Ask anyone who has managed to turn a passion into a career, and they can surely pinpoint the exact moment in time that they realized their life's calling. For Hartley Peavey, that moment occurred in 1957 at a Bo Diddley concert deep in Mississippi. The energy he felt and the tones he heard that night would ultimately take form in the first Peavey amplifier. The rest, as we say, is rock & roll history. Today, that original burst of inspiration lives on in one of Hartley's most enduring creations, the Peavey Classic® Series.
Quite possibly, no amplifier bearing the Peavey name is nearer to Hartley Peavey's heart than the Classic Series. Born where blues and rock & roll began, these amplifiers come alive with vintage vibes, versatility and a timeless design from one of America's enduring musical innovators. The Classic Series is the sound of Delta soul and as close to the source as you'll ever get.
Revered by blues, country, and rock players alike, these true all-tube amps span the tonal landscape from vintage to contemporary with ease. These amps are drenched in the tone that can only come from the combination of three 12AX7 and four EL84 tubes. Add features like 3-band EQ, footswitchable dual channels, Presence control and reverb and you have one of the most versatile amplifiers on the market. So, if only a tube amp will do, check out one of our timeless Classics. Classic looks, classic tone. And they're only from Peavey.
