"Fanfreakintastic Amp. for the money."
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
I have a Peavey Rage 158 trans tube which was ok for a while as I am not a great player, yet, I have played on Fenders, Marshalls, and others, this Amp kicks butt, I think it sounds better than the Marshall (solid state) and just as sweet as the Fender Hot Rod. Very flexible sound abilities. I have decided to pump it through my Boss OS2 effects though.
Great features, as I said, very flexible sound capabilities. I do wish it came with the footswitch though. The jack for the add on speaker cabinet is very nice, as well as the Class A, A/B control on the back.
Ease of Use:
Plug in and tweek to your liking and blow the fur off your dog.
This is my third Peavey in my life, the first being a Backstage 30 back in the 70's, The Valve King looks like it is as well built as I could ask for. Course I don't think I'll be lugging it to any gigs, (I don't play that well, Yet)
Not had to Deal with them, I just got it this morning and it is in beautiful shape. Kudos to Peavey for good packaging.
At 429 here at Same Day, it was a few hundred less than the Fender Hod Rod and sports 10 more watts to boot. Awesome value, I couldn't have asked for a better amp for the price.
The Wow Factor:
Ok I'm not gonna date the thing, it's an amp, however if I was a Guitar I would constantly be trying to plug into it. I personally like the retro look with the winged Peavey logo.
I will probably be satisfied for quite a while. When I do get better I think this Amp will have all the power and sound quality I will need. I might add an extra speaker cabinet later.And a foot switch.
