Back in the day I bought the Peavey Delta Blues 15
Yup. I had that amp for a good number of years. I learned so much while playing that amp. Sounded great and I felt terrible when I sold it; attached to it for the reasons of its great sound and the aforementioned learning experience. However, my Allen Brown Sugar with the 1-15 in it is a superb amp that gets me what the Delta Blue did and with even greater and smoother tonality. Nevertheless, if I had to go back to a Delta Blues, I could still be happy.
Back in the day I bought the Peavey Delta Blues 15 and man, I really liked the amp. A week later the reverb died and because of availability and timing, I swapped it for a C30, which is another great amp. But I really wish I could have stuck with the DB. Definitely an amp that had something going.
Yes, I really like the tone of the Peavey Delta Blues in the 15" speaker version. The 2 x 10 was not as good. I wish I had bought one back then while they weren't as expensive.

Yeah...they were actually a pretty good deal back in the day. And made in the USA. I think I paid something like $465 brand new for mine at a local shop down in Santa Fe. That was in something like 2003 or 2004, is my guess. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, that would be around $630 today. Still not a bad price. I seem to recall Hartley Peavey claiming it was his favorite amp that they produce.

I just checked and they now sell at Sweetwater for $800, new. They have an upgraded speaker in them from Celestion as well as a few other features on the amp that are now in place compared to the one I had from the earlier years.
But, hey..."These amps' volumes go all the way up to **12**!!"
