Well I'm going to ask the experts out there. I'm going for the good ol' 70's twangy punk tone. Any suggestions? Nothing over $1500 bucks please.

my idea of punk is much different than yours im sure, but i would say SF fender amp with a proco rat or some other dist. pedal.

wouldnt the twangy feel also be asociated with your guitar aswell.

look into finding a good strat type guitar or tele aswell.

Tele + distortion pedal of your choice + Fender amp would do it nicely.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

$1500?

Fender Blues Deluxe + Boss BD-2/Digitech Screamin Blues + Tele/Mosrtie style guitar (what do you have right now?) = 70s punk.

If all you had to go on was the forum you'd think a Decimator could cure noise caused by dodgey stage lighting and restock the ocean's population of sperm whales

Not for twangy seventies punk. I'm thinking X/The Clash. They just turned the amps up really loud, mostly.

I'm not a fan of strats. Lars of Rancid has the twang and he uses an Epi Les Paul. I know that Marshalls were widely used back in the early punk days.

TS, you might want to sell one of your guitars and invest in a Telecaster.

Lol. I'll never sell my guitars. Money is really not a factor. I just don't want to spend an assload on an amp.

Then go for a Blues Deluxe with one of the OD pedals I recommended and you won't be far off at all. I've tried it, it does sound great, especially if you mix the distortion and OD on the Screamin Blues. A Boss OS-2 works as well, but it doesn't quite have that twangy character.

So should I stick with my current Randall and just try out a Strat instead? Couldn't hurt to try it I guess :P

Most punks back then, the ones who played underground gigs with no recording deal, played cheap guitars through cheap amps: we were skint and couldn't afford Marshalls and Vox's and ****. I had a Linear 40 watt SS POS that was really loud: didn't even have a distortion pedal! Just turned it up until the speaker started to cry.
