Last year, about this time, I was having a GAS Attack of the highest order. I just had to have a big Peavey Solid State 212. Found a Silver Stripe Special 212 that was great in all respects so I bought it. Long story shorter, I love the big powerful 212, but, I am currently back to an athletic support for my right knee. I’ve been amp-ed again. As of yesterday I said goodby to yet another Destroyer Class amp. Long live big iron... 50+ year old knees, maybe not so much.
