Re: Peavey Valve King 112
That second thread certainly does look substantial.
I've played a 112 for about 3 years now and have nothing but good things to say about it. I got it used for $280. Retubed it last year and it sounds better now, but not that it sounded bad before that.
Over time it's lost quite a bit of it's initial harshness. Mine sounds much warmer and smoother than any new ones I try at GC.
I agree that if you're into Metal, you need to look elsewhere or use a pedal. Otherwise, this amp can do a lot of good things. A great value for the money. NOT the Holy Grail. But a very solid work horse for the money.
