Peavey TKO 115

Peavey TKO 115Published on 01/14/11 at 15:00
This was my first bass amp. Peavey has made the TKO for awhile. It was a staple in their bass combo line.

Mine was 80 watts with a green stripe on the back plate which I believe means it is from the mid 90s. It had the 15' deep Black Widow Speaker.

My father gave it to me. I was 15 and started playing in bands. It worked out well. This amp probably saw 3-5 years of solid practicing and gigging. Knew I think they were about $400.


The graphic EQ. I'm going to guess it was a 10 band. I know it was at least 7. It also had a high and low boost. Pre and Post volumes. Headphone out and effects loop. Inputs for active of passive basses.

It was a beast to carry. There was no...…

It was a beast to carry. There was no DI out and also there was no additional speaker out.

Built tough. I used this thing hard. My bonehead singer was mad at me and damaged the EQ sliders and ripped off a knob. It was painful to see such a cruel thing happen to the indestructible Peaveys.

Loud, clean and reliable! Not much more you want in a bass amp.

Peavey TKO 115

Peavey TKO 115Published on 08/22/02 at 15:00
I got this amp at a local store for $500


I think its a decent amp
it is a good amp to start off with


the really low end bass(like open B-string on 5-string bass) won't pass through the amp very well at higher volume levels/the speaker starts to rattle and the speaker protection would come on probably more than it really needed to.

it is rather big for a 100 watt amp

it was really hard to use in larger rooms, especially when i was playing with a loud group
pretty costly for a starting amp


the amp was literally thrown together

the negative things about this amp seem to have outweighed the positive things so i would say stick with SWR or Gallien-Krueger

Quite satisfactory.

Amp transistor. An active / passive input, XLR line output, an effects loop. It is given for 75w rms. The Peavey w, in general, they are there, where others would show 120w ...
Switches: bright / contour / active-passive / eq in-out / preventing distortion in-out

Two cut-boost low and high + 7 equal strips (I think, I do not use it ...). Preamp volume and master volume.

UTILIZATION

This is could not be more simple. That said, I'm not special corrections, operating directly on my bass. I leave everything "right" and the sound is really powerful and well defined (I use the contour dig a little sound). This is exactly the sound I was hoping, full and clear both.

SOUNDS

It is very suitable for my rehearsals with a drummer and a guitarist. The latter plays a Peavey all high-end lamps (60w) and my little combo holds up. I play 4 and its going very well. It must be said, however, that my bass (Yamaha BBG5A) is quite generous in terms of big sound. I love the combination of these two. The amp is 90 degrees to the drummer and he hears exactly what is happening. I use no effects, no fireworks and I only adjust the sound on bass. I do not hate anything with him, I know this kind of small combo which should not ask for the moon, and I'm used to Peavey. In the 80s, I plugged my synths on KB300! What fish and how strong!

OVERALL OPINION

I use recently. I previously played on a lot of combos: Nemesis 200w, 120w Laney, Ampeg BR100, Hartke 100w, 200w bass Ampeg Rocket (one made in China that scorched if débranchait tweeter ... damn!). And quite frankly, I've never felt better with an amp. I love this little TKO. Used and having hardly served at a reasonable price, I'm satisfied. His replacement beefier for larger rooms will naturally Peavey and it will be a cool retreat at home. But this is not for tomorrow and I'm sure he'll be up.

Good amp effective

Peavey TKO 115Published on 04/25/12 at 04:50
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Accuracy: mine is different from current productions (see photo)
80W transistor amp
1 Low Gain input
A high gain entry
Switch "Bright" (allows a slight overdrive)
Filter Bass and Treeble
Egualiseur 7-band graphic
Loop effects
Headphone jack

UTILIZATION

Easy to use, the settings are simple to make. Versatile amp.
I had to clean the contacts of the pots to the bomb as it began to crachotter (after 15 years). The amp is just like new!

SOUNDS

I, unwanted with an Ibanez SR405 5 string with active Micos (High Gain input) or a Yamaha 4-string with passive pickups (Low Gain input). The sound is not really typed (transistor), it remains very neutral. The amp is powerful...…

SOUNDS

I, unwanted with an Ibanez SR405 5 string with active Micos (High Gain input) or a Yamaha 4-string with passive pickups (Low Gain input). The sound is not really typed (transistor), it remains very neutral. The amp is powerful enough, I've seen him walking on his own when the volume was 9-10 (Long ago when I played violent stuff ...). We keep the same sound regardless of volume level (no saturation) very thoroughly! The switch "bright" makes a bit of boost / overdrive treble which brings us very quickly to his dirty and filthy well.

The soundscapes are broad with this amp which makes it very versatile.

OVERALL OPINION

I used this amp from time to time for 17 years, he has never failed. I am not disappointed with my purchase. I'm pretty guitar so I've never really sought to invest in a tube amp for the bass ...
