Peavey ValveKing 212
See below

UTILIZATION

Manuel clear, detailed but not sufficient

SOUNDS

On a gibson les paul studio's round, warm, powerful clean and beautiful harmonics lead.
On a Telecaster, that's where we see potential, though his clean, precise slamming his lead, clear, very long, indeed twank to fall, beautiful harmonics little is left for heat lamps for an hour .

the sound is brighter than a Vox AC 30 CC2 but a little less dynamic (linked to Chinese lamps). the vox is 3 times more!

OVERALL OPINION

Unbeatable value for money, let the heat through or you may be disappointed at first ...
it's a bit much for a room but very well together, no pedal provided a pity! The spring reverb is a bit shit but it's not too bad!
9 good because at this price, there's nothing that surpasses it ... a transistor amplifier has a different dynamic, it's like eating pasta without salt: With the ValveKing, no problem c is identified but not too!
qd same attention to low, keep the walls!
very heavy, difficult to transport, provide a skateboard!
your kids away from the back of the amp! Crame this severe and the shield of the 4 lamps over 90 degrees ... and if you have no heat in your studio in the winter, do not hesitate, you can easily heat the room (over 300 Watts / hour)
With that, at this price, do not push it back down to the valve amp many much more expensive brands!

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!!

Peavey ValveKing 212
Amp lamps 100 w. two speaker outputs. Clean channel with bright, saturated with a lead channel (well it seems because I have never seen the diffrence). I had the footswitch, which of course is not sold with the amp. There is a button to change channels and Inrush the lead but the alter. So it seems that one must have enough volume for the lead lev plays its role of boost. I could never vrifier this info as a 100W lamps, 2 trs dj is strong! Moreover in rpt, I played that one and a half or two. Once in the collection's outdoor concert I 4 jou!
I put seven for the price, power and opportunities, it is top. Just the problem of lead which is a shame. Then saw his weight would have had to put two grips on cots to carry two or even install smoothly.

UTILIZATION

The config is very simple, just that I find the sound palette when turning the button is not extraordinary, especially for bass.
In short, what is embtant most is its weight. 31kg! it's super heavy, especially when there is only one fist. The devil and the muscle are essential. 100W and in fact it is standard for an amp lamps. It has nothing do with a transistor amp, it must be said to double or even three! Rflchissez So before you buy (I have sold because of), Has it need so much power! for if it is to play especially on a 2 amp lamps o normally it is recommended to play two-thirds. In the more he must carry around 30kg more than a hand whenever it carries! well good luck.

SOUNDS

Super clean sound, is the bright INTERESTED trs. The channel is saturated hot little we let the heat lamp. I find that when you push the gain saturation drooling a little right and same lack of precision. But hey ca is a great amp for the price lamps and an alternative to INTERESTED Mesa amps way too expensive!

OVERALL OPINION

I kept a year, I like the sound, its grain. However it is far too powerful and too heavy forcment. The lead does not work when playing normally, ie 2.
C'tait my first amp lamps, I will not regret it, but I opt for a Submitted 30W lamps with one HP. So I lift 10Kg less, and I can get a little Submitted volume to heat lamps. And I still room!
This is an amp, I think, who plays the destiny collection outdoor (and even when you have a sound system and it is transplanted, I ask myself) or those who mtal the trs and should play hard! So what n'tait not an amp for me.
Otherwise there is the 50W which is less than 100 and less than 10 kg and is a good solution evokes all the problem above, or the classic 30 for those who are connected more blues rock / or hard rock. Me, I opt for the Laney VC 30.

See the opinions prcedents. CHARACTERISTICS Trs good, for a price more than adequate.

UTILIZATION

Trs easy to use, rglages enough of this type of combo: Resonance, prsence, the knob of "texture" has the rear is not bad to get the sound you seeing.

The BTE is heavy, but it's even easier to carry only two bodies. rpter to go or live, it's very practical, especially since we just stick it up 8HP (2 * 4 * 12) thanks to the two exit.

SOUNDS

For rock, hard rock, blues: the distortion is perfect. boost gain ...
for the metal, he must stick a stronger distortion pedals, and it was bright with the treble normment nickel and harmonics.

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using nol and I do it again this choice is the foot, for that price is the best I think.

I love the most: the texture knob

I tried a lot of other models in this price range (in transistor) with Marshall, Peavey, line6. and finally I chose the one.

