    After years (18 months) of hard worlk and saving i have my new amp. Many of you may have posted in my threads, where i asked "whats the best amp for me". :D

    I had been offered a Warwick Sweet 15 for $1450AUS, and decided id go and give it a burl. I went and tried it, and it sounded good. couldnt complain. Nice, warm sound and good all round. I asked if he could go any cheaper and he said no, he couldnt. I told him that id be back later that after noon with my bass.

    On the way home i though i might stop in at the other local muso shop. I told the salesperson what i have got, and what i had been offered, then i asked if he could do anythnig the same or better. he showed me a Hughes and Kettner 15" 150 watts. It was nice, but i liked the Warwick better. As he was walking off, he pulled my attention to a Peavey TNT 115 BW. I went and had a looj, and he pointed out the 7 band EQ and the built in Chorus effect. my eyes lit up , and at $1450, i was happy. then he went one step futher and said he'd give it to me for $1200, with a 2 month lay by, and a 31 day warranty. My eyes lit up.

    2 days later im at home with my new beast. She sounds great. Theres still some stuff i dont understand, like how to use the EQ properly, and what the shelving controls do. It has wheels!! :cool:

    Its huge, i stood up on it last night, and it didnt make a sound. It bareley fits in my mums torana aswell :D

    I took some pics, and here she is!

    Nice amp Phill. I've never played through a TNT before, but I have heard many good things. I'm sure you'll have much fun with it.

    Dude, you can be equal to me in peavey love. Not bad amps ARE THEY? I will only use their cabs. Just plain great, and you will have that thing, if you want, FOREVER. Peaveys do not die easy.
