    If that's a behemoth, what would you call the 2x18 version?
    Peavey_3820.
     
  4. That looks like the 1820. Probably a great cab to keep at a location for practice. I had a 1516 that was heavy and awkward enough.

    Had it as a backline once with a vintage Peavey head. Sounded horrible! LOL!

  7. I had 2 of the 1820s at one point... maybe it was just my cabs in particular, but the 18s could not handle my 5 string. Ended up gutting them, giving to a cat shelter for cat houses. The 10s made nice guitar speakers.

    Tommy Shannon had 2 of the 3620's when I saw him back up SRV. The guy from UB40 used them too.

    Whenever I see the 1820 I want to say "Great GooglyMooglies!"

    I had a Crate cab w/an 18 and 2 10s in the early 90s. Man, that thing was heavy! No casters or decent handles, either.

    The good news is you could probably shoot that thing with a shotgun and it wouldn’t sound any different.

  15. The good news is that Peavey gear is going to last a lifetime.

  17. I had one of those as well. I called it the "Big Bottom". I sold it to a young dude who didn't have a bad back--yet.

    Do you think the american chiropractic lobby had an inside man in peavy r & d?

    Consider that conspiracy theory officially started right now.

    In that case, maybe we should name it King of Suck!

    I had an 1820 for a while...it sounded just like I deserved at the time. I think I was playing an Ampeg V6B through it. Can't remember what bass...it was either my 75 P or a Charvel 3B (it was the 80s, yo)
