Peavey is proving that good things come in small packages with its new Classic 20-watt 112 combo amp. Set to be on show at NAMM 2024, the amp provides the “distinctive sonic punch of the larger, iconic amplifiers” but with reduced size and weight. It aims to emphasize practicality without hurting your tone.

The combo has an all-tube pre- and power amp with a tiny footprint, measuring 7.25” x 14” x 7.75” and weighing just 15.7kg. Peavey’s Classic 30 has been a backline staple for many bands over the years, so condensing its magic into a smaller, more roadie-friendly package – as well as being a space saver when it comes to van Tetris – packs a fair appeal.
