So, I currently play through a Spider III 30 Watt, and finally decide that I need an upgrade. I'm looking to spend about $400 (USD), and want an all tube combo amp. I really don't want any wattage less than 30, and the amp probably will be used for gigging. I was looking at the Peavey Valveking 112, but just wanted any available opinions, and if anybody has any other amps that they would recommend that fit this category.

Thanks!

How long would it take you to get an extra $200-300 together? Having more money to play with would expand your options a lot.

I cant. I'm getting it as a "birthday present" from my divorced dad. He gave me a price range, and I don't have any money of my own that I can spend

Even without the new speaker or tubes, the valve king will blow the spider out of the water. Also, do you and your dad have any problem with buying used? $400 goes a long way on the used market.

How about a blackheart little giant, it sounds like a monster when you use it with a distortion pedal to get the distortion.

I looked at it, but isn't it only a 20 watt?

I need something at the very least 30, this amp will be used for gigging
