Got this amp from a friend on another forum. It seems to be exactly what I wanted. I was hoping for an amp that didn't suffer a lot from sound change using different volume. With kids sometimes I have to turn it down and I hate when my other amps just sound weak when quieter vs just not as loud. I need to get the reverb working, but the vibrato sounds EXCELLENT. More subtle than my Univox U45. It has a great clean tone. Very wonderful. Warm and clear. I can't wait to hear it when I fix the tank. Pics below.

Packing was excellent. Probably the most packing peanuts I have seen in one box in my whole life.

After I got the box with the amp out of the box of peanut doom, I went to cleaning it.

I got my replacement tank. Was a killer deal. $18, how could I argue? Here are pics.

Oh man, I love these amps! that's a great buy they always sound amazing. If you have kids i am surprised you didn't go for a silverface Vibrolux, twins are some of the loudest combos I've heard.
