    Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

    after playing with a modded 212 version of this at a local juke joint i was blown away and was sold. i picked the 410 version as many reviews said it punched through the mix better than the 212 version. after really playing with it for just about a week i'm a happy camper, the more you turn if it up, the better it sounds. i haven't gotten the master volume much past 5 as that is PLENTY loud for just noodling around the house.

    clean channel is loud and clear. i didnt want a fender clean sound that is chimey to me. its just a well balanced warm and full sound. it can get punchy with the pots dimed so i roll the guitar controls back to dial it in. the presence adds a little more treble to my epiphone les paul and my strat sounds like a strat ought to.

    the lead channel has anything from just a little break up to an overdrive that you could use for hard rock. its defintely not a high gain amp but like others have mentioned, unless you play metal, you'll probably be ok. if you play metal, throw a stomp box into your signal chain. has a great bluesy lead tone.

    i'm coming from a marshall 8240 and while that amp has chorus and EQ for each channel, this amp is twice as loud with tons more tone. i dont find myself needing to dial each channel as i can just set my tone on my guitars - it sounds great as is. my guitars are an epiphone les paul with slash seymour duncans and my strat is a stock mexican fat strat. both sound great through this amp and has me finding new characteristics with tone and sound that i didnt think i could pull out of these guitars...

    highly recommended, with the price tag its a steal. if you just play in your bedroom, you might think about the 30 watt version. at low volumes you dont benefit from what this amp can do. if you gig often, this amp will serve you well when cranked. looks to be built tough and happy that its made here in USA.

    My Favorite

    By Jimmyjuju

    from Northeast

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

    I am sold on the tone. This is my favorite amp. It does have a lot of dials to fiddle with, but the sound is killer, both clean and overdriven. The four 10" speakers are the key to this amp. OK, now the bad news. If you want to transport this amp, you had better be a weightlifter with a good back and under 30 years old. When I bought it, the young fellow who worked at the music store lugged it about five feet, put it down, and went for a dolly. I picked it up and wrestled it out to the car. My son offered to help, but I was too proud and happy. It is heavy, and it needs more than a suitcase handle on top. I guess Peavey figured that no one would want to ever load in into a vehicle or carry it up stairs. But it's no worse to lug than a Fender Twin Reverb...
    This amp is packed with features. The tank reverb is wonderful.
    I have an older model which was used when I bought it. It appears to be bulletproof.
    You will probably lose about half your money if you buy it new and sell it later. But when you compair prices on other amps in its class, this is a good buy. Buy a good used one, if you can find one.

    best amp for the money

    By johnnyG-to4xH

    from michigan

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

    This is the last amp I will ever own. Simply put, you will never find a better sounding guitar amp. The 410's cut through everything and you will never be left in the mix again. It has a classic fender like sound for half the price. Plus enough volume to rip your face off. When I first used this amp I was worried about the volume as I had never gigged out with anything lower than 100 watts, but this thing has plenty, and doesnt loose its classic sound at higher levels. If your looking for the best, than go no further. Don't pass this one up.

    Awesome

    By Sloan Connerly

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

    I bought an older one of these used, and was very impressed. The clean channel on this amp is better than I've heard out of some amps that cost three times more. It's incredibly rich, and warm. You can hook up cheap pick ups to it, and it sounds incredible. The tubes were old when I got it, but I've been cranking the amp and had it in all conditions over three years, and they're still running strong. This amp is an excellent purchase for anyone. It's as loud as you'll ever want to be, it has great tone, and you can do anything with it. The price tag is incredible. Peavey has rolled out some crap for sure, but this, is hands down the best tube amp in the price range. My only complaint to Peavey is that the amp doesn't look near as sick as the older models. But that aside, trust me BUY IT NOW. You won't be dissapointed. If you're ready to upgrade the old solid state, without going broke, this is your amp.

    Not just a blues amp

    By Chalant

    from Red Bluff, CA

    Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

    I'd heard horror stories of how the distortion channel on this amp is terrible, but I assure you, play it for a few months and let the tubes break in. The tone on this thing is great! If you still don't like it replace the output tubes with some JJ's. The only true negatives for me is that the effects loop does NOT work with amp models and distortion pedals, but plugging direct is just fine (if you have decent pedals). And the footswitch is a piece of crap too (but affordably replaceable). Other than that outstanding amp for a good price.

    Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

    I bought this as a level 2 used. only thing worng with it was the reverb tank bag had come loose. I just re-installed the screws and I was in business. This amp makes any guitar you play through it, sound great! LOTS of Volume, great tone and Peavey quality. This amp will rival a marshall half stack. It is a tad heavy, but that is the price you pay for quality and tone. I was VERY suprised at the amount of bass and bottom end this am has for being a 4x10 This one is a keeper.

    Great Amp

    By Ashstrat07

    from Ohio

    Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

    This amp has master volume... that's all you need to know. You can get any tube sound you want out of it. My only knock, is that the tweed is easy to rip/bang up. The dirty channel is nice, and your tubes have a nice fan to keep them from getting too hot. I really dig this amp and will never get rid of it.

      Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

      This amp is simply amazing. For the price you will not find a better sounding more versatile amp than this. I have heard boutique amps that cost 3x as much as the Peavey Classic 50 410 that don't sound nearly as good. The sound it produces impresses me more and more each time I use it. The clean sound is warm, round and punchy. It is not a Fender sound for sure but it sounds very very nice. The overdrive if dialed in correctly sounds very warm, rich and full of sustain.

      The 410 speaker configuration give the amp a big, full sound that can fill a room with ease. The amp is made in America and is powered by good ol' fashioned tubes which explains why the amp sounds so good and is so reliable. This thing is built like a tank and rarely breaks down. Read the reviews yourself and you will find that people who own it rarely have reliability issues.

      Some have complained that the amp is too heavy (63 pounds) but I found a solution to that problem and simply bought a portable cart to lug it around and it works perfectly. In my opinion the small inconvenience of lugging a heavy amp around is worth getting a great sound and reliability from this amp.

      I've had mine for 18 years and will never sell it. It is the best sounding amp I have owned. I keep two guitar amps, the Classic 50 and a solid state Tech 21 Trademark 60 which has almost as good a sound at half the weight. Love both of them and would highly recommend both. Clean classic tube sound from both, even though the Tech 21 is solid state. If you can afford two amps, go with these two.

      Best combo Peavey has ever made

      By PVholic

      from South Florida

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

      I still have the first year, 1991 model. I have changed tubes at least 5 times in the past 17 years. This amp does it all for me. If you're playing Classic 50's, 60's and 70's music, this is your amp. Metal heads, you'll need to look somewhere else. This amp has never been in the shop either. I have several tube amps, and this one gets the gig every time. It's just that good. You won't have the tube related problems you may hear about the Classic 30 amps because the tubes are not inside the chassis out of the speaker blast area, so rattling EL84's will not ever be a problem in this amp. Go try one, you'll be taking it home.

        Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

        This amp Does rival the full half stack of any breed. If you want to make this sing, put it on top of a 4 x 12 cab and run both the 4 10s and the cab .... very well balanced to do this. Run a MXR phase and delay through the effects loop and the overdrives and compression in the front. This amp LOVES pedals.

        It has so much power and thump, I just love it. It is heavy and does heavy rock well. I run in stereo and use an orange Dark terror on the other end with a closed 4 x 10 cab the Peavey did it all but I wanted a different tone on side B.

        I have the old tweed version that looks like a Bassman from the front, I even took the Peavey sign off and put the Bassman tag I found at rehearsal.... This amp kicks bum. I have owned them all and this has all that you need. Get a used one and make sure you have good tubes, set the pre and post 8-10 for your heavy tones and I like the bass in that range also, to show the balls this amp has.

        Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

        I tried one of these at a local store, using 2 Ibanez guitars the same as I have at home, and realized that the Peavey Classic 50/410 can make even a cheap/POS guitar sound like a high dollar signature model. I'd tried a ValveKing 112 before this one, and I probably wouldn't even use 1/2 of what it's capable of (I don't really need a distorted sound), but I used ALL of the Classic 50/410, and then some...all 3 switching positions on the guitars. I could go buy a First Act guitar, put a piece of tape over the name on the headstock, and nobody would know it's a cheap guitar, playing through this combo!

        Fantastic Tone!

