Hoo, boy. I play my Peavey Classic 50 with the amp turned up and the guitar turned down, most of the time, and I enjoy it that way, but today there's nobody home, and I got here while most of the neighbors would still be at work, so I dimed the guitar volume. I played as long and loud as I could stand it. I still haven't figured exactly what all the knobs do, but they do it loudly when they're pointed at the big numbers (8s and 9s; the 12s scare me.) I wish I'd had one of these when I was a kid. Maybe not though, 'cause I can kind of hear still.
