I recently bought a Peacey Classic 50 410. Its used and pretty old (it was made before they started putting effects loops in them). I dig the clean sound and absolutely love the lead channel. So the problem is that if I run my guitar through even one pedal, the tone just gets sucked right out. It sounds downright terrible. My old set up has three overdrive pedals, a chorus, compression and loop pedal. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and if anyone ever found a solution. Any suggestions at all would be appreciated. Unfortunately its too late to return it so this is what I have to deal with. Thanks in advance!

I have a Peavey C50 head, and it does have the effects loop. From what i've been told is that the classic series take pedals extremely well so i don't know what your problem is?? The only pedal i had troubles with was my looper. If i put it in my guitar chain the drum beat was distorted, and if i put it in the effects loop it doesn't pick up my picking technique all the time...

FOA to prev poster... I wouldn't pass a drum machine thru a gtr amp - u r asking for trouble.


to initial poster: I'd bet you my fur lined bathtub that the prob is you have a bad cable in there...

or it could be a prob with buffers.

If you have several pedals with buffers chained together it ends up sounding like all the highs bleed off...
if this is the case you should get a true bypass loop and a single buffer.

you want one and only one buffer in the mix if at all possible.

If my Spider can take four different pedals at once, your full tube Peavey Classic should as well
