I'm not sure on the Valveking. First, a 50w combo should be PLENTY loud unless you plan on playing stadiums unmic'd. The 50w version is only like $400.

I've heard mixed reviews on them, and haven't tried one myself, so I can't really say if it's good or bad. It is tube though...

What's your current amp?

Now, for the pedals, I'm not really a fan of any of them. Look at Dunlop Wah pedals (I like the plain ol' Crybaby myself), an Ibanez Tube Screamer for overdrive, and an Electro-Harmonix Small Clone Chorus.

And the guitars are both good as long as you like them.

xenn you need to be a goddamn moderator already! i have a spider II could you recommend a amp for places like the starland ballroom? or lol a bar, or ROFL school gym

Hm...a 50w combo should be fine for any of those. They would all have a P.A. System, so you could easily mic a combo amp if you had to. And, with a combo, you won't have to lug around a 90+ pound cab.

As for specific models, I'm not sure. Ask over on GG&A.

im goin to my music shop for a lesson in two days, so i'll try out amps, they have a whole room of 50w amps WOOT WOOT! anyway, i have a lotta savin

i need ONE brand for pedals, the power supply'll get all messed up if i dont im pretty sure im just gonna use fenders, single coils dont bother me

^Batteries work fine. The pedals I recommended are MUCH better. Boss pedals are *ok,* but there are a lot of pedals that blow them out of the water.

I wouldn't worry about a powersupply. At the worst, you'll have to use a battery for a pedal or two. I'm pretty sure you can get daisy chains that will let you hook up different pedals like that though.

And yes, definetly try out as many amps as possible. Don't limit yourself to *just* 50w combos either. Try anything you can.
