    Peavey are a good brand. Just play with the amp and see what YOU think. If it is dirty, or needs a new paint job, thats fine, but if it has buggered electrics or anything else that is vital, i wouldnt worry about it too much.
     
  3. Thier amps are pretty good. How ever I recently played through a peavey bamb at a retailer. I was just awe by the sound it had and the many sounds and effects it produced. If you can afford one I reccomend it.

    I had a Peavey Combo for 20 years and never had a problem with it. The only reason I got rid of it was because I needed more power. When the Combo first came out it was 150 watts, then later on they made them 300 watts. Peavey is awesome.

    If the amp sounds good to you and does all that you need it to, it would be a good choice.

    I read time and time again how Peavey stands behind their products and keeps a supply of parts for a long period of time...

    I agree with all the above. I have a 25 year old Peavey combo that has been used abused and then some, and i never had a single problem with it. Bought a few other amps over the years including SWRs and Ampegs and always came back to my 130 watt Peavey. It has had more than what I needed for every single gig I've ever played - and that's a lot of gigs.
