This is mah amp. It's a Peavey Delta Blues 30watt amp and this thing is a wolf in sheep's clothing. It's an all tube amp so it gets that vintage style crunch we all know and love. For 30 watts this thing moves alot of air thanks to the big 15 inch speaker. My only gripe against this thing is that it kinda fudged up when you're playing up high on the neck. It doesn't matter what you are playing or what your skill level is, you will sound bad up on the neck through a Delta Blues but it was cheaper than a Marshall Valvestate(Tubes + solid state = yuck) or a Fender hot rod and this was as close to the vintage crunch that I could get. I'll poast pics of my guitars soon.
Well, considering 15 inch speakers are designed to be used with bass amps, it's not surprising that it sounds a bit muddy ;). And agreed, the valvestate is shite, but not all hybrid amps suck. I've got a Peavey Mace with a solid state preamp (which is surprisingly ok), and a valve output stage (six 6L6GC's @ 160 watts :D)
And even the other way around, a valve preamp can really add warmth to a sterile power amp.
But regardless, nice amp dude!
