hey guys

i was thinking of a marshall jcm stack but its just too big for me atm

was just wondering if a peavey valveking 212 can do all the hi-gain stuff

They both can, but you should seriously try out a Laney GH50L stack.
It can get pretty damn brutal without the need of a booster pedal.
Look into it, it doesn't hurt the wallet too much either

I payed $1200 AUS for the head.
It's a brilliant amp.
Good thing is, when I was gunna buy it, I was going to buy a Randall originally, but the shop guy said "nah, in time, you'll realise it's all about tone"
So after some playing, I bought this.
Best investment ever.
Built like a tank, sounds great, very versatile and it's sexy too
