a build, I needed some gold ones....... he said he was selling his Envoy for 150, so I grabbed it for the kid.

    It sure changed the tone of the band and improved the kids playing.... a sweet sounding amp... Dad was happy, kid was grinning... all good....:cool:

    If I were to come across a good deal on the current ("Cyclops") model, I'd probably pull the trigger. The voicings on the Channels are pretty much the same to me, in terms of what I like. But the added feature of a Speaker Simulated Direct Output I think I could use. The Boost might possibly come in handy, too. The price new ($350) isn't bad, but I think I'd look for used.

    I loved the Studio Pros and Bandits as well. I'd like to have a Bandit again, except for the weight. But if I ever find a good deal on a Studio Pro (though they're a pretty rare find) or Envoy, they would do just fine.
