I'm looking into buying a Peavey Valveking 112 soon, and i'm going through a Children of Bodom phase, and what would i need to make a VK do that, if not possible, what else would you suggest in the same pricerange?

I don't think the VK has enough gain for either of those sounds. Have you tried it?

Unfortunately i haven't yet, but i would be willing to use pedals if nessecary.

I like the Valveking for metal too when it's boosted. I find it just gets too mucky on it's own.


The sweetest metal setting I ever got was when I dimed the mids, kept the bass low, boosted the treble, kept the gain at 7ish and then I boosted the amp with a TS-9.


I swear to god it was like insta-Lamb of God tone.

I'm thinking about a 112, but I'll have to try it out for myself first.

You would definitely need pedals. The VK is great for like a regular rock type sound, but children of bodom would be very difficult to dial in, imo.


Children Of Bodom use basic tone controls (mids at around 6/7, everything else around 3).

The fact is, that sounds HORRIBLE on most amps.
Sounds like Fiddy is challenging Yngwie at guitar.

save the money you'd use on pedals and buy this

heard good things about it for metal

Yeah, i've looked into that, and it would be great, but i'm known to go through different phases of music, from soft blues and jazz to death metal, and i would like a versatile amp. How versatile is the Randall?

I've been recommended that many times, it sounds like a great amp.
However, the lack of a headphone out jack (for recording purposes cause I'm too much of a cheap bastard to mic it) makes me sad.

Ooh i've finally found a thread about the 112

It is an all tube amp right?

And you can just run effects pedals through it like a solid state amp?

1. Yep
2. I should think so.
