Vintage style...modern versatility..

By stratopaul

from Hannover/Germany (Scorpion's hometown!!)

I own this nice 4x10" amp for some months now... it really sucks to carry it due to the heavy weight (especially in it's flightcase...). But when you turn it on - forget about all the obstacles...It sounds so sweet but assertive anyway.... it is a real good investment if you are looking to have some vintage-style sounds but also want to have that more moderne gain......This amp replaces my good old Fender Pro Reverb Combo which will be played solely at home to take care of that 70ies veteran.There is just ONE thing that really sucks: the reverb unit sounds really crappy compared with the Fender's unit. I guess that's a point of interest for real freaky tonehunter's....the "working musician" can accept this...my guitars sound good all the same when played through this amp....and that counts....

awesome amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I got this amp about a year ago and I've been rocking with it since. I bought it used and there was a problem with some wiring so the power tubes kept messing up on me. However, it only cost me ten bucks to fix. So it wasn't too bad. This amp plays really well. The tone is insane when it's cranked. However, at low volumes, the tone of the clean is pretty weak. I've gigged with this amp a few times and it's been pretty well. It hasn't failed on me yet. It may be only 50 watts, but it is powerful enough to be heard over drums. My biggest problem with this amp is lugging it around. It weighs like 70 lbs. or something. It's a pain to carry around, but it's worth it cause of how good it sounds.

Greatest Blues/Classic Rock Amp

By Rob Smith

from Chi-Town, IL

I've owned my Classic 50-410 since 1994. It's the best blues amp out there. It's got great clean tone, and a decent lead circuit also, although I use a Tube Screamer for distortion.At the time I was contemplating my purchase, I looked at a bunch of different amps, and this one had what the others didn't. It is also one of the best bangs for the buck!If it's good tones you're after, then this amp should make your short list, without a doubt!Oh yeah, this baby's heavy. Do like I did and install a set of casters.

This is the amp all others are measured against.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

What can I say? Marshalls are known for distortion, and Fenders are known for their bright trebly cleans. This amp combines both a great fuzz and a nice deep rich clean sound, making it suitable for jazz, blues, and rock. The dials go up to 12, which, as you may guess, is even higher than 11! And it sounds great at any volume. I am glad I got this amp. Solidstate just doesn't compare.

Underrated amp that performs

By lison586

from Orange, CA

I?ve owned my Classic 50/4x10 w/15E cab for just about 12 years now. the 15E extension cab is absolutely necessary. Without the 15E, the tone comes off somewhat thin (after comparison.) Fender Groove tubes worked for me for years but recently retubed with a matched quad of JJ EL84's and three ECC83S's from Eurotubes. It?s like a beast reborn! Grand clean tones as well as a stunning, warm overdrive with an earlier break up as opposed to the Groove tubes. And it?s appreciably louder now (not necessarily a good thing in my garage.) Considered upgrading the Blue Marvels but decided to hold off for now. This amp has been knocked around and it shows but I haven?t had it fail me yet.

Heaven in every way but wait and price

By Levi Kitchen-v4U6h

from Kilgore, TX

See all my reviews

This amp is the best thing that ever happened to me. Trust me, there's a babe out there for you, but this one's mine. the only problem is that there is a 3-4 second delay on everything that comes out of the speaker from when you play it...but as long as you don't play with a band, or with music or something, then that doesn't really matter. this amp kicked me.

great amp

By ponchee

from atlanta, ga

this amp's great. i was test playing this with some of the fender amps around this price range but i fell for this one because of the more rounded tone. the only concern i have with it is that it doesn't have a separate equalizer between the clean and distortion channels.

Versatility at it's finest

By Barry Mattern

from Fargo, ND

I've owned this amp for about a year now, and I'm still loving it more and more every time I turn it on. It sounds so smooth and rich. The clean is nice and creamy, not brittle like some tube amps. What's really nice is that the amp sounds just a little different each time you plug in a different guitar. The guitar defines the sound of the amp, not the other way around. Mini-humbuckers give it that classic feel, and open-coils give it that modern bite. I don't have a bad thing to say except that it definately gives you a work-out to carry this thing around, but the sound makes up for it ten-fold. Love it, love it, love it!

