*Posted this amp a couple months ago this is just a follow up* I switched to tube amps a couple years ago and never really looked back. Always felt I struggled to keep up power wise with my solid state stuff. I had 100,200,300,500 watt amps. All good quality... Ampeg, Hartke, Traynor, Ashdown. Always felt like I was having to push the amp too hard and I do not like the sound of a SS amp pushed hard. (I play in a loud, big energy hard rock band). Anyways my buddy pretty much gave me this late 80's Peavey TNT 150 for $25 2 months ago and it still continues to blow me away. It sounds great and I can easily keep up with my two guitarist and drummer. I can set it at like 4 or 5 with the eq flat and I'm good to go. With the last SS heads I had they were both 500 watts (Ampeg PF500 and Hartke LH500) and I always had them at about 8 or 9 and you could tell they were at their threshold. I'm guessing its just that the power ratings were more accurate/honest in the 80s? Anyways I am blown away and never thought I would say that about Peavey. I would pick up another for sure if I had the chance. PS: The Drum kit in the pic is another score I got for our jam room for $150 haha so $175 in total for the kit and combo!
