New Amp for Pop-Punk

adasdasd
asdasd

Hey everybody! I'm new here, and I created this account to ask you guys some advice. I need to buy a new amp, a bigger one. Currently I'm using a Line-6 Spider III with 30 watts. I need a new one to play in small/medium sized venues.
Thank you all <3

I'd like to spend around 250 Euro.
I play Pop-Punk and Post-Hardcore.
I wouldn't mind to buy an used amp.
I want it to play gigs in smal/medium sized venues.
I have an Epiphone Les Paul Standard EB, a Boss DS-2 and a Line 6 Spider III with 30 Watts

Vyper Tube if you can find one in budget, otherwise the biggest Vyper you can afford.

Do you think that amp is "loud" enough to play in those venues? And it has a good clean sound so I can use my Boss DS-2? Thank you

Plenty loud. Lots of tonal range as well.

Look at the Jet City 20 watt combo, it will definitely fill a small venue, and if its not enough to fill a medium sied one you can mic it. Most venues have a PA system.

The Vyper Tubes have a 6505 power amp so they are plenty loud enough whether it's 60W or 120W. At the end of the day you only have to keep up with the drummer. If you need to be louder than that then the drums are being miked up and so will you.
The Jet City will suffice as well. A Peavey Valve King would work too but they really need better tubes and speakers to sound their best.

This^^

I play in a pop/punk/rock band, and my Jet City JCA50H holds up no problem.

If you go to my bands fb page (in sig) and listen to the song "two sides" that was recorded with all Jet City, more specifically a 20H and 50H blended together.

A JCM 2000 or Peavey XXX/Ultra could be a good fit. It would take some patience to find one in budget though.
