I was looking for a larger amplifier for my bass when I realized me and my guitarist friend couldnt play loud together since I had only a peavey minx 110 amp. I bought the amp from Guitarworks on 16th avenue in Calgary Alberta for $740 (Cdn dollars).
I really like the flexibility with this amp, lots of tone adjustments like the 8 frequency EQ panel and then your typical high, low knobs. This thing goes real loud and can easily wake neighbors up if played at the wrong time (trust me I know), it can also make stuff fall off shelves, so make sure you don't break nothin. It has a built in chrorus and crossover which lets you rig up multiple speakers and make some crazy effects with just the amp. Since it's a 15 inch speaker the long whole notes really drone out and fill the room with a wall of killer sound.
There are 2 downfalls to this amp, #1 is if your playing really fast it sometimes has trouble keeping up being such a big speaker and all. #2 the weight, man she's a heavy girl, I think the webpage said 88 pounds or something.
Solid peavey construction through and through that thing is beefy, I've dropped her a couple of times pretty hard but it still comes back for more. Many people say peavey is low quality stuff, and I know that its not top of the line, but for the price you pay you really can't complain, great sound and electronics that don't go all buggy on ya, your set.
I really like this amp and the quality Peavey has brought to the table, I have had no problems with all my peavy equipment I have bought. You really can't go wrong with Peavey, just because it costs less doesn't mean it sucks.
The Peavey TNT 115 is a versatile bass guitar amplifier that is useful in any situation where you’d want a bass amplifier. I’ve used the amplifier both for recording and for live shows, although I was playing with someone who was playing with this amp rather than using it myself. The amp is a big one, and is very heavy, as we had to use a dolly most of the time to move it around. I don’t know the exact size of the main speaker, but it’s got a large woofer as well as a smaller tweeter on it. It’s got ¼” connections for the main input, as well as for headphones. It also has an XLR output for sending a direct signal from the amp and using it sort of like a DI box. It also has a foot switch jack input and send and return loop ¼” connections.
The make up of the Peavey TNT 115 certainly offers up a lot of flexibility. It’s vast array of parameters is definitely the highlight of this amplifier in my opinion. Even with everything going on, it’s pretty easy to use if you take it piece by piece. The input section has a pre gain knob, as well as buttons for choosing either an active or passive input selection, a bright switch, and a contour switch. There is then a ground switch in the line out section, followed by a seven band graphic equalizer, and two knobs for controlling a more general high and low frequency bands. Lastly, the master section has a main volume knob. A manual might be a good idea for a beginner, but most users should be able to figure out how to use everything without one.
The sound of the Peavey TNT 115 can definitely take on many different forms. There’s a lot of room to get different sounds here and to tweak for use with different bass guitars, but the overall sound is full and boasts a ton of bottom end. It’s got the power to give you a nice and full sound, and it’s certainly nice to be able to tweak this much. The bass that I’ve mostly used with it and heard used with it is a Fender Jazz Bass. Another thing about the TNT 115 is that it can get extremely loud! Usually having the volume on half way is more than enough…
The Peavey TNT 115 is overall a very solid bass amplifier. It has more control over your sound than you’ll find with most bass amps, which is certainly a welcome thing in any situation. Even if you don’t do much tweaking, it’s easy to get a nice and full bass sound here, whether it’s for recording or live shows. The price of the TNT 115 is definitely reasonable, so intermediate players and others alike should be able to afford this. The only downfall with the amp is how big it is, but if you’re looking for a bass guitar amplifier with a lot power, the Peavey TNT 115 is definitely worth looking at.

I possde THE FIRST version of this amp so I do not know if the features are the same on the new.
HP 15-inch to 150 watts of power
Originally there is a compressor, a chorus and a qualiseur really very practical to make the sound less round.
Trs simple configuration a slider for volume and another for the gain.
Its easy with paramtrable qualiseur.
I did not have a manual ...
Agree I think the style of music quite aggressive but I did not test it on a lot of jazz or otherwise.
Combin a musicman stingray or ibanez BTB + GT6b's foot!
However tend to saturate quickly, as many hp simple ...
I use it for a year now, and it is really the only excellet inconvnient for this amp is for transportation we would love MLEs sries wheels!
I try to TKO behringer 120watt peavey and fender and rumble, there's no picture!
Quality price ratio for interesting surtou occasion was expensive for a new one ...
I do it again this choice without a doubt!
