Peavey Classic 50/410 Reviews

4.5 stars based on 7 customer reviews
  • from November 14, 2011

    Blows away most boutique amps that cost 3x as much

    Snobby boutique amp owners listen up. This amp is simply amazing. For the price you will not find a better sounding, better built, more versatile amp than this one. The clean channel on this amp is warm, round and punchy and the reverb is rich and lush. The overdrive channel can get you that classic Marshall sound and with a high output humbucker and the gain turned up you can get some pretty thick, beefy distortion. This amp is so responsive as well. It is built like a tank and is built in the USA. Look all around and you will not find one negative thing said about this amp. The only thing to remember is this amp weighs a lot (62 pounds) so if you get it you might want to consider putting wheels on it or getting a foldable cart to lug it around.

    The amp I use to judge all others

    I have been playing for almost 51 years. My second amp, bought new in 1965, was a Fender Deluxe-Reverb(original, not the re-issue). I soon replaced the 12" Jensen Special design with a D-120 JBL. That was my amp—I it used to judge all others. I'd owned several amps including many Peavey's but held on to that little amp, and re-tubed it so many times. In the early 80's I started using Peavey guitars and amps—even visited the factory many times. In 1991, I was earnestly waiting for the first Classic 50/410 to hit South Florida. I bought it on the spot. I took it home and, believe it or not, sold the DR. I haven't regretted that decision at all. I have seven Peavey amps and almost twenty Peavey guitars—as 'I only play Peavey or I don't play' is absolutely true. My now 18-year old Classic 50 is still my first choice. It has not once been in a repair shop, nor has it ever failed me. It is the amp I now judge all others with."

    Blow Down the Doors!!

    I have been a customer of Peavey Amps since the '70s. I play rock/Pop and fusion music. I started off with a 4x12 "Musician" in 72. I now own a late 90's 4x10 Classic 50, and it's the best and most versatile amp (without spending thousands) I have ever owned!! Period!! Out of all the Twins, Deluxe's, Marshalls.....I could go on. Just buy this amp!! I played it in the store with the same great tones at the same volumes! Killer Diller tone!! The 4x10's give it a tight, fat tone that delights the ear with sweet tube saturation. Rock on Peavey!!

    Fat or Thin dial it in

    I have been playing guitar since the early 60's and have had more amps than I can remember. My first a Gretsch, then Fender, Vox, Marshall, Johnson and so on.

    In 93 I borrowed a Classic 50/410 to sub for a night and went out and bought my own the next day. This amp will give you just about any tone and rivals any 65 Deluxe or Twin I have ever played. Takes a little tweaking but you can crank it up and chill an obnoxious drummer in a heartbeat, the capability is there. I now have 2 1992 Classic 50/410's and as with previous reviewers, have never had either one in the shop, not once. Any performing artist will tell you that's money in the bank.

    covers a lot of territory

    From the looks and the configuration, one might expect a "vintage Fender Bassman" sound, and yes, it's possible to get it from this amp. There's some clean, sweet tones to be had, and a lot of guitars (single coil or humbuckers) will benefit from the full response this amp has to offer.

    But don't sell it short -- the Classic 50/410 can hold its' own whether you're doing jazz, rock, blues, Top 40/covers or country. This will handle almost everything except hard core metal. Even then, it's LOUD! It gets louder still with the extra speaker out jack.

    Invest in a good set of casters, or get a hand truck; it's a heavy beast. Other than that, I've got nothing against it.
