All hail 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.

  • Most All-Around Amp

    As reviewed by Kiefer on 10/27/2014

    I found one of these used for a steal. With this thing you have total control of your sound. The class A-A/B variables open up a wide range of different clean and dirty sounds. From glass to thrash you can do everything you could on an amp three times it's price and size. The most all-around, picture-perfect amp for recording.

  • Great Value!

    As reviewed by DUWAYNE on 12/19/2014

    I've played a ValveKing 100 for 6 years and enjoyed great tone, but paid for it every time I had to move it. With all performances either miked or direct connected from my pedal, a 2x12 combo is way too much. So when the new VK II 50 was introduced, I wanted it immediately. Almost the same control over tone, a direct connection for sound reinforcement and recording, and plenty of stage sound even while using only 12 watts. And it weighs 30 pounds less! I even use my pedal less and go direct into the amp with my LP Signature. A super amp for every situation.

  • Great amp for the price

    As reviewed by Hayden on 8/8/2014

    Honestly, I went in looking for a 6505+ 1x12 for recording and solo usage. And I am glad I didn't, the cleans are still muddied up with distortion not giving a clear picture through. So I went and looked at this Valveking II, hearing good things about the originals before. This is a great amp for the price, doing everything you need while still being relatively portable. Great for recording or small gigs, even medium sized because it does put out some power to it. The only problem I have seen is that the distortion that comes with the amp is not that great, but being half and half you really are sacrificing one or the other. It records well, and the tubes are pretty durable. It just doesn't get heavy enough for metal at times, but really, teaching through equipment to broaden your horizons isn't such a bad thing, eh?
