Peavey triumph 60w SOLD TO OUR ESTEEMED LEADER

Post by Kris »

I need to clear some stuff from my last manic buy up-this is the "on the piss triumph"
?
well i attacked it when i was on the piss with a skill saw and turned it in to head -having been a combo.And i didnt measure it :rofl: So now it hilariously lop-sided.easy to remedy if you feel the need.
Amp spec wise its a 3 channel answer to the hot rodded marshalls in the 80's.great clean,takes pedals well.6l6,spring verb.This was actually the one chur picked up for peanuts and modded.So it has all the usual mods plus a prescence/resonance knob.looking to clear space so 300$ and ill throw some cash bg's way from the proceeds.

I had one of these back in the day, bought it new and gigged with it for a few years.

That is a great amp for the money, especially with the mods done.

Interesting EQ settings you have there...

Likewise, head and vertical 2x12. If this was a head that always was a head, I’d probably buy for nostalgia alone!

Yer it was a wreck when I got it. I recall I did a depth mod, and replaced every electrolytic in it with Nichicon along with some of the larger high wattage resistors around the power tubes. They were all swollen, especially in the power supply area.

My notes suggest I also settled on snipping C15, C17, C63, and bypassed CR1/2 (standard mod for these amps). I used a 3n3 for C13, as it started getting a little flabby with much more. I replaced the crappy (known to fail) loom between the main boards with the blue wire in the pic with yellow cable ties.

Peavey Logo was from Willow, some PCB’s and footswitch from Optical and back then it had a V30 in it from Single Coil iir. I think I still have an empty chassis for it, and most of a footswitch out in the shed.

Heres a pic of it when I was done

I know there have been a couple of owners since, so can't say how it sounds now, but I think with the work I did, it should at last a long time. Only reason I sold it was bills and the Boss Katana did everything I needed at the time.
