I also very much liked the L5, a 2×12 inch version.This amp was used by BB King for many years and it sounded great.Although it is outfitted with four EL 84’s, its no AC-30. Later on Peavey, through its dealers, started selling Russian (Sovtek) tubes as replacements, but these tubes biased a lot cooler then the Chinese ones did.And unlike many other EL 84 combos the Delta is not cathode biased, so when you change tubes the amp must be rebased. Also if you want the amp to sound good all night long, have a tech install a fan to cool off those overworked power tubes.
This is one of the only affordable 15 inch speaker guitar amps that is not a steel guitar amp. When they first came out they were using Chinese power tubes and they sounded good.Some Fenderphiles will also want to have their tech upgrade to the Blackface correct solid core cloth covered wire.I will say again, the Blackface are the crowning achievement of Leo Fender Amp legacy. I highly recommend modding the high power Twins and Supers from the late 70’s they have an very desirable headroom, especially when Blackfaced.Plug in an SG toggle to the back pickup and you will cop the Tony Iommi Sabbath sound perfectly.I personally think that if you want the same response with a single coil guitar you will have to drive the preamp a bit harder using a clean boost like an MXR Micro-Amp.
If you are a want to be amp tech looking for his or her first project try a Traynor.
