I tried the Peavey Valveking at guitar center and thought it was amazing. Just sounded fantastic playing metal on it.
I am wondering if the 6505+ 112 combo might sound even better? My concern is that "Sheffield" speaker it has. I have no experience with that speaker. I have plenty of speaker cabs I could plug it into if I had to. Does this thing sound a lot like the 6505+ head?
Thanks for your thoughts,
well if you tried the search feature you'd find that the 6505 is one of the most raved about amps on this site.
That said, if you have cabs already, why not just get the head. Much more pleasant to haul a head and cab around than a combo. Also the heads are better made, sound very very similar, but the heads definitely sounds slightly better and are better built. Though it's kinda like comparing an abrams to a Leopard 2.
Regardless either the combo or the head will kick the shit out of the valve king. Especially for metal.
