Everyone seems to have one why? Because it has valve in the name? They sound like scissors cutting through cardboard.

I don't have one.

I think most people do people because they're affordable, versatile tube amps. I don't know how they sound though...

also sound GREAT recorded. pretty much the perfect modern tone through a nice cab.

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

I want an amp good for playing hippie tunes. I want it to be an actual amp, not a tube amp.

i owned one for 3 days.............it had a horrible buzz whenever i played a g note or cord. so back it went for a refund. but reading here at ug the buzzing is not a isolated incident with the vk or the classic series. many people are having the same type issue.

I think the answer is that it's a very cheap tube amp but when I tried one it certainly didn't impress me. I just didn't find it a real improvement over a good modeller, or indeed any improvement at all!

I agree.
They're not that good.

This man speaks the truth.
But i think they need to have a speaker change to sound descent.

you do have to fool with the EQ for a while to get it right. it's great for broke teenagers like me who can upgrade it as I get money.

The biggest reason is that they are cheap. The second reason is that they can be upgraded.

That's a bit harsh.

They sound more like cardboard cutting through scissors.

They're not as good as some people make them seem, and not as bad as others try to make them seem.

They're decent amps for the price you pay, there are better alternatives but there are better alternatives for the price for most Marshalls as well.

+ a bunch more. OK, why is it when I search craiglist Classic 30's AND, YES AND, VK's are $300? Maybe $250? Either way, I liked the amp when I tried it. The parroting "tide" is currently "out" on the VK's but I like the amp and don't own one.

Site frequented by 13-14 year olds with no job + those same kids usually liking modern metal/hard rock + tube amp lovers on this site who are the ones recomending stuff + Valvekings price = A Lot of valveking owners.
