One thing though, I don't know anything about this amp, no date, nothing. It was manufactured by Pro Amp, Braintree, Essex, UK. The serial number (T 2974 BR 21) on the Celestions seems to indicate 1983 (according to Celestion , select chassis date codes in lower box). The serial number of the amp itself is C4 83/22. Google
yields very little, so my question is what year was it built and, although I don't wanna sell it, what might it be worth?

Amazing amp. Designed by John Cooper and had it's production height in the early 1980s. The ProAmps were built as copies of other great sounding amps. The Viper is a copy of the Musicman an as such uses finest components and has a sound to almost die for. They were built in Braintree, Essex and at the height of their success employed around 40 people had wiring/assembling these beautiful amps.
You will never hear a bad word about their power and tone. Players lucky enough to have one often prefer them to Fender and Vox. I have a Viper and really love it.
