The ultimate grab and go amp for today’s guitarist! The ValveKing II 20 is part of Peavey’s next generation ValveKing amps, providing incredible build quality, versatility, tone and features for working players. 20 watts of total power plus a variable power switch to take it down to 5-watts or 1-watts and a single 12-inch speaker gives this combo amp enough power to use in virtually any playing environment!
Peavey gives the ValveKing II 20 cutting-edge features for recording and performing musicians. For the recording musician, the ValveKing features a USB direct recording output, which pipes the mic'ed amp vibe directly into a computer.
