i've been looking for a new amp for quite some time now, and have quite a list of options in mind. i was wondering, is the Peavey Valve King half stack worth the money, or should i buy a nice combo instead...

basically, any advice you may have on the pros and cons of the valve king would be great!

thanks

the other guitar player in my band has a valve king half stack, and he really likes it. i used to play combo amps until i tried a stack. i could never go back to a combo. you just can't get the "ooomph" in the low end that you can get with a good stack.

Valveking combos are alright, but if you want a halfstack don't waste the money with the VK. If you're gonna go big you'll need quality and sound, and that combination doesn't come cheap.
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

Buy a good combo, the Valvekings are just ok, and you don't need a stack at all unless you're playing stadiums and huge gigs.

How much have you got to spend on a good combo?

Fender Strat/Tokai LS80>few pedals>Orange Rocker 30

yeah RHCP is right. (and if you're playing large gigs then youd have enough money to get somthing nicer)

If you do get one, I'd just get the valveking head, don't get the cab. It's unbelievable how badly the screw these amps over with bad speakers. I'd suggest getting a Carvin cab; great price, awsome sound.
