Right now I play a Peavey Classic 30, and use a MiM Strat with a Seymour Duncan JB pickup.

I just started playing with a Pop punk band, and I can't seem to keep up with my band mates (volume was maxed out). My bassist has a 300watt amp, and the drummer dominated me heh.

My budget is around $1200.

Is it possible for me to get a 2 channel half-stalk for Pop punk?

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

See if you can find a used 2-channel Mesa Rectifier and Mesa 4x12, that should be perfect for you.

Quite frankly, I'd suggest a marshall of some sort. DSL100, JCM900, or JCM800. I'd recommend the DSL100 since it would be cheap, better than the 900 and you could still get a cab.

For Pop-punk I'd be saying the complete opposite, 900 over DSL.

But yes TS as said JCM900 or a Mesa

Hey,

I posted this in a similar thread pretty recently, but I have a DSL100 which I use for pop punk and I really like it. It might not be as good as the JCM900 (I've never tried one), but in my opinion it does a really good job of pop punk.

Anyway, here's a couple of covers I did with it...I apologise for the drums, I'm no drummer

So yeah, there you go, hope it helps. And I'll give the same warning I always do with the DSL100...if you plan on using it to play metal I would recommend against it. Once you turn the gain up the bottom end is way too flabby, and a boost just made it fizzy, so if you play metal that's something to keep in mind....
