Peavey Honors Lynryd Skynyrd's Gary Rossington with Signature Edition Penta Amplifier

January 28, 2009

Celebrating a relationship that has thrived for more than 30 years, Peavey and Rossington teamed to create his ultimate amplifier, a 140-watt beast that is actually five amps in one. Rossington has employed a range of Peavey amplifiers over the years to obtain his signature sound, including a pair of original Peavey Mace amps that have been in constant service since the mid-1970s. The new Penta Rossington Edition is the ultimate expression of his signature style.

Combining four matched EL34 tubes with four 12AX7 tubes fitted into ceramic tube sockets, the Penta Rossington Edition uses a 100% analog design to create five individual amplifiers on a single amp channel. The exclusive Pentatone control allows players to select among five preamp settings that reconfigure the amplifier’s components into five completely different amps with their own EQ voicings and gain structures.

The Peavey Penta Rossington Edition guitar amplifier will be available from authorized Peavey retailers in Q1 2009.
