PA mixer still going after 25 years. It spent at least 10 years being housed and used in various non climate controlled practice spots. 120 in the summer and 30 in the winter.

Peaveys are kind of like the Volkswagens of audio equipment.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

Volkswagens are the opposite of reliable, or at least that's the general conception. Would they be the Subarus maybe?

There was a thread about peaveys in the tech room area, in which I mentioned playing through a peavey tube amp, which I thought was called the bandit. I was correctly informed that the bandit did not have tubes, which confused me. However, I was recently at a studio which had the same amp I remembered playing through with the tubes at the back, and the crap multi-coloured knobs. It wasn't a bandit I had had a pleasant experience using, but was in fact called a classic VT. Sounded fucking great to me for overdrive tones. I understand these are solid state/tube hybrid amps? Whatever, sounded awesome.

My Mark VI XP is a killer bass amp. Graphic EQ set flat, start with the shelving EQ knobs at noon and maybe adjust slightly, punch and bright switches on, little bit of compression... big lows, plenty of snap without being too attacky, dynamic without being demanding. Dial in a little gain, but rely on an EHX Hot Tubes for that really.

The new stuff is not as well made as the '80s stuff. The EL84 Classic series amps still sound great though, and the T-series instruments are great in every possible way, although bear in mind that I like a physically heavy instrument.

I always found the "automix" preamp of the Mace/Deuce/VT Classic models to have the fartiest, worst, useless-for-everything distortion in the world. I've heard a treble booster clears that up but never tried it. Cleans are fine though. I'm curious to try earlier models that have a dedicated fuzz circuit.

Grabbed a vertical 2x12 w/ casters for the new band (amp's gonna be an Orange Dual Terror). It's the '80s kind with the aluminum strips on the side. I like it, big surprise.

My current loud rig is that cab with this head

Sitting on top. It's pretty great. I love the huge 2X12 way more than I thought I would. I do miss my Musician Bass 400 head though, and plan to buy another asap. The Standard just doesnt growl as well as the Musician. The Musicians active EQ is also pretty great.

I've seen a Super Festival floating around on CL a bunch for around $400. Be still my beating heart.

A guy had one of those on craigslist here a couple of weeks ago for $35, in excellent condition, all working fine. I called a little too late.

Yeah, I got mine with the giant 2X12" cab for $150. I refuse to pay more than $150 for a Musician 400 Bass head, even though they are one of my favorite amps. A 400 through a small single 15" cab is just fantastic for doomy guitar and also mid-rangy Lee Hazelwood bass tones. The silver knob Peaveys are pretty rad all around. Peavey made a stereo Tube Power Amp also. I want one very bad, and have seen them for around $200. I'll have one.

I would rock Peaveys happily.

Some favorites include.
Peavey T-60 guitar, T-40 bass.

Peavey VTM series, Peavey Butcher (the orginals) , Peavey Bravo, Peavey Mark III bass amp, Roadmasters, MACE combos, Triumphs, Classics, are all great amps.
