Awh, c'mon! This is all a joke. Coming from an old school 80's punkrock scumbag, let me tell you that all you really need is something that is loud and will make alot of rude noise. Your tone/sound is mainly going to come from your attitude and you can't buy that anywhere for any amount of money. An obscenely expensive Mesa Boogie is going to sound like shit anyway when you are playing lousy venues with an inexperienced soundman running cheap and crappy equipment himself. Let your bad attitude make the noise so you can save your money for gas and beer.
