I'm experimenting with the Boss Katana & Peavey Nashville 1000 amp again, this time on C6th. See if you can tell me what amp is which and the one you like the best.

Both are good, but the second one has more string separation.

Having lost my hi frequency hearing to a great extent, I can't be much of an opinion. The first is nice and round sound, moody. 2nd part seems to have a little more definition and note separation. ... Very Happy

And the answer is!



The first amp is the Peavey 1000
The second amp sound is the Katana.

That is pretty cool, I think the tone of both amps are beautiful. I especially love the tone on C6. I can't wait to get mine and just to try things out with this amp. Cool

I think the second amp is the Nashville 1000, more bottom and sweeter tone from that 15" BW speaker Very Happy

Mathew,
You really have experiment for about a week to get the tone. Don't expect to find it in an hour.

Hi Jim,
It is the 100 watt.

Yes I've played out live with it. It does well, but my Peavey is still my favorite. But for the weight, power, price
and function, it does good.

Here it is out live.

Ron, your tone on either amp is great. The live clip is excellent. That's a great band!
