Peavey Classic 30 Tweed

Tube Combo

The 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" 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.

Ein Klassiker unter den Röhrenamps
Ibanez77, 21.10.2009
Der Peavey Classic 30 wurde mein erster richtiger Vollröhren-Verstärker und erreichte mich gut verpackt.

Die Bedienung sieht auf den ersten Blick übersichtlich und einfach aus, also Gitarre einstöpseln und los.

Der 1. Kanal ist der Clean Kanal und macht schonmal richtig Spaß, selbst bei hohen Lautstärken bleibt er clean und macht ordentlich Druck. Durch die 3-Band-Klangregelung und den Hall-Regler kann man den Sound gut variieren. Der 2. Kanal ist der Leadkanal und man erreicht hier rockige Sounds mit guter Zerre. Von Blues über Bluesrock bis hin zu Hard-Rock ist alles drin, nur Metal-Sounds schafft er nicht. Dafür ist er aber auch nicht gebaut worden.

Die 2 Kanäle sind fußschaltbar (Fußschalter ist nicht dabei!) und der Amp besitzt einen Effekt-Einschleifweg.

Außerdem verträgt er sich gut mit diversen Pedalen (Distortion/Overdrive), die vor den Amp geschaltet werden.

Klanglich überzeugt der Amp und ist mit seinen 30Watt verdammt laut und reicht locker für den Proberaum und auch für kleinere Gigs.

Das einzig negative was ich zu diesem tollen Verstärker sagen kann ist das Peavey-typische "Röhrenrasseln", welches bei bestimmten gespielten Noten immer wieder auftritt. Schade das es immer noch eine Kinderkrankheit bei dieser Peavey-Classic-Serie geblieben ist.

Alles in allem ein guter Vollröhren-Amp zu einem vernünftigen Preis.

Avis peavey classic 30
Nicolas507, 24.09.2011
Premier ampli tout lampe, après avoir jouer sur un transistor. La différence de qualité du son est assez impressionnante. Même si cet ampli est a la base fait pour jouer du blues, il est très polyvalent, je joue du rock assez agressif ( pas du metal, hein ^^ ), et il se marie très bien avec une musique comme celle ci, malgré ce qu'on pourrait croire. C'est un ampli très puissant, qui couvre un batteur facilement. C'est un très bon ampli. très polyvalent, avec un son chaud que j'adore. Je le conseille vivement !

Un clasico de blues y rock
Javier149, 20.10.2014
Un ampli de guitarra de dos canales con reverb a muelles, EQ, FX y boost tiene un sonido de altura entre amplis de su categoría, gustos aparte, por supuesto. En mi opinión el sonido, en parte por el cono de 12 blue marvel que lleva (característico) le da este toque rockero vintage que aun conservando nitidez en el canal limpio hace que según volumen y configuración de la guitarra sature antes que otros. O sea el limpio más sucio que he visto. El canal sucio es fabuloso con un range que va desde saturados suaves y cremosos hasta over drive grueso y sucio sin llegar a extremos de heavy.
En contra: algo ruidoso en relación a otros amplis de esta categoría, se calienta mucho mas que otros, y a mi gusto se le echa en falta una entrada de brillo y que viniera con pedal footswitch.
En definitiva un ampli muy bueno sin duda y a un precio realmente competitivo.
