Peavey Delta Blues 115 II 30W 1x15" Guitar Combo Tube Amp
Peavey Delta Blues 115 II 30W 1x15" Guitar Combo Tube Amp

The Peavey Delta Blues 115 is a two channel tube amp that goes from slightly dirty to medium gain.

This particular model comes in a 30-Watt 1 x 15" combo profile, which should be loud enough for most small to medium size venues.

It features three 12AX7 preamp tubes, and four EL84 power tubes, and has Pre/Post gain knobs for fine tuning your tone.

The Celestion Fullback G15V-100 15" speaker is quite bulky and heavy for a guitar amp, but it does allow for more low-end frequencies.

Matching its classic tone and aesthetics is its built-in reverb and tremolo effect.

  • Power Rating: 30W

Pros
Blues, jazz and rockabilly players love the grit and response of this amp, some owners even favor it over their more expensive amps. Reliability is also big in reviews, with plenty of good testimonies from owners who have used the Delta Blues 115 for many years. It is also well loved for being pedal friendly.

Cons
This is not ideal for high gain distortion, although there are some who report getting good high gain tones when paired with a good distortion pedal. Having a 15" speaker means that this combo amp can be quite heavy, a few even complained that the amp should come with casters.

Overall
This amp is for you if you're looking for a reliable tube amp for blues and similar styles.
