Don't know if this is where one goes to gloat rather than to publicize available gear, but I am so, so pleased with myself. After fifteen years or so of toying with the idea of getting a Peavey Databass, but never having the money or the timing right, lightning struck last night on the Kansas prairie. http://wichita.craigslist.org/msg/1297397210.html Got it home, and while it isn't the prettiest, and has a bit of a hum and noisy fan, it *is* gig-worthy and LOUD AS HELL. Speaker appears to be original. And after some attention (clean pots, add casters, tech check over) should do me good for a long time to come.
