meybe you could recommend something else??

i would like to get a sound like blink 182, simple plan and sometimes something heavier like sum 41...
#3

and i live in europe so amps here cost different.

Marshall or Orange would be great, but do you have the budget for it? Where will you be playing, gigs, bedroom, what?

Edit: oh, okay. Get an Orange. You won't regret it. Even if you move on to other genres, it'll still rock them nicely. I say get a head and a 212 cab. Just because.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

Delonge used Mesa Triple Rec's and JCM 900's live.

A JCM 900 4100 or it's clone, the Bugera 1990 would be a good way to go.
GAS LIST

Z.Vex SHO
AnalogMan Stereo Chorus
Barber Tone Press
Way Huge Supa Puss

i want an amp that could be enough loud for gigs!

Yes, he used a mesa boogie triple rectifier and now uses vox ac30!

Is there a copy of mesa boogie rectifier?

Which head do you recommend.
I guess the dual terror and rocker 30 are in my budget!
Which is better?
I dont want a tiny terror because it has 1 channel, i need a clean sound and a distortion sound.

Definitely the Rocker 30. Get the Orange 212 if you can afford it, I know they're much cheaper over there.

I know, but you shouldn't worry two much about that at that point. A rectifier doesn't make a huge difference in the sound, at least not as much as the preamp and poweramp. Just go for the rocker 30 really you'll like

alright, thanks for the info!

everythings great with orange but i found out that rocker 30 doesnt have an fx loop and AD30TC too. i really need effects loop to put my pedals in there.

oh I see, can you afford the rockerverb? It as an FX loop, verb', and has 2x12 but it's more expensive than the rocker 30, but if youca afford it go for that one.
If not, maybe an AC30?
It will give you way better cleans than an Orange, but you'll have to get a good distortion pedal

no, i cant afford the rockerverb and new vox ac30 handwired is way too expensive.

maybe i could get a marshall dsl 50. is it good for stuff like blink 182?(i know tom delonge didnt use marshall for overdrive but can i get close with marshall??) or is there a better amp that can do that stuff??

well, thats a custom classic (cc2), the original vox ac30 handwired costs 1999$, but i found one for 1799$ and its still too expensive for me.

so i dont know, maybe the custom classic sounds the same as h2.

Why do you absolutely want a handwired one? The custom classic sounds great. Maybe it doesn't sound exactly the same, but it's still a GREAT amp.
