When I had my 240V / 30A circuit installed for the SB-220, the electrician asked whether I wanted a 3-prong or 4-prong outlet.  I chose 4-prong since that seems to be the modern standard.  That meant replacing the 3-prong plug and power cable on the amp with a 4-prong, though the center tap isn't used on this amp so the neutral wire isn't actually connected to anything in the amp.

 Yep I remember a dryer I bought in the late 70's was wired that way, 240 to 
 the heating element and the motor and the rest right to a ground lug. Since 
 my current dryer, a 10 year old Kenmore, also uses a 3 wire cord/plug it may 
 be the same and I'll look the next time I pull off the back panel to vacuum 
 and collect loose change (-:
 Im certainly not going to sleep over it as millions of dryers didnt kill  people.
