maybe a VK cause it can really do anything...

edit: but yeah...it needs a tube change for brighter stuff or a dist pedal instead of the on-board dist. That's the way I use it.

This. Peavey Classic 30 is a great option for your style and will definitely have enough headroom for medium to large gigs through a PA. I would recommend looking at a good overdrive pedal to boost the gain stages and maybe a clean boost if you are doing solos. Your Jachammer will do for now but maybe a bit heavy for classic rock, but since I haven't played a Classic 30/Jackhammer combo, I couldn't tell you.

Laney VC30

Cheaper then C30.
You're pedals will be useful in getting the VC to sound the way you want.

30w is enough for all gigs.

You would probably only need 30 watts maximum, valve amps are very loud.

many thanks as allways guys how do i know if a amp is a valve or solid state amp ?
#14
Online it usually says so.

Irl, look at the back of the amp on a lot of amps you can look in and see the tubes, but if there aren't any they might just be behind a plate. Ask a clerk if unsure.

Btw, please listen to this thread and get a Classic 30 (or the Laney if you're in the UK), it will be much better than whatever else you'll find, thinking it's a good deal.

Palomino. They're on sale now


Didn't that sale end?

I'd still prefer a Classic 30 over a Palomino tbh.

Yes. Palomino. If I hadn't bought my YCV 40 just recently, I would have bought this thing. They also come in 50w for 50 bucks more, but that really isn't necessary.

I highly recommend finding out where the TS lives before making suggestions.

It's what I do.

so alot of people are recormending a peavy classic 30 would that amp be sutable for a medium sized gig such as in a pub or village hall many thanks again ben .
#21
Yes it would, it would be stretching it if you needed cleans but it would still do it.

You would have plenty of volume especially if you are mic'd for any distorted stuff.

VAlveking would do everything you want easy


No, don't go near one. Needs new tubes + new speaker etc for it to be somewhat decent.

I've done Clean with a 15 W Blues Junior, this should be fine.


But, yeah. I've heard some very good tones out of the Crate Palomino V series, so check them out too. (That or the Peavey Classic 30)

many thanks guys so 30 watt valve amp looks like it would be perfect correct ?
