Hi,there I just bought a 2000 amp does any steeler know any thing about this amp.I've tried it out and it seems not to be what it should be.Sounds a little hollow defintly not like a rack set up. I bought it because I play in alot of small churches. That can't hold alot of equipment pls I'm debating weather to go back to my nashville 400 if I can't get the 2000 fiqure out.Please respond Thank you Larry.

I thought the same thing when I bought my 2000. Order Jeff Newmans Video on the new Peavey amps and it will explain everything for you. I wouldnt trade mine now for a new red wagon.

Larry - If you are comparing it to a rack system then I assume you probably are playing stereo. You really need to have the companion PX 300 to make this comparison. I have both and believe me the 2000/300 system holds its own when compared to my rack IMHO.

On the video, Jeff Newman explained that the Session 2000 pre-sets are for stereo, and if you use it mono, it the effects may need adjustment. I notice the difference when I use it mono. I'm not an experienced expert, but I sure like mine.

Without reservation, I think it's one of the best sounding steel guitar amps Peavey ever made, as is the new Nashville 1000.

From my experiences at steel shows and by incoming phone calls, many customers/users of the Session 2000 are intimidated by the possibilities of this amp. Granted, it is a whole new world than with an analog processor. However, the button manipulation is exactly the same as the Peavey Tubefex and Transtube Fex units. And if you have experience with the Profex II, you can operate the Session 2000.

If you have questions about any of our steel products, there is absolutely no reason why you can't pick up the phone or e-mail a message to me at "mikebrown@peavey.com". Our
"toll free" phone number in the U.S. is 1-877-732-8391. Outside the U.S., I can be reached at (601)483-5365.

There is a learning curve with any new piece of electronic gear, but anyone can learn it!

Thanks for choosing and using Peavey products.

I just cannot say enough good about the Peavey company. They stand one thousand percent behind everything they sell.

The Session 2000 with the remote control unit is IT. I never have to twist around and change settings. I push buttons and change between my favorite E9 or C6 settings, push another and I have a dobro sound, push another and I'm in a setting that's all tweaked for my fiddle. The remote display is identical to what you see on the face of the amp, so you can push the tuner button on the remote and tune up. It's all there, quick and easy.

In my 31 years of playing I have never played anything but Peavey, They are the only big time amp builder that takes care of the steel player, with the cost's of building a amp,research and develevment they arn't getting rich on the steel player.
I to would like to thank Peavey and The no pool playen Mike Brown for all they have done and will do for us the steel players of the world.
Just a quick note, If you ever get a chance to play Mike Brown in a game of pool bet a new amp, you will come home with it
All kidding aside, Mike is a very big asset to Peavey, he plays steel so understands what we are looking for, even when we don't most of the time. Thank's Mike "you the man"

Dave, with the airplanes passing within 100 foot of us and lightning, rain and thunder overhead, I couldn't get my mind into the game. HA! It was great fellowship after the convention was over the other night.

By the way, can borrow that new bar that you just had made for you?

I just found out that I should have done a lot more reading in the manual and a lot less playing around with it. I found that I had not set the globals to my preference to start with. This makes all the factory settings sound bad. I couldn't figure out why all the pro's settings sounded bad to me, when I knew they must have sounded good to them, and I ususally like their tone in person. After setting these, I found several presets to my liking. It also caused all of my user presets that I had made to sound bad, and now I have to reprogram all of them. If you have not set these globals initially, you probably won't like the sound of the amp. Do this and then see what you think. Also thanks to Mike Brown for all his patience with us.
