Hey everyone, I know there are a lot of these threads, but I can't exactly find what I'm looking for here with our seldom used "seachbar"

There it is, I'm looking for a nice tube combo amp, and I've narrowed it down to these three (yeah, I know I copied it from Musician's Friend, just trying to get the point across )

Any opinions on which of these three would suit playing blues rock up to hard rock (I use a Keeley modded SD-1 for the extra push )

Thanks in advance




(Oh, in case any of you sharp-eyed fellows notice that some text areas are different than others on the chart, some of the information was missing, so I just used the text tool in paint )

I think all three are very good amps for what you play. I'd lean away from the Deville, it takes a little bit of time to get a very good OD out of it.

The Traynor is very nice, as is the Classic...your call there, but I'd take the Traynor. A 4x10 combo is brutal to tote around.

Personally I think the Traynor is the best value for money. And It's not as big as the others, saves space. 40 watts is a great power level, you can crank it real good for jamming.

Good choices, it's a tough call. It's between the Traynor or the Peavey IMO. Good luck.

Traynor or peavey.
The Traynor has a better power rating, and more portability. But, when it comes to tone, i'd go for the peavey.

Wow, looks like the Traynor pretty much owned here lmao.

I'll go back to the local shop and do a real comparison between the Traynor and Peavey, then it's time to rock out with my new tube amp

Thanks all!
