Classic 15 incher

Peavey Blues ClassicPublished on 07/21/11 at 22:57
The Peavey classic is basically Peavey's take on an American classic amplifier. The best amp I can relate this one to is the Fender bassman. It is essentially a blues and mild rock amp. The tone is ok and not really promising. You really need a good distortion or overdrive pedal of some sort to get a decent tone out of it. I understand Peavey's need to do an amp like this to get into the Fender tweed market but in my opinion is that Peavey's excels as making high gain rock and roll metal amps and this is a bit of a let down.

What was unique about this amp was not that is has a big cabinet for a simple blues amp but that it was sporting a 15 inch speaker inside. Usually 15 inch speakers...…

What was unique about this amp was not that is has a big cabinet for a simple blues amp but that it was sporting a 15 inch speaker inside. Usually 15 inch speakers are used by bass players to help round out there tone by combining it with there existing 10 inch speaker. You don't see it with guitar players too much as it can be very sub bassy.

SOUNDS

This amp is best for Fender Stratocatser guitars. These guitars while having a tone of soul and tone lack in the bottom end. This maybe the reason for the 15 inch speaker. This will help compensate for the lacking lows and the bigger speaker makes that difference up. This is more of a mild overdrive amp fit for country, rock, and pop and having that tweed look on the outside just makes you think the blues. Since the blues is best played on a Stratocatser then that is generally what I lean towards. I suggest using a good tubescreamer pedal if you want to get a good pop/rock tone. You can already get a smooth distortion breakup with the amp but this will allow you to take it a level and half to that singing sustain that you need for lead playing.

OVERALL OPINION

This particular model has been discontinued and replaced with an update model. You can find these amps if you look hard enough as they were made for that long. They are to be found but can be a challenge. I would recommend this amp to a fender Stratocaster player who needs more low en to his or her tone.

Hello!
So it is a 50 watt all-tube amp with a 15 inch hp (not common it seems).

there are all the usual connections: effects loop, two between two channels.

in SETTINGS, very simple: volume control of both channels, the distortion is really not bad for the blues (must say it's a little advice to use this amp).

UTILIZATION

The sound is crystal clear and an amazing grain, perhaps because of the size of HP. I almost tend it's better than my fender but have not abuse. it's just different. I tried it with my Start before you buy a precision and really crazy at the sound of the guitar. and then there is a very special grain. the blues type distortion is really so if you want you...…

I tried it with my Start before you buy a precision and really crazy at the sound of the guitar. and then there is a very special grain. the blues type distortion is really so if you want you servire to something more rock, like the way the amp but it is better to add a good disto pedal.

SOUNDS

For my part I use with my strat either live with just a wah wah or pedal rack with my boss and marshall and a live6 delays. I also use a GT8.

I'd have to try it with my les paul as one of these days but it sounds so good with the stratum. brief in any case it sounds really great, and despite the name "blues" and sound a bit east you can use this amp for everything that is blues or rock and other genres appaerents (can not be metal anyway)

OVERALL OPINION

In short: excellent amp. great sound, not too heavy, quite powerful, more precise and end a classic30 for example, easier in a fender hotrod adjustable too. I find that a 50 watt lacks a little power but it must take the selection of lamps from his former landlord.
