I can't really compare this amp to other similar ones as it's the only one i have, but this is a fine amp and i felt like it needed at least one review on MF. I use it for recording and bar gigs and it has yet to let me down in either situation. It's loud enough for small to medium sized rooms without needing to go thru the pa. I would describe this amp as having presence and character.
My style of music isn't necessarily "the blues" and i don't think the Delta Blues name should scare you away if that's not what you play. I run a Gibson SG thru an eq, Soul Food, and Boss compressor in the effects loop and i get a very rich and full tone with nice presence on the low end. I don't get ringing highs like a Fender amp, for example, gives but that's a good thing for me. I use the mid boost, which i think is a critical part of the equation. Same could be said for other amps i suppose, but like i said earlier i can't really speak too much in terms of comparison.
I've literally never used the dirty channel or tremolo, but i definitely like the reverb on this amp.
I would also recommend replacing the stock tubes with JJ's and using the factory ones for just-in-case backups, but that's not to say this amp has ever failed on me.
So in short, i think if you're strictly a lead player and/or looking for the high gain Marshall type sound you should probably look elsewhere. But if you're like me and do the singer/songwriter thing but want to rock a little and have a good clean-but-not-too-clean sound this amp fits the bill.
