Along with Johnnyzzz I am also wondering about the Valveking 20 head.

What I would like, is some advice on is this: Should I look for a good deal on the VK 20 head or continue to play around/upgrade my VK 112?

My situation: First of all I love my VK 112. The only thing I have had to do to it done to it since I got it is to replace a fuse. I changed the speaker some time ago and I have a few extra bucks saved so I've been looking at boost pedals and trying to sort out a replacement tube set. That's option 1.

Option 2 is this: Sell the VK 112 and use that and the other cash for the VK20 head.

My wife and I have a new baby in the house so I'd like to be as quiet as I am able so the variable power (1W, 5W, and 20W) of the VK head sounds like it would be nice. Also I think it has a headphone jack for completely silent play. It can directly connect to a computer/recording device which would be pretty cool to play with too. I plan on making a cab with a spare speaker if I get the head.

I'd like to upgrade but I'm not exactly sure which way is most useful. I already have the 112 and could get some toys to go along with it or I could get a "new" amp it might be that same thing I had.

Also, I play blues/rock and some metalish stuff too. I'd rather have nice cleans that a metal distortion though. And I know that this amp isn't really made for that anyway. I only play at home for my enjoyment so no need for lots of volume for (like performing). Any advice would be very appreciated!

Thanks!

I'd consider a Vypyr VIP 1. Sounds good at low volume and has a decent metal tone and good cleans. I just bought one for my daughter and it's a nice little amp.
