Alright so i have about $600 for a new amp (budget is kinda flexible, it's for christmas), and i play mostly mid-gain music (think up to pearl jam level), and i need a tube combo to replace my Vox AD50 for bedroom and basement play, jamming, and hopefully playing in a band. I've really narrowed my choices down to the Traynor YCV40WR, and the Peavy Delta Blues 1x15, and I would appreciate it if you could just reccomend one or the other, but if there's an amp that you think would be much better for my playing style in that price range, feel free to reccomend it.

Here's a brief Pros and Cons for the Traynor and the Peavy:

Traynor YCV40
Pros: Enough gain for me without needing a pedal, standard size speaker and autobiasing tubes make tube and speaker changes easy if and when i decide to do them
Cons: Reverb is not footswitchable, no tremolo, unavailabe in any local shops, so I would have to buy online ( I have tried it out though, on vacation)

Peavy Delta Blues
Pros: Footswitchable reverb and tremolo, 15 inch speaker gets a really thick bassy sound, available in local shops so i can try it out whenever, get a better deal, and support local businesses
Cons: Not enough gain on tap to reach my highest gain playing so I would need to buy a pedal to compensate, 15 inch speakers are harder to find and more expensive if I ever decide to swap speakers

YCV40 is great. Better than Delta Blues for what you want.
i've taken the liberty of searching your used market to give you some examples of what you can find. i know Christmas is a long way away.

I'm putting my GAS on hold
for a couple months in order to pimp my ride.

Ultra, no and yes. Think XXX. 5150, yeah, mostly. But it was more of an example of deals you can get.
