I will probably buy the Spider Valve 212 cuz that's all I need for power and the tone is

awesome for the price

but I was wondering if it included an fx loop? I know the amp comes with fx onboard

but maybe later on I want other effects/distortion

Thanx ahead of time

p.s.-- haters please don't critize this amp; it actually sounds pretty nice; just answer my
question

The idea of the on board effects is that you don't buy effects pedals - like other solidstate moddelling amps... If you wanted an overdrive pedal, they go in front of the amp.

Wouldn't be my first choice. Go with a decent overdrive to boost the valves harder.

What's the footswitch like? Would suck if you had to go to the amp to switch effects.


i'm just goin w/ the budget and I just practice with my band, later on a little gig here and there
honest though not really into fx. I just plug and play w/ a little verb

so in other words no footswitch....yet

You don't need an effects loop for an overdrive or distortion pedal.

No, it's not. The amp is overpriced drastically. 1400$ for the amp you're talking about new over here in Australia. You can find valvekings for less.

If you plan on getting different effects and distortion pedals and what not steer away from this amp. They don't go well with effect pedals. Besides, after a while you'll probably develop an ear for tone to realize how bad this sounds.
Signatures are overrated.

IMO Spider Valves are better than VK's. I would rather have a Spider Valve anyway

True.
I'd still much rather get something all valve though.
