    New to me, found on a local online marketplace ad and picked it up last night. 2005 production, appears to run fine as I've only had a few minutes to test it out. C Peaveyvalveking112.jpg ouldn't pass it up for $125.00.

    I have had two of these. Only issue that could develop is the lack of solder for the input jacks around the connection points on the PCB. The repair is as simple as taking the chassis out and touching up the solder connections. Otherwise its a solid amp! Enjoy and congrats on a NAD

    Welcome to the club!

    I do the "dummy plug" and "loop jump" trick in mine to get sharper tones out of it, as per this websites suggestions. I bought mine new when they first came out. Never looked back.:)

    These are super underrated amps. New classic 30 IMO.

    I'm checking it fully tomorrow; my son's bringing over his tube tester, and the amp needs a good cleaning it was sitting in the sellers garage for a couple of years as it belonged to his brother who passed away. Seller wasn't a guitarist, and I had to bring one of mine to test the amp before buying it.
