As stupid as this is, I probably have passed up some pretty decent amp deals because they had 'Peavey' written on the front. Yes, I know Peavey has made some incredible amps over the years, but they have also made some completely toneless behemoths. I'm speaking primarily of some of the amps made in the 80's. I actually played in a band with a guy whose motto was "friends don't let friends play Peavey". Otherwise I generally like crappy looking amps because I take pleasure in finding instances of substance in spite of lack of style. Jeez, even my Mark IIC+ isn't much to look at.
