    Perhaps these will explain.

    Yup, I got what I paid for it. I think I traded in a few crappy Nintendo games for it. In the mid 90's I bought a Peavey Studio Pro 112 TransTube amp. The thing's old enough to drink, has been half way around the world and back, and yet, it still sounds good. I've had to crack it open and use contact cleaner on the knobs, but haven't had to replace any burnt out components.

    Vintage tube amps, a sound all of their own I prefer it.
