  • Peavey Classic 30 vs. Fender Deluxe Reverb RI (DRRI)

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to get a good amp for mainly bedroom practice and maybe the ocassional low wattage gig.

    I have narrowed it down between a Peavey Classic 30 and a Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue (used).

    I'm interested in having the best tone with a ton of sustain and good versatility as I like to play a wide variety of music.

    Which would be best for me?

    Well, a DRRI isn't exactly versatile, unless you're talking variety of clean sounds...

    I'd recommend the C30 for versatility, the DRRI for tonal quality.

      Though I'm in love with my DRRI, I'd say to go with the Peavey.
      My DRRI will give you some good breakup but will be very loud at that point.
      The Peavey has a very usable master volume.

              This is a smart man. Listen to him.

              Get a good DRRI, a TS-9, and a decent delay pedal... you'll be set.

                I'd say the Peavey as well. I love the DRRI, it's high on my list of amps to own, but I think the Peavey has a bit of a leg up in terms of versatility.

                    a post volume *is* essentially a master volume. You're able to get distortion at reasonable volume levels.

                        looks like most prefer the c30 in terms of versatility...any suggestions for alternatives to the c30 or is it the best in it's class?

                        Also, if i were to get the DDRRI but use a few pedals to get distortion...would the c30 still be a better bet?

                        thanks for the help guys...I have a wad of xmas cash burning a hole in my pocket!

                          a master volume is a master volume for both channels, pv post controls only the gain channel, yes as you turn the post up the gain channel gets louder, but the tone also changes along with it.

                            I'd sit on a DRRI with dead tubes playing my guitar silently before I'd be caught with a peavey.

                              tha'ts just silly. I've owned fenders, voxen, marshalls, and I put the tone of the classic series peaveys right up there with them. If you're just ashamed of the nameplate, that's even more silly.
