Its been said once or twice already, but save your money and go for valve. an AC15 will make you much happier than another SS amp, and it will get just as loud as a 100W SS combo. I got myself an AC30 last week with an attenuation switch to switch it down to 15W. I play in a loud band and it is PLENTY loud, and still good for home practice.

+1 with Volcz and Guy Tabache on the ac15. Theres plety of gain for blink and green day. But if you want more just stick ads-1 or something in front. They take pedals great. Plus the voxs are whats going to cater to your chimey bright indie band tones. That british rock sound is what they will give you.

New amps are for people with lots and lots of cash. If you aren't filthy rich, used is the only way to go. There are any number of suitable amps out there but if you insist on buying new you're shit outa luck.

You don't need a 100 watt amp. I went to a huge outdoor concert and all the line ups were staying at the 30 watt range of things. Only the harder rock acts were using big stuff like Splawns and Orange Rockerverbs. The tones you're asking for what be best found in some bright British style amp between 15-30 watts. You can always add a distortion pedal for the harder punk. Also...none of the Peavey stuff suggested is "metal" by a long shot...unless you have the right guitar, pickups, pedals, string gauge, etc....calm down.

^ I thought that was funny too. Apparently the ValveKing and the Classic are metal amps. Who knew.

A Recto isn't too metal for Bad Religion, NoFX or Pennywise but a Peavey Classic is too metal for punk. There's a disconnect in there somewhere.

Ease up a bit guys he's obviously new

TS any of the amps that have been suggested here will work well. Check them out on YouTube and play them if you can you'll see they can do what you want easily. Limiting yourself to buying new is a rookie mistake. When I bought my first tube amp it HAD to be new as I felt for some crazy reason that the more I paid the better, like some kind of badge of pride or for bragging rights. Now I look back on it the me now would be way more impressed if i'd picked it up used for a steal

If I would have bought used all along, I could have had an ESP Horizon by now...


And FWIW TS, since I realize I haven't offered any actual advice, I think the ValveKing would be a good choice for you considering your budget. You might be able to get the 112 combo new, not sure how much they go for over there.
