Hey guys, I'm looking into investing in my first half stack, and I remember hearing good things about the Peavey Valveking. I'm just checking in here to ask if it can do metal (Heavy) without mods or a pedal. I'm going to guitar center tomorrow to test out stacks but I need to know if it's worth my time to test it out?

Sup Tyler, IMHO, the VK needs to be boosted to really get into metal territory, and for the price there are far better amps that will do the job really well.

EDIT: If you're going VK stack, that puts your budget at around 1K yeah? What sort of metal as well?

I'm not dead set on the VK stack, I haven't even tested it out yet. I'm more dead set on either a 6505 Or a Triple Rec. My budget is about 2500$.

We're Melodic Death, so we kinda need some yummy distortion.

With a 2500$ budget I wouldn't even both with the VK tbh, at that range look at stuff like Mesa, Fryette, Engl, Rivera, VHT or maybe even Egnater, since the Armageddon is out now.

Just looked at the Egnator Armageddon. I know what I'm testing out tomorrow if they have it. I'm VERY intrigued.

I can't vouch for it personally, but given that I can boost my Egnater Rengade to do br00tz, a dedicated Egnater high gain amp will, in theory, be damn excellent.
