peavey
all the way
for metal youll need an overdrive pedal with that
try a tubescreamer
its the tits
#3
no experience with the valveking, but the vox doesnt convincingly do metal (although the new AD100VT-XL would... but i have no experience with wether that would do jazz or blues convincingly
#4
The Peavey is tube, more tonefull, and louder, but the Vox has much more flexability and built in effects. The Peavey is probably better for what you want, but you might want to consider buying an OD pedal, and upgrading the tubes/speakers.

Get the 1x12 Valveking - it's a valve amp, and that means it's louder than an SS or hybrid amp. 30w valve=100w+ SS power. And the Valveking 1x12 is 50w. More than you ever need.

but maybe too much? What are your needs? will you be playing medium sized gigs? I got a JCM 800 50w and it has too much power... i cant get the sound i want because in no situation can i drive it hard enough...
#7
^ Yeah that's the thing, the 100w is insane overkill. There's always attenuators.

I would also like to play medium-sized gigs so I gues I do meed some power
#9
mr carrot is right.... sounds like valveking is the way to go for you, and as he says, theres always attenuators - weber ones are supposed to be good
#10
The 50w Valveking is perfect for gigs, so it'd be perfect for you, TS. Trust me, 50w of valve power is plenty.

well then the valveking is probably the way to go then.... the more you crank a valvetronix the worse it will sound (although they do hold up really well at high volumes) but the more you crank the valveking, the better it will sound!

listen to this guy...he is right

^ No, you don't! You'd need 100w of Solid State amp, which is what the Valvetronix is, but a valve amp is equal to 2.5x its wattage to SS - so a 50w valve amp is equally as loud as a 125w SS amp. Plus valve amps sound more musical and all-around better than SS amps as a general rule, although some specialised SS amps are good too. Put it this way: Brian May gigged with 30w AC30s. My band filled a gymnasium, my 5w valve junior was micd and my other guitarist used a 20w valve amp, unmicd, and we sounded plenty loud and great too.

but don't I need 100w for a medium sized gig?


A medium sized stadium, perhaps. My son filled a school auditorium with a 15W Palomino V16, and didn't even have it cranked. A 30W combo will handle virtually any gig.
You Don't Need a halfstack.

You Don't Need 100W.

what do you mean with upgrading the tubes/speakers?

or does anyone else know what this means?
