    This amp is so lound for just 30 watts. Set the voumle on 6 which is half way an hit the boost button on it an hang on. You get the tones of the 60s or any year with this amp. Play with the knobs an see what you get. My PRS LP an Fender sounds good on it. Best of all MADE IN THE U.S.A

    I owned this amp for 2 years and could never get the tone I was looking for, even with a tube and speaker swap. Clean channel sounds ok but I play mostly rock and the overdrive on this amp is very harsh with the gain turned up. It also has a nasty midrange honk that I didn't care for. A lot of people love this amp, but not me.

      This amp is loud and sounds original. Anywhere from jazz to metal this amp can do it. It took a short time to work in the blue marvel. I'm keeping this amp stock. I see no use in doing any mod because it sounds so good.

        Comments about Peavey Classic 30 112 30W 1x12 Tube Combo Amp:

        Peaveys are the most underrated amp today. They are a better value than other amps of the same type. I got rid of my Fender Twin Reverb, and picked up a Classic 30 and Classic 50. I also have a Classic 100 head for bigger venues. Excellent for Rock, Jazz, and Blues. Obviously, without pedals, it is not for Metal.

            Comments about Peavey Classic 30 112 30W 1x12 Tube Combo Amp:

            The Classic 30 sounds great at any volume but I can't think of another amp in this price range that has such sweet distortion even at bedroom levels. You can get the bright, brittle sounds the guy in the video gets, but the Classic 30 is capable of much warmer, fuller tone than that. Certainly as good sounding and more versatile than a Fender amp at this price. Had mine for years and still love it.

              This is my go to amp. I have the peavey butcher and a budda superdrive 18 but I always find my self playing my classic 30 its small portable sounds awesome its the perfect lil amp for takeing to jam sessions' practice' studio use' and home use. I can get every sound from country'classic'blues'and 80's rock the only thing it won't do is metal but hey its called the classic 30 for a reason classic tones. Buy one you won't regret it.

              Great amp for the money! Peavey gives you an all American-Made tube amp with 4 EL-84's and some great reverb. I particularly liked how the cross-beam on back was thick & sturdy. My only complaint was that I had to return it due to the reverb tank being unscrewed from the base of the amp. It actually was stuck on the back of the speaker magnet. I've heard about this being an issue from others before as well, so please be aware. I could have just screwed it in, but I decided to return it and might email Peavey. Still, it's a nice amp regardless.

                This amp is a great value. I am very impressed with the entire Peavey Classic Line. I now own three Peavey amps. I used to own several Fender amps, but the newer Fenders do not compare with these Classic Peaveys. The Fenders sound ice-pick trebley. The Peaveys are very versatile. Rock, Blues, Jazz. This is not a Metal Amp, or a Worship amp--whatever that is.

                    With this amp, Hartley Peavey has been true to his commitment to give the musician quality gear at a reasonable price. These amps are excellent and at least half the price of what other amp companies would charge. Easily loud enough to gig with. Very well built and Made in the USA. Excellent tone in all departments.

                    This amp is so lound for just 30 watts. Set the voumle on 6 which is half way an hit the boost button on it an hang on. You get the tones of the 60s or any year with this amp. Play with the knobs an see what you get. My PRS LP an Fender sounds good on it. Best of all MADE IN THE U.S.A
