The new Peavey Valveking mini tube head is a 20 watt tube amp powered by 2 EL84’s colored by 3 12AX7 preamp tubes. Weighing in at 14 lbs it boasts a huge power to weight ratio. It’s a 2 channel amp with clean and gain channels; the gain channel features a gain boost for an even crazier amount of drive. The new Peavey mini heads also feature reverb for lush clean tone coloration. Twenty watts tube too much you say? No problem the Valveking mini goes for 20 watts tube AB, to 5 watts or even lower to 1 watt class class A tube power. Too loud to rock out at midnight? I think not! For years tube amps have the necessity of being plugged into speaker cabs to draw power. This prevents damage that unchecked electrical current can do to the amplifier. Now Peavey allows you take in all that tubey toned goodness and playability using headphones to crank loud without disturbing anyone else around you. The best part you don’t even need to have it plugged into a cabinet for an ohm load. It also features a dedicated effects loop. Love the tone you’re getting? Great! Just USB out of the Valveking mini into your computer with recording software and you can lay down guitar tracks straight out of your amp! No Interface or micing necessary. Check it out today!
