Peavey Classic 30 Tweed

Tube ComboThe name Peavey used to stand for very inexpensive amps of average quality. In the interim, however, they have since worked their way up into the higher echelons of the amp class system - which is most recently evident with the specially tailor-made for Eddie Van Halen 5150 amp. The Peavey Classic Series of all-tube amps have become some of the most popular tube amps ever, which is partly still due to the reasonable price (for tube amps), but also due to the really good sound of their components.

The Classic 30 Tweed delivers 30 watts from 4x EL84 power tubes to a 12" Blue Marvel speaker, which is reminiscent of the classic amps (such as Fender or Vox), and the sound is on point. As well as the traditional clean channel this amp also has a modern lead channel with a master volume. No wonder the Classic 30 itself has almost become a classic.

Peavey Classic 30

Neil Nina, 11.03.2014
Great sound, Used for live situations, Stock valves had to be changed after a week of purchase. I had alot of problems with this between Biasing, Tube Changes and fuses. Its a pitty though as its a beautiful sounding amp. I actually prefer it over a Fender hotrod. I did however buy the first batch of them so i'd imagine by now all the issues are sorted out.

A classic among the Rhenamps

Ibanez77, 21.10.2009
The Peavey Classic 30 became my first real all-tube amp and reached me well packaged.

The operation looks at first glance clear and simple, so plug in the guitar and go.

The first channel is the clean channel and it's really fun, even at high volumes it stays clean and makes a lot of pressure. The 3-band tone control and the reverb control allow you to vary the sound well. The 2nd channel is the lead channel and you get here rocking sounds with good Zerre. From blues to blues rock to hard rock, everything is in it, only metal sounds he does not manage. But he has not been built for that.

The 2 channels are footswitchable (footswitch is not included!) And the amp has an effect loop-in path.

He also gets along well with various pedals (Distortion / Overdrive), which are switched in front of the amp.

Sonically convinced the amp and is damn loud with its 30 watts and is enough for the rehearsal room and for smaller gigs.

The only negative thing I can say about this great amp is the Peavey-typical "tube rattle", which occurs again and again with certain played notes. Too bad that it still remained a childhood disease in this Peavey Classic series.

All in all, a good all-tube amp for a reasonable price.
