Right now I have a Kustom 100DFX, an Ibanez S520, and I'm about to get a MIM Tele, a Tubescreamer and/or Blues Driver. I play pop punk, modern rock, etc., mostly punk and pop punk. I'm looking for a decent, gigable tube amp. My 18th birthday is soon, so price is not too much of a problem.

Influences:
Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blink-182, Green Day, The Matches, Van Halen, AFI, etc.

Any help is appreciated!

B-52 AT-100. They sound great, and they're so versatile its not even funny. You can get good tones for anything from blues to pop-punk to metalcore.

Only problem with it, is its noisy as all hell, so make sure you get a good noise gate.

A ValveKing 112 would be good. Altho, if you really wanna go all-out price-wise, a Marshall JCM/JVM/any other Marshall tube amp should do great.

I'd recommend one of three possible amps, first is a Traynor YCV 50 Blue, great combo and marshall-voiced coupled with a nice Fender-esque clean sound...

If you want more versatility check out the Traynor YCS 50H or 100H, both heads in 50 and 100 watts, respectively... both are insanely versatile and not too hard on the wallet.

If you want to go for an do-all, end-all amp, look at a Mesa Mark IV or Mesa Road King, incredible... almost had my hands on either but then lost my college scholarship so couldn't afford it any more...

Best suggestion so far in this thread.

Give us an actual number on what you want to spend, and we can get more specific.

You Don't Need 100W.

Maybe an Orange Rocker?
30w head or combo should be plenty

would this and the at-100 be decent, for both in home/dorm room practicing and band practice/gigging? I'm pretty sure that together, that's the amount of money I'd like to spend.

Also, I think that I'd prefer a combo. Can somebody link some good combo tube amps?
