I have saved up some money and want to invest in a nice combo tube amp i have about 700-800 dollars to spend and i play lots of Guns and Roses, Velvet Revolver,AC/DC and lots of other classic rock like led zep.

I was looking at the Peavey classic 30 havnt played one yet but from the soundclips I have heard it sounds great, are there any other combo tube amps that would cover those styles?

Thanks in advance.

Peavey or Fender Blues Deluxe or Epiphone Blues Custom. Fender has better cleans and Peavey a great overdrive. it's Your choice but I would recomend You Peavey because of Your style of playing.
Epiphone Les Paul Studio 2005
Marshall JTM-60
MXR Phase 90
Ibanez WH-10 Wah
EHX Big Muff USA
Boss DS-2 Turbo Distortion
EHX Q-Tron +
Line 6 FM-4 Filter Modeler
Fender CD60 Acoustic
John Frusciante and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS UG fanclub.

The Peavey Classic 30 would be good for those styles. You could also look at the Palomino V32 amps - those are supposed to do rock quite well

I agree, also check out a Laney VC

i would get the peavey classic 50 instead of 30....the 30 hasn´t a standby switch and you´ll ruin your tubes!

Extreme exaggeration there. My Valve Jr. didn't have a standby switch and my valves were fine

no my friend, just no.

I'd look at all the amps already suggested- the Classic 30 would do what you want well though.

Used AC30, JCM800 or JCM900.


Thats what I was thinking too. All the thread starters bands he listed play marshall amps so that would lead me to think he needs a british sounding amp and not an American sounding amp. I dunno... The peavy classic 30 is good and all, but I think the a used JCM800 would be better.
Not taking any online orders.

That's an all-world upgrade, dude. I have the AC30CC1, it kicks ass. Definitely doesn't get the respect it deserves.

I have found a local shop that has a CC2 would this be better than the CC1


It's a matter of taste at that point. The best thing about the stock CC2 is that it can be easily upgraded with a pair of Celestion Blues, IMHO.

The reason the CC1 is so close in price to the CC2 is that the Neodog in the CC1 is that much more expensive than the Wharfdales in the CC2. Is it better? Again, that's opinion. A big advantage to the CC1 is that it's a little smaller and lighter (by 15 pounds/7 kilos), so it's a little easier to transport. Othewise, it's the identical amp. They both can be connected to either an extension or external cab.
