Just like my Hot Rod Deluxe years ago, my Delta Blues has lost some functionality. Trem and reverb are both out. I've never opened the DB, but from what I remember of the old Peavey Classic 30 mod site, it's a 3 layer board with ribbon connectors between the boards. A PITA to work on, in other words. But me being the frugal guy I am, I hate to see perfectly good transformers, speakers, cab and chassis go to waste. I'd like to rebuild it to a classic circuit and do away with the PCB board. So what to do with 4xEL84 and 3 12*y and SS rec? I've thought about a vox, but I don't know if how it would be with SS rec. The JCM800 is a known and loved design that came with SS rec. I could do a JCM800 pre with a 4xel84 power section, but again I don't know how it would sound with el84s instead of el34s. I could even do Bassman/JTM45 pre with Rob's mods. Y'all have any Frankenstein ideas?
