I have a Valveking 112, and I don't care what people say about it, I love it. I run a Behringer EQ to it and it sounds great. Great, versatile amp for many genres.

I really don't know much about punk, but I'd thinkin that it could do it without much of a problem (Sorry if I'm ignorant, but punk is generally just mildly distorted chords with the singer being the main part of the music, right?). There may be something better for you in that price range though, so take what I said with a grain of salt.

Most people recomend to me the fender blues amp thing and peavey valve kings but whats a good decent amp to gig with for around 5-6 hundred dollars?

where do you live roughly ojwonderbread and Welcome to UG? I'm asking so I can check craigslist to give you some examples or stuff to look for. The Blues Jr can do rock and punk and so can the Valveking. What kind of punk are you talking about?

Go for a Peavey Classic 30. It will do punk just fine and can handel any gigging volume you may need. Its miles better then the valveking.

I really don't reccommend you get a blues jr. (I assume thats what your talking about?) Its a great lil' amp but its kinda a one trick pony.

Music like the dead kennedys Yuppie pricks bad brains Or pop punk emo kinda music It doesent really matter haha. Craigslist for my city (Syracuse) Has no good things to buy plus I dont trust buying stuff off people. And with the classic 30 it doesent look to be as loud or as good of a deal as the valveking.

Punctuation.

Use it.

Also: The beauty of CL is the fact that you can see the stuff before you buy, and pay cash for it. What's not to trust?

There won't be much difference between 30W and 50W in terms of volume, if I'm correct. I don't think there's even much difference between 50 and 100, and please correct me if I'm wrong. It's all headroom- how loud the amp can get with out the power tubes saturating. Tube amps have higher wattage so you can get loud without the power tubes saturating when you're playing metal, because metal is mostly preamp tubes at work. I don't know what kind of tone punk rock generally requires, so somebody else could probably fill you in on that.

If people suggested the Blues Junior, I'd say for your needs, it is not the right thing. I'm not into the whole punk thing, but from what I know, it's not going to do what you want it to do. It's a great amp, but only if you play blues and country stuff.
