Bugera 333xl combo or Peavey valveking?

Like the title says, I need advice on which amp is best suited for me. I can get them for roughly the same price. I play rock mostly but I also need a good clean tone. Bands like Zeppelin, pink floyd, as well as some indie stuff. It's mostly for band practices and gigs-although it will probably get miked up if we gig.

Thanks

Valveking combo or head? If it's the head, I'd go with the VK.

Try and go for a super cheap used valveking, like 200 bucks or so. And then mod the shit out of it.

Loved the clean on the Valueking head. You can some really nice tone with the "texture" option they have. Wasnt a fan of the distortion. Took it back and paid a crap ton more for a Mesa Roadster, but I couldn't be happier. You might be able to get a pedal for better distortion though. Might be a good cheap option for ya. Don't know about the Bugera.

I wouldn't really recommend either of those for the genres you play. I would personally be looking for a used DSL401 combo. A Bugera v55 or a Peavey classic 30 would also be worth a look.

out of the two options, 333XL. Higher quality, IMO
