« Peavey Special 130 Combo »

Published on 09/04/04 at 15:00
A novice friend sold this amp to me for 100 bucks US.

Pros: Believed to be one of the best amps Peavey's ever made.

Though it's a solid state, it does a fantastic job of sounding like a tube amp. I put an 8 ohm speaker in there for added depth. Clean and dirty blend well when switching.

Running direct out, the response is extremely transient. Can you say, "spank"?

Works well with Marshall Gov'nor, Tube Screamer, Boss Super Overdrive. Try pedals on the clean channel too!

Reverb on this is AWESOME. You'll never tire.

Wish they still made them!

Rating: 5


Clean channel just needs a little air on the bottom end to let it breathe, 4 or 8 ohm.

I've fried speaker coils 4 times over 13 years, but well worth the investment.

Quality, durability, construction: 10.

If you're looking for a reliable combo where you don't have to worry about tubes and still want that sound, and if you happen to find one of these, grab it!
