Peavey Classic 30 / 112 Guitar Amp, Tweed - Gear4music demo

The Peavey Classic 30 is a stripped back and simple vintage style amplifier with a single set of controls and 2 channels you can easily go from clean to crunch and even heavy overdrive sounds all in this one amplifier. Built in to a 1x12" combo this amplifier is great for the gigging musician on the move who want to keep their rig small.

Sweet Tones

Using an all tube preamp and poweramp circuit the Classic 30 can go from crystal cleans to a dirty crunch perfect for blues rock. These tones are spread wonderfully over two channels that are controlled with a shared EQ and reverb but different volume controls.

On channel 1 you just have a single volume control set at an ideal input gain so you get the most clean headroom possible out of this little amp. Channel 2 however has both a pre and post gain section that lets you get those dirty and crunchy tone we all love.

Classic Finish

To keep the vintage vibe with this amplifier they have finished it in the very classic lacquered tweed finish we all know and love with a silver faceplate. While this may not add anything to the tone it does look absolutely amazing on stage.

Tour Ready

Now this is a big part of the Classic 30. While a lot of other amplifiers like this sound great in the studio or at home when you take them live you don't have the headroom or punch you need. But with 30w of power and an extremely clean, clean channel you will have no problem performing on even slightly larger stages.

Heres' what Peavey say about the Classic 30

Revered by blues, country and rock players alike, these true all-tube amps span the tonal landscape from vintage to contemporary with ease. These amps are drenched in the tone that can only come from the combination of three 12AX7 and four EL84 tubes. Add features like 3-band EQ, footswitchable dual channels, footswitchable boost and reverb and you have one of the most versatile amplifiers on the market. The Classic 30 now ships with the all new Celestion Midnight 60 12" speaker! Classic looks, classic tone, Classic 30!

Tweed amp peavey

Howdy tone friends!  I promised another "sleeper amp" blog, but I'll do ya one better and turn y'all on to an entire line of stupidly inexpensive sleepers ... cool, right? I'm talking about the early Peavey tube amps and tube/ss hybrid amps.  Stick with me gang, these amps have been dissed for decades, so you may have decided they are crap without even HEARING one ... that would be a mistake; these amps have some serious mojo that's all their own.  Let's talk about them.

Throughout this blog, I'll be directing you to quite a few OTHER blogs, as much has already been written on Peavey amps.  The first blog I'd like to call your attention to is the official Peavey history, found HERE.

If ya read that ... I just bet there will be a few times you say "wow, really?".  I know I did!  Like the fact that Hartley Peavey and Co were already making Class-D amps in 1984 ... seriously ... why didn't I know this? Wow!  Or, how about that totally cool blond first ever Peavey amp from 1961:

                         The First Peavery Amp!

I doubt you'll find one of THOSE at a pawn shop for fifty bucks, but I'm getting ready to talk about the early Peavey amps that you just might!

The Peavey "Vintage" was a totally cool tweed-twin type amp, and the earliest all-tube versions actually sound flat-out fantastic.  Here's a good photo of one, check out the discussion on the Les Paul Forum:

Early Peavey Vintage Tube amp

Now the thousand-pound gorilla's of the Peavey amp world, the tube amps of Lynyrd Skynyrd's golden era; these amps, with their aluminum side-trim made their first appearance in 1969, and were omnipresent throughout the 70's.  And yep, Skynyrd really did play through em on tour and in the studio.  These amps also OWNED the Nashville country scene throughout the 70's and 80's, in fact they were the ONLY amp allowed on the stage of the Grand Ol Opry for over two decades.  Yep, all those fantastic Grand Ol Opry live recordings were 100% Peavey! 

Lynyrd Skynyrd Vintage Peavey amp wall backline

Let's dive in to the amps of the Peavey aluminum trim glory years.

The Mace This insane power monster sported six 6L6 tubes for what the manual states is "160 very conservatively rates watts RMS".  By the way, manuals to all the vintage Peavey models are still available on the Peavey site, that's cool!  With the standard spring reverb and tremolo of the day, this big Bertha was available as a head or a 2x12 combo, these amps certainly did not have a fantastic distortion, but if you want a clean pedal platform with headroom FOREVER, this amp will get ya there!  if you buy one of the early models with Eminence speakers, be prepared to replace them, a Mace could easily shred the Emis, later they put the newly developed Peavey "Black Widdow" speakers in them, and they generally took the onslaught okay.

Early Peavey Mace Head

The Duce.  With only four 6L6 output tubes this monster was "conservatively rated at 120 watts RMS", enough for nearly EVERY gig these days!  This amp was pretty much the same amp as the Mace ... but again, with "only" 120watts!  The Duce was available as a head, 2x12 combo, or the real winner of the bunch: the seriously sweet 4x10 combo.

Early Peavey Duce Amp

The Early Peavey Classic. With only a pair of 6L6 output tubes, this is the sweeet spot.  Again, with spring verb and tremolo, the Classic was originally available in a 2x12 or a 4x10 config, and again, the 4x10 is the clear winner in the tone department.  Of all the amps represented on this blog, the Classic is the #1 sleeper amp. 

Vintage Peavey Classic amp

And last ... a couple of honorable mentions!

