So my lead guitarist REALLY needs a loud enough amp since we're starting to gig now. I play through a Valve King 100 stack, and we've sorta been sharing it, but that's not really working too well (obviously).

His budget is roughly $500, and he's to the point where he's willing to buy a Marshall MG Half Stack, but I was hoping there was a loud enough 2 channel tube amp in that price range that could play pop punk.
