«  one of the first small amps to loupiotes »

Published on 10/05/12 at 03:56
All Tube Amp (2 lamps in 2xEL84 preamp + amp)
15/20 W
One guitar input
1 channel: volume + bass + mid + treble + master. 1 pusher Boost
No reverb, no loop, 1 headphone output, 1 output additional speaker

UTILIZATION

Compared to its "big" brother, Classic 30, it has only one channel, while very simple configuration.
Its very typical lamp / blues, even at low volume. Volume (a gain) changes significantly the grain. Ideal with Fender.

Easy to connect, easy to adjust, easy to carry, the sound, the look (tweed clear as its big brothers) why have they stopped at Peavey?

SOUNDS

Perfect for playing the blues. Ideal for work in an apartment or inside (WAF * high enough). Ideal to take to work weekends in the countryside.
Attention only 15W: probably too short to play with a battery: climbing power, clean sounds are no longer accessible.
Sound thin veil at all levels of gain (not unpleasant kind of hiss that matter), but may in some irritating.
Correctors tones play their role across the spectrum: it can play crystalline medium can play at background, one can have a sound right (but sings anyway) or saturax runny.
on the other hand, it is unclear how the hyper-saturated California's clean (but blah, why there are external effects).

I use a small multi-effects (Pandora PX4) while held in one hand! Its the best lamps / compact.
Preference for guitars equipped with single (with a U.S. Standard Stratocaster is perfect).

WAF: Woman Acceptance Factor

OVERALL OPINION

I use it as a small amp work from 15/16 years, never a problem. He travels in the trunk of the car easy.
Bought new less than 2000 francs (€ 300) at the time in Paris rue Pigalle, if it again, I do it again. There is no equivalent today in this price range.

Only faults, not too serious in my opinion,
- The lack of reverb: when one has no effect, the sound is really dry.
- The lack of effects loop. Effects must then be located between the guitar and the guitar input of the combo: this is not ideal.
- Attention to lamps, they are not super protected
