iamqman's review"Decent price for a used one"

Peavey Classic 50 Head - Tweed (Discontinued)
This is a 50 watt two channel amp that is geared towards the old school rock and country tones. This is generally a clean amp with a mild overdrive for channel one. For channel two you get a little bit more gain on tap but the voicing has is limited to the sweat classic rock tones. Not really a high gain amp even though it does have some good distortion on channel two. This is going to be an amp that you couple with pedals and effects to compliment your playing style.

This is basically the same amp as the 30 watt version only in a higher wattage. All the same features and tone are there. However, you will get a slightly different change in the headroom since there are 20 extra watts and three extra speakers. The low end will be a bit tighter since you have 10 inch speakers in the cabinet instead of 12 inch speaker or speakers.

UTILIZATION

This amp is easy to figure out. It has an easy front panel faceplate that is self explanatory. Te manual you get is very helpful as well. They has provided the user some diagrams of pissible settings for different types of music. This allows the user to get started with some easy rock, coutry, and metal settings. Then the player can take control of his own tone from minor tweaks to the manual's guide.

Not that this amp is very difficult but having the pre setup in the manual is a great guide for people who may just be getting started in guitar amps. If you have bee playing the acoustic for a while and now just getting into the electric guitar something like this can help a lot of people.

SOUNDS

The tone from this amp is not that great and not really my thing. This amp is geared toward the classic rock player who needs a good Fender tweed style amp, but wants more versatility. The amp is versatile for that kid of player. However, if you need that versatility and the price is an issue then this would be a good amp.

The clean tone is a pretty decent clean tone. You can crank the volume up more and it will get a mild overdrive tone. When you engage channel two there you will get some good distortion much like a tubescreamer would get in front of an already overdriven Fender classic amp. Having the boost switch is stretching in terms of classic Fender style EQing. Also having another channel is going to be a bit much for some old guys who this amp is marketed towards. So the TS9 helps those who want just a simply overdrive to the clean channel.

OVERALL OPINION


I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs a good two channel tweed amp and doesn't want to spend too much to get it. This is a good amp that will give you solid creamy rich classic rock tones all day long.

These amps are no longer in production from Peavey at the moment. They could bring them back but who knows. I have seen them on the used market for around $300 which isn't a bad price for a tube head of 50 watts.

Le Taz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)"Amp almost final"

Peavey Classic 50 Head - Tweed (Discontinued)
50w amp, 4xEL84, two switchable channels, reverb and equa common presence, a clean volume, gain and channel volume two, and master volume. Effects loop, impedance selector (4/8/16).

On some units, an equa per channel is needed, but here we have a true balance between the two channels and a clear channel music always, whatever the setting. on the other hand, reverb assigned channel would be easier (the solution is to switch both at the same time on the footswitch option to exclude for pirates with a wooden leg ;-) )

UTILIZATION

Very simple configuration, everything I love, I rather allergic to the following fighters today, but appreciates the opportunity to create at least two accessible sounds quickly.

The clean channel is gorgeous. Like that of the classic 30, I remain convinced that this is one of the best clean the market, but I'll talk later.

The satellite channel can fly away from the counter to the bluesy crunch lot fatter. The interaction between master volume, volume and "pre" (gain) of this channel is used to define the type of overdrive that is desired: vintage, we boost the channel volume, more modern one in the fall choosing instead to mount the master. This would be binding on that affected the clean channel, but this one is still good, regardless of the volume control!

SOUNDS

For sounds, I will limit any continued the scope: I do not slap in the extreme metal, and therefore would be wary to issue an opinion because I did not try.

I will, once will not hurt, starting with the satellite channel. Typed vintage, it is hot and creamy, rocky as volume controls, presence, and of course the guitar you use. It is not ultra-versatile, well stated in a world ranging from blues to rock, or even heavy rock (stoner). His most is to bring a different sound in that register the perennial Marshall and Mesa in the genre. One approaches the sound of some "pancakes" where guitarists grew thoroughly Fender (Ted Nugent) or Vox (Rory Gallagher). For reference, this amp is the basis of its Lynyrd Skynyrd for several years. Hot, bold, insist, it provides for fat riffs and aggressive solos, always with a phenomenal presence in the mix (at this level, even my JCM 800 comes back).

Where it hurts, it's clear the "2 in 1". Let me explain. If you connect a Jackson in a Fender, it does not sound terrible. But there ... It's just unbelievable. Whatever the setting, whatever the output level of your guitar, the sound is clean, warm, balanced. What type of a good clean blues, to see a solo Gilmour with a tad of reverb or delay. I plugged a lot of guitars in it, it still sounds hot, and it is not eaten by the personality of the amp, like most Fender. And this quality brings another advantage, much more difficult to get a Vox or Fender: it accepts and demo every single distortion pedals and overdrive that you submit, and I tried some . The drive remains "clean", that does not drool if you like (not like Fender). So you win the heat of this channel in addition to the color of your purpose, without any significant constraint (low imprecise, acute screaming or deaf).

So, with the drive channel neo-vintage, with this clean channel, and one or more pedals Overd to complete your sound palette, you have an ultra versatile, but has a real warmth and a real character .

OVERALL OPINION

I had a lot of amps (Brunetti, Rivera, Fender, Marshall, Engl, Peavey), my main amp is a Marshall JCM800 2210. I'm not a big fan of Peavey products, but throughout my career, the series classic is always back in my legs at one time or another: Classic 30 (3 in total!), Delta blues and 15-inch This classic top 50. This series meets this great success thanks to the alliance's vintage, and the possibility of versatility through a clean channel that does not invade the distortion pedals.

The classic series 50 is in the line of this series, in the same spirit of sound, with the advantage, due to certain settings (master, presence) and its power to manage even better drive. The classic 50 has better bass than the classic 30, simply by offering more, including live volume. If you prefer to have one amp for everything, even pick a few drive pedals, remaining "credible" in the universe as picky as the blues, for example, this amp is a reference (just look commercial success).

Finally, the advantage of the head will be appreciated by those who, like me, are not really fans of open-back and does not want to lug around a combo + a closed pan baffle for sound. Performed in-office closed offers even more fat and precision bass. We find the character of the classic 50 2x12, but with a much more imposing, while keeping a clean sound incredibly musical and present.
