it's a Peavey Classic 212 VT 100 watt all tube amp. it has two 6L6 tubes, two 12 inch speakers, onboard reverb, two channels, and a phaser. he only wants 100 bucks and i figure it's worth it to get that warm tube sound. its also missing the front grill.

Should i buy it?

Yes. Jump on that, boyo

I used to have one like it - lovely cleans, nice crunch.

It is a hybrid just so you know...

this was my reason for hesitation. just for some infoi play a c-1 elite through an original crybaby a boss overdrive and a ce-3. as well as my friends mxr distortion. i play literally everything like blues jazz metal and some classic rock. i also have a strat copy and an acoustic electric ibanez that i use a little.

i would still go for it

100w for $100 was a great price

Jump on that ****, boy!

IF you want faster stumming then loosen your strings, that will force you into using more strength

i dont know about the polarity and ****, but my regular ones just wont go in the hole without a lot of force.

Your aware that most of the "tube sound" comes from a tube poweramp?
So SS preamp into tube poweramp sounds almost as good as an all tube amp.
That said, DOITNAO!

how can you get 100 watts out of 2 6l6s?

yes. you have two tubes sitting in your hand with no amplifier.

you have to take the design of the amp in to consideration.


I reference JJ's datasheet:

http://www.jj-electronic.com/pdf/6L6%20GC.pdf

Note the line that is labeled "Wa" under "pentode". That is the maximum power a single tube can run through it w/o death. Now, if you had the amp running perfectly Class B, running max voltage and max current with an ideal output transformer, you get 60 watts. In the real world, it's more like 50.

It doesn't matter what the circuit is, you will never get more than 60 watts out of a pair (at least, not for long), with 50 being a more realistic expectation.

it ended up being 50 watts im not sure why he told me 100. but its a friend through a friend thing, so i told the guy i'd buy it and throughout the week im gonna pick it up. he told me he wont sellit to anyone else. this might be the greatest month of my life. i also just got a schecter c-1 elite with an amber figured maple top with a SD JB in the bridge with a gibson hardshell case for 300 all together

50 watts makes more sense. Glad ot hear you keep running into things like that, sweet!
