I own a Fender Hot Rod DeVille 410, and I was looking for a smaller tube amp combo to use at home. I purchased the Peavey on Ebay for $185.00

I love this combo! The clean channel is crystal clear, bringing out the best from my Strat. The dirty channel will give you almost any level of "crunch" that you want, from SRV blues to the high gain of the old Sunn stacks. The Peavey has a two button footswitch, allowing me to go from clean, to crunch, and to more gain. The amp's drive settings sound better than using my Tubescreamer!

I guess the only thing that I would change is having the ability to turn the reverb on and off at the footswitch. Other than that, it is awesome!

It's a Peavey-built like a tank! It uses 2 6L6's and 4 12ax7's (same as my DeVille). Bases on my experience with other Peaveys that I've owned, I don't anticipate any problems with this amp.

These aren't made anymore, but are available on Ebay from time to time. I think it is one of the best amps I've owned.
