I have been the only owner of this amp since 1986 - originally used with a Yamaha DX21 and RX7 drum machine for a small experimental electronic house band in the Lower Mainland. Google this amp and you'll see that the consensus is that it is one of the -- if not THE -- finest synth amps ever made. Very robust (indeed it is really heavy at ~35kilos!) and versatile (would be suitable for a large gym or hall), if you play keyboards you need this amp.

In addition to the Yamaha DX 21 synth and drums (for which the sound tone and quality is about perfect), we frequently put vocals or mic acoustic guitar (or other sampled sounds) through the 3 channels of the amp, and had a lot of success mixing interesting sounds. Reverb is good. 3 inputs, volume + gain controls, low, mid, high and reverb for each input. There is a master volume and reverb.

Mine has not seen any time on stage or large halls, so it was always way more than we needed. I used it a a couple of backyard weddings, and in the 2010s my kids used with a digital piano for their piano lessons. Aside from from dust it has collected for a few years (I'm not playing any more, don't even have a synth) it is in excellent shape for an instrument I've owned for over 30 years.
