Three things: 1. If you lean towards the DRRI, I would recommend the '68 Custom DRRI. and 3. If you like Darrell Higham's sound so much, and he plays a Peavey, why don't you just get the Peavey? Of course, if you're plugging in a solidbody guitar with s'coils or 'buckers, it's not going to sound like a Gretsch with P90s plugged into the DB. Frankly, I hated his tone, but obviously each to own, ymmv, kind of thang. Based on this clip alone, I would not buy the Peavey. If it were me, I'd get the '68 Custom DRRI. Or both.
