Peavey ValveKing 112
Tube amp 50W Class AA / B

UTILIZATION

Simple configuration (that is what an amp, need to find fiddle)
Equalizer and independent channel volume
Reverb for both channels, only problem

SOUNDS

For clean sounds, it's really not bad at all.
The crunch, no.

OVERALL OPINION

I changed the bulbs to put the Mesa 6L6 power and EHX 12AX7 preamp in.
It changes everything.

I changed the HP G12 for CELESTION, and it sounds much better.
But it is not that.

The trick is to have the proper pedals to get the sound I want, and that's unfortunate.

C'pas a choice I do it again, unless I was the large metal.
(This is my first real tube amp)

Peavey ValveKing 112
A power of 50 Watts developed by HP 12 "Valve King VK112 on has two 6L6GC and three 12AX7.

2ch, bright and saturated, the diode clipping full channel saturated ...

It has a reverb, an effects loop with protected entry and a selector control speaker response (resonance) which I have not yet understood the full meaning but which has an influence on the sound.

UTILIZATION

The manual, I had not, so that's done.

Setup is simple!

Clearly, a button bright, super efficient, volume, equalization (typical Fender).
Lead by a boost, gain, equalization (typed Marshall).

SOUNDS

The clean sound is great, very fenderien, very bright.

Sanal the lead is not great, ca saturates very straight and very chemical drafts (I know that this concept is very subjective but for me it means that it is not a saturation that comes from lamps but also diode clipping).

In short you have understood, the lead channel is probably good for playing metal or something even more gore, but for blues, rock or even hard to the former, it is not quite right ... (Fortunately have found on the internet for a mod to bring things old-school, in summary, by-passes a floor preamp (of 4) and the diode clipping, and then frankly, it's pretty cool!) .

OVERALL OPINION

Good to be clear, this is an exchange, I do not think I'll buy, because 50 Watt all-tube, it's a little ears bleed and it is oriented modern.

I repeats the clean sound is great, the lead goes well with the mod, but (it is loose) for me it is not.

The value for money is very good (attention, discount super fast and in my opinion it is better to buy secondhand), but not for music hairy.

In conclusion, I do not think I would do this choice, but you understand that it is rather a mismatch between what I play and what it is doing.

SOUNDS

Not much to say about this amp! Essay in the store, clear sound and overdrive not great. It looks like the transistor. It does not feel the heat lamps. Dcevant. At least for the record blues rock, mtal try.

OVERALL OPINION

See other amps in this price range! Can be the windsor (not tried), the Blackheart.
