I just went to guitar center and bought one of these babies ^^


Just kidding, ACTUALLY I just got a Classic 30 for $399 this is my first tube amp and I have 2 things that occur with my amp.

1. while the amp was on I moved it and accidentally hit a wall and I heard a burst of reverb like sound coming out the speaker for a while, is this normal?

2. when I turn off my amp it makes a popping noise and I don't think it's supposed to be like that....

1) Yep, spring reverb does that.
2) Yep, turning off with no standby switch does that.

I wouldnt be to worried. Ive seen a video where someone through one of those amps across the room and let it smash into the concrete floor. He then plugged it in and it was perfect. Doesnt mean you should feel free to abuse it though. Be careful with that thing.

Congratz! I started a thread like this. except I put mg halfstack lol.

I found a way to make the popping noise to stop while turning it off.

What I do is when I'm finished playing, I go to the clean channel, turn down my guitrs volume to 0 and then turn it off

It has never made a popping sound since then.

ah, thanks ^^ I don't know if there are any benefits on doing that besides getting rid of the noise but I'll just do it anyways haha

I've always found that my Classic 30 doesn't pop quite so much if I have the volume (and usually the gain) all the way down. That might be worth a try if you're concerned.

Other than that, congratulations!

Thanks!

it'll probably almost reach it. I bought this amp while visiting my cousins, so I'm not able to try it with my sparkle drive OR my guitar. I'm using his BC Rich xDD with a string missing

lol if you get a ts9 can a classic 30 do metal?

[Disclaimer: I don't actually own a TS9, so this is an educated assumption based on my experience with my Bad Monkey.]

Yes, if you give it some volume. I can't quite get a metal tone with my Bad Monkey at bedroom volumes, but I have no problem in the school gym with the volume knob at 3-4 and up.
