Dating a peavey amp

Also, looking for speaker recommendations for this to be setup mostly for a clean, country type of tone. But I had an old MM 65 watt at one time that had peavey black widows in it.

AS YOU CAN SEE I USE THE MUSIC MAN 212RH CABS WITH THE HEADS, AND I LOADED THEM WITH CELESTION G12-M70 SPEAKERS. IT IS PRINTED ON THE CHASSIS IF IT IS SERIES OR PARALEL.

I looked at the back of my HD-130 Reverb, and it didn't say anything about series or parallel.

I don't know if this will help you date yours, but maybe narrow it down to the era it was mfg'd.

A good friend of mine had one that he used for guitar and it was a great sounding amp from the hybrid period...4 6L6 amp section with a ss front end and automix feature.

Mine was kind of beat up and had a real bad buzz so I traded it for something quite a while back when a friend of mine made me a deal on the 100 watt.

If I were you I would test drive some widows and see what you think.

What if I had two 16ohm cabs hooked up that same way? My other question is about the first channel on the amp.

When I have the Volume at 10, it has a great natural overdrive/distortion sound, but it is much softer than if I put the master volume to 10 on the 2nd channel.

THE HEADS DID NOT HAVE THE MIDRANGE KNOB ON THE REVERB MODLES BECAUSE THE HEAD CABINET IS SMALLER. THE LATER MODELS HAD THE JACKS WIRED IN PARALEL, LOOK AT THE SPEAKER JACK AREA TO MAKE SURE. ADAM79, ONE THING TO WHATCH OUT FOR WITH MUSIC MANS IS THE SPEAKER JACKS ON THE OLDER ONES ARE WIRED IN SERIES SO YOU SHOULD REWIRE YOUR CABINET TO 4 OHMS TO OPERATE IT PROPERLY [ 2 REWIRED CABINETS WOULD OPERATE AT 8 OHMS ] THOSE G12-65'S WILL SOUND GREAT !!!!

The speakers in it say music man on them and are fairly heavy.
