I checked it out for a bit with my buddy Boo Miller operating the steel as I manipulated the controls.

It seemed to be a very nice feature loaded amp that can pack a wallop if need be. The controls were very responsive and will be familiar to veteran Peavey users. The light weight is a big plus and the "street price" isn't really all that bad considering that you are getting good effects, powered stereo capabilities, warranty from a trusted company, etc. etc.

If I were in the market for a new amp I would certainly put this on my list of amps to consider.

I am speaking of the Session 115 model. We didn't have time to check out the Robert Randolph model or the new Nashville 112 which were also available to test drive.

I had my new Session 115 on stage and used it Friday morning on the main show.
It was DEAD ON. Crystal clear and very responsive.
Several others used my amp during the weekend.

I spent some time in the Peavey room demonstrating the controls and letting people play my Zum through the new amps.
Both the Session 115 and the new Nashville 112 are the great amps that we expect from Peavey.

Wayne Dahl, Buck Reid and myself all played in the Peavey room and were impressed with the new amps.

Contact my buddy Gary Sill (Gary Sill Music). He has all the new amps in stock and ready to ship.

Peavey has been there for us steel players through thick and thin for years. Quality, sound and trying to keep the price reasonable.

Some other good amps out there as well, but I always seem to compare them to Peavey (I ask myself, "does this amp have the Peavey sound for steel")
