So, I just decided to buy a 200$ Peavey VAlveKing Royal 8. But I just decided to sell my Nintendo Wii, so that will pay for the amp. Should I spend some of my money to get a better amp? I would only have like 100$ I'd wanna spend cuz I want a laptop.
EDIT: I play classic rock, and some heavey distorted stuff. I'd prefer tube, and this is bedroom practice.

There is nothing out for the Wii, and I have a 360. 360>Wii>PS3. 360 has ALL the great stuff. But thats not what I wanna talk about. I want to know if for an extra 10$ I can get a better amp. Better enough that I can tell.

wii sucks. it bored me after a day. now it just sits there looking all small and pathetic beside the monster of a 360


anyway, i don't understand you. have you bought the amp for $200 already? or is there an additional $100 (making the total $300) or have you only $100 for an amp because you want a laptop. confusing

lol, let me restate.
Im gonna get 200-250(maybe 300) for the Wii alone, I'm not sure. But I have money which I would be willing to put towards my amp. So I'm looking to speend 200-(possibly)400. 400 is ONLY if there is an amp amazingly better than the Royal 8(or a 300 amp)

arrr. I have 400$ to buy an amp for classic rock. I would also have to be able to use a pedal to get good distortion for really heavey stuff. I would only like to spend 300$ at the most UNLESS there is a really good amp for 400$ The amp would be for my room practicing.

what do you mean by "heavy" distortion? I know with my V16, I can get QOTSA, and Heavy Silverchair tones (think Freak or Israel's Son) out of it without a pedal.

It's voiced well for classic rock. That's its specialty. Sell the damn Wii and get the amp, you know you want it.

If you just need a bedroom amp, I don't see the point of getting a tube amp that's higher than 5watts. 5Watts is loud for playing in your bedroom....turn it up far, and it can be even too loud, depending on your housemates/neighbors. Unless you're planning on jamming with friends in a band, with drums and other instruments, the Royal 8 is what you need.

I have the Royal 8 and play classic rock on it, and it's perfect. Playing heavy music like metal will work with a good distortion pedal, but if you play metal more than classic rock, then get a different amp that's more suited for metal.

And what exactly do you mean by "better"? What "better" features are you looking for?

by better, I mean better sound, better for my style, better all around. Ohh, and I'll be playing Classic ROck and bands like Primus and Metallica, up to Haste the Day and As I Lay Dying.
