Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" shame!"

Peavey ValveKing 212
My first tube amp, sure there's more juice for 100Watts but insufficient for group play with 2 guitars ...

UTILIZATION

I have not had much to complain about exept that I've never played more than 10 hours without a failure: (

SOUNDS

I ended up using an old Boss GT10, rendered in low exeptionnel was really ... when there is sound! even after

OVERALL OPINION

I bought new at 500 euros and I wore 6x repair in the first year. I had to replace a lamp at my expense after only 2 days. I finally got tired of replacing the fuses (including those that require power to remove the head) and no longer uses it but I loved the sound.
Since I used 3 other lamp heads with used equipment that I have not paid more attention on the contrary, it is the only amp that I have not seen her in concert lugged reliability and never had a problem, I concluded that I really fell on a defective model and apparently I'm not the only one. Incidentally if you still want to buy it and you're on Liège, do not go to St Walburga because you will have to after sales service worthy of the name!

Peavey ValveKing 212
100W tube amp
3-channel distortion, crunch, lead ... pedalier not provided
reverb, presence, resonance
Class A / B
well that's what we know
until then no worries

UTILIZATION

The manual is nice without breaking a three-legged duck, on the other hand I do not care a bit, the config of the amp is childish, 2min hack it and found sound, after that is where concerns began, I bought the amp because I had no money and the price / quality ratio looked crisp, I quickly became disenchanted ...

SOUNDS

The sound is flat, hollow, even I draw a lot fiddling no great things and when I push the gain in the channel lead everyone cries feedback so I ... in short, a good distortion and you begin to appreciate! good will let the good player is pretty clean appreciable I play the big technical death and I admit that the channel is very nice clean sound is round, warm ... I play with an ESP EX Std, a Boss ME 50, a noise gate and NS 2 boss pedal I draw thanks to a good sound and more power.

OVERALL OPINION

I use the gear for a year, I must admit that its reliability is poor (3 returns in store for purchase), very temperamental, I played on a Marshall MG100 DFX, and the limit as they say it is better a transistor amplifier has a tube amp that marshmall (dsl c tro but good), I now play on a peavey triple X and we see outright difference, it's true that the price is tempting but wear I would say it gets to the amp oneway, save your money!
amerment I regret this choice, but it taught me that life should not make choices without taking the time to consult the advice and patience!!
