No I don't mean dinner and a movie.
I have been using an old Peavey Duece recently. Really like it too BTW. It is somewhat different than the Duece I had back in 82. I think it's older.
It has tremelo and the newer one didn't, it had phase shift I think. Also, the covering is more like a basket weave texture. The knobs have little paper inserts (that are mostly pealing off).
Any good way to tell when it was made?

If you have a serial number for that amp, send an email to customerservice AT peavey DOT com. Tell them the model name and serial number and ask if they can tell you when it was manufactured.

The archived manuals show 3 different models of the Deuce. I'm not sure about the Festival model, but I know the one called the Deuce was out in the late 70's before the VT.
The orignal Deuce with the chrome knobs and stick on black centers had a Tremolo circuit whereas the the later VT had a phase shifter ala the old Session 500. I don't know if this will help you date yours, but maybe narrow it down to the era it was mfg'd.
A good friend of mine had one that he used for guitar and it was a great sounding amp from the hybrid period..4 6L6 amp section with a ss front end and automix feature. [I had one of the Artist amps that was similar in design with some of the same features.]

There was a period (somewhere in the '80s) where the date was coded on the serial number plate. If you see two digits of a likely year and a letter A through D--say 86D--that would be fourth quarter of 1986. Other eras are more cryptic and require channeling Meridian.
