Best amp for punk rock?

    Ok last summer I recorded for my band's ep (we're playing fast melodic punk rock) with a MM SUB Sterling and a Mesa M-Pulse600 through a Powerhouse 410. Right now the mixing process isn't done yet but I switched bass and bought a 97 American Deluxe Precision (with a quarter pounder on). So now I'm considering if it's worth re-recording with better gear. If so, I'm gonna rent a full tube amp but I'll use again the Powerhouse410 (I can't rent a cab). The available options for rental are the SVT's Classic/AV/VR, SVT-2 Y , SVT-2 PRO, the Mesa 400plus and the AD200B...
    I can't test all of them so I need some help!

    I always wanted to do that!

    Seriously, there are a ton of threads about this, and frankly, the genre really doesn't matter.

    With that being said, I'm very partial to Ampeg, and would go with the SVT-VR.

    I would suggest recording bass direct, without an amp at all.

    Whatever you can find for $100 or less that has beer stains and gum stuck to it, maybe some duct tape, and if you can swing it, some random spraypainted designs.

    Seriously though, the amp you have is probably fine.
