I went into a local shop today and of all things i spotted a Peavey classic 30. Well from afar it didn't look bad, so i checked it out a little bit and lo and behold it had no tubes. Knowing that tubes won't cost a ton to replace, i asked the clerk " how much you selling the Peavey Classic 30 for?" He replied 80 bucks! This blew me away! 80 bucks for a used Peavey Classic 30 without tubes!!! I got all the info on it and reserved it so i could check a few more things.

I plugged it into an outlet and it turned on so thats a good thing. I don't know what year it is but i made sure to get all the info on it. The Serial # is 11128469 but i don't know if that will tell me the year it was made in. Could i get a little help from some fellow UG'ers?

BTW I believe at the Peavey site they have a place where if you email the serial to them they will fill you in on the details..... uh cancel that. From the Peavey Site "Peavey Electronics is very proud of its long tradition of building quality products that can bring a lifetime of service and enjoyment. The year 2010 will mark our 45th year in business, and we wish to sincerely thank our customers for their support. Without you, we obviously would not be here.

Due to the volume of quality products that have been manufactured and sold over time, Peavey gets an ever-increasing number of requests for “born on dates” for older products. Unfortunately the archive containing this old serial number information has a problem and is currently shut down.
For this reason, we are currently unable to respond to these requests. At this time, I do not know whether this situation is temporary or permanent.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. We assure you that Peavey Electronics will continue it's a tradition of working hard to insure that our customers get the best possible quality, value, and service."

You'll end up wanting to keep it.
Good luck, hope you get it. You could easily clean it up and get your money back out of it.

Did I just read that right?

You don't want to turn on an amp without tubes in it. It could ruin it. Otherwise, I would have bought it in a heartbeat.

Oh well it was for like ten seconds. i didn't play through it. I just made sure the power would work! would that damage it too?


edit: so its highly likely that I'm gonna buy the amp. I'm gonna spruce it up a little cause i can't stand a dirty amp! What tubes would you recommend? I see that the Classic 30 takes four EL84's and three 12AX7's.

Turning it on without tubes is just fine, it won't hurt anything, but it's not going to do anything either.

Yeah, go get that thing man! I'm sure with the new tubes and such, you could probably turn it around for 250+ easily. There was a classic 30 in my local shop, decently beat up but still in good shape, sold for 350 in a week.
