How I Did It: Hartley Peavey of Peavey Electronics

How Hartley Peavey built his company.


I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night
The night

Eventually, he gave me an old electric guitar, but I needed an amp. My dad said, "When you learn to play, then I'll think about it." Just like any other kid, I wanted it now. So I built this big old amplifier from surplus parts. It wasn't very good, but it worked. That's how I got started. I've always enjoyed building things. I used to win science fairs and model-airplane contests. I wasn't a genius, but I was good with my hands.

I was a lousy musician, but I managed to get into some bands. The first group I got into would play fraternity parties for $50 and all the beer we could drink. When my band mates needed an amp or a PA system, I would build it. After I built all their gear, they sat me down and told me I was out of the band.

When putting new tubes in you have to play them for about 10hrs.

Sweet! I love Deans, used to have a Cadillac liked it better than a Les Paul any day cheers.gif


I have an Ibanez roadstar that was made in the Japanese Fender factory so the feel is like a 70's Strat.
Dropped a double humbucker in the bridge poition so I could get rid of the single coil hum and get nifty Pantera squeals and pinch harmonics.
