Without a doubt, 1974 Session 400 with a 1501 BMX speaker.

You'll be surprised to know that the Robert Randolph amplifier head weighs 32 lbs. and the RR Enclosure weighs 33 lbs.

I picked up a very beat up Bandit 65 figuring I'd build a new cabinet someday. It has ended up in my shop now. I helped a friend on his PP last night and ended up playing thru that stock Bandit for about 3 hours. That amp sounds great, even with that crappy scorpion speaker in it. I'm going to rebuild a new pine cabinet and cover it in a nice tweed and stick one of my old JBL 12" JBLs in it. It is a really nice amp for sure, well worth the $40 I paid for it.

The Scorpion Series of speakers were designed and voiced for guitar and bass guitar, not steel guitar. I agree, it probably did sound "awkward", but used in the right application, the Scorpion is a great sounding guitar and bass guitar speaker. There are many in use all over the world and have been for over 30 years.

I loved my old Nashville 400. Then I got an Evans and I never looked back.

I used 2 Nashville 400s for years in the 80's & 90's stereo set-up that I liked, but now I prefer the 1000...better, richer lows & presence......I gave it up for a 112 because of my back...still prefer the 1000.

My first amp I ever used for steel was a Peavey Deuce. What an adventure that was. Nowadays I gig with a Nashville 400 and record with this Session 500 which is my favorite Peavey, just not very Chiropractor friendly.

The Heritage VTX is a two channel SS preamp / 4 6L6 power amp.

It is beautiful for every application including steel with the right speaker and the original N112 speaker is great with it. Havent tried others outside of the stock Scorpion which is aok.

As for the Peavey Scorpion - i like it better than 80 percent of most guitar amp speakers. Very universal for most any type of tone.

You don't appreciate what a great job peavey does until you spend a decade and untold thousands buying and trying all kinds of other stuff.
