Best Tube Amp For The Money. PERIOD!
I haven't been playing with a band for a while, so I sold off my huge 100 watt all tube half stack and figured I would get something that was home friendly in size, but could still keep up with a band if it needed to. I tried out every 1x12 tube combo Sweetwater had for under $1000. This Valveking 212 was priced lower than many other 1x12s, like Marshall, Blackstar, and Orange. I kind of ignored it at first, but once I reallt tried it out I was blown away. The clean was crystal clear, but with that tube warmth and clarity. The drive could clean up to a light blues break up, then get cranked all the way to screaming metal. It is layed out in a straight forward, no nonsense package that is loud enough for a full band. But is still small enough to fit in my back seat! I love it. You will not find a better sounding, more versatile, tube combo for anywhere near this price.
