SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
Sound: This amp is AWESOME, iv played probably between 10-20 shows with it and i love it. I have friends who play mesa, marshall, krank and all those "quality brand" amps that you pay out the ass for. And i honestly would pick the ValveKing over most of them. Even recording in the studio i brought it and the guy recording us was sooo suprised with the Valveking head. We used a ENGL head along with mine for rythm and lead, and pluged them into a mesa cab and the valveking basically sounded and performed just as good as the other head (wich cost about $1000 more). These amps sound amazing if you take a noise suppressor and run it through the effects loop, it cranks out such sick tone and these amps are LOUD, at gigs the sound guy usually tells me to turn it way down even when the volume is only at like 5. I highly recomend the Valvking half stack to any who doesnt wanna play out the ass for an amp that isnt much better than a valveking. Over all SICK AMP! Feature: Everything is awesome, and the texture knob on the back lets you mess with your tone so good so you can find your perfect tone. the only thing i think they could improve on it is that the effects loop is on the front of the head. Moving it to the back would be a lot better in my opinion. Ease of Use: easy to use, not a whole bunch of useless effects on it or anything so its pretty simple to figure it out and get the perfect tone your looking for Quality: Very good quality! Value: BEST TUBE HALF STACK ON THE MARKET FOR THE PRICE! PERIOD!! Manufacturer Support: they have a good warrenty and peavey is AWESOME about helping their customers out. Nothing has gone wrong with mine in the 2 years that iv had it so i havent had to deal with getting support for it. The Wow Factor: the head looks pretty sweet but the cab it comes with is nothing special really. could use some better looks

Sound: The head sounds great. The clean channel chimes like only a tube amp can. Dailing in warm full tones was easy with the "texture" and "damping" controls. The lead channel is what you would expect on a entry level tube amp. Turning the gain all the up brings out the tones of classic hard rock of not so long ago. The cab sounded good in the clean channel. In the lead channel the cab/speakers shows it's weakness. A speaker upgrade would add more to the sound quality. Feature: Not a lot of bells and whistles here. The "damping" control is a nice feature. A little light or two around the dails would help. Ease of Use: Nothing complicated here. You basic tube tones are easy to achieve. Sounded great whatever effect was added. Quality: For the price it what you would expect. The grill fabric does not seem to be very duriable. Value: This is a great amp for this price. Manufacturer Support: Have in the past with no problems. Overall: I'll use it till it dies. If lost or stolen, I would upgrade.

Sound: I borrowed this amp from a friend while mine was in the shop.. This amp sounded mediocre and got some bad feedback with the Valve King cab. I plugged it into a Hughes & Kettner cab and there was next to no feedback, so the cab is not good quality. Feature: No accessories with it, just the amp and cab. Presence control is a nice thing to have. Ease of Use: Had all the standard equalizations along with a few others.. Nothing special. Quality: Seems sturdy. I don't think it would fall apart any time soon. Value: Well, they say you get what you pay for.. That's about true. Paying that cheap for a tube amp, you're not going to get great quality. After buying a Hughes and Kettner Triamp, I would never consider purchasing this product. Manufacturer Support: Never dealt with support The Wow Factor: The looks are kind of bland.. Overall: Alright for the price, but I would never buy a tube amp for this cheap.
