Special 130 I picked up a Special 130 after looking long and hard for something to take out besides my Nash 400. I play pedal steel and one over 70lb piece of gear is enough! Granted Sp130 is still heavy it is not as heavey as Nash 400. Got mine with original paper manual from 1982. Great cond but need recap and new speaker. Cant tell you how much I dig this amp. Has similar tone of Nash 400 plus para mid eq. Great for unmiked gigs. Will keep up with anything. Clean channel really nice. In one group I plug a tele and a vintage D-8 Gibson steel guitar into it and it handles both very well. I use an eq pedal or slave my Frenzel into it to have control over both inst. Steel really benefits from the tubes in front. The tele sounds great just straight in with delay. Steel guitar can be really picky. Esp pedal steel. The Peavey Special 130 holds its own with or without the tube slave amp in front. I just like to slave it to get the 6v6 sound for steel. Sure beats dragging around a twin or Nash 400. I like it because it is not digital. Has beefy transf. and great clean tone with lots of headroom for steel guitar. If my tube head goes down I can still do gig. Lots of reasons to like this amp. Footswitch somewhat archaic but no big deal. I kinda get a kick out of showing off this amp for the cork sniff crowd. I took logo off plus alum bars and it looks kinda stealthy all black! Love my 130!
