hello,i want a clear opinion for this question:peavey valveking 112 for black-thrash
metal yes with a petal or not?
#2
In my opinion, no.
It's quite muddy, isn't really voiced for metal and doesn't quite have enough gain for that kinda stuff.
I would save up a little bit more to get a decent amp more geared towards your needs.

Hm, well first video is really muddy. Second video is better though- it's a little too 'bright' sounding for their genre imo though.
In the solo of the second video though, it muds up a little- but that's probably because they've scooped the mids out a fair bit.

He can certainly get a Peavey 5150 combo (used) for about the same price as a new VK (at least, if he lives in the States, he can). He might not even need a pedal, unless he wants to tighten up his tone a bit or get a lead boost.

A couple of local guys around here have 112 Valvekings, both of them have swapped speakers and both of them are now much happier. One guy put an Eminence Legend in his and it did wonders for the low end definition. I'm thinking it will probably handle KT-66 power tubes as well (which also do great things for low end definition in amps where 6L6GC's come short).

Don't judge an amps sound from clips, they can fool you. Go play the VK and others and take your time. Used is a great way to go for a high-gain amp like the 5150/6505.

I've just always hated the valveking. Everytime Ive played one and everytime I've heard one I was never impressed. Theres solid state amps I was more impressed with. I'd just save up more money for the used 5150. I mean if you can get a valveking you can wait a month or two longer and get something better.
