my band is getting pretty good and were looking at playing gigs. so ive been looking at amps, and the peavey valveking 112 seems pretty nice http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Peavey-ValveKing-112-Combo-Amp?sku=481442 but today i saw the vox valvetronix AD30VT http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Vox-Valvetronix-AD30VT-30W-Guitar-Combo?sku=481959 and its $160 less. the peavey is 50 watts, the vox is 30. how big of a room could i play in with 30 watts? any opinions would be very appreciated

I've played with my friend who plays drums, and you may need more than 30 watts for getting your guitar over the drums without maxing our your amp, which you probably won't want to do if its brand new.

the valve king is more versitle...(cantbelieve i just backed a ppeavy over a vox..shame shame on me....)

But really its your best bet for versitiylty and loud factor... between those two

go for the peavey,

The vox is a modeler amp, and has a solid state out put.

The peavey is a valve amp and valve amps are louder then solid state amps.

Try them both out, there's a blurry line between them amps, except for the obvious differences, they're both good and around the same price.

Go with the Peavy and take the plunge into the world of tube amps. You'll never go back.
