    I personally have had a Delta Blues 210 and a Classic 30 and the Classic 30 was a better fit for me. I like the tone of a 12" speaker and the cab was easier to move around. The trem on the Delta Blues is more of a square shape trem, and I prefer the triangle shape of a Fender amp, so the added trem on the DB wasn't ever used.

    He plays with “Steely Dan” and Fagen. Also does solo stuff. Good solid player.

    I fairly recently acquired the 15" version of the DB. It's an older one with the no-name 15" speaker (Eminence I think). It sounds great on stage to me. Has a voicing that cuts through and I find it easy to dial in a sound that I can hear without being too loud. Very decent work-horse type amp in my opinion.

    I once owned a DB 115. The reverb was a little weak, and the tremolo caused a volume drop.
    Other than those two issues the amp sounded pretty good with the right tubes.

    I have both an old C30 & a Delta Blues 115. I got the DB because I wanted the tremolo and was curious about the 15” speaker. The DB can be a bit “woofy” to me, the tremolo is ok, but the thing is—it seems to gain 4 or 5 lbs. every year. No kidding. With failing knees and advancing age it has become for me a beast; definitely not a "grab-and-go." Nothing wrong with it but I can cover tremolo in more portable ways. But weight may not concern most folks. I’m continually surprised at how the things that matter to me evolve over time.
