View Full Version : <20 Watt combo with effects loop
06-17-2008, 09:04 AM
I am looking for a small combo amp. I want it to be under 500 but also have an effects loop. Any suggestions? I did see the Peavey Windsor but am looking for more ideas. Even buying something and modding it acceptable. Ideally 15-20 watts with one 12 or two.
Thanks in advance.

PV Classic 30:
Its 30 watts but you'll just have a little more headroom over your 20 watt requirement
New its just over 500.00
Used you can get a pretty decent deal
Its got an FX Loop

I actually have both of those right now. Love the Classic 30 its a great amp for the money. Just picked up a Windsor Studio for a friend of mine (I get to hold on to it for a month or so until he gets back from vacation) and its a very versatile little amp. Paid $400 taxes in - same price as my used Classic 30. Can't comment too much on the warmth of the Windsor yet because the speaker is still very tight. Tried it with a couple of 1x12 extension cabs with a well broken in Vintage 30 and a Weber Blue Dog Alnico - sounded fantastic. The reverb is nothing to brag about but it works ok. I prefer the reverb on the Classic 30.
Either way, you get a great sounding amp for the money.

Check out the Tech21 stuff. I guess they made a 10w combo that is now discontinued. They can still be had for cheap on ebay. I just got the 30w combo and it is great for 300 bucks. The effects loop is great on it..
Mesa has made several. DC-2, Subway Rocket, F-30.

If you could find a Super Champ, Princeton Reverb II, or Deluxe reverb II they all have effects loops and can sound great when dialed in. Prices have gotten high but you can find the PR/DR s for less than the Super Champs. And..they were point to point wiring so they are on par with a lot of current boutique amps in terms of quality.
