Any mid gain modern voiced amp should get you close. I guess humbuckers would be better in this case but, the sound isn't too complicated. Any general distortion and your set I suppose.

What amp and guitar are you currently using?

currently i've had an acoustic for over a year, so i'm ready to move on to some electric stuff
#10
Ok so if you only have an acoustic. I would look into the guitar and amp before the pedals as those will be the key factors in your sound. Ideally you shouldn't need pedals but they can help.

Do you have a budget in mind? There are a lot of decent well priced amps available to you.

the new xaviers telecaster from guitarfetish are really good for their price
they are 182.

so:

tele: 200
badmonkey: 50
used peavey classic 30 : 300

550

I dont think youll need a footswitch, pop-punk songs are generally dirty, so if you want to lighten up, use the volume knob.

This is pretty funny.. haha

Seriously, get a nice tube amp. You wont be needing a distortion pedal then. So get a nice OD. Then think of what modulation effects that you want next.

lol sweet thats probably the route i will go... its weird that i would spend about 700 dollars on the word of a complete stranger.
#18
I would pass on the Valveking.

Get either a Traynor YCV40WR or a Traynor YCV50 Blue. much better amps. Look used, and you'll find them bother under 500.

A lot of pop punk bands these days are running through a Marshall JCM800 or JCM900. Using a YCV50 Blue will let you get that British/Marshall tone fairly easily.
#19
i find a lot of punk bands these days seem to be using telecasters for some reason. and ive seen a bunch of dual recs too. though id say the more classic punk sound is more marshally to me. but with $1000, id spend at least half on the amp, maybe more. a good amp will sound a lot better with a decent guitar then a good guitar with a not so good amp.
#21
Use eBay, don't get a valveking.

I'd get a epi les paul custom maybe? $500 on eBay.

I don't want to suggest something I've never tried but a Classic 30 with a really nice OD? Maxon, Ibanez, etc.

Could also go for a Tiny Terror with an avatar 1x12 if you had enough too.. That would be a absolutely amazing rig.

And yeah, almost every pop punk/rock band uses a Mesa Rectifier.

^Not necessarily. Maybe a few years ago, but not nao. Rockerverbs are getting popular, as are Rocker 30's. Orange in general is getting popular. They're branching out from just Mesa, and if nothing else, at least not limiting themselves to the Dual Rec. I've seen the Lonestar onstage, I've seen a Bad Cat onstage. I've seen a lot of JCM800's and JCM900's on stage. JCM2000's, occasionally.
#24
Pop-punk guys don't use pedals, they use amp distortion. The most you would need is a good OD and MAYBE a delay. Invest in an amp like a Mesa Rectifier (they are all the rage these days) or a Marshall DSL, and that would be all you need.

The amp is basically the most important thing.

It depends on what kind of pop punk sound you want, a lot of guys use Marshalls, and a lot use like Mesa's like the dude earlier said.
