  3. hahaha !!

    i used to have one too !! they sound great !

    130w combo with one paper 15" speaker..
    the only think i didn't like about it was the flimsy
    cloth in front of the speaker..

    mine was from 1977, the manufacturing date is on the back of the amp, dude.. just below the serial number.

    well, i think its 77...theres no clear date though. yes, i do agree that the cloth is very flemsy, but i love it. i saved me a lotta cash too, hehe. im still rolling the old sucker' to gigs. its in mint condition, but i had to replace some parts. still sounds great. :)

    I have one too, except that it's TNT-130 combo. IIRC the manufacturing year was something like '84 or '74.

    Still sounds load better than that $200 I could get by selling it, so I'm keeping it as secondary amp :cool:

    I still use a Peavey TNT-130 with a B/W speaker. I couldn't STAND the thing until I found the owner's manual online and found the "recommended settings". Now I have a great "funk" setting that, if I never got the amp replaced, I'd be just fine with.

    But I wouldn't say no to a new 2x10 combo...
