Long live the new King

In addition to all the boutique qualities and hot-rodded tones that guitarists have come to expect from the ValveKing series, the new generation line incorporates brand new cutting-edge features for recording and performing musicians. For the recording musician, the ValveKing features a USB-direct recording output, which pipes the miked amp vibe directly into a computer. On the rear panel, the built-in Peavey MSDI (Microphone Simulated Direct Interface) XLR direct interface eliminates the need for miking by allowing users to send the amp's signal directly to a recording device or mixing console.

With versatile tone for rock, jazz, or metal, the new generation ValveKings have the capabilities to create almost any sound imaginable. ValveKing’s proprietary Vari-ClassTM knob enables guitarists to adjust the ValveKing's “class” characteristics, allowing for complete power amp type versatility. True to its name, ValveKing even includes the new TSITM tube-monitoring indicator that keeps you apprised of the health of your tubes.

ValveKing offers other high-end features, including variable power control, so you can tailor your output to your performance situation without compromising tone. With triple 12AX7s, two independent foot-switchable channels each with their own EQ, and the Vari-Class variable Class A/AB simulation control, the next generation ValveKing delivers massive amounts of completely customizable all-tube power.

  • Power: 20W (switchable to 5W and 1W)
  • Two independent footswitchable channels
  • Separate EQ for each channel
  • Footswitchable gain/volume boost on lead channel
  • Reverb with level control
  • Buffered effects loop
  • Damping control—controls Presence and Resonance at the same time
  • Vari-Class variable Class A simulation control
  • Patented Microphone Simulated Direct Interface (MSDI) output with ground lift and speaker mute switch
  • Two powered outputs with impedance switch for using an external cabinet
  • TSITM tube monitoring with LED pass/fail indicator lights
  • Two footswitch inputs—one controls channel & boost; one controls reverb & effects loop.
  • Tubes: Two EL84 and three 12AX7 tubes
  • USB direct recording output

Comments about Peavey ValveKing II 20 20W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

This amp was ok at home for minor use but i tried using this amp at two different places outside my home. One was the place we practiced and the other was an outside venue. The amp was a total let down at those places. The other guitar player had a small solid state 15w amp and it totally blew this amp out of the water. I had to crank this amp to full volume to just get this thing to produce anything that might resemble a tone. I ended up having to borrow another bands amp to use for the show. When i got back from the show i went straight to the music store and traded it in for a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III. My days with Peavey amps are over. Sorry if this review is a bit harsh but i just get fed up with equipment that doesn't work. And yes i've had plenty experience with that, i've been playing for almost 30 years.

    Comments about Peavey ValveKing II 20 20W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I wanted to try a peavey tube amp, and this amp was pretty good. Loved the watt selection and the other features. Peavey amps rarely break, and I wanted an affordable reliable tube amp.

    The only thing i would critisize on this amp was the construction was to light duty for the price. The back is wide open and the plywood was rather thin. I know weight is always an issue, but the back should at least have a screen or a cross board. also hard to use on an amp stand with wide open back.

    The sound was good, but after cranking the 20 watt version up with the band, I found the distortion sound was a little harsher than the marshall i use. I ended up swaping this amp for a marshall 112 as I do preferr the marshall sound. We all have different ears, and the sound was still good, but I am a marshall guy. Overall, this amp is still a good value for the cost.
