IMPULSES:

Always research the best cabs for the genres you are playing in because it makes impulse buying or selecting a lot easier, especially if you have a boatload of impulses. It just makes navigating your impulses a little easier when you know what you are looking for in advance.

With punk rock, usually you record two tones to compliment each other. On one side you will want an impulses that accents and works well with a bit of mid scoop and saturation. On the opposite side you will want to use an impulse that has more of a mid focus to help the other tone cut nicely.

Here’s a few options that can be found pretty easily and several companies offer free versions of these cabinets.
