Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

Well, as much as I hate answering a "which is better?" thread, being that this is pure opinion and you told us nothing about your musical taste, in my opinion the classic 50 is WAY better.

I'd stay away from witch amps.

I've only played the 112 valveking but assuming the 212 sounds similar then the classic 50 definitely gets my vote. I owned one for a year or so and it was an incredible amp for the price.

What sounds are you looking for though?


what that guy said in your other thread^

STFU

Besides Orange> Marshall at Marshall tone
(I've owned two JCM900's, JCM800 and a Plexi and played close to all Marshall amps there are)

TS: I prefer the Classic 50, but depends what tone you want

i can name so many that don't use marshalls...

and i can name one person that has a signature peavey but doesn't use it to color the tone!!!

Eddie Van Halen with his 5150. he uses his marshall in the back to color the tone and amplifies the signal with the 5150.

Gary rossington used/uses a peavey i'm pretty sure.
And doesn't the chinese guy with the hair from dragonforce use one too?

What i should really do is spend several hours with each amp (well, I already own a classic, so that's done), and do a direct comparion with all their features/tone/durability. Maybe then we wouldn't have so many of these VK vs. Classic threads.

yea he does.

but steve miller used fenders. rory gallagher used voxes. every guitarist goes through every amp during their life tho. clapton used marshall plexis in cream, Vox AC30 in John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, Fender in the 70s, Soldano in the 80s, then got a JCM800 during the 90s, now he has a Fender Tweed Twin.

so yea. it's matter of taste. not because everyone uses marshalls. if u buy marshalls now, they get blown away by Oranges and the Peavey Windsors.

The AC30 was during the Yardbirds.

Ok....

Anyways Threadstarter: You'd have to try out both amps to really get a feel for them.
Classic=Less features, "Classic voiced", but it can handle metal too, more expensive
VK=More features (seperate EQ's), "modern voiced" (sacrifices cleans for better distortion), less expensive, more wattage

I'd go for the classic, as I believe that the tone is better, and you don't need 100w with the VK. It'd probably sound really good cranked, but with 100w, it's almost impossibe unless you have a soundproof room and have some hearing protectors. Or a really high wattage attenuator.
