Okay, so basically, I need an amp for small/medium gigs..
When we play large (festival style) gigs, I can use amps from the other bands.
But I will need something for the other gigs.

But the thing is..
I, like a lot of UG, am not the richest of people .
So something cheaper than $400 would be nice..

Quick details:
-less than $400
-loud enough for medium sized gigs
-decent tone

Thanks!

if your looking more than 50 or 75 watts. The cheap marshal cabinet with a crate power block, especially if you have pedals you like to use for your sound. i have it and it just oozes power. ands sounds pretty darn good for a solid state

Uhh, we are an alternative punk style.
In the area of Mxpx, Blink 182 and the descendents.
Also with some ska influence.

But is the classic 30 loud enough?


will be loud enough to practice un-mic'd over drums, and will be loud enough for small gigs/parties/etc...for anything bigger you will be mic'd through the house PA anyway.

The classic 30 is very loud, will sound like 75 watts SS.

Peavey Valveking 112
B-52 AT-112

These are good and in your budget. However, the Valveking may need a new speaker, etc, to give you good tone.

i wud get the marshall mg...its a good amp and doesnt afraid of anything,.

Seriously though, the Flextone is a good option for cheaper.

Make sure to check ebay. Also You could get a line 6 preamp (pod) and some type of power amp. I guess you'd have to still buy the cab.

Edit: the other suggestions for a flextone are probably better.

The hand was in the air about to smack the damn taste right out of your mouth.

But then you said Flextone.

I stand corrected. The hand has returned to its' axe.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

I figured it out.

ZT Lunchbox + Lunchbox Cab.

You'll need a pedal for anything past low gain, but if you already have one you like this is the best option. Will bury a drummer and is super portable.

Check out Peavey Classic 50's too, around here they seem to run at or slightly below the price of Classic 30s, and there would be NO doubt about it's volume.

The 30 is definitely loud, but if you need pristine high volume cleans, it might not pull it 100%.

Both fantastic amps for the bucks though, and spot on what you're looking to spend (used).
