The Peavey Classic 30 112 is the newest member of the Classic tube amp family using the same basic preamp design as the Classic 50, with the addition of the boost switch.
The 30 watt power amp, when combined with the specially-voiced 12-inch speaker creates a very powerful amplifier that’s portable enough for backstage or practice, yet loud enough to jam with a rhythm section. The dual channel preamp allows quick variation of tone - from vintage blues, to modern hard-rock and grunge tones. The boost switch is particularly useful in obtaining the more traditional cranked-amp tones without the harshness generated by sending too much low end to the power amp. The 30 watt power level is just the right amount for power amp chunk and sustain at a reasonable volume.
Two particularly modern additions to this amplifier are the reverb and effects loop. The reverb unit is the long-spring type found in most guitar amps since the 50's. The effects loop comes in especially handy when used with delay, chorus, and many other effects units, racks or stomp boxes - when you don’t want the associated noise of connecting them in-line with the amp.
For a special treat, try plugging one of the Classic enclosures or even a 412-Peavey 6505 cabinet into the external speaker jack. You’ll find this particular combination has plenty of knock in the low-end. And best of all, it’s very LOUD.
