Originally, Peavey had plans to use a neodymium magnet which would have resulted in being a bit lighter than alnico type magnets and would have provided an additional 3Db. Unfortunately, neodymium (a rare earth material) is very expensive to manufacture, and it wouldn't have been cost- efficient to use given the benefit to dollar comparison. In the best interest of the player, Peavey ultimately opted for the 1501-SB instead, which is a time-proven design and has been the industry standard for many years in steel guitar amplification.
