    I have 3 Peavey guitar amps. 2 are about 35 years old (210 watts each) and the other is about 20 years old (150 watts). I have not been able to find an amp that I like better. I’ve been playing for 45 years. They are the most reliable amps I have ever seen. My favorite is a Peavey Musician 400 through the original bass reflex cabinet. A little contact cleaner will fix the “scratchy knobs”. Cut off the old plug and put on a “hospital grade” plug. Replace the whole power chord if the old one is cracked or brittle. Open it up and vaccuum out all the dust to help disapate the heat. I can’t help you with the price, but it would be just a fraction of the cost of a new Ampeg.
