Product Description

The Peavey ValveKing 100 head features a patent-pending, variable Class A-A/B control called Texture, which allows sweepable selection between Class A and Class A/B power structures, as well as any combination of the two. With this feature, guitarists can coax virtually any tone from the ValveKing 100. The amp's preamp and power sections use 12AX7 and 6L6GC tubes, respectively.

Additional standard features on the Peavey ValveKing 100 head include two footswitchable channels with independent, three-band EQ and volume, plus a footswitchable gain/volume boost on the lead channel to provide extra volume for solos. The ValveKing 100 head also features global resonance, presence and reverb controls, a buffered effects loop and dual speaker jacks in parallel (head and 212 only).

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (59 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "ValveKing, a budget friendly tribute to the 5150... but not quite. Good for the money but although the power section is solid, i"
Sound: This is the entry level "metal" head from Peavey. In that sense it is remarkably versatile. I don't give it a 10, because inevitably, in looks and design, it feels like a 5150, and although the power section delivers, the preamp section does not... not like a 5150. BUT and it's a big but, you can push that preamp power with a nice overdrive as I do with a Maxon OD808 and problem solved. This only applies if you are into that 5150, very high gain sound, otherwise for Metal, Rock this head delivers beautifully. For the money, this head is a HIT. Just a bid short on the preamp department. Feature: Again, for the price this amp truly surprises. The power is more than enough for a medium venue and at 5, it is louder than most amps in it's category at 10. It has variable a/b class control for a very customizable tone. It has 2 channels and a damn good clean channel at that. THAT is a high point, the clean is truly great, specially for those of us used to a 5150 that really cant get a nice clean going, this head is versatile in that sense. You have several gain buttons and switches that further "tweek" your gain, body and overall EQ. Ease of Use: Very straightforward, very easy to dial in a sound quite quickly. Quality: It's Peavey, it's durable, and it's very very well built. Not flimsy at all. Value: Great amp for it's price. Manufacturer Support: Never had a Peavey breakdown on me, had 5150, 5150 II, 6505 and none of them have broken down on me. Don't expect this one to be any different as it's construction feels very very 5150ish. Overall: I must say its' great for the price, alhtough I think it would make me truly happy if it were jut slightly more inexpensive. In any case, I MIGHT eventully chase down a Blackstar HT100 or a Jet City HDM100 just to try other interesting tones, but I am a Peavey man, I might only switch from the ValveKing if I stick with Peavey for a 5150 in good shape or a 6505 for a stronger gain and power in it's preamp section. But I am still reasonably satisfied with this head for now.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Absolutely the very best for only $500."
Sound: I have a Mesa Boogie Mark IV. This is every bit as good and much simpler to use. I will probably not use any effects except for delay because this thing is a Monster!! It howls and growls but is quiet as a mouse when not playing. Feature: For $500, what could you possibly want that this amp doesn't have? Ease of Use: Simple operation, took me 5 minutes to unpack, plug in, set the volume and tone and then, it blew me away!! Quality: This is my first Peavey product. All I keep reading now is how solid and reliable their equipment is. This amp looks incredibly well built and also looks cool too. Value: $500 and it sounds every bit as good and maybe better than my Mesa Boogie? You figure it out. Manufacturer Support: I'm rating a 10 because although I just got it, I had to wait 6 weeks and in the interim, the Peavey sales rep called me to apologize for the wait. He said they have a huge hit on their hands and can't keep it in stock. The Wow Factor: Awesome looking Head. Very cool Peavey logo. Overall: I will wear this amp out and go buy another one. But, I doubt that will happen for many, many years. I am sold on Peavey now and my next amp will be their Delta Blues model.
