I'll give you $50. Lol. Probably as good or better than its Roland JC equivalent. I think you got a good deal.

I own one and its built like a tank and great SS amp. Lots of power and put a few pedals in front and you can hang with a drummer all night. Congrats and that price, you stole it seriously. I paid around 150.00 used for mine a few years ago.

Could probably benefit from larger speakers, but I haven't heard one, so I may be underestimating it. As Marcos indicates/confirms, plenty of power available.

It is a sort of "baby JC120", feeding the delay to one channel and clean to the other. I have Fender Sidekick 20 Chorus that uses the same strategy: simple chorus and two power-amp chip channels with delay on one. The effect loop in mine allows for stereo return, where yours doesn't. But yours has built-in reverb, which mine doesn't. Looking at the chips used, and the supply voltage, I suspect yours has a little more power on tap as well.

All in all, a good score.

Anything Peavey is worth a look. Built like a tank. I've been using my Peavey SP2's with the Black Widow speakers in them for 30 years or more. Yes their heavey but I put wheels on them. Still work like they did the day I got them and they were used.

Great speakers. Owned a set and had to give them up cause of weight but agree, they are fantastic.
