My Bandit is too big so i wanted a smaller, portable but powerfull amp. 2 Days ago i bought this Classic 30 (older Version from 2004). Yesterday at the rehearsal i could compete with our loud drummer and the other guitarist with his very loud Supro Thunderbolt plus (60W). This little thing cuts through the mix easily. It's my 3rd Classic 30 and i don't know why i sold the other 2. I love Peaveys.
