    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.

    Congratulations. Well back to the Classic 30 club.

    Did it come with stock tubes and speaker?

    Also what is the pedal?

    Yes it's stock, it still has the first tubes.
    The guy only used it at home.

    The orange pedal (top of amp) in the effects loop is a TC Electronics CHOKA Tremolo.

    And the black pedal on the right side of the Amp is an ARTEC analog delay.

    Congrats on NAD
    I had the 20w classic, nice little amp for small gigs.
    The problem with it was the tubes just hung there in the back without retainers.
    Eventually they’d vibrate loose and make the amp crap out.
    This one got some tube fastening in the rear?

    From what I see, the Classic is about 5lbs lighter than the Bandit?

    I'd love an older Bandit, but it's more amp than I need. I had a Delta Blues 2x10 for a while, which is very similar to the Classic, but I could not coax a decent dirt tone out of it, and quite frankly, I like Peavey's SS clean better.

    It's a nice amp for most, that's for sure. It's been a successful line.
