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.

delta blues 15

By Wade Dawson

from Granbury Texas

I have a house full of amps, Fenders, Peaveys, GenzsBenz Black Pearl 30, Line6 and Crate. I've been playing since 1957 and play classic country and classic rock and rock-a-blly. I have not been very impressed with anything I have but snagged a Delta Blues last year. I can tell you right now this amp blows all the rest away on the band stand. Its the 15 inch speaker that really delivers. I dont think you'll find a better gigging amp for lead guitar. Great with a Strat and Tele. I haven't tried my Les Paul yet. Thankyou Hartley, now I need to get rid of a bunch what I consider crap....

WOW

By Ali Vonal

from Fairfax VA

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.

Great full sound!

By Weekend Warrior-TYmwz

from St. Louis, MO

I have owned this amp a couple of years now - real sweet. I purchased it specifically for my Parker Jazz Fly - the only amp with the 15 inch speaker that will give me a great bottom punch from this guitar. It, the Parker, just lacks the bottom punch out of anything with a 12 inch speaker/speakers. Also, the single 15 can hold its own with a full band and you have anything from a classic 50 to a marshall stack it holds its own. I also play in a band where my partner has an older Delta Blues with the 2x10's using his strat. Blends well.

Low Hum

By RS-GN5sR

from MD

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.

a beautiful thing

By Samuraimugen65

from Horseshoe Bend, AR

I've been playing guitar for a few years now. My first amp was a little Peavey transtube series and it never gave me a lick of trouble In all the years I played it, but when I upgraded to a Line 6 spider 2 I didn't get half the time I played the Peavey for out of it before the thing started messing up. Finally after much agony I decided to buy a new amp. naturally I choose a Peavey. I got a used one to save some money, but I can't find a thing wrong with it... In fact this amp is amazing. It has awesome tone, great versatility, a killer look, and a big powerful air moving speaker. Yep you can play anything on this amp, and it's made in the USA. If your thinking about it, then go for it. It won't let you down and it's worth every penny.

Its all about the tone

By Tall Paul

from new mexico

The ultimate tone machine. In any price range. I have 40 years of playing exp to back up my claim that this DB with the 115 is the best sounding amp Ive ever played. Years ago I had a Fender Vibroverb w a JBL and this Peavy gives up nothing compared to my old Fender except almost $3000! My main axe is an Epiphone ES295 with P90s and the combination is sublime, musical, addictive-its that good. Sounds great with my acoustics too.The clean sound is world class. I judge an amp by its clean sound. Any amp can be dirty- but a pristine, classy clean sound that is warm and musical is the holy grail of amps. You can actually feel the air the 15 inch speaker moves! This is my second DB- my first gigged all over the country- no issues, ever. Like a fool I sold it and recently bought this one and upgraded the tubes to JJ electronics tubes. The ultimate tone. period. end of story.

Great quality, great tone, American made

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I was torn between this amp and a couple of Fenders. This amp is unbeatable for its price class. The 15 handles the bottom end beautifully. With the treble open all the way I find the highs to ring quite well. I don't use the boost. It just adds a lot of mid which I find uncomplimentary. Effects loop is well balanced. Very tasteful effects can be found with the built-in tremolo. At 16 ohms the tubes can really be driven. I still use stomp boxes for extra gain, but this amp provides a wonderful classic tube-driven distortion with all pickup configurations. Nice reverb; at about half way it is still not over-saturated. Overall - nice warm sound, tasteful tones, well built, well designed, versatile (despite its name), great vintage look. I believe this is one of Peavey's best products.

Great for Blues or Jazz

By Gatesy

from Dexter, Missouri

This amp is amazing for blues and jazz. I use a Gibson Les Paul Standard through it, and the tone on the clean channel is just beautiful. The dirty channel, for my taste, isn't all that great. So, I run a Marhall GV-2 Guv'nor Plus distortion pedal, or, for my heavier music, I use a Line6 Tone Core Uber Metal Pedal. If you're using a Fender Stratocaster, this amp is the stuff. When I tried this amp out in the music store, I used a Fender Standard Stratocaster, and the sound was heavenly. A few months after I bought this amp, there was an annoying popping sound coming from it, so I took it in to the local music store and had the tubes cleaned out. I haven't had a problem with it since. This amp is loud. When I play with my friends, I don't turn it up much past 3, without the boost. The amp's 15" Blue Marvel speaker moves a lot of air. It also has fat highs, and a lot of mids...A LOT. Sometimes, I use my friend's Gibson Firebird Studio, and I can get an amazing Santana tone, which has a crazy amount of mids. So if you're a blues or jazz guitar player, this amp will suit you well. But, if you're a Metal or Hard rock player, you might want to look for something else.
