Drop some Jensens or Webers in there and it will sound fantastic! Great score!

Congrats, great amp and enough $$$ leftover to buy a decent handtruck.

Congrats on a killer find.

I believe that Texas is the KING when it comes to pawnshop scores on musical gear.

I find at least 2-3 amazing scores every year and a lot of other great gear scores all year long.

OK, I'll be the bad guy.

Is this the tweed version with EL84 tubes?
If so, this is stupid cheap.
So.......Why?
Does it still have the serial number on it?
Was there anything wrong with it? (In your OP you said that it worked.)

Eminence codes date speakers to '94.

Yes, tweed with EL84 tubes. I can't get the reverb to work but I have not spent much time with it yet.

Wow, you find the best deals of anyone I know. Very decent amp for the money. Very decent.

That was my gigging amp back in my club days, that thing was amazing. Both in sound and as pointed out, in weight.

I think I paid $300 for mine, the good tweed one, back in 1994-95.

Still looking for one of those amps, but locally.
It would be either that one or the Classic 30.
But either way, I'd be remiss if I didn't pile on the envy factor!
Very nice, indeed!

Other than the silly buss wires that break, these are very good.

When I saw Tony Bennett back...probably in the 90's, his guitar player was using a 4x10 Classic 50

Nice amp.
Absolute steal - even if the reverb never works!

And, yeah, get a hand truck for it and you still haven't broken $100. Still under $200 if you spring for a really good hand truck.

One of my good friends has used a Peavey Classic 30 for years and just recently bought a new Classic 20 head. Every Peavey amp I have ever owned has been reliable and sounded great.

Well, I sold the Classic 50 this afternoon. A guy came over to look at the Crate Vintage Club 50 I had on CL. He liked it. I thought I had the Peavey covered so no one could see it but he spotted the tweed. He was a great guitar player. He played through the Peavey and made me a good offer I would have been a fool to refuse. Now I will not have to worry about lugging around a heavy Peavey tube amp.

Right now that other dude is on some other guitar forum telling a story about how he went to see some guy selling a Crate Club 50, and instead talked the seller out of his "beloved Peavey Classic 50 that he babied for many many years."

I guess I should consider myself fortunate to have a bunch of Fender amps hidden even better than the Peavey.
