    how about giving us more info so we know what you want?

    is it a big band (do you play small gigs or large ones?)?
    what kind of amp are you looking for (combo, stack?)?
    do you have any brand preference?
    do you have any idea what your looking for?

    Well we just started so we play small gigs.
    A stack is big so i decided to buy a combo.
    I don't have a preference.
    euhm, this is a hard question . okay i googled for some amps and i thought about something like this: Randall G2 Series RG200G2 200w Combo.
    But i don't know if it's any good. If i have some advise i can test amps and check their sound.

    If you can afford the Randall, get it. It's the best amp you'll get for that price. It's solid-state, no tubes. But it sounds like a tube amp.

    I have the Randall RH100 full-stack (two cabinets + 100watt top). the sound is fucking great for such a "low" price.

    Oh yeah, if you're looking at Marshall (just because it's MARSHALL). skip the MG and Valvestate series. They both sound like crap against that Randall.

    Default Marshall

    Yupp, Marshall MGs sound like crap.But I have a Valvestate VS100, and the best marshalls don't sound much better than it, I've tested a few .But if you want a really cool sound, buy a Mesa recto, but first win the lottery, so you can buy one for me as well .I've tried a randall combo too...well...uhm ...I didn't really like it...it may be good for metal, but not for punk rock.

    If you're wanting a nice sized gigging amp with a small budget, get the peavey bandit 112. You'll get an excellent sound from it. Although it is a common amp.

    it's great for punkrock, but you gotta use the green-distortion, not the red. Also, put a lot of middle in the equalisation. It can sound like shit, depents on you configure it.
