Hi, I saw a Peavey Backstage Plus amp at a flea market for $40

Wow...around here it's hard to find one for less than $100 in good condition!

I own four of those Peavey Backstage Plus 35W amps. And no, you'd never get one of mine for 'less than $100'. Not after all the work that goes into each one of them. They look and perform like brand-new.
I'm currently in the process of converting the last one I bought over eBay into a 35W 'head' that will drive a 2 X 12" Carvin cab. Already did a 'dry run' with the project head down at the Carvin store.. very LOUD going thru that 2 x 12. It will be nice to use this new creation as soon as possible.
I have an old TNT 100 bass amp with a 15 inch speaker. Its old , its been around the house forever....Its solid state , big deal. It always goes tunk when you flip the switch. Its nothing fancy but its a good working amp and it saves people haveing to haul an amp when we have a music session. rat
I've got an old Peavey Backstage amp that I bought about 6-7 years ago for $100. I like its vibe. Clean sound is decent but the distorted/OD sound you can get from it is pretty good.
One neg is that it has the older two-pronged plug and I would be very hesitant to use it anywhere but in my home when practicing or recording to the computer. I don't totally trust any amp that dosen't have a three-pronged grounded plug.
The spring reverb (I think it has a spring reverb tank; it's stashed in the back of the closet at the moment so I can't verify this) ocassionaly acts up and I have to turn the 'verb down but I actually like the vibe the amp throws out.

I've got an old Backstage Plus that I've had since the early '80s. I dug it out of the attic to use for teaching purposes. The speaker gets flubby on overdriven bass notes. Could y'all recommend 10" speaker replacements? Thanks...
