    I really don't need another amp but I could buy one of these used near me for $100. The guy says it's in mint condition. It's a red-stripe made in USA model. I'm just a home player and I like my OD pedals. Is this a good amp for that and is the price good? Thanks.

    Good clean sound and pretty much indestructible. Might be a bit large for home use though.

    It's a workhorse amp, it sounds really good, it's a great pedal platform and the price is right.

    Great to hear. I think I'll snag it.

    Buy It. Use to own the same model and wish I still had the amp. Used it on outdoor stage with band and had plenty of power to "getRdone."

    I own one, it has a blown cap, that beeds to be fixed. Sounded good when it worked. Not bad for a 30+ year old amp.

    Just pointing out that the OP is talking about a RED Stripe USA model which was first introduced in 2000.... and was in production until PV moved production (of this amp) to China in 2004. This amp is 17 - 21 years old.

    Ah, yes mine is a Blue Stripe. Sorry for the confusion.

    That's a great amp. All of the Studio Pro line of amps that were made in USA were waaay under-rated except by those who had them for a while and knew how to use them.

    Nice one!

    I have a late '80s Peavey Bandit which is a great workhorse for gigs but I'd love to find a Studio Pro if they are lighter than the Bandit.

    Buy it. It has a volume knob and can be used at home and play.

    I think that's the last Studio Pro you can get. I think even right before they went to China PV started skipping the Studio Pro in the red stripe lineup going from the Envoy to the Bandit. The Studio Pro and Special 212 didn't carry on long during the red stripe era. It's probably 19-20 years old at the newest.

    Wonderful amp!! Wonderful cleans and takes pedals well. When asked about them, I respond "...built like a tank and weighs as much!"

    I own a 1987 Studio Pro 50. It's a beautiful little amp. Great sound, really light and easy to carry around. It easily holds its own in live band situations. The only weak point for me with this amp was the speaker. It wasn't necessarily bad, but I knew this amp could do much better with a speaker upgrade. So, I put a C-Rex in it and never looked back. It's an amazingly versatile amp. This one has a permanent, high-ranking place in my herd. It's not going anywhere. I highly recommend these.
