  • Peavey Classic 50/50 or the 60/60?

    It seems the reviews for the Classic 50/50 are better then the Classic 60/60....

    .

    I thought the 60/60 would be better because it uses the bigger tubes


    Stop thinking NOW.

    I played them side by side. The 50/50 sounds better for everything.

    caring about tube size = retarded. Who told you that?

      No, doesn't the 50/50 use EL34's and the 60/60 use EL84's? I should just read up about what the difference is..just have no knowledge of what the difference is there..

        50/50 = 8 little EL 84 tubes that's eightyfour, not thirty four
        60/60 = 4 bigger 6L6 tubes

              Thanks man. Do you happen to know an approx. how much the 50/50 weighs? I'm trying to make my rack as light as possible, and thankfully I'll be going with a 50/50 over a 60/60 or any other super fat amp..

                the 60/60 weighs a LOT more than the 50/50, but they're equally loud and the 50/50 sounds warmer and punchier.

                The 50/50 is 2 rack spaces
                the 60/60 is 3 rack spaces

                I don't know exact weights, but I would say 25 lbs for the 50/50. I'd say about 35 lbs for the 60/60 (maybe more like 40 though).

                  I have a Classic 60, a Classic 60/60, and a Classic 50/50. I like the 50/50 best because it sounds better (the 60 and 60/60 do sound good) it only takes up 2 rack spaces, and it has more features than the other 2, and it's lighter.

                    The 50's sound way better in my opinion, the controls are on the front so it's easier to tweek, the benefit of the 60's is that you can usually fetch one for under $200 and often under $150 thats about it, they are not horrible but given the choice the 50/50 would be the way to go..

                      i got a Classic 120...feel the wrath!

                      theyll both be loud enough...you dont even have to worry about that part. i can tell you my 120 is HEAVY...and thats just the 120, not the 60/60 or 120/120! LOL

                      sucks that the volume is on the back, but thats ok...just crank it up, and use the channel volumes on my Rockmaster

                        50/50 solely for the fact that Evergrey used them, plus el84s are cool as ****************.

                            I've played both side by side when I owned the Peavey Classic 60/60 and I felt the 60/60 sounded tighter and more punchy. I had it tubed with JJ 6L6GCs and it definitly did highgain tones better than the 50/50.

                            I'd say try both and see which you like better.


                            Good luck

                              Same here. With my EV loaded Mesa Thieles, I liked the 60/60 over the 50/50 but....tone is soooo subjective.
                              The volume knob in the back and the extra weight for the 60/60 is a slight hassle.
                              Once I got the 60/60, I never missed the tone controls of the 50/50 because of the extended highs and lows.
                              Both are great deals.
                              EL84s are cheaper but wear out sooner.
