Peavey Session 500s were the thing in the 80s. Huge big sound, clean clean clean, heavy duty speaker.
Weighed a ton. Apparently we didn't care back then.
If you're going to play starched-collar clean, every fluff, buzz and miss is going to be amplified right alongside what you were trying to play. This may be why guitar players haven't flocked to pedal steel amps in the same way we've flocked to "musical harmonic distortion" from vacuum tubes running near their limit.
I still think a 1x15" is a good format for a combo amp, no matter how sinusoidal the signal you're amplifying.
What about the Jazz Chorus 120, seems to be a good match according to the equation clean clean clean, solid state.
My son plays pedal steel through a 1978 Fender Twin Ultra linear head into a 1 x 15 cabinet with a Peavey Black Widow speaker. It sounds awesome for steel guitar and is a great amp for Telecaster with a pedalboard.
