Okay, since my last thread, I got convinced, so I wont get a half stack anymore. I'll just get a 2x12 combo like everyone said. But I'm still confused about what I'm going to get. I'm on a 400-550 dollar budget. I want an amp with a pretty good distortion for stuff like poppunk, hardcore, screamo etc. idk, anything from poppunk like all time low to stuff like alesana or scary kids scaring kids.

so which amp would you recommend, I'm thinking about getting these, but I don't know which one

1) used 5150 combo
2) B-52 AT combo
3) Bugera 333XL combo
4) ValveKing combo

...in that order. A little more than your budget, but the tone is in a different league.

I would go with a used 5150 or 6505.

Interesting. It turns out that there are people on the forum who play an upright bass. I'll make a note of that.

*makes note*

*puts note on wall*

*stares at note for a minute*

*sits back down and resumes doing what I was doing*

yeah man, if you are looking for a punk style amp dude, go tube all the way.

the bugera 6260/6262 and the 333 are great amps for that. don't know to much about the 333XL except that it has a Noise gate thats not that great and a XL feature for boost and comes with EL34 tubes

i play in a touring. signed punk band and i have the 6262 -2x12 combo along with my 5150 II and mesa dual rect. i run my 6262 as a backup for my 5150 II. and i run it through a 2x12 mesa cab and it gets the punk tone down pact.

i heard the B52 At100 amps are good to

and a used 5150 as well
