    It's a great old amp (circa 1985ish?). A lot like the old Bandit 65s, but with the "distortion channel" only.
    But you can still get a good clean sound out of it. And it's loud as all hell.

    Another great feature is it's barely 30 pounds. It's going to be great amp to gig with.

    The vintage Peavey amps are great!

    My SP is my amp at our practice room. It's not a big change to my TRAYNOR YRM1 or my tweed deluxe for gigs.

    Nice amp! Congratulations! I have a Bandit but would love to find a Studio Pro for a little less weight. :confused:

    Congrats on that amp! Those are really great little amps. I've been on the lookout for one of those for a couple of years now and finally scored a really mint one on CL just a few days ago. These amps have a huge WOW factor going for them.

    I use a studio pro for my main amp. Exactly what you said, loud as hell and great cleans. Never had a problem being loud enough with a full band. Seems to produce better sounds from pedals than other amps I own

    I changed out the stock speaker yesterday for an Eminence Texas Heat I had stored away....it made a huge improvement in the sound and touch sensitivity. This speaker is definitely staying in.
