General Your general opinion of this product. I've only had it for a month and still playing with it to see how to shape things out to my style. Still working on that. To be honest...it really looks good sittin in my studio and once I figure out how all the stuff works...IE: effects loop and foot switch etc., I'll have a better idea of what I'm working with.....I'm in the honeymoon stage. Be sure to know if things go south with this amp I'll be sure to right a review on it. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Looks good and seems solid. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? n/a Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? n/a Action How was the action out of the box? fired right up. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? like I said, very nice. Reliability How has it stood up over time? One month and counting....to early to tell.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This thing is a TANK! Solid! Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've owned it for a little less than a year. This is my third Peavey amp. The guys at Peavey know how to make quality U.S. products. Peavey amps can handle the wear & tear. General Your general opinion of this product. I've been playing for over 20 years and have played many Tube amps in my lifetime. You can't beat the quality & price with the Valveking. I was very happy with this purchase. I will purchase another one in the near future for a back up. The clean sounds great with my Electric/Acoustic guitars. The distortion is crunchy, perfect for rock! This head is extremely loud and can handle any small to medium size gig. I never mic my set up. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Finish How did the stain or paint job look? It looked great out of the box. Action How was the action out of the box? Had to tweak it to my specs, took me about 10 minutes to get the sound I was looking for.
Fantastic head on a budget

Reliability How has it stood up over time? No problems in the three weeks I've had it. I'm counting on traditional Peavey reliability General Your general opinion of this product. Just upgraded from a Line 6 solid state to Peavey tube power. Super loud, looks great, sounds great Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? n/a Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Tone was a little muddy until I got it dialed in. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks great...quality finish...the wings on the front remind me of VH Action How was the action out of the box? n/a (I think)

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It appears to be very well made for the price. Sound is terrific (minus the feedback at higher volumes with high gain). Love this thing. Haven't really had the chance to test over an extended period of time. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've only had mine for a month or so, but it has so far withstood daily playing. General Your general opinion of this product. This head has some serious power for the cost. If you are looking for a good entry level all-tube head, this thing is sweet. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? NA Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It's not a mesa or marshall, but it has super tone for the price. I recommend a good cab to match with this. I've played out of a bugera cab, a cheap marshall cab, and a marshall 1960a and have found the tone varies greatly. I'd recommend making a 1960a cab your next purchase. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The tolex is very utilitarian, but sturdy. The overall construction seems very rugged. If you like plain black, you'll love the look. Action How was the action out of the box? Easy to get set up. "Action" doesn't really apply. I recommend reading the manual a couple times. It's short and gives you a good idea about some of the extra boosts and controls.
