I heard these things break down though.

If it is for half the price it seems like a good deal.

You're thinking of B-52 or Bugera. Peavey amps are solid.

well honestly if you want something a little bit better with pretty much the same gain get a used peavey C30.

In my opinion there both just as gainny but the C30 is better quality and less grainy sounding.

I got a JSX combo at GC for $300. Why not get one of those off of them instead of a Valveking? It blows the Valveking away. GC is blowing out all JSX's and XXX's. Definately get one of those first.

EDIT: sorry, it looks like they are all sold now. only a few left in some stores.

I looked it up in the website and there are no cheap jsx's or xxx's

You have to go into a store. Not online. Sorry.

I have one and love it, its got a great tone, nice warm cleans and good gritty tones when you crank up the gain.

I tried BAGDAD tuning once, it actually was quite alright.

^wasn't that a mis-labled tag though?

I'd take a VK and swap the speaker. You'll be fine. If your budget is only $200. If your budget is $360 for example you could get a B52. Classic 30s are nice too if you can find one used. Same with the JSX/XXX.

The one I found is used at $350, I play alot of metal so I dont know if it would be the the right amp.

$350 isn't half priced, its only like 70 dollars off what it goes for new for the 112.

Buy a b-52 at-112

damn!

Sorry, I said $200 thinking it was a 112. Imo the 112 is a better deal because you only have 1 speaker to swap. Ask the guys in the VK thread or listen to Necrophagists777's clips. You might be able to find a used XXX combo or Ultra. Let craigslist be your friend.
