I have a line on a used KB/A 100 1x15 amp. Would this be a decent steel amp?
Thanks.

In all honesty I'm not sure of the exact model number I used once--it was one of the Peavey keyboard amps. It was in the back line of a club so I saved my back and didn't bring my own. I ran a Pod into it. Being one of those 7 minutes to setup, play for 40 and get out kind of gigs, I didn't have nearly the time I wanted to try to tweak the amp and get it right. An amp's an amp and I've got to believe it could have been made to sound better than I was able to do. Still, it did its job.
But while that means that this amp wouldn't be impossible to use in such a situation, I don't believe it would be a desirable purchase as a steel amp. Definitely not a knock on Peavey. Just on using their KB amp for steel. Even if you've got a line on an incredible deal, my advise is to wait for something more right.

Thanks Jon,
I should have re-phrased the question to: Would a Peavey Keyboard Amp be acceptable for Steel Guitar....
It is a great price, but I think that I will wait. Good Advice.
I am currently using a SF Fender Super Reverb for a double duty amp, but I am considering selling it and buying two smaller amps, one dedicated to each instrument. Maybe a Peavey Nashville 112 and a Silverface Vibrolux??

Sounds like a good plan. Except that you might end up just using the Fender & an A/B. I do admit though that there's a certain something in a solid state rig that gives a sort of buttery roundness of tone that I have yet to capture with tubes. So I'm forever twixt & tween.

I have to agree that a keyboard amp wouldn't be the right amp for steel. Thanks for considering Peavey. I highly recommend that you check out the new Nashville 112 amplifier for your application. You can also perform a "search" function in the ELECTRONICS section for more views and comments about the Nashville 112.

If you have questions, I'll be glad to answer them for you about Peavey products. Toll free at 1-877-732-8391.