Honest value, decent amp

By Chuck-fbbIw

from Valdosta, GA

Bought this amp after owning a long line of Peavey amplifiers, and I'm truly a fan of Peavey's workhorse products. This is a great amplifier for anybody wanting tube tone and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. However, it's not suited for all types of music. While it has sparkling highs and a nice thick crunch, it's open back cabinet design doesn't lend itself to a lot of low end. If you have a spare 4X12 sitting around, it'll run it and the onboard 4X10s. But by itself, it'll resonate far too hard for the cabinet when pushing heavy gain from an outboard source. That is really the only problem I have with it...cool feature of this amp is that all the knobs go to 12...Spinal Tap anyone?

the best

By mongo-JR3sR

Own the 2x12 version of this amp. it is a heavy sucker to pack around, but always outshines the rest. put some v30 celestions in it and it can't be touched.

Great tube amp for country, blues and classic rock

By LittleCatG

from Bend, OR

I've owned a Classic 50/410 for 3 years. The sweet, warm clean channel, excellent reverb and the great overdrive channel make this one of the best gigging amps around. The drive channel nails that classic rock mojo, but it's a very versatile amp and is also a great sounding blues or country amp. I compared it directly with a Fender Hot Rod Deville with my Strat. I liked the smoother, rounder clean tones of the Peavey and the drive channel totally outshined the Fender.While the clean and drive channels don't have separate EQ controls, this is not an issue for me. I simply dial in the clean tone I want and the overdrive still sounds great. If I need more variety, I use my secret weapon...my guitar's tone controls!I did like the lead channel much better after installing a matched set of JJ tubes...I like how the drive channel puts you in Brian May/Tom Scholz territory...rich, creamy overdrive, not buzzy high gain shred, but smooth, thick and sweet, just right for classic rock and blues...and today's country.I hadn't had a tube amp for about 20 years before this one...I'll never go back to solid state. I love the features of this amp...the standby switch, master volume, separate volume controls for the clean and drive channels, effects loop and I like how the tubes are well protected.I haven't had so much as a pop or crackle from my amp with fairly steady use for three years. It's durable, solid and is the best bang for the buck tube amp on the market.

great amp

By Tim-FbLQO

from Duncan Falls, Ohio

owned it for over 4 years now. no problems at all with it. 50 watts is more than enough, hurts your ears after 4-5 on volume. only complaint is the weight. but loud and clean sound, either on clean or super distortion.

Awesome Amp!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This amp is a gigging musician's dream. 4 speakers gives it mad output, it has great all tube tone, and actually isn't all that terrible to carry (bearhug it, and get a hand under it). I have played on Fender amps, and I just don't like them as much, GET THIS AMP!

Killer Amp

By Stratman64

from Lillington, North Carolina

I have used and hauled this amp around for six years. It has a great sound that takes me back to the days of the black faced tube amps. This thing really puts out those blues licks I'm so fond of, and meets my southern rock style of play.

First Tube Amp

By Stratozyck

from Alabama

See all my reviews

Ive owned only solid state amps before this one - I had a Marshall Cabinet/head, Fender Stage 160... This is probably just the reaction to going from solid state to tube.. but wow. Solid state amps should be illegal. They are a complete farce. When I got this amp, it was like everything I was doing before was... a lie. Hendrix said its all about tone, and the man was right.I am sure there are better tube amps out there, but for the money its a great deal. I looked at a lot of tube amps, and this one was a fantastic deal. Marshall tube amps are pricey, as are Fender's. The Fender Twin Reverb doesnt even do distortion w/o a pedal. Gripes about it: Which it had a bright switch as opposed to two inputs, BUT, you can plug in two guitars at the same time. It doesnt have all the digitial effects my Fender Stage 160, but the full tone more than makes up for that. I plugged my Korg Guitar processor into it and got every tone imaginable. I am seriously in love with this amp.
