Building a rig for Valveking

Alright, i have the Valveking 112. I'm really just setting up my rig now and i have a weak army of an Ibanez Weeping demon, and a Danelectro chorus. I am into many different styles, between blues, thrash metal, alternative, etc. I really want to get a tube screamer first, but i would like some suggestions for building my rig

Ok I'll start it off in here--hopefully Rajoulta (sp?) can chime in, he knows a ton about this stuff.

Tubescreamer/OD pedal- tightens up your tone
New speaker- I've heard it does wonders for the VK (Warehouse Veteran 30?).
New tubes- Might as well...lol.
EQ pedal- It will really help you shape your tone, definitely worth the money! (MXR 10-band or Fish and Chips I've heard are really good).



Edit: Also, ask over at the Valveking thread, they know what they are talking about over there as far as mods go to make it the best it can be!

WGS Vet 30, EQ pedal in the loop, dummy jack in input 1, Digitech Bad Monkey. There's everything you need to make a VK, scream.

What does the dummy jack mod actually do? When I did it with my VK, it didn't make that much of a difference, but maybe I was a little tone-naive back then!

The dummy jack mod gives it much more clarity and bite. How did you set it up? Put the dummy jack in input 1 and run the guitar into input 2.

That's the low cost fix up path right there. Worry about tubes later. The Dummy jack trick just works I'm not really sure how. It add some gain and clarity. Supposedly it bridges both inserts and gives you the higher gain from insert 1 but it actually is much better than if you plugged strait into Insert 1.

(I was typing while you posted just now so I missed it)
