so last night I was out and about and decided to stop in to one of the shops in my city to have a look at a peavey classic 50 410 that they were selling in there. After staring at it for about 10 minutes I went on looking around the shop and as I was looking around i saw something that was very interesting. a peavey vintage with 410 from the 70's. I didn't have enough time to stop and play it so I went back this morning tried it out and well lets just say I now have a huge amp 100 watts as far as I can find on line info about it (if you know anything about it please let me know) and it sounds amazing clean haven't tried it overdriven or distorted yet , sorry for the blog heres some pics










sorry for the ****ty cell phone pics I don't have a camera

Is this the precursor to the Classic Series then? eg the amp the Classic is based on?

regardless, congrats!

Is that a combo amp, and does it have 4 speakers in it?? I can honestly say I've never seen that before lol.

I've actually never even heard of this amp but it looks very nice. HNAD!

You should try looking it up on Harmony Central. Also, go to Peavey's website and put in the serial number to see if you can find the year on it. Looks AWESOME! Vintage Peaveys are THE best.

EDIT: My grandfather has a vintage Peavey TNT 100 bass amp from the 70's. It's a 4x10 combo too.

This is actually pretty common. I've wanted a Classic 50 410 for a while.

Well, yeah, what would you expect from a 100 watt tube amp lol.

Also, that's pretty cheap for 100w, you are one lucky s.o.b.

Is it all tube? I know some of the earlier peavey stuff had SS preamps and tube power sections...

70s... You are probably right, but I dunno, in the late 70s through the 80s and 90s, Peavey did a lot of toying around with ss power amps on tube pres and vice versa.

This is true. If I was TS, though, I'd like to think my new amp was all tube

hmmm... don't you have your own NAD to celebrate?

Not necessarily, I've heard some really great sounding Peaveys from that era, I can't remember if they were ss->tube or tube->ss though...


And yes, I do, but I've already been posting about it for 3 weeks so...

You shouldn't have to open it up, you should see tubes hanging down from the chassis. Look for 4(?) tubes about 2.5 inches long and probably 3(?) tubes about 1.5 inches long. The bigger being the power. If you have both, it's all tube, if just one kind it's hybrid.

ok all i see is the 4 power tubes ( 6L6's) but i do not see any pre amp tubes but every thing i have read so far say's that i'll need some so i don't know haha i don't see any so i am going to guess that its a SS pre amp when i get a camera off someone i'll take pics of the inside cab and the tubes

They are probably encased in little metal cylinders that look almost like 'C' batteries... Just because you can't see them doesn't mean they are not there, either. They could be back behind the transformers, or something like that...


Have faith in what we cannot see...

Congrats on the amp, TS! It looks great and I bet it sounds wicked.
SS amps were a lot better back in the day compared to how they are now. Hybrids were also very, very good, like most Musicman amps for example.
