So I was wondering if you guys could suggest a good amp for me to play pop-punk. I'm looking for a blink-182/Green Day/Sum 41, etc sound.

I currently have a Line 6 Spider III 15w (unfortunatley)

And I play a Mexican HSS Strat (Gonna put a Duncan JB SH-4 in it soon)

I have a boss OS-2 (Overdrive/Distortion), so that may help, but I'm hoping to find an amp with good cleans and overdrive and a channel switching pedal

I want a good enough tube amp that will let me be heard over the drummer during band practice, and I'm not gigging yet or anything.

I could probably spend like $500-$600 tops.

Thanks =)
Gear:
*Mexican Strat with JB pickup
*Focus by Krame with Invader pickup
*Peavey ValveKing 100 half stack

Bugera maybe? Used 5150 would probably be too dark...I would pick a Bugera of some sort to give you best performance for the price. A lot of pop punk bands still have heavy distorted tones so you will definitely need some gain.

Maybe a Blackheart Handsome Devil.

Look for a used Marshall as well. Most pop-punk bands use Marshalls

Your instant connection of his musical preference to his manliness obviously proves how much of a badass you are. If only more of us could be half the man you are.

in that price range, the first few amps that come to mind are:
peavey classic 30
peavey windsor
traynor ycv50
epiphone so-cal

i think those are all in that range anyway, im not always current with prices. the c30 is nice cause its got a usable clean and dirty channel, and both sound pretty good. voiced pretty well for pop-punk IMO (i have one and i play some pp). the windsor is more going to be for that straight up marshally crunch sound, and is supposed to be more of a one trick pony. havent played one myself, but its one channel and the cleans arent supposed to be that great. one of those things you just want to turn up, then roll back the volume knob on your guitar to get some pseudo cleans.

the traynor, well i havent really tried one either. supposed to be marshall voiced and a lot of people rave about them. marshall sound works well for punk, so its worth a look. the epi really intrigued me at one point. supposed to be dark voiced, and when i listened to clips i was thinking about getting it for a pop-punk style. the band i was looking to form for that style kinda fell apart before it got started, so i never really demoed the amp as i didnt need it anymore.

The Classic 30/50 is an amazing pop-punk amp.
