Demo of my amp: Peavey Valveking 112

I have been wanting to do some gear demos for since I started this blog. In the spirit of the NAMM show(the annual convention where all the music instrument manufacturers showcase their new products)which just ended a few weeks ago, I thought it would be a good time to do my first video and gear demo with the help of Dmitry, the guitar player from my other band of Beauty and Madness. Btw, the dog that sneaks into the video is also named Nate or Nathan.Enjoy

Some tips for using this amp:

I recommend buying the footswitch* for this amp,it's just easier to use and change from clean to heavy sounds while playing

Turn the amp on (NOT on standby) about a half hour before you are going to use it so the tubes warmed up and you get the best sound from the amp

Run the all effects(including pedals)thru the effects loop for a smoother sound, with the exception of an Overdrive
