I've recently come across an offer to get a brand new peavey valveking cab for super cheap. Is this a worthy investment?
#2
No.
A valveking cab is not an investment.
They arent that good and are only worth super cheap prices.

How cheap is it? The cab itself is fine. Peavey makes really good, sturdy cabs. They have some of the most tough, reliable gear that you can buy. It's just the speakers they put in their cabs that really suck.

Which is why it matters how cheap cheap is.

Meh you can usually buy good cabs with good speakers used for less then getting a crappy one and upgrading the speakers

In that case I'd skip it. $300 is way too much for that cab. I payed $120 for my Peavey 412MS. And that is a way better cab than the VK cab.

Depends on where you live. Here a cheap cab and speakers would cost $450 at the end of the day (assuming $150 for cab, and $300 for 4 speakers). A good cab would cost $500 (all used prices of course). So it's about the same.

Well I'll pass on that then. Are there any cheaper cabs (must be a 4x12) that are worth looking into? Doesn't have to be the greatest it's my first cab.

I'd look for a good 2x12 like a used avatar or something.
A good 2x12 will sound better then a shit 4x12..

I would absolutely recommend my Peavey 412MS. Assuming you can find one in the first place that is. They're pretty rare. They usually go for around $150. Unless you can spend $400+ on a cab (which gets you something like a Mesa or an Orange), it's not really worth it to spend a lot on a cab. Might as well get something as cheap as you can, if you can't hit that point initially (hope that makes sense).

No one likes Valveking cabs, much less their speakers.

Why do I want a 4x12? I like the way they project and I also need something that can "move air" without being mic'd if that makes sense. The only way I'd use a 2x12 is if I had a road case for my head (use to put the cab on top), which I don't so that kind of leaves that out of the picture.

Also, please understand I'm a kid with no job and I'm kind of broke. So try and understand that money is not something I can just whip out and spend.
