Are they any good? I was thinking of getting a ValveKing 112, but my parents are gay so I have to pay with my own money (mind the fact that I'm 14). Do these amps sound similar to a ValveKing? And if they don't, do they sound OK?

I've got a transtube 110 efx (40 watt) 1x10 3 years old. It's not bad. fairly decent cleans. Compared to something like a POD the fx aren't that good, but adequate compared to other low cost SS amps. It's still my go to amp for jamming at friends houses especially if a drummer is present. It has no problem keeping up with that. Although the tone isn't to bad you'll never confuse it with a true tube amp.

Most people will say get the Valveking, but for what you'd save with the Bandit I'd say the small offset in tone isn't a huge problem unless you plan to play at gigging volumes. If you're just a bedroom player/jammer rof now, then the Bandit is probably your best choice.

If all you had to go on was the forum you'd think a Decimator could cure noise caused by dodgey stage lighting and restock the ocean's population of sperm whales

I think those Peavey Transtube amps are some of the best SS amps that you can get. They have a fairly decent tone, depending on how you EQ it of course.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
