Hartley Peavey

Hartley Peavey was like most kids his age in Mississippi during the mid 1950s--he wanted to be a rock and roll star! In a very real way he did became a rock star, not as a performer but as a manufacturer of musical instruments–beginning with his pioneering guitar amplifier. Equal to a performer’s impact on music, Hartley created unique sounds that revolutionized ROCK AND ROLL! By providing reasonably-priced gear, he allowed a larger and different customer base to become music makers. His contributions began with the Peavey products but continued with his efforts in music education and industry organizations.
