I have about 500-550 bucks to put on a new amp setup. I'm thinking maybe the Valvking 112. I play in a hard rock band and also a more classic rock oriented band, so I'm thinking that a VK with a bad monkey should cover all of these tones needed.

Any thoughts on this.

nope. its an analog od on a tube, try the VK 112 and a Ibanez TS-9, it will run you about. . .$500 plus shipping or tax

I can actually get these at a guitar store not too far away, so shipping shouldn't be a concern.

I've heard the BM was a TS copy basically. Anyone wanna gimme some info here?

dont know about this monkey of badness that you speak of, but i own the vk 112, and although it puts out just about any tone you can handle, on top of volume that will literally cause your ass to implode on itself, it is probably the best/cheapest tube amp you can get for the money.

and im serious about the volume, i put mine any higher than 2/10 and it hurts my ears, i'd hate to see what this bad boy does at the nursing homes.

Yeh, I've played one of them before. I just want a thicker gain sound on it, and I was wondering if the BM would work for this type of thing.

^ The bad monkey's a great little OD, also try a Boss SD1 which is the same price. If you want a fatter tone you could also try an eq pedal

Yeh, I've thought about an EQ pedal too. I probably won't have much money left after and amp and od, so I thought about maybe a Behringer one. I saw some good things about them in a thread a few days ago.

Play the amp for an extended period of time before you decide that you need a pedal for it

i bought one and its great on my tube combo
i say definately get it, its a great pedal.
by itself, it has a classic rock sound, and with distortion as a boost, its insane.
its makes my solos super charged. adds like 2 mins of liquid sustain to notes too.
and its only 60 dollars!

The TS9 is also an analog od....a very good one granted.

The bad monkey should work fine, also look at the Boss OD3 and BD2...just mess with a few.
