i have boiled down down my search for a one channel amp for punk rock to the jcm 900 slx and the laney gh50l. i play everything from catchy punk like the ramones and green day to the hardest of hardcore like the exploited and sick of it all and all points in between. which amp will get me the better tone? my guitar is a fender strat with a seymour duncan distortion in the bridge with one volume knob and thats it, no. effects, od pedals, nothing.

Probably better resale on the Marshall but honestly, can't tell. They're about equal. I'd probably go Laney as it is more off the beaten path so you might get "your" sound instead of mimicking everything that's out there...but with that in mind I'd rather go Orange Rockerverb for punk rock, especially if you're the sole guitarist in the band. It just has that dense midrange grind that fills up really nice.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I guess spambots are now capable of reading minds.

I'm partial to the Laney. Both are wicked amps for what you want to do though. I feel like it's preference at this point. Try and play both or grab the one you can get cheaper. That's probably what I would do.
#7
My obligatory vote for the SL-X. Was the meanest and gnarliest gain channel I ever owned.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.
#8
I have the 2 channel version of the Laney and love it but for punk I say the SLX.
Gibson RD Silverburst w/ Lace Dissonant Aggressors (SOLD)
Electra Omega Prime Ceruse
Fender Franken-Jag Bass

Amps and the like:
Laney VH100R
Seismic Luke 2x12
Dunlop 105Q Wah
Gojira FX 808
Line 6 M9

The SL-X is a beast, but for punk rock I'd say they're pretty close.
Gear:

Squier Strat
Epiphone Explorer
Agile AL-3100

No AMP

i am going to go with SL/X.

partially because they will likely hold their value better
