Hear Peavey's new iPhone amp modelling app put through its paces by TG's reviews editor Stuart Williams and check out the full review in Total Guitar issue 208 (on sale now).

Peavey is the latest guitar brand to join the likes of PRS, AmpliTube and Gibson in developing iPhone applications for six-stringers. Unlike some of its rivals though, Peavey has teamed up with a dedicated music software developer Agile Partners.

The first clip uses the Colonel 900 (a JCM 900 clone) amp model on the drive channel with a Peavey ValveKing cab and the Work Horse 57 mic model (SM57). Stu then used the on-board noise-gate, into the Octopus Octave Pedal model. Hear it below.

The second example also uses the Colonel 900 amp model, but this time into a Colonel 1x12 cab emulation. Once again it was fed through a noise-gate and then into the Elevenizer distortion pedal model (a Tubescreamer clone). Hear it below.

Listen to Stuart's recordings below and read the review in Total Guitar issue 208 (on sale 29 October - 25 November).

I'm a freelance member of the MusicRadar team, specialising in drum news, interviews and reviews. I formerly edited Rhythm and Total Guitar here in the UK and have been playing drums for more than 25 years (my arms are very tired). When I'm not working on the site, I can be found on my electronic kit at home, or gigging and depping in function bands and the odd original project.
