Default Old Amp, Still Working?

My neighbour has got a seemingly old tube -amp, that has not been in use for 30 years or so.
Is it possible that it will spring to life after just standing around for 30 years? Or doesn't the tubes last that long?

I haven't got a picture but it appears to be complete, nothing broken. It reads Quad-Amp on the side of it.

Best Regards,
Christian V

Just give it a try, and let us now if it works. Electrolytic capacitors wil become old and should be replaced every ten years. My Quad 405 power amp works well since 1978.
