EDIT: Sorry for the huge pics, and i know people know this is an aewsome amp, but I just want to give another positive review on it. Here's some more of my pics of the SG: My Pics

Check out the Peavey Classic 30; It has 3 12AX7's and 4 EL84's. It has 2 channels; clean and overdrive. On the clean it has a volume, along with the master EQ (reverb, bass, middle, treb). On the overdrive it has a pre-amp gain and a post (master vol.), this channel also has access to the master tone stack. It is really a high quality amp; great pots, JJ tubes, 12" blue marvel speaker (really pretty good), nice spring reverb, and cool construction (tweed and chrome).

Here's some pics of mine:

What is on your SG's pickguard?


Looks like a reflection of a decorative light fixture.

Thanks for the pics, but we already know that the Classic 30 is badass

sweet man. great photography.
but, yeah, we all love this amp already.
strangely though, people have been recommending it non-stop like they use to.


edit/ also, you have great looking carpet and couch in that room.

ive got the head version.

with JJ's in the power section and stock tubes in the preamp.

ive been thinking of doing the 15 watt mod to get an even sicker overdrive at lower volumes.

i run mine with a DD5, LB1 power booster, a 535Q and a CM2 overdrive, nothing to complicated.

Classic 50s pwn Classic 30s

Especially because the 50 comes in 4x10



+1

I had a classic 50, and I liked them much more than the 30s, to be honest.
But, that may just be because I like 10" speakers better than 12"

personally for blues, the Delta blues 15 inch speaker is so awesome, its just gives you such a nice fat warm tone.

That would be perfect for me! I didn't know you could do mods. I wanted to sell my 30 as it is a bit too loud and I rarely get to turn it up very much. I read up on the mod, but I'm unsure how to remove the tubes in the classic 30, I don't want to mess it up. I have the newer ones with the plate on the back. Can I reach around? I'm unsure how to remove the wire that is holding them in place.

I'll probably get one over the summer because I hear half stacks and dorm rooms don't mix. Either that or just go all acoustic.

I'm saving up to get either a Classic 30 or Crate Palomino V32

Speaking of which, how do you guys think those two compare?

The Peavey owns the Crate IMO. Much better drive and a much more responsive EQ section.

removin the power tubes wont lower the wattage it will just **** up your amp so dont do it.


http://www.tdpri.com/forum/amp-central-station/62395-peavey-c-30-15-watt-mod.html

follow these instructions this is how you do it.

like I said dont operate the thing with no power tubes it wont work and it will just **** up your amp.

well there two diffrent amps.

if you want more of a marshall sound definately get the crate its perfect for that marshall sound, and IMO does a better job than the DSL or the new marshalls.

if you want a dead on marshall sound for cheap look into crate vintage clubs, does are dead on marshall.

the peavey well its hard to say you just have to play the amp its like a wired cross between fender and marshall, very much like a vox but not really.

glad to help.

ill probly pick one up in the future once o job comes trough.

but im definately ganna keep the classic 30, its just such a great amp.

i have to say a its bit more versatile than the palomino, but i really like the marshall sound and this amp aint for that.
