Fender Blues Deluxe. 5 tubes, 40 watts, Fender cleans, more "classic" overdriven sound than Hot Rod series. Some people argue that it's a perfect match for a Tele.

Peavey Classic 30 has some reputation of being not reliable when old. Older models are famous for tubes rattling like crazy and there are soldering problems. As far as I remember there are two circuit boards that are soldered together at a 90 degree angle and the soldering gets loose with the time from vibration, some amps break constantly. Also the amp as it is doesn't have pristine fendery cleans, maybe if you change the speaker, but it's probably the circuit


I always get confused between the blues Deluxe and hot rod Deluxe. I think the BD is the better of the two?

The Peavey Classic I was referring to was one of these dealies, not the 30/20/delta/etc:

Yes, you actually wrote what kind of Classic you meant, I as usual read it inattentively.


Yeah BD is considered to be a better more classic version... now, ten years ago when more extreme music was popular HRD seemed to be more favored in general. There are several generations of HRD though and I don't know what the difference is between them

the biggest difference between HRD amps is when they went from silver to black on the chassis, I think V3? They tightened up the bass response and fixed the dirty channel up, also made the EQ a little more sensitive. otherwise they're about the same. I have an old blues jr, played the black chassis one and still sprung for a cheap silver chassis version.

also yeah blues dlx is the better of the two, tweed tolex, they voiced it a little warmer, nicer drive channel too. if I remember correctly j mascis had one pointed at his head for Dinosaur jr shows, either that or some other old tweed fender I can't remember.

At the time of their 2017 Rig Rundown it was a Twin Reverb, though Lou had a mic'd up tweed combo behind his stage amps I don't think they mentioned and also said J used to have the amp that's pointed at his head over on the bass side of the stage, so it's possible that was his too.
