I bought a Peavey Valveking awhile ago. As most of you know the Stock speaker in the Valve King is a bit...well...crappy.

I play all kinds of metal, and the tone to be considered is Gus G's of Firewind of the album Alligance. Now I know I don't have his gear and what-not, but I want something in that line but not exactly. I am looking to install a Celestion Vintage 30, but the price for one here in South Africa is very expensive. I would like some suggestions and alternatives.

Dunlop MXR Zakk Wylde OD
Dunlop Crybaby Classic
Boss ML-2 Metalcore
Boss DD-6 Digital Delay
Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor

Basically anything that's not the stock speaker will be an upgrade. You may want to check on some of the offerings from Eminence as they're generally less expensive than the Celestions.

You're in South Africa? Ever hear of a band called Monday Morning?

If you like metal, Do not go with the Vintage 30. I went with the celestion GT100 (hot 100) as it is called. The Celestion GT-75 would also work nice.

Lynchworm: Yeah, I heard that the Vintage 30 would not be the best choice for metal. Are the GT100 and GT-75 cheaper than the Vintage 30?

Kendall: Don't know if you can get Eminence in SA, I will check with my dealer tomorrow Sorry, Monday Morning hasn't hit SA yet!

Thanks for the tips guys, keep 'em coming

Worst case scenario is you can probably have some shipped in from a dealer in Europe or America.

I ask only because they had somewhere in the neighborhood of twice the amount of radio play in Africa that they did in America when pushing their last album a couple of years ago. They're kind of a niche market band so I'm not surprised.

In the U.S. You could get the 100 for $50.00 from avatar speakers. Not all places sell them that cheap but they are definately available for less than the vintage 30
