Not sure if it counts, but i had a Classic 50/50 EL84 power amp in my rack, sounded pretty responsive and mean.

Seems like the Classics really are the best amps out there for anything but heavy?

For the price, I believe they're pretty damn good in USA at least. In Europe, Laneys at least would compete I believe, but they're still not bad.

Thinking of getting a classic 30. I'd probably get it off Thomann for 600. What are its strong/weak points?

I've got a Valveking 112, which I'm very happy with. I've replaced the tubes from the stock, and I've currently working on a 2x12 cab (2 celestion 30's) to replace the crappy Valveking speaker. Once that's all set up and working, I'm gonna turn my combo into a head (i.e. remove the stock speaker and construct it a whole new casing).

But yeah, I'm a big Peavey fan, I'll be looking into getting a XXX or a 6505 (or whatever) as my first 'proper' amp.

Loving my C30. I've liked most Peavey tubes I've tried. The exceptions being the vk, which I think is a horrendous amp. Sterile cleans and an all around bad lead channel.

Classic 50, little too large but sounds great.

Delta Blues 210 tonight off of craigslist for $350. Not. Too. Shabby... Will post pics later if I can stop playing long enough to grab my camera. Was looking for a C30 or Traynor YCV40 but this came along first. So what was I supposed to do??? *smirks*

I'm in the market for a new tube amp, I want something to give me a bluesy or garage blues tone, and I stumbled across this.

http://detroit.craigslist.org/msg/685222067.html

(Its peavey by the way, that's why I put it in this thread)

What do you guys think? As Peavey fans, is it a nice amp? And isn't 60 watts a little ridiculous? How am I ever gonna be able to overdrive that without going deaf?
