    Hey guys, Im looking for a new amp. I have about $1000 Canadian to spend and am willing to go over that amount slightly. I need to play over a drummer and guitarist in a punk band. Any suggestions for amps would be greatly appreciated.

    i perosnally use an SWR workingman's 15 and love it, i paid $600 US for it brand new 3 years ago.

    i recommend it, as i've suggested the very amp to 4 of my friends and we are all happy.

    however, another amp i highly recommend is the roland 700...i forget the exact model name... maybe db700? but in any case, it's a bit prcier but the sound out of it is a bit more focused, and easier to lug around.
