    I have had the older Mark III (second one down first pic of thread) since 1981 and must say it is amazing. I have played 3 or 4 times a month with no backup for 25 years. The sound did get fuzzy one night and the next day opened it up and found the fuse holder had broken. Soldiered the fuses in solid and it has never missed as beat since. I use a 18/210 cab under it.

    I love the old 2X15 BW cabs. I've been searching for another one for quite awhile.

    Peavey is a conundrum. They make some really sweet gear (Like the Cirrus), and some of the worst crap ever made (see the Combo 300).

    Here's my baby. I'm currently looking for the cab to back it up. I'm looking Peavey for the cab too, but I'm not sure I can find what I want in Peavey. Hopefully. :hyper:

    Smallest rig item in the pic. Peavey DPC-1400X. I rack space, 14.5 pounds, 1400 watts @ 4 ohms bridges, or 2 x 700 watts @ 2 ohms. Great specs and it lives up to them. Been pounding it out ever since probably late '98.

    I think we might have talked about this before, but I actually like my Combo 300 - the 1st one I had was a real workhorse, and this current one is decent..
     
  15. No pics yet, but I just obtained an 1820 and 2 15" Peavey monitors, and I have an 80's era XR600C powered mixer that I love.:D

    Gotta love Peavey!! I still have my Basic 60 combo that I've had for around 15 years...and it still performs flawlessly.

    Guitarist uses two Butcher heads.....those things eat Marshall's for snacks!

    Don't have a digital camera but I am proud owner of:

    Mark VI XP Series

    I have re-covered it in Teal Blue to match the colour stripes on the front panel -- as soon as I get a camera I'll show it to ya' all!

    It could be that I had a particularly bad one, and I had no problem at all with reliability, but it just sounded so darned bad, and was designed SOOO poorly. There is no way they could have made an amplifier any harder to move around.
    In the positive column, you have to love the Microbass. If there is a better sounding very low dollar practice amp, I don't know what it is!
