Peavey TNT 115?
Is it loud enough to gig with? General quality?
I had a TNT 130 years ago, and it was bulletproof. I overheated it a couple of times playing in 90 degree sheds for hours at a time, but it was still working when I gave it to a friend after years of hard usage.
With no PA support, I'd recommend something bigger if you're competing with a drummer who likes to play loud.
Depending on year made, but old TNT's from the 80's could get loud and are bullet proof so to say. Heavy as hell but built like a tank.
I use one (TNT 115, early 00's) in a rehearsal space and find it a nice sounding and versatile amp. I prefer my regular rigs (GK, JBL 15s, etc) but I don't feel I'm hurting as I can get my sound easily enough. That 7 band graphic eq really helps.
Have also gigged it a couple of times with a blues-rock group in a small bar and it was plenty. But I was working with a couple of guitarists and a drummer who understand volume restraint. You can add another 15" and you'd probably be fine in most circumstances.
Have also played the older TNT 130s and used them for the same applications successfully.
I owned a TNT 115 for awhile years ago. I was pleasantly surprised by the full-range, punchy tone and the crispness & clarity. No mud there. It's sort of what I imagine the GK Neo 115-III cab sounds like.
At only 100 watts RMS (as I recall), it's unrealistic to expect it to cover high volume requirements in large rooms. It's a club amp. So long as you use it for its intended purpose, and keep any unrealistic expectations in check, you'll be good to go. For the very reasonable price, you could do a lot worse. :hmm:
I've got a TNT 130, think it's early 80's.
PLENTY of volume, I use it at outdoor gigs and you can hear it for a long way.
Weighs a ton.
I love my TNT. Not sure what year but its the one with red trim on the face plate and a blue marvel speaker. It rated 200W RMS @ 2 ohms and 150W RMS @ 4 ohms. I think it could be easily use to gig small clubs and bars. I run mine in tandem with a Basic 112 and it is really loud. The best part is I run the Basic at the upper end of its volume range and it growls and snarls like crazy and really adds to my overall tone. The TNT cruises along smooth as silk.
