1 guitar input
Channel 1: volume + bass + mid + treble + master. Push a Boost
No reverb, no loop, 1 headphone output, an extra speaker output
Compared to its "big" brother, the Classic 30, it has only one channel, while very simple configuration.
Its very typical lamp / blues, even at low volume. The volume (a gain) changes significantly the grain. Ideal with a Fender.
Easy to connect, easy to adjust, easy to carry, sound, look (tweed clear as its big brothers): why have they stopped at Peavey?
Perfect for playing the blues. Ideal for work in an apartment or indoor (WAF * quite high). Ideal to carry to work weekends in the countryside.
Attention 15W Only: probably too short to play with a battery: in the amount of power, clean sounds are no longer accessible.
Light veil sound at all gain levels (not unpleasant kind of hiss that matter), but that could irritate some.
The tone controls play their part, across the spectrum: you can play crystalline medium can play at background, you can have a right (but singing anyway) or saturax drooling.
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! The best value for their lamps / compact.
Preference for guitars equipped with single (with a U.S. Standard Stratocaster, it's perfect).
WAF: Woman Acceptance Factor
I use it as a small amp work for 5 / 6 years, never a problem. He travels in the trunk of the car easy.
Bought new less than 2000 USD (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 defects, not too serious in my opinion,
- The lack of reverb: when one has no effect, the sound is really dry.
- No effects loop. The effects should then be located between the guitar and the guitar input of the combo: This is not ideal.
- Attention to the lamps, they are not super protected.
