    The Madison I kinda understand. Beginning company, doesn't have a lot of money for elaborate design.

    The Budda though.....they actually made that shit their top tier amp. It's the most expensive amp they make. They looked at that Goonies pirate ship treasure chest looking shit and said "Yep...that's the ticket right there"

    Peavey was always utilitarian ugly. Except for the later Ultra variants, it seems.

    I dig the Jumanji Budda because effort.

    Interesting how a thread about "beautiful amp heads" became "the ugliest"...

    The Tone King Galaxy head isn't all that special, but I can't lie...i freakin' love it paired with the speaker cab.

    Yeah, it's definitely a "amp/cab that the S.O. will let me keep set up in the living room", and not a road-focused design.

    Peavey super festival line takes the cake for me.

    And the specs make it even better: tube preamp with a stereo 2x200 watt power amp. That's 8 KT88's and 4 transformers. Each power amp is stable at 2 ohm which means it's able to safely and efficiently power four 4 ohm cabs.

    Those things are so fucking ugly that I wouldn't even recognize them as amp heads without someone telling me, causing me to actually take a closer look.

    It just looks like shitty PA equipment from 1634