        By cdntac

        from Toronto area

        Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

        Recently I came across a Classic 50 410 in a store --- something that surprised me since I have never been able to find one. The tone I can get with from my ?76 Gibson ES-175T (thinline) through the 410 is amazing. The Peavey provides a heavy sound with much better clarity than my Marshall MG100DFX--- even with the pre-gain on 9. There?s really no comparison. Put the cord into the "bright", set the pre-amp to 9, the post to 5 and the main volume to 5 and you've got a perfect '70's classic rock sound to make you sound just like Nugent (who uses this and the 212 as his stage amp (miked). Pedals? Don't need 'em! It has enough gain to suit my needs. I've found that at lower volumes (ie: attempting low volume practice levels) that the amp doesn't sound as good. It's meant to be played at a mid-level or higher volume IMO. As far as features go....I don't need many. Just the gain, tone and volume knobs are all the I desire. Quality? That's a hard thing to give a rating on. Everything seems fine to me. Value? Great tone at a great price. Overall? This amp fits my needs perfectly. I couldn't ask for more from it.

        Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

        Ive owned this amp for about a year and a half now and Ive replaced the tubes twice but, im hard on my equipment. It traveled all over the country in tons of different weather conditions. I definately recommend this amp to anyone. I play blues and classic rock and it is perfect. The tone is awesome. I also owned a Fender Bassman, (which is what this amp is modeled after) and there is little difference. I would never pay for a fender above this thing again. Its friggin cheap for the tone. Give it a shot. It is very heavey, but its worth it.

        Simply amazing

        By Mick-N-wik

        from Peterborough uk

        Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

        While breaking back into the world of valve amps and having used fenders of all types ( vintage as well as modern ) i found myself limited to a budget and bought the 410 second hand off e bay ... its cool bassman looks and the fact it had a hotrodded drive section such as my previous hot rod deluxe was a big attraction.Up until i plugged into the amp i'd only read the reviews from other users and heard demo's on you tube and was under the impression it would fit the bill for a while and that in the back of my mind i'd still have the hankering for real fender tone ... How wrong could i be !! After getting acquainted with this amp i doubt i'll ever go back to a fender , as everything from classic clean blues tone to gary moore blues drive is there . The only downside is that the reverb is a little weak but the addition of a delay pedal should help matters no end . Its reassuringly heavy and the construction is excellent .

        This thing sounds great. I wish it had a footswitch to toggle the effects loop, or separate eqs for the two channels, but it's alright. The eq is very balanced, not hard to find a good setting for OD and clean. Reverb sounds great. Rugged as heck, loves pedals. I can't stop playing it.

        Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

        I tried a lot of amps and it came down to reasonably priced tube combos that were fairly available. I play blues-rock clean and dirty mostly with a strat. I found I liked the Fender hot rods or blues, Classic crates series such as V or palamino and the peavey classic series. I really didn't like any others or they sounded similar for way more money. From within this group it came down to mostly price. Maybe I'd pay a few more bucks for the fender name and its "more drive" feature but then again maybe a few more $ for the peavey ruggedness. Some of the other tube amps I hated such as the PV valveking. Still don't know why. Well The classic 50 was at a sale price so I got it and love it. I put it up against Hotrod devilles all the time and am never sorry I got it. Probably the last amp I will ever need unless they make a 3 watt version.

        Never Had Better

        By Jonas Reilley

        from Oklahoma

        Comments about Peavey Classic 50/410 Tube Combo Amp:

        Throughout my career I've played on numerous amps, including a Fender Deluxe, a Vox AC15, and Peavey's own Delta Blues 115. But when I stumbled across this masterpiece I was immediately and forever sold. The 410 cab arrangement is perfect for highlighting the brilliant mid range tone that the EL84's produce. It's clean is crystal clear and beautiful to the ear. The spring reverb is the best I've ever heard, and works amazingly when paired with a giga delay or another comparable pedal. The clean channel works amazing with true bypass pedals. I haven't used the lead channel too much, as the overdrive I get from combining a fulltone fulldrive2 and a MXR super comp is (for me) a perfect sound. I will never use another live amp...period.*side note...wish it had a tremelo feature.

        Nice Chimey clean tone... beautiful sound. the overdrive sings. cranked up all the way it produces a very nice hard rock tone. Love it. The reverb is perfect. This kicks the crap out of amps twice the price. If your on the fence, buy this. You wont be disappointed.
