For most small- to medium-sized venues, 30 watts is all you need to be heard - especially if your combo amp is miked. Footswitchable channels give you a wide tonal range to play with, and a speaker output for an extension speaker cabinet makes it easy to expand your rig. It can be hard to find a combo amplifier that's adept at many musical styles while still being practical for the average musician, but the Peavey Classic 30 112 nails it.

And the reverb is even switchable with the included footswitch.

What a sound

This is my first all tube amp and boy did it just blow me away. I play mostly blues and the tone on this thing was exactly what I was looking for. Its also got the mojo to get down and dirty. Even at just 30 watts this amp can crank out some sound. It has an awesome clean channel as well as a more than acceptable lead channel. Hit the boost button and you are all set for some serious rock and roll. And as always, Mike Arango was a very patient and great help in making my purchase decision.

Took me by surprise!

I had purchased a 100watt 2x12 tube amp that was Chinese made recently, and the darn thing kept blowing the power tubes, at simple practice levels! So after 2 trips back to Sweetwater for repair I asked if I could just get something else that was the same price. To my surprise, they said "Absolutely! Your satisfaction is our main concern, try out something else in the price range and we will see what we can do!" I didnt want another over-seas made amp. Ive gone down that road and its filled with hit and miss quality, and let downs. This was the only USA made tube amp I could find in the same price range as the one I had got. So I pulled the trigger and said I wanted this one. They swapped me outright with NO problems! Best customer service in the music gear industry today! Now on to the amp. The clean channel is sweet as honey, with plenty of chime and depth. And the drive channel is smooth and classic. But it does get a very heavy saturation. The only downfall of this amp is also one of its strengths. Its simplicity. Without a presence, and other major tone shaping controls, the usual LOW/MID/HI controls kind of dont let this amp get past a bluesy classic rock amp. Which is fine! is does those tones with absolute flying colors. But as a studio Guitarist, I was hoping to have something that could even get into the heavy rock genre as well. My solution: I threw an MXR 10-Band EQ pedal into the effects loop. It tightened the lows, cut out the heavy mids, and sculpted the highs. The result was that it turned that heavy saturated gain onto a fine tuned heavy distortion that was PERFECT for the heavier rock styles I play. (i.e. 3 Doors Down, Creed, ect.) And the Blue Marvel speaker gets a lot of bad reviews. But I think most people dont understand it. Its the kind of speaker that needs to be seriously PUSHED to sounds its best. And I am talking at least halfway up on the volume. The muddy/mooshy sound leaves and its like the speaker opens up and comes alive! So in short, its an amp that when worked with properly it can deliver just about any style of sound you can want. Its super portable, and RIDICULOUSLY loud! The sound is on par with other high end amps I have owned or used. So if you are a blues, classic rock, and country player this amp will fill all of your needs and sound beautiful doing it. It you play those styles, but also like it on the mean and heavy side too, pair this up with an MXR 10-Band EQ in the effects loop and sculpt your tone, then sit back and be amazed! And best of all, you have the assured quality of an American made amplifier!

GREAT AMP!

You can't go wrong with this amp. It can be used as a daily amp for anyone and beginners all the way to experts will recognize the clean, blues tones from the Peavey Classic. It seems like EVERYONE has a story about owning a Peavey Classic, and honestly most people talk about selling theirs and regretting it. Do yourself a favor, buy it and hold on to it, because it truly is a classic! It has a rich warmth and would make for a GREAT daily home amp, as well as a small/med gig performer. I would recommend to anyone!

Very happy with amp

There are just some many tones you can get with this amp. It has a great clean channel an dirty channel which is hard to find on just one amp. It's a good amp for rock and blues, get a good pedal an play some metal also. I love the sound of humbuckers with this amp more so than single coils, but every one has there own taste. The Peavey footswitch works the reverb switch an from normal to lead channels but not the boost. EL 84s tubes are great to. Play one give Sweetwater a call an be happy for getting an amp this good for under a grand.

Amazing, Affordable Tone

This amp is as good sounding as it is sturdy. It has a basic spring reverb and two awesome sounding channels. By far the best value for a tube amp.

Sweetwater Advice

Peavey Classic 30 II

The Classic 30's second channel proved fabulously adaptable to different guitars, pickups and effects. From Gibson and Seymour Duncan humbuckers to a mid-'60 Epiphone dog-ear P-90, and a pedalboard equipped with compressor, overdrive, phase shifter, vibrato, and delay, the second channel still had the headroom to convey nuance and color without getting buzzy or muddy. ...
