I just bought an 80s peavey classic 50 2x12 from a friend but the only tones i can get out of it are bright clean and way way crunchy - if i dont crank the gain i dont get good sustain but if i do its just a mess of crunch - anyone else had this problem?

^I'd suggest maybe checking the tubes...it isn't an issue with my c30.

Why did you buy it then?

But I'd say get new valves, and an overdrive pedal to overdrive the cleans/light overdrive to get the gain you want.
