    I second all of his comments as I have the same head.... man talk about vintage tones and thunderous roars!

    You will not be disappointed in this one if you have the muscle to tote it...96 lbs....but ain't nobody going to bump this baby and not have a bruise to remember her by…LOL!!!!

    I love the sound and I have had many offers to sell mine, but you can't replace such a classic sound. She is well built just like Peavey is known for as well; this is a totally awesome head...

    And when you have one that is in mint condition you truly have a hidden gem...

    If I had the money I would buy this one in a heartbeat!!!!

    Don’t let this one pass you by…

    Thought that I would pass along to you that i've lowered my price on this amp. This is as low as I will go. If you're looking for the ultimate tube bass amp, this is it.
    Read Boafamily's comments for a unsolicited second opinion. Like he says "Don't let this one pass you by".

    If you're interested I can email you pictures, along with the owners manual (PDF file) which contains all specs and features of the amp. A hard copy of the owners manual goes with the amp.

    PS - I'm in no hurry to sell, so please don't ask me for better price. This is a great price. :)
