    They were used in front of broadcast transmitters. Depending on the maintenance they've seen (or not seen) they can go from OK, to real bucket of $*^t.

    I've used them on things like 'bass' in a mixing situation, but after they'd seen more money in maintenance than they cost to buy.

    Other than that, all the controls are beneath a drop down cover, and will require a screwdriver to adjust. If you plan on owning the thing for a while, remove the cover and put knob caps on the adjustment pots (try not to lose the cover). It'll make life a bit easier. Chances are you won't be selling them anytime soon, as you will rarely ever get out of them what you have into them after maintenance.

    Hope this helps.