The aluminum-edge Bandit.  Man oh man were these popular amps in the 1980's!  These 1x12 combo amps came about a little later, introduced in 1980, and do not have tubes in the output stage ... they are all solid-state ... but they deserve a mention because 1) they are a good little 60-wat 1x12 combo that has a good clean tone and makes a fine pedal platform and 2) There were so many made that they can be had VERY cheap; I've seen them for $35 on Craigslist.  Read about the entire Bandit line here.

                    The first vintage Peavey Bandit amp

The Peavey Backstage Plus.  Basically the same amp as the Bandit, but with only 35-watts RMS in a 1x10" combo, this amp is perfectly in-step with what folks want out of a guitar amp in the current era ... it's a small, lightweight grab-n-go combo that has a good amount of clean headroom and makes for a good pedal platform.  It makes me chuckle that when these amps were designed they were not considered loud enough to be used on stage ... but in the dressing room BACK STAGE.  These little critters are easily as loud as a Deluxe Reverb and have a very similar tone, and MORE clean headroom ... in other words, perfect for today's stages.  Backstage my eye!

            Early Vintage Peavey Backstage Plus

And last: The ENTIRE Classic series!

Peavey has had an amp model called the "Classic" non-stop for nearly 40 years, and seriously, they are ALL sleeper amps that sound good on the cheap.  My personal favorite would be the dual 6L6 powered tweed Classic 50 ... the 2x12 version is good, but the 4x10 version is just plain excellent.  I also like the early versions that look like a vintage tweed Fender, of course!

             Tweed Peavey classic 50 4x10 combo amp

Enough!  I'll stop mow.  I know ... it was a lot, but well, that's Peavey, they have made a LOT of amps, and they are so darn dependable that most of them are still around :-)

Trash or Treasure: Peavey Blues Classic

Hey Zach,

I bought this Peavey amp back in the 1990s as a more affordable version of a Fender. (Let’s face it, I was broke.) Doing some quick internet research tells me Peavey still makes amplifiers, specifically the Classic Series, but I can’t really find anything about my Blues Classic. Can you tell me anything about it and what it’s worth today?


Chad in South Carolina

Hey Chad,

Thanks for the question! I remember those days and the always difficult choice of trying to afford decent equipment or pay the bills. The good news is you happened to find an amp that was a relatively good bargain then, and still is today. Yes, you are correct that Peavey still produces the Classic Series, but let’s go back a bit to explore Peavey’s history and how your amp came about.

Hartley Peavey grew up in Meridian, Mississippi, and after spending time in his father’s music store, he began building his own guitar amplifiers while in high school. In 1965, Peavey decided to go into business himself and founded Peavey Electronics in his parents’ basement. He initially only built PA systems, but after rapid company growth, Peavey began building guitar and bass amplifiers in the 1970s.

While there is no direct relative of this amp in Fender’s lineup, it is somewhat similar to an early Bandmaster, Bassman, or a mid-’50s Pro, which all utilized a 15" speaker.

Circa 1973, Peavey developed a line of Fender narrow-panel tweed-inspired amps, appropriately called the Vintage Series. These amps utilized 6L6 power tubes and relatively obscure 6C10 preamp tubes. The Vintage Series eventually evolved into what we now know as the Classic Series, with most of the amps utilizing traditional 12AX7 preamp tubes and EL84 power tubes. This is somewhat of an unusual combination, however, since it uses both American (12AX7) and British (EL84) tubes to make a unique sound. Think Fender meeting Vox.

Your Blues Classic has 50 watts output, a single 15"speaker, and the American/British tube combination of three 12AX7s and four EL84s. Italso has two channels, spring reverb, a master volume control, and an effects loop. While there is no directrelative of this amp in Fender’s lineup, it is somewhat similar to an early Bandmaster, Bassman, or a mid-’50s Pro, which all utilized a 15"speaker. Keep in mind that many blues/jazz players choose 15"speakers as they tend to not lose the treble/high-end tones, so it makes sense this amp was coined the Blues Classic.

You don’t see these amps very often, mainly because the Blues Classic was only produced in 1994 and 1995. That said, there are a lot of different Classic Series models out there. The most common/popular model is probably the Classic 30, which has 30 watts output and a 12"speaker, and is similar to a Fender Deluxe. Other models in the series include the Classic 20, Classic 50, Classic 100, and Delta Blues, and all are wrapped with tweed-style covering to project that 1950s look and music style.

When Peavey discontinued the Blues Classic in 1995, it retailed for $800, but you could probably have bought it brand new for about $650 with standard discounts. It’s worth between $325 and $400 in excellent condition today. It may seemlike the amp hasn’t held its value very well, but the reality is that the value hasn’t changed much in nearly 25 years. (The used value of this amp in the mid-1990s was probably between $325 and $400, too.) Most Peavey Classic Series amps are still very affordable today, including the models that were discontinued many years ago. And from what I’ve heard and read, these amps are generally favorably reviewed. Maybe that means it’s a hidden gem? I’m not sure, but it’s reassuring to me that there are still some legitimate deals out there.

Hartley Peavey continues as the CEO at Peavey, which celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2015. The company still offers a full line of guitars, amplifiers, and PA equipment, and continues to innovate within the industry. Like many other guitar and amp manufacturers, Peavey now outsources most of their production overseas, but their headquarters remain in Mississippi.
