axerebelion's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
For the configuration disto I say what is not simple since this amp has not a good balance between treble, bass and midrange. Moreover the king valve has a knob and a knob presence resonance, cele accentuated in the difficulty in clearly setting as its rotten sound, (médiocritée of speaker). It is impossible to casiment found a good sound if you push the volume knob has more than 40 percent. For the clean sound can be all it should be something fairly simple to find an interesting sound. The manual is in English, months I do not speak English, the more I bought this amp while in France ...
This amp does not fit my style of music (metal) the metal is now wide I'm more a style between black dalia murder and gojira. J'obtiend metal sound in the metant knob resonance, presence and reverb to zero, for bass and treble at medium and medium to 75 percent. I put on are clear and distortion I use a Rocktron Metal Planet. There is a knob behind the amp that adjusts the power lamp does not put a bottom especially if you play a high volume because otherwise the amp infarction risk (I was already a muse after six months and second lamps are held two weeks). J 'uses a guitar with a virgo bc rich micro emg81 As a general rule I hate all of this amp sonoritée
I use this amp for three years I have never been satisfied, the valve king is generally sold as a very good metal amp ... For me the objective of this purchase was to find an amp that will let me oriented metal to use any device, multi effect or distortion so as to have a more lifelike. The problem is that losrque it plays in a metal band, drummer hits hard and hits hard as it must be hard to put your amp if nobody hears anything. And the king is the valve or is the problem because just 40 or 50 percent of its volume the sound is just a shit it feels to hear what a cow is slaughtered. The firm is in bad Calita speaker and his very Criare. Regarding the distal small precision I played with a guitar player who has a Laboga mr hector, and yes we also pence when it bought an amp (of credibility). With distortion of this amp I am ashamed of my group is ugly impersonel blade. What I love most, nothing. I do not say this maliciously is my opinion What I would love to the least, I will not say "all" because it would be too easy I clearly do not like the distortion and I regret that the amp Bellows as one climbs the sound. The report qualitée price I would say very low for a simple reason, even if we do not like the distortion, settings or grain (which can be modified by multi purpose) however this is not normal c is selling a 100 watt amp will be a very close shot of a 45 percent volume and 55 percent make disgusting noise for the rest. I will never do it again this election I will warn you if a vendor offers this amp to the metal you ask the right questions when you have Scalability with this amp. It is often said that an amp of this type is not made to play in her room, think you this only serves to amp it has low volume, background or to annoy your parents.

Pucelle_Dabidjan's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" And God created the poo"
In absolute terms, we can say that the controls react logically, making it easier to grip with this material. I've never read the manual, and no users I know do not read.
Several failures before the final blowout two years of use. We never get a good sound.
Here is where I want to dwell for a moment. What's that fucking joke!?
Imagine a tube amp that sounds like a transistor amp. I exaggerate but can.
One finds, in the transitions that are typical of acute architecture any lamp. But the list of benefits ends LA! The overall sound is tight, with a trend a little messy, even very depending on the settings. The dynamic is ridiculous, this head huge commitment. The guitar sound is unpleasantly changed. The unpleasantly sharp scratching, the basses are slobbering.
Add to this a little natural distortion that has this side "aluminum box in tune" amplifiers cheap manufactured with the worst crap. Sprinkle the whole with a crunch and you'll get tortured ....
Tadaaaaa ... one of the WORST tube amps I've tried so far in this category.
Only thing that saves. The fate of the trail is clean with an acceptable result. Yes, it is even beautiful when it adds a little reverb.
Unfortunately, yes dear Audiofanzine. I tried a lot of amps, and it did not at all convinced. Add to this the problems of reliability and LETHAL EXPLOSION FINAL end of life and you understand that I can not recommend to do shit with crap like that.
You will be ruined or really desperate to play on this thing. Say, for beginning and have 100w lamps, it can be an argument. Similarly, if you want to connect to large distortions, it also quite calmly cash. But we're really in the worst of the worst in all lamps. I am tempted, after this test, the note back Hughes & Kettner Warp7 I dealt with very harshly at the time. It definitely sounds better than the ValveKing.
I STRONGLY recommend the purchase occasion, except if the seller guarantees the year.
Another detail that will surely interest you. Two other groups also had this head in our region. None has been able to have more than two years. In both cases, a major breakdown occurred in this period.

Sebouze's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Very simple, no worries over the ...
but almost no effect on the sound.
Plutt I am a fan of big sound, I had not deny. But I spend at nothing. Jazz, funk, fusion, Death, Hardcore from under the cellar ...
I play PLO team in Dimarzio ...
And bin l. .. nothing ...
The clean sound is nothing transcendent (I prfres that of my Marshall 100 MDF is to say)
The distortion, then the button on the bottom ... it is dirty, a drooling everywhere, no precision, no heat, no envelope ... a big dception.
I tried it 3 times in the store, hoping that every time I could have a positive opinion on this "tube amp" ...
3 times of ... and more time passed, the more important dception silent.
I did not pay me the scholarship for a correction ... Too bad but I'll wait ...
Nase this amp is, quite simply. I sound better with my pod and my marshall (yet I do not like the sound marshall ...)
It really has the image of the entry-level ... So yes, it's not expensive, but it's bad.
I strongly deprecated ... leaves a choice of peavey, both turn to the Classic Series (the sound was!)
A big dception at any point ... at the same time, not surprisingly at this price and we understand why the mesa the tape so much ... in both cases is the same, the price is justified ...
A wrong from peayvey SERIES with this ... damage
sade's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Sound good ?.... collapsed with laughter!
Its flat. Amplified and wrong way.
One-hour test (the lost). That the guitarist get the idea that a tube amp at low prices is bad anyway. I'd rather play on a Line6! +

monsieur_banane's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
4 6L6GC and three 12AX7 lamps
Two independent channels can be selected at the foot
Independent EQ for each channel
Gain / volume boost the main channel controlled by pedals
Double speaker jacks in parallel
+ Reverb level control
Effects loop with protected entry
Resonance and Presence controls
Weight: 18 kg
All these features are, however, look very misleading!
The configuration could not be simpler. A classic. Nothing really new.
This is where the bottom hurts! How people who claim to be musicians may find this "thing" awesome??
The clean sound is nothing transcendent. Flat, without any personality. However, a good reverb for the integrated improves (slightly) the sound.
Distortion ... My God, how horrible! I never had her as a draft on an amp. To think that all the beautiful lights that shine on the inside are there only to decorate and hide it a poor circuit transistor 1950!
Drowned in the noise, the knobs have little effect on the tone. Position between the minimum and the maximum position, we must focus to see a difference. The various boost is useless, and the volume, even mounted up fails to address the severe lack of power of the head.
I used this amp for about 4 hours in a Paris studio, mounted on cabinet Peavey XXL, with a guitar Whale "Red Narwhal" equipped with Seymour Duncan. Therefore, the sound is crap that comes out entirely due to the amp head.
For the money (head + cabinet), I would advise players to invest in a good combo of another brand (eg Randall RG200-G3) which I think will be much better quality than the insult to our ears!
PS: and more it's ugly! She did absolutely nothing for her poor ...
