Is an 11 year old tube amp in very good condition worth $350, which is basically $300 less than a new one? No shipping or tax on the used one.

The amp is a Peavey Delta Blues, 30 watt, 1x15.

Thanks for any input.

It uses three 12AX7 and four EL84 tubes.

I'd think it's had a good quality assurance test run and should be safe from breaking by now.
If it comes with new tubes, bort preamp and poweramp, I would say it's a good buy so you can delay that maintenance cost.

I guess I have answered my own question because I found another one only 1 year old, going for less money. So I guess 11 year old should be cheaper.

Thanks guys.

It is a good deal, just make sure it is working properly. Put it on a test run and play for like 30-60 minutes hard.

Try both amps to see how they work...11 year old amp can sound great if it had proper care and maintenance...
