i want a single channel straight up rock amp because i never use a clean tone and that makes channel switchers pointless. i am looking at a couple high gain single channel heads and i just want to know how they compare. they are the jcm900 slx, the vht deliverance, and the laney gh50l. i would say the soldano avenger and orange or50 but im not rich. anyway how do the slx, deliverance, and gh50l compare for a general mid rangey punk tone. i play everything from the stooges to rise against, pennywise and all points in between.

I probably like the OR50 for that grimy midrange which is perfect for punk. VHT/Fryette Deliverance would probably be my second choice if the price is right but honestly these are all good.
If you don't want to switch channels a XXX set on its crunch channel does a pretty good punk tone, you don't have to use the other two and would pay about $500 used

Marshall is the most overrated brand ever. I'm personally a big fan of Laney amps, great metal amps, but also very versatile.

Peavey Winsor. may need a boost for modern metal but is one channel with a fair amount of gain. not made anymore but can be had pretty cheap.

gh50L should do it

avenger might be a bit more modern-sounding (though is a better amp, if you know what i mean)

deliverance would probably do it too

i'm not that well up on punk though

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

The SL-X is a beast and so is the Laney GH50l, so really which ever you think looks best.

Interesting mix of amplifiers; to be sure. The Marshall JCM900SLX was designed to be more of a high gain amp than were previous Marshalls. Some people loved them; others did not. A lot of Punk players seemed very happy with it. The VHT is great, but some people find its distortion to be a bit "too technical;" or perhaps "too refined." It is definitely aimed at metalheads. For what you have described, I think that you could almost flip a coin between the Laney and the Marshall. Either should suit you very well.

I thought the deliverance was more aimed at more straight-ahead rock players? It didn't seem as metal as some of the other VHTs when I tried it, but at the same time it's ages since I did and I might think it's pretty heavy-sounding these days

if you want to go cheap, then +1 to this, it's supposedly Peavey's "copy" of a JCM800.
