    Any chance I can run my Morgan Monroe MVAB 500 through my Yorkville/Traynor Acoustic Master 100 into my Peavey TNT 130? The Yorkville has a nice effects section.
    If so, how do I set it up?

    Thanks all...


    The input to Channel 1 is unbalanced with an input impedance of 1Meg-Ohm, and can accept either passive or active pick-ups (piezo/coil).
    Channel 2 This channel accepts line level signals, a microphone (XLR), or any instrument with an active pickup with it’s own volume control. Both channel inputs are balanced (TRS or Tip/Ring/Sleeve, +/-/gnd). The ¼-inch phone jacks also accept regular unbalanced cables. For best results and to reduce noise, it is advised that you use balanced (stereo) cables for interconnection wherever possible.

    You've provided tons of specs from the manufacturer, but many here won't know what each piece IS. Combo amps?, Heads? If you describe each piece in detail, wattage, spkr compliment, etc, and the aim of this proposition, we can better help. For now, I wouldn't try connecting ANY of it.

    I would try the line out from the Yorkville into the power amp in of the TNT.

    Thanks to both Ricken Boogie and Low EZ. Next question? I've got a rattle and my buddy says that it may just be something loose. I thought I'd check the guts first, then worry about a speaker going bad.
    HOW do I get inside this beast? I can't find anything except my manual.
    Thanks

    I picked up a Peavey Heritage VTX 100 Watt tube guitar amp. I lent it immediately to a friend, but he's bringing it back this week.

    I intend to hook it up into my TNT 130 as a biamp rig to see whether I can get a good tube tone running the high mids and highs to the guitar combo.

    The TNT130 has a crossover and a high out and low out for just this kind of setup.

    I think the thing to do is go Bass>TNT>High Out>guitar amp and set the xover to taste. But I'd have to look at it, and it's blowing 60mph outside, cold, and snowy.

    So plug into the bass amp, and run a line up from the high out to the guitar amp.

    The Peavey has an effects loop, too. :)

    This picture takes me back - I had a TNT 130 back in the 80s. It was a real workhorse!
