A 100W tube is enough to play gigs for like...Oh I dunno, a benefit concert for all of Ethiopia.

Tone wise, I have no idea. The Valveking is supposed to be a great mid-gain amp for beginners, but your best bet is to go play one.
Washburn HM Idol w/ SD JB in bridge > Ibanez Weeping Demon > Korg Pitchblack > Digitech Bad Monkey > Boss NS-2 > Boss DD-6 > Egnater Renegade > Splawn 2x12 w/ Weber Sig12Bs

It's plenty loud for gigs. 30 watts is plenty loud for gigs. As for, can it do Blink 182? Yes it can. Can it do it well? Probably not as well as other amps.

I mean, if I can get a Lamb of God tone out of the thing, you could find a Blink 182 tone no problem.

I don't know. Go out to Guitar Center and muck around there for a bit. You'll find something! I reckon the Windsor could do it. The Laney VC 30 could probably do it proficiently.

I'm pretty sure he's using Diezel amps now.

Seen some pic/vids where i looks like he is using roadkings.

I think in the olden days he used dual/trip rectos.


well roadkings and rectos are voiced similar on the dirty channel wise. just the king has a ton of more versatility wise.
