I have been playing for over 20 years, and like everyone else, I have been through more gear than I would like to admit. However, I always seem to be drawn back to the ever reliable tube amp. I have had Fenders, Marshalls, a Tech 21, Gallien Krueger, etc. I have worked and experimented with guitar techs for an endless search for a great tube amp that will give me awesome tone. Well, my first amp ever is now my main amp, a Peavey. How ironic, eh? It's simple, if you are someone like me who plays a very large spectrum of music, you want something that can handle itself on its own, as well as, with modelers and effect processors. This amp does a phenomenal job of that. The clean is excellent, and when you start stomping on your effects it does them all justice. The lead channel is excellent, but not heavy, stick to your stomp boxes on the clean channel for that. The lead channel is as good or better than any Fender or Marshall. That's an absolute fact. Much better gain, more usable. I use the Classic 30 for rehersal, studio, jams, etc. Grab a Classic 50 for some more volume and tonal benefits, but the 30 should do you just fine. No separate EQ for each channel is a disappointment, but not fatal. No master volume can be overcome by adding a volume pedal in the loop. Stereo effects loop would have been nice, but it's only a 112 30 watter guys. No amp is perfect, that too is a fact, but the tonal quality, versatility, and bang for the buck make the Classic series a clear choice. Spend the left over money on some top shelf boutique type effects. Word of advice, any effects being run through the front end (input) of the amp, try to keep them true bypass (Ex. Dist/OD, Wah, Comp., etc). The effects through the loop should be high quality, but the true bypass factor doesn't weigh in as heavy. One final word of advice for those who need to mic or go in to the PA for bigger gigs. Buy a H&K Red Box Pro. After that, you are done. Anyone who tells you that the tubes and speaker need to be replaced to improve this baby is ridiculous, wait until they break (if that ever happens!!). It really is that good! Do not pass these amps up if you are looking for a tube amp. You may end your search here.

This amp gives you warm tube tone at a modest price. It also has great sounding reverb and overdrive.

The Greatest Amp Ever

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

this amp is so awsome. everybody brags about marshall and fender amps but this one is just as good. the clean channel is just like a fender amp and the distortion is amazing for any style. with my gibson sg plugged in this is one screaming amp. i also highly reccomend the analogman ds-1 pro pedal with this amp. they are a perfect match

Fantastic amp!

By MIke D-vgeLM

from Massachusetts

This is a great-sounding, versatile amp. It is perfect for blues/rock styles right out of the box; if you're a metal kind of player, this may not be the amp for you but it does respond well to distortion pedals. It's 30 watts, but it can go from very loud to bedroom volumes (all with great tone). It responded well to all of the guitars I've used with it - a strat w/ Texas specials, a Las Paul w/ P90s and even a 7-string. This is probably the best amp in the price range - it blows away the comparably price Fenders.

Great amp !!!

By lespaulman420

from Paris,FRANCE

I play metal and my main influences are:-Zakk wylde-Dimebag darrell-scott ian-Tom morelloAnd my goal is not to copy some superstars tone, its to create mine so i baught the classic 30 and man it blew me away.With a bit of knob-tweaking the distortion chanel on and a overdrive pedal in front of the amp to push it the destroy mode i had chunky-ass metal rhytme tone and great sustainThen role down the gain and you get a great bluesy tone and the clean chanel is really nice.It has an effects loop,reverb,two chanel and you can get a foot switch to go from clean to dirty and to switch reverb on/off !!! And best of all, for bigger gigs you can plug in any cabinet like a marshall 4X12 or something ,!!The only bad thing is that is that the map gets really hot and that you dont have two seperate eq's for each chanel.It also really fit pedal great ! You cabn put a distortion ^pedal oin front of it and it will sound great too !Two words : BUY IT !! (if you cant afford a mesa or a marshall ;-))

Awsome

This amp sounds great clean or distorted. It's also great for gigs even though it's only a 30 watt amp. It never gets drowned out by the rest of the band.

You get what you pay for.

By Ray-fvYtl

from East Kingston N.H.

I bought this amp, for my strat & SG, used to play them threw a JTM 45/W & 4X12 half stack. Left the music scene for about 10 years, Can't dial this amp in for the Blues/Rock sound, with out having it to loud for the house. You will need an overdrive stomp box. I bought a 50/W Mesa Boogie tube combo, much better amp, don't need the over drive for the sound I need, gave the Peavey to my son.

Classic 30 (Peavey)

By wardog-CrXt2

from San Diego

The classic series are probably the best guitar amps that Peavey ever made or will make. There is no active circuitry in the EQ system, it's pure tube, it cranks loud with sweet overdrive as well as good clean sound. I'm hoping that they make them in the 100watt 2x12 soon with independent channels instead of one channel sharing together. It's overall good for what it is.
