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.

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.
