I'm planning on getting a new amp, I have around $650 to spend. I dont play in a band yet, but plan to start a punk/rock band in college. I have been looking at the Peavey Valveking series, but don't know which of them to get. Any suggestions would be appreciated

Dont see a poll dude.

Valvekings are nice, but not the best.
it depends what type of music.
valveking can do everything well.

IMO get the 112 and swap out the speaker.

The VK will do punk well. I'd try to either get the head and a different cab or a 112 and swap the speaker. The latter option would be cheaper but might not have the headroom you require for cleans.

The benefit of the former is that you wouldn't have to pay money later on for a cab and head. The Valveking's stock speakers are the worst feature about the amp.

yep i polled. i used to have a VK and I played ska/punk on it, so it should be alright for what you need.

Personally I'd rather rub my testicles on a cheese grater than play through a Valveking ever again, but that's just me.

warehouseguitarspeaker.com make a Celestion Vintage 30 clone called a Veteran30. $70.

Eminence makes a Texas Heat, Man O War, and actually one called Red Coat which might suit you well. $75- $85 range.

I didn't vote but a 112 is what I'd go for.


...nice one Slicker!

I have been kind of lurking over on the VK thread, but there was a train wreck earlier and I am uncertain of survivors! Be that as it may, the thread has some great info and clips of VK112's with different speaker arrangements. I am sticking an Emminence Cannabis Rex in mine next week.

Emminence has a great feature on their site that allows you to hear the different speaker voicings with (presumably) the same exact gear and nearly the exact riff; great tool.

Note that this is likely not what a VK will sound like, but it will give you an idea as to the differences in the speaker tones.

Good luck.
