I have not played the 45 but I've played the 18 and I would say yes they are good for blues and rock. I would actually consider the 18 over the 45 due to the lower headroom for what you want. The 18 is hella loud too.

Is this amp sitting at a store or are you just asking?


v....yeah forgot to say a used Superdrive 18 might be easier to locate...not sure. TS - use the Look up link in my sig to find used gear.

i agree with 311, unless clean is a big part of your sound you would be happier with an 18.

I had a SD18II fantastic amps for blues, classic rock, and on the modern setting with some boost it will do decent metal tones outta it.....

If you did any research into it at all you'd find out.

Yes, the SD45 is all tube, it's PCB construction, but you can expect very high quality from them as they are indeed handmade boutique amps.

Peavey did not purchase Budda. They have a distribution deal with Peavey.

The 18 and 30 are more compressed, whereas the 45 is bigger all round, and significantly brighter.
The series one stuff does sound better though (I say this having played both).
