Hi Everyone,

I know some of you have converted your combo amps to a head/cabinet configuration in an attempt to reduce weight.

I'd like to see some of the conversions you've done for such amps as the:

1. Peavey Session 400
2. Peavey Nashville 400
3. Peavey Vegas 400
4. Peavey LTD 400
5. Fender Twin Reverb
6. All others

I thought it would be interesting to see what some of you have done and any new twists on the color scheme, etc. Please post some photos of your conversions!

Thanks,

Don

I had Rick Johnson Build this head cabinet for me. I cold never get the money together to get a matching cabinet made, so I just left the speaker in the original combo cabinet, and use that.

I got this Head from a guy who cut it down. It came out pretty good. It has 1/4" speaker outs so it is easy to use any extension cab. It has a pretty cool sounding Chorus, and is overall a very flexible 2 channel Head.

Very nice!

Richard: What is that in the effects loop?

Pete: Looks like a cool steel amp especially with the SHIFT control. How does it compare to a NV 400?

It's a Zoom MS50-G multi-effects pedal. The Reverb died a long time ago. I use the pedal for reverb and sometimes reverb/delay.

These are cabs I built and covered. The 2-12 cab JBL D-120F, the small single cabs are 1-12 EV12L’s, the two large are single 15” JBL D-130F’s. The Twin is a 100 watt master vol. head. I really like having a two channel amp for guitar and steel.

Not a "steel" amp, but the little Bandit sounds pretty good at low volume.
