So I was bidding on an ebay product, when I learned it was from a starter pack...


....

Any info or reviews on the peavey nano valve 5 watt tube amp would be appreciated..


The auction is going to close in about a day, and I need to know if I should let someone outbid me, or if I scored a deal with a 120$ tube amp.

Thank you.

Peavey Nano Valve 5 Watt Class-A Tube Amplifier
My current ghetto setup:

Crate VC508 (Needs new speaker and pots BADLEY.)
Fender R15
Peavey T-60
Original LPB-1
BBE Sonic Maximizer (rack)

It's like an epiphone valve jr. Not bad, but a bit lacking in versatility.

Yeah. My thoughts were the same. I think with my multi FX I should be fine, but anyones opinions/knowledge would be appreciated.

I never played it, but I wouldn't go over $120 for it, either. You can get some neat, vintage, hand-wired stuff for that kind of money. Like an old Danelectro or Harmony.

I don't know much about it. I think these are not commonly available in the US, I have seen them advertised on European sites. From what I know of Peavey the $120 is a decent deal. However you can get a brand-new Peavey Valveking Royal 8 5watt tube combo for $200 USD. Has a kind of small speaker, but good features otherwise.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

Hah. Well depending on if this goes thru or not, I'll probably get either that or one of the crate (Palomino?) 5 watt tubes.

Crate Palomino is also a nice amp with a bigger speaker.

Yes I have actually, but you can't go wrong at that price I mean not everybody can afford 1500$ for a 10w orange amp... And that's 10w after rounding
