Peavey was founded in 1965 by Hartley Peavey, who began repairing and building amplifiers in his basement. Over time, the brand expanded its product line to include guitars, basses, and drums, among others. Peavey is known for its innovative designs, such as the T-60 guitar, which was the first guitar with a computer-controlled router. The brand also introduced the first digitally controlled mixer, the PM-1D, in 1999.

Hartley Peavey is not only the visionary, lead engineer and chief executive, but also the lynchpin that connects a rich history to a bright future. And his founding principles of quality, reliability and innovation are still the focus of engineering and manufacturing operations that span continents and languages, customs and cultures.

Peavey has been endorsed by many famous musicians, including Eddie Van Halen and Reba McEntire. In addition to its musical products, Peavey has also produced a range of products for the industrial and commercial markets.
