Peavey Classic 30/112 Amplifier Review

If you are looking for an amp that is flexible enough to handle various musical genres while retaining excellent bluesy dynamics and tones, then this is the amp for you.

The Peavey Classic 30 is a popular workhorse tube amplifier, known for its versatile tones that can handle anything from ballad, to pop and hard rock. Its bluesier side is easily accessible by simply tweaking the settings! With some adjustments, you will find that the Classic 30 has a clean tone that breaks really well, and it has a raw and transparent overdrive that works great for blues riffs and leads.

At the core of the amp are three 12AX7 and four EL84 tubes that power a 12" Blue Marvel speaker. This configuration gives it its a vintage vibe that matches its classic looking exterior. The amp comes with a clean and lead channel, and has essential EQ controls for bass, middle and treble. The lead channel offers a Pre and Post Gain knob which gives you a variety of overdriven tones.

Since the Classic 30 is built in the USA by Peavey, it has proven to be reliable and roadworthy. It also offers a wealth of added features including reverb and boost. Last but not the least, the amp can easily accommodate your favorite pedals with its built-in effects loop.

Many bedroom blues wailers and weekend warriors agree that this is a great versatile amp for soulful and tasteful guitar playing. Retail Price: $650 | Get the latest price & reviews at Amazon.com
