When buying a used amp. I found an amp i want thats used, a peavey classic 30 and was wondering what needs to be checked before buying it. obviously the sound and for 275 dollars is the price right? the handle needs a little repair on what the posting said so i emailed the guy to take a picture with a piece of paper saying "testforscam" and pictures of the handle. WHat else needs to be checked before buying the amp?

Thanks.

Also, can this amp do 80's hair metal tones or iron maiden tones with a good overdrive, like the fulltone ocd pushing it?

^With an OD, you'll be able to get those levels of gain. If the only thing that's wrong is a messed up handle, that's an excellent deal. The tubes may be older, but that's not worth making a big deal over. You can get new tubes and it will still be an excellent deal.

^The cost of the part + a bit of your time for putting it on? It can't be that much to get the piece or maybe even a whole new handle.
