So, yesterday I followed an ad on Craigslist and ended up buying this thing:


Peavey Delta Blues 115! I have to say, I really love this thing. It's got both a nice clean as well as an overdriven sound, as well as some nice reverb and tremolo. Just for conparison, I've tried a Peavey Classic 30 out, and this amp absolutely destroys that one.



All of the knobs and whatnot. From left to right: Normal (clean volume), Pre-gain, Post-gain, Reverb, Bass, Middle, Treble, Tremolo Intensity, Tremolo Speed. The two buttons are channel switch and boost respectively. The boost is my only issue with this amp, since it's not footswitchable.




The tubes are a little unsettling, too, since they're totally exposed. No problem, though, I'll just buy/make a tube guard.

Here are some clips I took of the amp. They aren't great, but they give you an idea of how the amp sounds. One thing to note is that these samples are a lot "bassier" than the actual amp is; this probably has to with my mic/its position.

I got this thing for $425, and I have to say, I am really satisfied! If you have any questions, go ahead and ask!

Might wanna resize those pictures. Nevertheless, the corner caps on that amp look fantastic! :p

Its basically a classic 30 with tremolo and a 15" and oversized cab. Makes a huge difference huh?

Very nice amp.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I think if there was a flea on the amp we would be able to see . Those amps are pretty nice. HNAD. Also, for real, those are some big ass pics.

Maybe it's just the guitar or the EQ, but this amp feels a lot more "open" than the Classic 30 I tried out a while back.

i agree. i think the 15" delta blues is a great amp.

plus it's tweed so it's got the mojo.

It's not real tweed though

i used the same stuff to tweed a pro jr. it's easy to work with and still looks nice.
