Found this on my local Craigslist the other day and picked it up today. It's a Peavey Heritage VTX 130 combo. Listed as an '82 model. Sounds good. Loud, too. Cool sounding amp. Also has a built in phaser effect, too. The guy bought it brand new and only gigged it twice and tucked it away all these years. Still has the original tubes, manual that's still sealed in the bag, and price sticker on it. It is a hybrid amp. Got it for $180.

Very good deal.  

In the late 70s - early 80s I had a 4x10 50w Peavey Classic combo, VT (hybrid) with phaser and that 4-way footswitch which had its own special socket.

It was an excellent amp, well built and a bit darker than a Fender.  Wish I still had it.

I think you got a good deal.

I think so, too. The price tag is still on it where this guy got it brand new in '82 and it was $599.50 back then. Also came with the receipt, too.

This is a really great sounding amp. This one is the 2x12 130 watt combo Heritage VTX. It has the built in phaser and 4 button footswitch, too.  As good as this sounds, I bet the one you had sounded good, too. Peavey made some great stuff. You can find a lot old/older Peaveys second hand at great prices.

Peavy amps don’t take a back seat to anyone. Great amp you got there.

I agree. I've always liked them

I had a very similar Peavey Stereo Chorus 212 with Scorpions. Very powerful, very loud, great for any large venue, in or outdoors. Never broke down, sold it 5 years later and sounded as good the day I bought it.

Nice amp.  Great deal.  I love my Peavey Amp too.  I'd post a picture but I don't know how to deal with the 0.05MB size limitaiton.
