    I was siting in Pre-Cal and the guy siting next to me played bass, he quit playing and he wants to sell his gear. So I said I would look at some of it.
    He had this Peavey 400 series Amp, and a Peavey 1X15 cab. The amp has a crap load of knobs. It was a damn deal!!!!! Hey and does not sound that bad, the mids are awesome. So I bought it, sweet deal!!

    Peavey 400?
    You mean the Classic 400 TUBE HEAD?

    If you bought a Peavey Classic 400 all tube amp for $150, then you have made a great deal - they go for at least 4 times that. And that's without the cab.

    Naw, he got a 400 series...precursor to the old style MkIII and MkIV heads.

    Still a good buy for $150. That thing will run forever (it's already lasted about 25 years!)

    400 watts at $150 bucks? I don't care if its a sears-roebuck amp, as long as it works you got a great deal.

    That just strait-up ROCKS! The best thing about Peavey gear is that you can't break the stuff.... I have an ancient Combo 300, that sounds cool and is heavy as hell, but I have done just about anything to it, and it doesn't skip a beat... it also has too effects loops, one pre-eq and one post-eq, which I thought was pretty trippy.... You got a great deal! Enjoy...

    yeah it is not a mark series, tube amp, it is solid state, but I sure wish it was tube!!. But it is prety cool, the distortion on it sounds amazing. I pluged the cabinet thru my Yorkville 200 watt combo and it did not sound to good, I don't think that was enough power. Ohh yeah the kid was selling that and a MIM Pbass for $400
