FINALLY traded in my 'ol boat anchor (old 80's Peavey Combo 300). It was a great amp, and served me well for a long time, but I'm sick of lugging it around. It weighs as much as a VW Bug. I did tons of research, looked at a lot of new and used stuff from GK, Ampeg, Peavey, Hartke, etc. Finally decided on this one, way more bang for the buck. This is the new 300w version. Played one in the store for a while and it thumps. I was blown away by the 200w 112 combo they have, but I wanted the extra head room for outdoor/larger clubs. Got one new in the box from GC AND they gave me $100 for my old combo 300 which I was happy with (had no strips or badges on the speaker cover and was pretty banged up, although it still sounds great). Anyway, got one new in a box (which I haven't even taken out yet). I'll post more info once I get it opened up and plugged in. Found very little info on here, or anywhere on these new combos, so I'm hoping to offer some insight for anyone interested in it. I'll keep you posted, this is the amp I got... http://www.guitarcenter.com/Peavey-Max-115-II-1x15-300-W-Bass-Combo-Amp-108265794-i2665691.gc Between the trade on my old 300, the 12% off they have and my christmas gift cards, it cost me almost nothing out of pocket.
