    I have about $500-$600 dollars to spend, and i went over to American music the other day, and they had a new Peavey combo 115 for $525. I like it, but i have heard some bad stuff obout Peavey. What do you people think about the 115 combos, and peavey products?

    In that price range, Peavey is as good as any. Try everything you can find for what you want to spend. Let your ears be the judge. Peavy is very reliable, and damn near bullet proof.

  4. I have a combo 115, and it has been pretty good to me. Just make sure you wont have any trouble moving it, as it is very heavy. My speaker went to crap, but it was under warranty so I got it fixed for free!

    For the price, quality, sound and durability, you can not beat Peavey`s Amps.

    The Combo 115 is an excellent choice.

    Great stuff!, Great price!, Lats forever!
    I'm gonna check out the new PB500 head that came out at NAMM when it hits the stores:)
  7. I play out with a TNT 115 Combo and haven't had any problems at all. Except for the hernia from lifting the damn thing. Good sound, built-in graphic and chorus, very reliable.

    The Combo 115 is a good amp. You shouldn't have any trouble with it.

    I have no regrets over buying a Combo 115. I love it, great amp!

    They're one of my favorite combos. Very flexible. I had a 210TX combo before, which had pretty much the same preamp as the Combo 115, except it had 2x10"'s in it, not 1x15". You should be fine though. If I recall correctly, the Combo 115 uses BW speakers, which get a GREAT amount of mids. The porting of the combo is set to get a great bass response, as well. After getting it, you should be able to add a 2x10" to it, which is common. It's a great move, as well.

    I believe they come with casters, now?

    I've always been fond of Peavey, though. I haven't found any amp that I like better, in any price range. Granted, I've never been keen on combos, but I'm currently trying to get a BAM head and Pro 4x10 in the works. :)

    I bought a TNT 115, nothin bad sound wise. But weight. Just as the other have said, its heavy, 125lbs for mine i think. Get some good casters.
