Hey my mate just got the valve king 100 head and the straight cab.
Ive heard mixed reviews about this amp. Some say its amazing and others are dead against it?
Also the matching cab... good idea bad idea?
Also note: he has no intentions of changing speakers or valves etc.
I just want to know peoples views and what they think.
Cheers.

Pretty bad amp, typically awful Peavey cab.

Is he buying new? He does have better options.

Depends on what he uses it for. But for 600 pounds thats a waste, he could have done much better.

He says he will eventually get gigging, which he might but not for a long shot.
So mostly home use. Also another note is that its for Pop Punk mostly. haha.

The amp sounds astronomically better through a different cab.

He could've done alot worse anyways. Fairly middle of the spectrum, good choice IMO.
He should really think about getting a new cab with v30's at some point though.
In the end, he'll sound good playing what he's playing.
Tell him to check out the Official Valveking thread and just go over the whole first couple posts. There are some very simple things you can do to improve it's tone.
