Hello,
I wonder what you would choose if you were given the choice.
Both are used but mint. The HT-20 does not come with a cab, just the head.

What would you consider the best value (let say you like them both for the sound even if different)
Pros and cons?

Thanks

Namaste Budda,
Thanks for your input.
Here are the points I consider so far:
- The VK112 has 2 channels and the dirty channel as (2 stages) dial personalities with the boost. MH as 2 channels, clean and gain.
- VK112 has separate eqs for both channels, not the MH.

I believe the VK might be more versatile with plenty of tones ranging from "Fender ish" clean to blusy dirty to hard rock relatively high gain.

Any other points to consider?

Well, the original question was more about the "perceived value" of the VK over HT. I should have told you that I own both of these amps at the moment I asked the question.

I love them both for diff reasons. The VK has new JJ tubes in It as well a brand new UK made Cestion G12 Vintage. It sounds really good. The HT is bone stock and it is a lovely amp. It is plugged on a Blackstar HTV412B.

I have been thinking about trading the VK (with the original Peavey speaker) plus some cash for the HT which seems pretty clean (like 9.5/10). Then, last week the guy I was suppose to trade with backed from the deal. Finally, this morning I added a MXR Micro-Chorus in the deal and VOILA! I should have it this thursday at home. Both HT will be plugged stereo.

I will now be on (a budget) quest to:
A) Sell my 4x12 and buy 2 used but decent 2x12 (prefered option), but they are hard to find)
B) Find another 4x12 (and lose the little space I had left in my music room...)

It is never easy? Is it. Oh Well! First world problem I know...
