Sorry dude I think everyone is confused by your post...

yeah, this is a very confusing post. I'll sell you my 50 "Watch" valveking 112 for $300.
#5
Ok so i was considering buying a 75 wat peavey valveking for 350 bucks plus tax, however in order to be able to afford it i would have to sell me 30 wat epiphone dsp red amp and either my metal zone pedal or my cry baby. Im not sure if it is a good idea. My influences on music are Angus Young, Jimi Hendrix and Deep Purple.

Still confused....

Peavey doesnt make a 75 "watt" valveking. Are you talking about the 50 watt combo or the 100 watt head?

What the hell is a 30 wat epiphone dsp red amp... Are you talking about the Epiphone Firefly 30 DSP Guitar Amplifier

Honestly you are better off going with the Peavey Windsor.. Check them out when you get a chance..

Why go with the combo when you can get a halfstack for the same price...
#17
sell the epiphone and the metal zone, get the windsor half stack and a boss SD-1 to boost it's gain when needed. unless you need a two channel setup, this will be perfect but get it before the price goes up again

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

get the peavey combo dude
but the boss metal zone isn't very good, i have one and don't like it very much
the distortion on the peavey will be much better sounds
#21
hmm why is the windsor better, its 500 bucks plus tax btw a full extra 150 bucks to be honest i cant actually afford the windsor. What about the valve king is it still worth it and will the amp distortion still sound better?

The Windsor is a nice amp, but if the TS needs cleans, it's a no-no.

Some genres would help.

sell the metal zone man, wahs are defonatly more useful than "metal" distortion pedals for classic rock.

yeah but the windsor is a different story, its a different league than the VK, even though the stack is much cheaper. its the only 400 half stack worth buying. anyways, look at ibanezpsycho, he uses a stack because he has the money, and it SOUNDS BETTER, even though it may be overkill he doesnt NEED to have it on ten all the time.

No thanks, that Ampeg will do just fine.

Ts, do you need cleans? You haven't answered that yet, and if you don't, the Windsor is fine. But if you do, you will be very dissapointed with it.

Yea, well, ummm, ok, I got it, What if I am only 4'2 huh? Then its just right.

Too bad I am 6'1, and yea, I am only messing around with ya. Truthfully I like my combo because I am only a bedroom player, so it doesn't have to go anywhere.

^id rather have a head on a 2x12 cause theyr both around 40 pounds and it makes an easy enough carry for both separately, as opposed to a 2x12 combo which could be around 85 pounds

Get the Windsor, for pete's sake.

I love how every thread these days turns into a halfstack vs. combo argument.

I know thats why im fu*kin with ya

Im a bedroom player as well and the only reason im saying it is because I have a 70 lb combo which sucks to move when I have too. And even with the casters on it, its a b!tch because of the reasons I stated lol. I'd rather move my halfstack around then that combo anyday. But that's just my opinion for personal experiences.
