Good riddance, right? My spider III just isn't doing it for me.

I've been looking into the peavey valveking 112 and 212. the 212 is a bit of a stretch for my budget but if it is worth it i'll get it.

I play mostly metal/shred (well i WANT to shred eventually) and classic rock, along with the occasional clean. I want an amp that is loud enough to practice with my band/play small gigs AND sound good in my room. I played it in the shop at low-ish volume (like the max i would have it at during the day in my house) and i couldn't get anything past an acdc tone really, so i'll probably buy a dist. pedal too if i get it. Suggestions for that aswell?

btw, i know there is a valveking thread but i couldn't find anything specific to my situation so i went here.

Hmmm If metal is your thing, why not a Bugera 6260. Sure does it miles better than a Valveking. Thing is tight and has stupid high amounts of gain.

I have experience with both (I have a Bugera, and my brother has a Valveking)

Whatever you do, snag an Overdrive pedal of some form to run up front. I'd suggest a Boss SD-1 or a Digitech Bad Monkey. Turn the gain down low, output high and toss it in front of your already dirty amp and let the sexyness ensue

valveking is really not such a good choice if you primarily play metal

look into the bugera 6260 or the randall rg50tc
Guitar: Ibanez RGR321 EXBK

Amp: Bugera 6260 head + 4x12 cab

bugera if you treat it nice, dont forget about the b52AT combo, and look into a used Peavey XXX combo, they'll be perfect for what your looking for

cool, i'll look into the bugera, XXX, b52AT, and randall.

BTW Sorry to say that i'm not the strongest/most controlled roadie so when bringing it around its likely to take a slight beating.

Edit: just checked craigs list- theres a guy VERY close to my house willing to sell a valve king 112 for $235 usd with brand new tubes. Is this too good to be true?...

I checked out the suggested bugera (6260). It costs $500 and its an amp head.

sorry if i didn't make it clear but i want a combo.

VKs arent bad for metal, but not stuff like Death/Grind stuff. The only thing about mie is that my semi-hollow doesnt have hot enough pickups. But with my cheaper guitar, you can get a good amount of gain. But with a ZW overdrive/Bad Monkey/maybe a TS9 copy, it should get the gain you need, then some.

There is a Bugera 6260 Combo too.
