Every review I write is from my point of view and what I think you should know. Never do I buy music gear without reading the reviews first. Many times I have thought I wanted something until I read the bad things people such as yourself wrote about the product. The Delta Blues is a great looking tweed amp that reminds you of days gone by. It looks perfect sitting beside my Fender 1957 Blues Jr. NOS 15watt tweed amp. This amp was purchase as a primary recording amp that would produce a different tube sound than my Fender. The fact of a 15 inch speaker in the Delta Blues already tells you the sound will give you more lows, thus producing a great sounding amp. Having never heard the amp I went on reviews and my gut feeling to make the order. In my mind this was for recording and I never did think of it as a gig amp. Man was I wrong about the gigging. When the amp arrived I hooked it up to my SKB pedal board which has seven diffierent pedals. The amp by it's self was plenty loud standing on it's own. When I pushed the compression pedal along with the Bad Monkey tube driver, I was shocked. The sound that came out of this amp changed my mind set on it not being gig worthy. Since I already have a Marshal JVM410H with a Marshal speaker cab, loudness was not my reason for buying the Delta. Now I can say that this amp will hold it's on with your drum player. When you add this to the fact that it has a speaker out, you could add a cab and this would blow the windows out. The sound of this amp is just what I was looking for. The amp compliments my Fender and between the two of them there is no limit to the sounds you can produce. The Delta Blues is clean, the reverb is all I will ever need, it will get dirty, pluse you have the two tremolo buttons which is a whole new sound. You really are the master of this amp and it will involve your time to tweek, then tweek some more, to get the best out of it. The one fault I have with it. You would think that Peavey would have included a pedal with the amp in order to change the channels. You now have to reach over to the amp and push the boost knob or channel knob. I am trying to find the pedal that goes with this amp which will be an extra $25.00 dollars or more. This is my honest review on how I feel about this amp. For blues, country, motown, and jazz, classic rock, light medal, you will be pleased with the sounds. For those of you who play the dark side of medal--very heavy distorttion this would not be the amp for you. I could have bought any amp I wanted within the price range of the Delta Blues, and even go a little higher in price. After playing the Vox Custom Classic AC15CC1, the Peavey classic 30, and the line of Fender Hot Rod line. The amp that impressed me the most was this Delta Blues 30watt tube amp. If a 15" speaker is not what you want. Peavey has just come out with a Delta Blues 2X12". You owe it to yourself to at least try this amp, then listen to the other models witin it's category.

I've owned this amp for 8 years or more. It's been in the shop twice - the problem keeps returning. Sometimes it makes a raspy sound after it has warmed up, sometimes it is fine. It sounds fantastic so it keeps me hoping that I can figure out the problem. However, I'm now DONE with this stupid amp and it will be sold. Good riddance.I've been through new tubes twice, had everything resoldered, now I think it must have a bad capacitor somewhere or some weirdness with a voice coil. It makes the noise even if nothing is plugged in and without regard to volume.

this is by far the best, way better than any transistor amp, it has the warmest tones of any amp. I take it to gigs all the time and it never fails, gets as loud as i want it too, i would choose this amp over a marshall halfstack anyday.
I love this amp! I just came home with it today. What a revelation. It over drives perfectly, so naturally, so organically. With my Les Paul Custom, I keep it in the clean channel and turn it up to 3 maybe 4 and perfect over drive. With my strat, it has the prettiest clean tone I have ever heard. Kind of punchy on the low, but bassy, and the highs are a delight, mellow but bright. I really am blown away by this amp.
One great amp. I only use the one volume knob, turn it up loud and make that beauty sing...Turn the EQ's to a little over half and give it some reverb.My only "problem" is that it has too much (I don't need the master volume side), not much of a problem.
My former guitar teacher has this amp and I played through it several times, I LOVE IT! I have been looking for this amp for a very long time and the search is over! So bluesy and true and clean and well, its perfect! Rock On, Horns UP!
I've played Fender, Marshall, and even some boutique amps such as Victoria's that don't sound as good as this amp. Hat's off to Mr. Peavey on this one. Simple, straightforward, and tone to the bone.
Tone that is. The clean channel is the best part of this little amp. I would have given it 10 stars but the dirty channel isn't the best I have heard. Plus there is only one EQ for both channels. That really sucks. I use a tube screamer on it and it works great. It has such a great low end puch. I bought mine used for $*** and can not believe how clean and crisp this amp sounds.
I bought this amp earlier today and have been played it in three sittings so far. The second time, a low hum came out of it. At first I thought it may be my guitar/chord, but the hum came out even without anything plugged in. After turning it off and letting it settle, the hum still was there. I'll exchange it tomorrow. Other than that, I love the clean and overdrive channels. Wish there was a separate EQ for the two channels, but that's not a deal breaker.
It has The best tone and tremalow,over most amps.I own all tube amps.Carvin 60b.peavey Bravo112.Marshall 65 watt combo.Ichoose to use ite Delta blues in the studio and at giggs.Yhe only thing I can think of that would have made it better is if I got the foot switch with it when I bought it.I bought it latter.It dose have the abbility to rock hard or clean up with out the humm.or back round noise.Worth the bucks.
I upgraded from a line 6 spider 2 112 to this, and there's really no comparison. The clean is pretty standard, very fender sounding with reverb. The bass channel on the drive is really bluesy with low pre high post gain, it really lets u dig in and get the response you'd want in a tube amp. The middle channel is SRV to a tea. The treble channel carries its weight too, especially when u turn the pre all the way up. It gives you a real fuzz sounding tone. All around a great amp, I don't regret it in the least.
This is a pure blues amp, used for guitar as well as organ and bluesharp. It's versatile and reliable, and has many interesting features such as tremolo and boost. I like the sound, but it's missing something. I used to play gigs with it, with a Gibson Les Paul Studio, and a multi-FX Digitech, and that way it sounded super. Both the clean and the overdrive require alot of adjusting for a really good sound. But bluesy it is!!
