Last amp I will need.
By: Blues Guy from Left Coast
Your general opinion of this product.
This amp has a nice reverb, great clean channel, and one of the best dirty channels I've ever heard. It can cover country, blues, classic rock, and the dirty channel can get surprisingly raunchy. Death metal guys will want a little more, but everyone else will be happy. I was bummed that a cover and a foot switch were not included. I got one of each asap. Only the channel and trem are footswitchable. I kinda wish the boost was too. I don't use that feature much so it's all good though. Loses one star for making me go buy the footswitch and a cover.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The amp appears very well made. Made in USA was important to me. This Mississippi made Peavy is better built than recent american fender amps.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Controls are intuitive. Five minutes and you got it figured out. Two minutes if you're smart. lol.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
I've heared lots of good things about the Delta blues 1x15. I like the sound of 10 in speakers in tube amps. I was thrilled when I saw the 2x10 version of this amp was back again. I sounds tight and smooth. Reverb and tremelo are all the effects I need, and they are very nice. It can get crazy loud if you want, and it still sounds good with the volume down at reasonable practice at home levels.
How did the stain or paint job look?
How has it stood up over time?
Had it less than a year so far. No problems. I appears built like a tank. I bought a padded cover for it just in case.