- RMS Power: 100W into 4, 8 or 16 Ohms swichable,
- Four 6L6GC power lamp lights and three 12AX7 prampli,
- Two switchable channels indpendants Footswich (must not come with the bought separately)
- Indpendante EQ for each channel,
- Channel Gain / Volume contrlable by footswich,
- 2 HP Valveking 12 "
- CONTRL with Reverb Volume,
- Effects loop,
- CONTRL of Rsonance and Presence,
- Simulation Slecteur Class A / AB Brvet.

UTILIZATION

I've bought there is the price 2mois.Parlons first report qualitprix EXCELLENT ... Obviously this is the best day of his catgorie.Personnelement PQS have yet had the opportunity to test sc but that will not soon believe me ^ ^. If it's bin good for tjs jou in a room if we play with the volume at the lowest it's just that when it comes out of 2 HP.
Dj I tried a few times to push and I can say that they play well 2Hp ca rle spits really sound .... it will hold a concert without problem.
For the buttons they have simplified it enough t ny has not too much just what is (at the same time There is no full-function as some amp or you do not find it ...)
they are not sensitive trs so we can go for the tourn ... but you get the sounds that tjs DSIR has provided you have the hardware (a PDAL PARCI speak does no harm ...)
Inconvnien A: Obviously the weight but not c trs serious you just have a person who has big arms prs you.

SOUNDS

The clean sound is really great guys at peavey we did a good job over the gain knob is quite acute for intressant.Donc for clear sound nothing to say you Chipot a bit with the buttons and find you problem without the sound you want.
This now turn to the disto ... Obviously it is hot and sending low-bcp (particularity of tube amp.) it output level lev but personally sending too low (thank you pedals to solve the problem. ..) if I say more ben is a powerful faith trs volume pushed ... by a little knob for rgler against the gain is not sensitive enough you really have to see the tourn c diffrence.Avec the humbuckers really gnial of jou with this amp, the classe.Il rsonnance is also a very original brand ...

OVERALL OPINION

Too bad the footswitch does not come home ... Otherwise excellent amp in this price above all with 7 lamps Lampl mm quan ...) To really be perfect it must have pedals FFACE all its default ca ...
excellent amp to make the transition (from a small 20-30W have the money to an amp head with a spar ...) volume more than enough power I think I would do this choice Devaya if I bought an amp-de800euros. (WARNING IT IS A 500 EUROS ON THE INTERNET BUT IN FRANCE AND BELGIUM CATALOGUE PRICE 649 EUROS IS AND IF YOU GO IN GERMANY THE ESSENCE PAYRE) I got a 580 l

Peavey ValveKing 212
Everything said prcdement t

UTILIZATION

The use of not asking particulirement comptence, turn the knobs as you love the treble, bass, is just the manual for details on the footswitch for example. sounds to me more personally and despite weighing sduit consquent enough (31kg: P), we say he deserved! lamps trs cool quickly, and 10 minutes it is transported without problem me.il just missing the footswitch which costs slightly expensive for what it is ... the only good relationship with your comerce prfr can serve!

SOUNDS

I play a lot of mtalcore, and his found his account, the distortion is excellent, and the booster is nice to use, really for absolutely no mtal I regret, I jou climbs on a G400 emg 81 and 85 and I have nothing else to say, that happiness

for clean I use a ibanez af95, rather then jazz, and mttant the selector in the middle of the guitar sound j'obtient trs little more friendly I am dtach of good low trs , treble Submitted but not garish and bright button adds a little treble and gives her a moin renfermet contrrement other amps I essayle clean makes great when you attack the strings, it does not have this cot "soft".

OVERALL OPINION

I use it recently, but its either repeated or scene has a huge potential, only sound good, I tried some other amps before that lchez marshall especially mg100dfx one (forget the IDE to buy it from the pub more than anything else, its not ring marshall, and any Manir sounds bad ...) and the AVT 100 (it is soft, I personally have not AIM!) + avt100X (same version, moin CHRE, but nothing really sound different), short for the peavey, but is heavy certeil qualitprix level report, it is completely unbeatable, I remake this choice without hesitation, to amp all lamps is an excellent deal (ps: I got a 519 during sales, and some Woodbrass it is only 10 more expensive throughout the year, its worth it! knowing that its original price is 649)

Polaris 100 watts all-tube Class A / B (with knob to slide Class A)
A clear channel with volume, bass, mid, treble and brilliance
Saturated channel with gain, volume, bass, mid, treble and boost volume and gain
Spring Reverb belton (2 shows) and a volume knob for any adjustments
Damping a section of the reactions that gre loudspeakers by two factors, the presence that the peak and gre resonence Amortization of two speakers
Far enough!

