If you play more metal-esque stuff, get the B-52. MOST reviews on websites aren't generally too accurate from my experience.

umm I own the at-112 and I've played a lot on the peavey... I've got to say the b-52 (in my taste) rapes the peavey...

Eh, I've heard that happens to the occasional person, but in terms of sound and tone it's going to beat out the VK.

If you're planning on buying new, make sure to test both out though. (And if you're buying used, demo it as well haha).

I've never had any problems with my b-52

it's actually a really versatile amp. can do any sound the valveking can do, but better, and the gain goes quite a bit higher

If it breaks, you can take it back and get a new one. You don't buy a ValveKing and play death metal out of the box. It's just not that kind of amp.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

This, ive owned both, and the B-52 rapes the VK in both cleans and distortion/overdrive.

From what I understand the reliability issues with the B-52 have been fixed. The first few batches had severe overheating problems, and that caused them to go ape-crap. But for the past few years I think, they've added fans to the amps, which cut down on the overheating greatly. I've had mine for a year and haven't had a problem. Great amp if you're wanting death metal tones with a great clean channel.

The problems Ive read in the B-52 thread have made me uneasy about purchasing one of these too.. But from what I hear of it, it sounds amazing (Netmusicians + some people profiles on ultimate guitar)

I believe in the "personal opinion" school of thought, I doubt you've heard of it. Now, go waste your time on something that doesn't annoy me
