Some friends of mine have an alternative band and they use marshalls.
Ive played on one they are great.

though remeber: no Marshall MGs or AVTs


for $500 you'd allready be getting into the tube amps: Traynor YCV, Peavey Classic, Peavey Valveking, Fender something something (can't remember, might have to go a bit used and might want to add a distortion/overdrive if you want some dirtier sounds), Laney LC series...

MGs SUCK and the AVTS are ok.

No, both MGs and AVT suck for respective reasons. MGs=Bees in a box. Thanks Danno. And AVTs=overpriced P.O.S

Methinks a Vox Valvetronix should cut it. Does pretty much anything you need it to do.

Fender.

Maybe a Hot Rod, but those are 600 I believe.

But any other Fender works. They have very good clean channels.

Just don't get anything digital for ska, it is stupid and nasty.

Fender or Vox
