King Loudness's review"Poor man's Fender"

Peavey Classic 30/112 - Black
The Peavey Classic 30 is a 30 watt tube combo that is made to sound and feel much like a Fender. Many players enjoy this amp for its low powered tone that is useful for small gigs. It is a single channel amp with a switchable boost that acts a lot like a second channel of sorts. It has a basic EQ, an effects loop and an onboard reverb as well. It's loaded with a single Blue Marvel speaker in this version which works fairly well. It's not the most complex amp in the world, but Peavey was going for a simple yet effective design which has proven effective for many years.

UTILIZATION

This amplifier is pretty easy to dial in for sure. Being that it's only a single channel there is not a whole lot of tweaking needed to get tones happening. This amp does not really do the high gain vibe like certain other Peavey amps, but it does do a whole variety of lower gain tones that work well in a variety of different contexts. The controls react well to adjustment and the interface is very user friendly. The only issue I really have is a bit of a sudden volume spike as the amp's volume is turned up. Otherwise it's a pretty easy rig to dial in.

SOUNDS

The Peavey Classic 30 is a more classic sounding amp that responds better to single coils or vintage voiced humbuckers. It has a very loose American vibe that is like a modern tweed Fender. It's a pretty dynamic amp too, reacting well to volume roll off with the guitar. The tones range from a gritty US clean to some fiery mild drive tones. If hit with an overdrive as a boost, this amp really starts to display some raunch. It doesn't have the tight and dry quality for truly high gain applications but Peavey makes plenty of amps to get that sound too!

OVERALL OPINION

All in all I think the Peavey Classic 30 is a great gigging workhorse that takes well to a variety of lower gain applications as well as with pedals too. At $650 new it's a pretty good deal for the musician who needs a great portable tube combo under a grand. Definitely worth trying!

iamqman's review"Black is better but not enough!"

Peavey Classic 30/112 - Black
Peavey should stick to what they do well and that is the over the top high gain amplifiers. The should stick to what they know and what they know is modern high gain. This classic rock amps are great for the low priced people who don't want or can't afford a Fender tweed and want more versatility.

This amp is the exact same as the tweed version but just in a black tolex covering. You get the same great features and tone but just in a more respectable modern black look.

This isn't a spectacular amp but it does have a bit more versatility than a Fender tweed would have. This is essentially modeled after the Fender tweed deluxe amps from the olden days. It does have two channels which makes it more modern and the second channel being for more of an overdriven tone.

UTILIZATION

SOUNDS


This thing gets a decent tone for the money. The tone seems a bit on the thin side even with a a humbucker style guitar. The tone I know is not a high gain saturation like most of their amps are, but it does get a some thick chewy distortion when you wind up the gain on the amp.

This is a simple amp and there isn't too much to dialing in a decent tone for what is has to offer you. The controls are simple and the gain structures for post and pre amp will have you selecting a number of possible tones.

OVERALL OPINION

Peavey has a great handle on the high gain amps and they do a fantastic job at getting those killer over the top high gain tones. This amp is just a toss at the classic rock players and it will suit some people fine. If you have played their 6505 then yuo'll find this a bit lacking.

This isn't an amp to write home about but it does good for the money. At new these amps come in at around $650. Not a bad price for a two channel combo amp. I would recommend this amp over a Fender tweed deluxe any day of the week. Not only for the price but for the features as well.

Peavey Classic 30/112 - Black
30 watt all-tube combo (three 12AX7 and four EL84). Two channels, a three band EQ, a reverb spring.
For detailed specifications, all has already been said again and again.

UTILIZATION

Again, everything has already been said, the 30 watt grow well, are too small transformer that heat, lights that vibrate, the absence of stand-by, good HP to change the boost which is unclear what it is. Nothing new.
Personally, I only use the clean channel with an overdrive, I use the second channel pseudo stand-by with the volume to 0.
I bought it with an HP Celestion Lead 80.

SOUNDS

So general, the amp is very transparent and great respect for the sound of gear upstream. If you see the glass half empty, we can consider that it is without any personality ...
The clean is somewhat reminiscent of the Junior Blues Vox too, not really Fender. At the risk of stating the obvious, it sounds even better than the guitar is good.
The drive channel plays a little versatility to be honest. In the first half of the race of winning, we feel that the amp is not too comfortable, he would let go a little more. Between 50 and 75%, it is in good sounds blues rock / hard rock 70. Beyond that, it sounds a bit too 80's.
The reverb, as often, once more than a quarter of the race of the potentiometer is unusable.

OVERALL OPINION

For many guitarists, the Classic 30 was the first tube amp and is a true classic, long time. I did not buy from conviction but for many fringe benefits.
The volume is sufficient for rehearsals and concerts.
The road is clean
With a good guitar and a good overdrive, it sounds!
And most importantly, we always find at least eight occasions. If during a concert, the transformers suffer because we draw 400 watts on a single shot, he finds himself pushed, or the bar is too hot and humid, well, it's not as bad as if it were the amp shop unique model of competition.
