Peavey amp dating
But somewhere there at Peavey I'm sure they have a dimly lit cavernous area like Indiana Jones saw where they keep all the stacks of technical data that hasn't yet made it onto the website ; }You could just slide out the amp preamp section and look inside for dating stickers or dated QA marks from the assemblists....Hope you have the best possible speaker for the job in there now : }Originally posted by greenboy: If this is as old as my colleague Cup Mc Mali says it did NOT originally come with either a Sheffield or a Scorpion. Pretty typical older Peavey - surprisingly loud for the wattage, utterly indestructible but with a weight to match and rather boxy but effective tone. IIRC it's the model above the TKO - 130W vs 75W, into a 15" Sheffield speaker.At that time the standard load was one of the Black Widow 15" models.
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.
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.
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.
