SNAMM05: Peavey Redesigns Classic Series Guitar Amps
CLASSIC 30 HEAD

Peavey has redesigned its renowned Classic Series guitar amplifiers. Originally launched in 1991, these versatile all-tube amps retain their distinctive sound and circuitry but now feature an updated chassis design and two new models, the Classic 30 Head and matching 212 Cabinet. Classic Series amps feature three 12AX7 preamp tubes and four EL84 power amp tubes, and are available in two 50-watt designs—the Classic 50/212 and 50/410—as well as a 30-watt combo and 30-watt head. The 50-watt models include an active presence control, and all models include footswitchable reverb and three-band EQ. Classic Series combos and cabinets are outfitted with Blue Marvel® loudspeakers. According to Peavey, their responsive gain structure and warm/punch tube combination, wide tonal versatility and 15 years of road-proven reliability has made the Classic Series amps revered by rock guitarists, blues benders and country players.
