General What is your overall opinion of this product? Bought the 212 combo version. It was ok for about 6 months. then it stated burning tubes. After retubing the amp twice, it was placed in a PEAVEY warranty repair shop and the service techs are stumped. They can not figure this peice of S**t out. There are internal problems with tube sockets. It has now become an expensive extension cab for my other amp.
Not what its cracked up to be.

Your general opinion of this product. Very disappointed in this amp. Bought it eleven almost twelve months ago and have had to put it in the shop twice already. The first time was four months ago Back in March. Turned it on one evening and got....nothing. Took it into a repair shop and the guy calls me and tells me that one of the tubes went bad and because the way Peavey wires this amp head he suggested that all the 6L6 tubes be changed. Something about being wire in parallel or series or what ever. I'm not educated on electronics so really I've got no choice but to let him change them out. Peavey would'nt cover it so it cost me $175.00. Got it back and I gently Broke in the new tubes. It played great until last night when I was playing and I started noticing that I had a crackling sound coming out of the speakers. I thought great....a blown speaker but I've never had the amp over 6 on the volumes. Keep in mind now...I'm 62 years old so I'm not into heavy metal and stuff like that, more like the Beatles and music
God himself just upgraded his backline with Peavey ValveKing II Halfstack!

Your general opinion of this product. Interesting thing about guitar amps: every marshall Ive owned Ive sold, and Ive had a few fail at gigs, Ive had a new fender fail at a gig, Ive had a blackstar DOA on delivery, Ive had an Egnater fail at a gig, Ive had kustom, and sold it, Ive had line6 which is one of the worst, sold it too! Ive had a carvin, sold it! Ive had crate, sold it! Ive had Bugera, sold it! Ive used Rivera: unimpressed, Ive used PRS sold it! Ive... used Mesa Boogie, unimpressed! Ive had vox, sold it! Believe it or not, I have had several Peaveys and none of them ever failed, or sucked! Interesting as Peavey has many naysayers and many supporters. Considered a working mans amp, Peavey has never me failed at a gig. just sayin! Now im breaking in a ValveKing II: very cool! The ValveKing II is the best amp period in its class. Premier build, design, quality, sound have all been placed in your hands, in my estimation there is no better amp. Let you ears decide, and of course the genre your playing in too!
Best bang for your buck!!
