I recently bought this amp without having played it or seen it. I took a chance and I must say that I was not disappointed the slightest bit. This is a marvelously versatile amp. True, it handles blues best of all but I have been able to get many good rock sounds and it has one of the best clean channels I have ever played on. I haven't explored the tremo function on it much because I have little use for it. Bottom line is this amp has a wonderful clean sound, blues tone to die for, tubes break up perfectly even at relatively low volumes, sounds great with my Buddy Guy strat and my 335, screaming highs, a tight, punchy middle and bottom and alot less coin than inferior sounding tube combos. If I had to do it all over, I would still buy this amp over the number of fenders I tried, including the Bassman and Deville reissues.

I've been reading up on this amp for quite some time. I finally ordered one 2 weeks ago and when I got it one channel was defective. I had to take it back. Now the replacement is on back order and I'm still waiting. Could be a couple more weeks according to Peavey. I can't say enough about all the great customer service Guitar Center has done to make it right. I'm just really disappointed in Peavey for sending me a defective product and then not seeing to it that a customer is taken care of in a timely manner. I now only hope they have better quality control and I can enjoy the replacement once I receive it. If the next one has ANY issues whatsoever, I will return it for a refund and then go back to my Fenders. Sorry to feel this way...

Great Harp Amp

By David Young

from Dubuque Ia.

I'm a harp player and I bought my 115 30 watt Delta Blues used for $200.00 took it to a gig later that week and went back and thanked the salesman. After a while I dialed in the 2 channels to my liking and marked them and it's working great for both backup and leads I have had several amps both tube and solid state this one kicks butt by a mile or two. I haven't even tried to swap out the preamp tubes yet, don't think I'll need to. Peavey did good. Have some hum in the reverb at around 4 but have been researching it and should be able to correct it myself.....It could only be better if it were lighter. Almost Bought the Fender Blues Jr.(what I went shopping for) but the 15" speaker is lower/fuller hands down. I may still buy the Fender but haven't yet.

A solid Southern charmer

By Behrouz Montakhab

from Princeton Junction, NJ

I spent months listening to YouTube demos of amps before choosing the Peavey Delta Blues. The other finalists were the VOX AC15, which is good for the British sound of The Beatles and The Who, and of course the many vintage Fender amps. Compared to the Peavey, the Fenders all sound wimpy. The Peavey just has something wild and raw about it, something Southern and swampy. I think it even sounds better clean than the Fender, even though that is what the Fender is known for. The built-in optical tremolo on the Peavey is not great. It?s okay at low settings, but if you really want good amp tremolo you might be better off with the Fender or the Vox, or using an effects pedal. I was worried that the Peavey would be too powerful for a living room practice amp, but it isn?t. It?s a little big for a practice amp, but it looks nice if you have the space for it. I?m not into distortion but you can get the Peavey to break up with high pre-gain. I haven?t had it long enough to have to replace tubes, so I don?t know how much of a hassle that will be. I like the fact that it is made in the U.S.A. It?s pretty heavy, so you might need a cart if you?re playing shows with it.

Very good amp

By Bruce Gordon

from Roseburg, Oregon

I'm working with an AC15, and this Delta Blues 115...naturally 30watts is a more powerful amp. If you're looking for natural distortion for blues, go no further than the Peavey. However, there is not much clean headroom in it; I'm the kind of player who wants a clean undistorted sound often, so I'm leaning towards the AC15. After all, I use a processor for FX, and I use that when I want a bluesy sound. I need to play around with it some more before I decide. If weight and portability were not a factor, I'd get an AC30, but lifting and carting the AC30 is really a bit too much for me, (bad back.) Both are great amps, but I need a clean sound. If I keep the Peavey, I'll let you know.

great tremolo

By Alex Locke

from NJ

nice amp. warm sound. great tremolo. i recommend getting the tremolo pedal so you can switch between tremolo and clean. Tremolo pedal doesn't come with the amp. sounds much better than the fender blues junior in my opinion. Peavey Classics are also good altho the Classics I've had tend to overheat and give off some hum unlike the Delta Blues which are pretty quiet. Definitely a quality product, solid, well-built. Kind of big for casual apartment use, but the size of the speaker gives it the sound quality.

This amp rocks!

By Brian Miears

from Rockwall, Texas

I simply do not have the resources to buy boutique amps. Even the used boutique amps were too expensive for me. I was getting very frustrated and almost made a very bad financial decision, when after several days of research I came across this little guy. Actually, there's nothing little about it. Everything inside the Delta Blues wants to melt your face with roots rock and blues riffs! It's natural state is very punchy, so if you want clean you'll have to experiment quite a bit but it can be done. Try rolling off your guitar volume and the mids on the amp. Having said that, you will not be able to get the vox clean sound if that is what you are after. The Delta Blues has a voice of its own and I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it! I play every week at church and we keep our amps off stage, so I have to leave the amp on one channel and use a pedal board. My favorite setting is on the drive channel, Pre on 3, Post on 12, reverb on 3, no tremolo, bass on 7, mids on 11, treble on 9. This give me a smooth, warm sound that I can drive the heck out of with a TS9 if need be. I'll be playing this amp for many years. Hope this helps!

what an amp!!!

By ric bolinger

from denver colorado

ive been playing for almost 40 years, and figured out some time ago a great amp can make a marginal guitar sound better, but a great guitar through a marginal amp sounds...well, marginal ive played through (and owned) just about every brand out there, in search of the "tone" i needed to maximize the features of my intrument and my music style. then i stumbled on the delta blues 115. i can honestly say after playing one i would have paid double the price to get half the amp. extraordiary design, simplicity, sound and functionality.. you gotta try this amp

DO NOT hesitate on this amp....

By Matthew Huston

from Jonesboro, IN

i was skepticle on buying this amp at first two years ago. But after having this amp i must say that i'm glad i had it. i previously lost it in a fire but when i get insurance money i will buy a new one. the reverb on this amp compares to a fender princeton in my opinion. the cleans are absolutely amazing and kick it into overdrive and you have that peavey overdrive that has been wanted by so many for years. i've tried the orange, the vox, the fenders and this amp stands up to the rest of them. my opinion, if you come across this amp.....GET IT! DON"T HESITATE!

Best Amp I Have Owned

By John Loudermilk

from Kentucky

You can turn down the volume for playing at home and turn it up when playing out. Plenty Loud for me. I had a Hot Rod Deluxe that was way too loud at home but this one is great. It is a little bigger than I imagined, just a little heavier. You can carry it. It has a pretty rugged handle. I like the reverb and the tremolo. I don't have to use a tremolo pedal now. It has a vintage look and feel. You can get all kinds of sounds from it. The manual has some tone setting suggestions. I feel it is a real bargain for the price. It sounds real good with my Gretsch.

Da Blues!

By Eddie

from AZ

I have owned a lot of amps in my life, form the inexpensive to the expensive, and for the money the delta is a really cool amp! I also own the Classic 50 410 and other cool amp! I play a lot at church and the amps have not let me down on tone or how loud they can get. Plenty of gas in these amps! The delta blues amp sound better if you are standing about 5 feet from it, that is where I find the tone zone for the amp. But all in all I like it a lot. I have been playing guitar for a long time, I only wish they would have had something like this when I was a Teen! I have had two Fender blues devills and I feel that the Peavy Delta blues amp and the classic 50 are just as good or in some ways better. For one there not a heavy.
