51 Geoff_Vane 10 months ago We had a Peavey solid state here at our broadcast station. It was sold by cameraman Bert (who played in bands once) to my friend Rico. It was as big as a washing machine and just as heavy. We called it Bert, like the cameraman: square, heavy and indestructible. Peavey Bert drew large sparks out of the wall power socket. The neighboring village noticed a dip in the brightness of their electric lights when Bert was activated. This amp could kill lifeforms at volume 0,5. It was easily the loudest musical instrument amp I have ever seen so far. Rico sold Bert to colleague Luc from the computer department. His kids are in a metal band and Bert just wipes out everyone like it should. Peavey solid state for the kill.I like the sound of the Peavey C30. It's a musical stove that cooks its own tubes and boards to death but while at it, the sound is much better than what you pay for it.
