    I feel like I used to know this but for the life of me, I can't remember. Is the Classic 30 based on some other schematic? Like is it a tweaked copy of a Fender amp or is it its own beast?
    Thanks for helping me remember. You know what they say is the first thing to go...

    It’s kind of it’s own beast, but definitely has a little bit of each Fender, Marshall, and Vox.

    I think they have their own vibe .... but definitely got some mojo from other platforms.

    Mixture of things that make it it’s own thing.
    I owned one and used it as my gigging amp for several years.

    EL-84 made me think Vox but it had its own sound. I understand the tubes don’t make up the sound nearly as much as the design of the wiring.
    Tweed shelf paper covering was a nod to Fender.

    Good sounding knock around amp.
