It may not know what it's talking about but that isn't the point ; }Peavey's site has probably thousands of products on it right now, pain-free shopping links to a web-insfrastructured dealer network that beggars description, has a backlog of probably tens of thousands of products and practically that many again in printed magazines, educative materials, and manage to get an incredible amount of that up onto the net.
They have manuals on there that predate the so-called high-end companies - thousands of them at that.
At that time the standard load was one of the Black Widow 15" models.
Peavey\'s site, like the LDLD has a SEARCH up near the top right corner.
Hi folks, I've just been re-united with an old Peavey amp that I used to own. I've used the search function on the Peavey site, but it came up "no results". I think they do about 130 watts though into lowest ohms load.
I've been told by a somewhat unreliable source, that it's over thirty years old, and that it was previously owned by the bass player of the Stiff Little Fingers. If this is as old as my colleague Cup Mc Mali says it did NOT originally come with either a Sheffield or a Scorpion.
Up came 8 or 9 results; I picked the one with "130".
This lost some of its accuracy to Cups translation.This amp is a life saver and as previously mentioned, the sound coming out of it is fantastic. Cup[QUOTE]Originally posted by greenboy:[QB]If this is as old as my colleague Cup Mc Mali says...Greenboy, I'm near sure the Stiff Little Fingers and age boast were a simple marketing device used by a "friend of a friend", to try and hurry my money along a few years ago...yes, I am that gullible (sp)! Cheers, Cup Here\'s the earliest TNT130 manual the site has, from 1983. For others who can be more helpful, I've just done a forum search (ready for flame war, yeah I should've checked that first) and I've seen, from another post, that apparently Peavey are still making this model. Wish I could be more help, but that's a big company. A friend of mine used to gig with the 75W version and it never let him down though it seemed a bit of waste of his Stingray's tone to me. Alex Peavey models over decades change even when the name stays the same (as it should be), and I don't think the Sheffield line of woofers existed 30 years ago.For the record, my sphincter is now off the market, I try to put those days behind me...thankyou very much, Tea. As I said earlier, I did do a search on the Peavey site, it came up blank And I couldn't have been more specific.I'll have a look later for any info to help date the amp!The amp has came back into my destructive hands after spending roughly a year in the local music shops window.I blew the speaker, sent it in for a touch of restoration, (I haven't taken off the front panel yet to check what sort of speaker has been fitted) bought a "better" amp (a hypochondriac Ampeg svt3 pro) and decided to sell the Peavey. My Ampeg's on the blink AGAIN so I'm back to the Peavey.I also added a decent piezo horn with a switch for a guy once - it added a subtle amount of detail without being sizzly.Teahead, I found the sphincter touring pretty easy.
