Maybe not a weird story, but when I ordered some Mesa Boogie branded power tubes, I got another free pair of power tubes in the same box. I wasn't going to argue, hahaha.

Chances are there being two Seventy-80's in it. The first cab I bought was a Blackstar HTV-212 (before I knew the opinions of the members of GG&A concerning Blackstar) and it had Seventy-80's in it.
