    Been playing my 115 MIA Delta Blues a lot lately. (See avatar). More than my Victoria Double Deluxe. The onboard trem and drive channel were extremely useful. More so than you’d expect. Especially with the aftermarket foot switch. It’s mint and cost me all of $350. But that was some years ago.

    Just checking in. I have two C20's, one C30 and one C50 410. I used to have a C50 212 but sold it in 2018 as I can use my 412E if a 12" speaker tone is needed. Over the years I have used my Classics to cover 1960's thru 1990's tones. These are great amps and I think I will always need one of each just in case. Here are some small snips from my Peavey family pics.

    I just picked up another C30 cheap that was DOA so I now have 2 of them ... it is an older one with no standby switch and the Blue Marvel speaker in it. When did Peavey stop using the Blue Marvel speaker? My spousal unit made me get rid of all my electronic test equipment so I had to take it to my amp guy to fix it.
    I will be thinning the herd soon. I don't need 12 amps but I know I am going to regret it.

    Sorry if this isn't allowed but I picked this up back in the summer and haven't posted it.

    This is a 1990's Peavey Classic 100 watt head ( it's got 8 EL84's! ) and 115E cabinet with a vintage '70's JBL K140 speaker (was probably an upgraded by a previous user). As this is a speaker from a bass rig it has loads of bottom end.

    The clean channel is beautiful with the added on board reverb and takes pedals really nicely. The dirty channel is a Marshall killer, wow it's amazing.

    See my post above.

    I just scored a Peavey Classic 4x10 cabinet to go with my Classic 100 head and 1x15. Now I have sweet treble and bass.

    I spoke to James Brown the designer of the Peavey Classic line as well as the Van Halen and Satriani amps. He now works for EVH. He told me his favorite peavey amp is the classic 20 with a single ten in it. No kidding. the actual owner loves the 20. He is on to something. I think that amp is a total sleeper.
