Peavey amp dating

20-Dec-2019 05:35

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.

It also allows one to search only the MANUALS section.

Peavey has done a fantastic job at getting thousands of manuals online over the past 6 or 8 years. Your friend needs to hire his sphincter out on the freak show circuit.

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.

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 am fairly confident those speaker lines did not exist then.

Also note that the current Sheffield line available includes woofers (sometimes several) in 15, 12, 10, and 6.5" sizes. That's what they were putting in the Data Bass 1x15 combo amp back in 'the day'. That thing could destroy worlds with it's sheer volume and low-end goodness.

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.
