100W of pure ValveKing Class A and AB thunder.

The Peavey ValveKing half-stack guitar amplifier includes ValveKing 100 Head guitar amp and ValveKing 412 Cab.

At the heart of the all-tube Peavey ValveKing 100 Head is a patent-pending, Class A/B Texture control that allows variable selection and combination of Class A and Class AB power structures. This gives you the ability to coax a wide range of tones out of the ValveKing 100 Head. It features 12AX7 preamp and 6L6GC power amp tubes; 2 footswitchable channels with independent 3-band EQ and volume; footswitchable boost on the lead channel; global resonance, presence, and reverb controls; a buffered effects loop; and dual speaker jacks in parallel.

The perfect complement to the Peavey ValveKing 100 Head, the all-birch ValveKing Series 412 Cab features 4 - 12" ValveKing speakers, switchable mono/stereo operation, rear-mounted speakers, and 400W continuous power handling.

Comments about Peavey Valve King Half-Stack:

The Peavey Valveking. Wow. Well, I bought the Valveking a few months ago, and I love it more and more each day. When I got it I was not very impressed with it, but after I figured out how to get good settings with it I found that I could get a very good sound from it. The thing that made me fall in love with it was when I got a MXR EQ pedal. The sound that I can get when I have the EQ pedal in the loop is great for my sound. This amp is amazing for the price. I can get a great distortion sound with my guitar in the high gain input and my mids slightly scooped with the texture on B. I can get a nice warm buttery clean sound by plugging the guitar into the low gain input and putting the texture on A. My main complaint would be the fact that the texture control was on the back. The cab does have a lot of mid-range, so it was hard for to get the super mid-scooped metal tones until I got an EQ pedal. But without the pedal I got great tones for classic rock and some metal like Sabbath. Sometimes the tone can get a little sharp sounding, but a little adjustment can fix that. At the moment I have been playing alot of All That Remains sounding music, and I can get a great tone for that; although "Six" is the only ATR song that I've been brave enough to try. The reverb on the Valveking is not the best, but it gets the job done unless you want to do something like cover Radiohead's "In Rainbows" album or something. The clean channel does not sound great on the high gain input, but it can sound really good on the low-gain input. It's a really great deal for the money, but if you want to play something with ridiculous amounts of distortion you may have to look for a higher end amp. And this thing is LOUD! I've had some people say things like, "Oh, it's only 100 watts? So my 150 watt Spider III is like 1.5 times as powerful?" Remember, this is an all-tube amp. It has enough power to rock a small venue. As far as the reliability, the Valveking seems solid as a rock. I haven't been stupid enough to drop it out of my car or push it over or anything, but it doesn't seem like the kind of amp that will just give out on you. I can't comment on the footswitch because I don't have one, but if it's built like the rest of the amp, it should be great. If there was a 4.5 star rating, I probably would have given it that, but I decided to round up instead of down because I love the versatility of the amp. I even tried to play some Texas blues a couple of times, and it even worked for that. I doubt that it could be used to play jazz or anything like that, but I doubt that you're buying the Valveking to play Jazz. I may be in danger of being called a rambler, so I'll just close by saying that the Valveking can play a good variety of music styles, but it may need some help to reach some of them. Overall, this is great amp at a bargain price.
