probably pretty different than my 60's sunn, they were making them out of hi-fi dyna kits around then. by the 80's sunn had sold, exchanged or acquired a couple times and this series was a far cry from their original engineering concepts. but the good news is, this amps are still fairly desired or sought after, i know that when i researched my sunn before i bought it i read articles saying kurt cobain used 80's SS sunn combos with angled speaker enclosures on some of his recordings. he used everything though.

anyway, the 80's sunn SS amps weren't the same in anyway of classic sunn amps like are scene on Woodstock footage. but they are still quite usable and very retro and cool looking. for 150, if i wanted something like that... i would go for it. good deal.

my sunn handles pedals very well. dunno about a SS one.

its an SS amp the clean will sound amazing no matter what, as for pedals, alot of pedals sound a tad thin through SS amps. ive used ss sunn equipment, its more middle of the road than anything.
