I have 400 bucks right now and am saving up money.
I was wondering if the Peavey Classic 50 would be good for what i want, or should I save up and extra 2 bills or 3 for a fender twin or ac30.
I like to play punk like dead kennedys, stooges, clash and also like velvet underground and some old garage stuff, i also like music like pepper and RHCP
Wich one do you guys recomend, what are your toughts on these three amps, wich one is the most flexible.

i want amp that would be more or less close to a tone specifically in these videos with a few pedals maybe or by themeselves. im not sure if Classic 50 or the twin fit the bill but could some one verify, i dont have much experince with either amps.

especially in the first and fourth video i want an amp that will give me a tone like that more than anything.

the first and fourth video remind me of the twin. well more than anything the first did.. i didn't watch videos two and three.
i'm not sure if you could get that with the peavey as i have no experience with it.

i didnt watch the videos but from what you listed the vox would give you great crunch. have you ever considered a marshall jcm 900? cleans are great and its perfect for punk. plus its right at your price range.

he'll probably have to go used but i second that notion.

I listened to 1, 2, and 4 (as 3 was non linky'd) but they all sounded very British voiced to me so I would say:

1. Vox
2. Marshall
3. Fender
4. Peavey

i know...somewhat skewed as i think a Fender and/or a Peavey Classic 30 could get you there but a Vox might be quicker.

Umm. The Peavey has a british flair to it and I think it can get you pretty close to those tones. It can do pretty much anything between Fender and Vox with the right settings.

If you're in north America, take a look at some Traynor amps? the YCV50 is a great british voiced amp, you can get sparkly cleans if you want, or you can get some warmer ones if you wish. And the OD channel is great, and they should be about the same price as the peavey classic 50 used.

do you guys think the peavey could do #3.
I know it could probly do 1 and 4, but do you think for 3 ill need a overdrive.
Im just looking for an amp that could handle all three im just limited right now to 400-500 bucks.
If you havent seen the vids just check em out and tell me what you think.