UTILIZATION

The amp is convenient and intuitive, we find immediately the right setting, the only hik is its weight, was killed on the stairs ... but it's worth it;)

SOUNDS

This amp did sound rather trench reminds the Mesa Boogie Rectifier is a high gain amp, but while Polivalente muscle!
He respects the sound of each scratch and is extremely versatile, the clean sound is incomparable with the competition in this price range (almost always a transistor or hybrid in this power range), it is hot and so flattering that since I find it hard to play on a transistor amp!
Cot saturation is trs Polivalente, the crunch (already present on the clean channel has very heavy volume and play) a saturation hyper powerful boost with the gain, the velvet for any guitarist who likes to be heard!

OVERALL OPINION

An Excellent amp I possde past year and a half and never made me that default is a solid amp that sounds beyond all hope in this price range. I tried a lot of amp and only the B52 and other Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier (foix many more expensive) had caught my attention. The value for money and amazing and this amp did not flight the appellation of king of the lamp!

Peavey ValveKing 212
100 watt tube amp etc all that may have an amp setting database options plus a gain boost a bright reverb etc ...

UTILIZATION

It takes a little time for much of the ITS that will not be the same for that play alone or with a group even in concert.faut not hesitate to turn all the knobs and the heat is lampes.je 8

SOUNDS

It is quite Polivalente (example I play a piece of atmosphere I set my sound then just APRS I play a rock-n-roll hop j presses the bright I ride the reverb in 2 seconds radicalmeent j have to change son.idem the distortion but I not use the gain boost.) sound is clear and warm unlike what I have been able to read the bass are waiting vous.la metal distortion is pretty even when I try to j rule a little fuzzy but it works also need to have the patience.je played with a ibanez sas32 rises from 59 seymour model and jazz with a pedal set including wahwah Tubescreamer big muff phase 90 delay effects ... well Resorte trs the clear sound with very little saturation.j loves his bright in the clear though that we can not use the entire temps.la fuzzy distortion or modern is nice too.

OVERALL OPINION

I have the last 2 months and I waited to have a little goes around the engine before posting this avis.j loves the power of the sound does have a real clear sound that is not no recess on a transistor . I love not the weight: 30kg Remember the devil or the beefy buddies! j was never trying to tube amp for a possible purchase because everything was completely innacesible see trs expensive for all mortels.quand I saw him at the shop and saw the price j j ai fonc.le qualitprix report is 11/10! I would do without this choice hsiter!

Peavey ValveKing 212
Still the same amp in the other comments ...

UTILIZATION

Too bad the pedal switch is not supplied with. In addition it is expensive. The reverb is not switchable pedal switch, it's a shame.

SOUNDS

The clean sound is magical, but we must add a lot of harm. Bright button is useless, it makes too sharp.
To play the bulk metal, you have to have microphones on powerful: even with my EMG 81 (in 18volts) I put the distortion in depth and I play on the low gain input for potato + ...
But like that, I get exactly the sound I wanted metal.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had two months.
What I like most: the sound that really makes clear tube amp, it filled the room.
Too bad the combo is not behind closed for the metal would have been better anyway.

With experience, I referrer this choice because I found my sound, and I can not change it.

Then:
- 6L6GC power tubes and lamps pramplification 12AX7
CONTRL-textured, patent by Systm PEAVEY
-2 Indpendants channels set with the footswitch ((! Not supplied with the amp ==> 40))
CONTRL-of rsonance, Prsence and Reverberation.
-Effects loop
-Jack for HP parallle
Reverberation spring with CONTRL-level
....

UTILIZATION

Manuel provided in French, which explains well DIFFERENT knob and push button.
"I took about 1 hour to find the sound of my dreams, very easy to grip.
-The footswitch 40 is probably less then nine hand and offers a simple Accessibility assistive trs between channel Clean / Lead and Boost

SOUNDS

-I play the pltot mtal and I must say that this amp is really perfect, I got it today and I was not able to push the sound too (but I must say that a 100W sends sec) I'm barely 2 / 10 and jou alone at night is perfect.
"I have for now a multi-purpose pdalier Korg AX100 but I am considering a new pdalier finally we will see later
- The sound is very pure, a little gem, the clean is really excellent, we feel the roundness of sound and really LEAD power.

OVERALL OPINION

It is a 100W combo amp lamps! I bought new about 40 520 the footswitch and I'm really not! is the price I think it was worth it!
I chose this amp because the base when I was playing with my drummer, I could not hear me and jou often given anything (I had one of Metroverb Attax Hughes & Kettner of 50W transistor) so much that you make a 100W amplifier lamps, you can feel the difference.
TO BUY eyes closed!
Good luck!
