My Peavey DynaBass 5 string. We have been workmates for 26 years. I call her Lucy. I included a pic of the rear compartment showing the 8 position dip switches that can alter the mids frequencies. It took me a while to find the setting I liked.
I ordered her in early 1991 from Allans Music here in Adelaide who went through the distributor Australis Music in Sydney, who in turn ordered her from Peavey in Meridian in the States. It was about a 6 month wait. She is a 1991 model.
I was asked about the white logos. I made them from Contact book covering (sticky backed plastic covering stuff). It took me ages to copy the logos and cut them out carefully and stick them onto the pups and headstock. She looked a bit plain I thought at the time and the extra logos seemed to brighten her up and from a distance from the stage it showed people what make it was..loll Those stuck on logos are still there 26 years later. She plays like no other bass I own now, or have ever owned. She is my workhorse.

Yeah noplanb..its a great Peavey rig..I bought it from Regent Music early 90's i think, and had to drag the cab up the stairs that led into a loading zone on Grenfell Street..needless to say I was pooped after all that cause those Peavey 1820 boxes weigh a ton with the 18" Black Widow and 2x10" Scorpions loading the marine ply box down..the MarkIV head weighs heaps as well..if I remember cost was about $1500 for the head and $1500 for the cab back early 90's..so $3000 for the rig. These days she owes me nothing and still awesome to hear at any venue. She pumps that much pressure out of that cab the backs of my legs get pummelled by the force of the air passing by. Together with the Peavey Dyna Bass .. Potent.

Here's a snapper from a gig I played at The Zoo on Saturday. I dislocated my shoulder a week ago so I had to keep things fairly tame on stage.
