Peavey: TNT 115

Sound — 8
Well, I play my Squire Jazz through it, as well as anyother basses I get my hands on, they all sound pretty good. I Play mostly classic rock as well as punk and any otehr songs I think sound cool, the only problem is it has a little trouble getting the slap sound I want, but that may be because of the bass. This amp is loud, 200 watts. When I'm practicing I hardly ever turn the volume past 3 and my 2 guitarists use a couple of 100 watt combos, so volume is never a problem.

Overall Impression — 10
It seems to be a good match for anystyle of music I've tried so far. I've been playing a little over 2 years, my first amp was a Peavey Minx110, which I liked alot so I looked into this, it was all the sound I was looking for and better. If it were stolen, I'd buy a new one for sure, I love mine. I wouldn't take an extra amp with me to gigs because it's very reliable and it also has a little light that flashes when your getting a little rough on the speaker, so no worries there. Very good amp.

    Man i own this amp. It pretty good. whenever we play outdoor shows i have to turn my amp way down just so i can hear the guitars. best amp i've bought so far.
    I got this amp about 3 months ago. It has a really great range, if for one part you want it deep and the other you want a bit more treble to it. Weights a ton though

    They have one of these at college, and it is easily the best Bass Amp there. Sounds great, very fat and full sound to it.
    a good friend of mine has one of these. i played my Warwick through it, damn she sounded purty in there. plannin on getting my hands on one as soon as i have the cash
