So I found this Samson S63 while out pawn-shop trolling and decided, “yeah, I could stroll off with you” and did. It’s a six-channel power amp with onboard mixer and EQ (three-knob per channel and 10-band graphic for overall), 10 years old, in good working order. It’s missing a knob, but that’s what guitar picks are for. It also has a reverb effects box onboard that you can cut in on a per-channel basis. (It’s variable per channel, which is a neat trick. Voice smoothing much? Oh, much.) It also has separate monitor mixing and monitor outs, tho’ they aren’t amplified. Those’ll be handy later.

I wish it had a headphone pre-amp and I still need a loudspeaker, but it’s a start.
