Powerful controls to sculpt your perfect tone

Craft your perfect tone with the 2-channel Peavey ValveKing II head tube amplifier. It starts off with a powerful 3-band EQ that lets you dial in the tones you need for any gig. The cool Vari-Class knob lets you tweak the power amp class characteristics between Class A and Class AB. This gives you tonal versatility to nail any tone from country to rock to metal. You can also tailor your low end with the ValveKing's damping control. A footswitchable gain boost switch lets you add a healthy dose of extra gain to your clean and lead channels. You can even switch your wattage output from a full 100 watts to 25 watts and even 5 watts for rehearsing and recording. No matter what type of gig you have, the Peavey ValveKing II head tube amp is ready to rock.

Flexible outputs for stage and studio

The Peavey ValveKing II head tube amp sports two direct outputs that are perfect for live and recording situations. Peavey's built-in MSDI (Microphone Simulated Direct Interface) sports a pro-level XLR output that sends a mic simulated output direct to the soundboard or recording rig. The MSDI eliminates the need for messy mic runs while delivering optimized tone. You also get a USB 2.0 direct output that takes the MSDI signal and sends it directly to your computer for easy recording. On top of all of that, Peavey included their new TSI tube-monitoring indicator into the ValveKing II head so you can see the health of your power tubes in real time.

Built-in USB interface for recording

The Peavey ValveKing II head tube amp also acts as its own computer audio interface with a built-in, studio-quality USB 2.0 output that sends you amps sound directly to your computer. The output from the USB jack comes from the MSDI output, so it will sound great! Just fire up your favorite recording software and start laying down tracks with the all-tube Peavey ValveKing II head.

My first real amp was a 2 x 12" Peavey Classic -- the old-school late-'70s original with the aluminum side panels on the grille. Ah, the good old days! I played that amp for years, followed by several other Peaveys, and they never let me down. But time marches on, and Peavey has kept up with the times with a steady stream of really cool amplifiers (including a new line of tweed-covered Classic amps launched in the early '90s). The latest from Peavey is the ValveKing II, a feature-laden amp that's perfect for stage or studio. The ValveKing II combo that I checked out uses three 12AX7 preamp tubes and two EL84 power tubes to deliver 20 watts, switchable down to 5 watts or even 1 watt for home use. (There also is a head version of this amp, a 50-/12-/2-watt combo, and a 100-/25-/5-watt head.) It has clean (with bright switch) and dirty (with switchable boost and high gain) channels, each with 3-band EQ, and a master reverb. A master Damping control blends presence and resonance shaping under one knob, while the Vari-Class control can continuously shift the power tubes from Class A operation to Class AB. That's a ton of tone-shaping control and a lot of versatility, from chiming British clean to rich American clean, crunchy UK chunk to singing U.S. sustain. The front panel also features tube monitoring LEDs, which keep you apprised as to the health of your EL84s. Around back, you've got a footswitchable effects loop and an MSDI (Mic Simulated Direct Interface) XLR jack for feeding the amp's output -- with mic and speaker emulation -- to a live sound console or a recorder. There's an accompanying switch for turning off the speaker for silent recording. There's also a USB output that can likewise deliver a mic-/speaker-emulated signal straight into your computer DAW. This really is one amp that can do it all for you, from clean to high gain, at bedroom volume or stage volume -- and who needs to mess with microphones? Recording and live sound are super easy with this amp. Check any of the ValveKing II amps out. They all deliver killer tube tones and more versatility and practical usefulness than just about any other amp on the market.
