Peavey Delta Blues vs Fender 65 Deluxe Reissue (Clean Test) Comparison
We’re checking out the difference in tone between the Peavey Delta Blues and the Fender 65 Deluxe Reverb Amplifier on the clean channel. Both amps have quite a bit of headroom on clean and they both naturally start to break up once you get them to about 12 o’clock on the volume. Both amps have different power tubes, the Fender has a set of 6V6 tubes and the Peavey has a set of EL84 power tubes. This gives the American made Peavey a bit of an English sound, much like the Vox in the high end frequencies. That said, it has more mid frequencies than a Vox.
Although this amp is only rated at 22 watts, it’s simply LOUD. It sounds great when it’s cranked but it can be too much for certain rooms and clubs. Getting it to break up naturally can mean having the amp really, really loud. It has no problems keeping up with a Hot Rod Deluxe, except the tonal qualities of this amp is way nicer. (or at least I think so).
