Peavey Electronics Redesigns Classic Series Amplifiers

Published 9 years ago on November 18, 2015

Peavey launches the redesigned Classic Series‚ featuring improved internal construction while maintaining the original tone of their legacy models. With changes resulting from customer input over the past 20-plus years, these versatile all-tube amplifiers span the tonal landscape from vintage to contemporary with ease. The Classic Series is now available through dealers and distributors worldwide.

The redesign includes internal improvements such as fewer electrical interconnects, improved power supply capacitors, more robust transformers, higher power resistors, ceramic tube sockets, and improved cooling. The iconic classic tweed covering and chrome-plated chassis remain, with pre and post gain controls on lead channels, two-channel preamp, three-band passive EQ (bass, middle, treble), and the new footswitch with selectable channel switching, reverb, and boost. The amps are also equipped with effects loop, three 12AX7 preamp tubes, four EL84 power tubes, and an external speaker jack.

Classic Series models include the Classic 30 112, Classic 50 212, Classic 50 410, Delta Blues 115 Tweed, and the Delta Blues 210 Tweed. The Classic 30 and both Delta Blues amplifiers have an added standby switch, jeweled point lens, an external main fuse, and 30 watts of power into 16 or 8 ohms. The Classic 30 features a 12-inch Stevens Trusonic speaker while the Delta Blues amps have a 15-inch Celestion Fullback speaker and two 10-inch Blue Marvel speakers in the 115 and 210 respectively. The two Classic 50s are both 50 watts into 16 or 8 ohms and fan cooled with two 12-inch Blue Marvel speakers in the 212 and four 10-inch Blue Marvel speakers in the 410.
