Good swap or not guys know very little about
the classic 70? Thanks.
#2
Need some info.

What type of music do you play?

Also, I don't know if I have ever seen a Classic 70, link? as far as value, most old Peaveys tend to go for similar prices if they aren't one of the big ones (5150 or such). It mainly comes down to what you want out of your amp.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

I don't think they ever built a Classic 70..?

Is it the older, ugly style amp with 80's cosmetics, or the newer black/tweed design that resembles a Fender? I didn't even know they made a 4x10 Ultra to be honest

I play classic rock to metal so let's say priest to machine head.
I'm basically looking to include more bass to fatten up my sound I run various dirt pedals.
#6
you need dirt pedals to get distortion from an Ultra? that amp should give you all the tones you mentioned I know mine does (2x12). the Classic series doesn't really do metal all that well.

There is a classic 30, 50 and 100. No classic 70 ever made.

I would keep the ultra if you play higher gain type music, the Classic series was not made for that type of music.

Yeah thanks guys I think dirt pedals was the wrong word overdrives clean boost etc. I googled the 70 and it is a Tweed
covered amp so it must exist.

That makes a lot more sense, being the old style I personally wouldn't trade. I dunno if there are any actual differences between the old Classic's and the current ones, but the old style sell for less.


Robb, they also had a line of Classic power amps. They made a 50W, 60W, and 120W AFAIK. I owned a stereo 60W model for a little bit, ran an ADA MP-1 through it.

12" speakers would help over the 10", maybe you can trade for a head and pick up a 2x12 cab? Alternatively you might try running a 1x15" with the 4x10

I like the tight fast response of the tens it just lacks fullness if that makes sense and it doesn't seem the amp is highly sought
after so trades haven't been worth it because it wasn't a super
seller. Can I run a 1x15 along with the 10's?

Yeah, my brother has the 50/50. Great tube power amp. Didn't they have a 20/20 or am I thinking of something else?

I was just talking about the guitar amps
