Winter NAMM: Peavey TNT® & TKO® Bass Amps Boom With Amazing Power

January 15, 2009

ANAHEIM, Calif. Peavey has completely redesigned two legendary bass combo amplifiers, the Peavey TNT® and TKO®, for the Peavey Tour™ Series with massive-yet-lightweight power for a new generation of bass players. 

The Peavey TNT and TKO have been the amplifiers of choice for bassists looking for the best possible combination of power, tone, portability and value for more than 30 years. This pair of mainstays has continued to evolve with exclusive features as Peavey engineers push the boundaries of technology, and these new models for 2009 set a new standard in bass amplification. The Tour Series TNT and TKO give players an incredible range of tone and power. 

The Peavey TNT is a 600-watt max power bass amplifier that puts real features at players’ fingertips, including a footswitchable optical compressor for smoothing-out tones and footswitchable crunch for adding a tube-like effect that distorts only the high frequencies, preserving the all-important fat low end.
 
The TNT and the 400-watt TKO share a seven-band graphic EQ with high and low shelving controls, plus bright and contour switches, effects loop, master volume and headphone out. The amps also feature a built-in XLR direct interface that players can use to route the signal to the house sound system, while the new tilt-back design lets users angle the amps upward and use as a monitor.
 
The Peavey TNT and TKO bass amplifiers will be available from authorized Peavey retailers in Q2 2009.
