you don't want a hiwatt, out of budget and more vintag-esque tone.

i haven't played anything by blackheart other than one of their mini stacks. that was a long time ago, and i don't really even remember.

i am not overly familiar with any of those bands, but a XXX/JSX 5150/6505 or a dual rec would likely do fine for all of them. choose which you like best.

Spiders are really bad. That's what gives line6 a bad smell. They made some good amps and some great preamp/DSP and then dropped the spider on everybody ruining the reputation they had been building.
Behringer stuff is functional at best. Cheap and nasty.

6505/5150, JSX/XXX/Ultra or a mesa dual rec.
A Vyper tube would probably satisfy you too. They have a 6505 power amp, analog modelling preamp plus effects.

No to both. Neither are anything close to what you want.

Yeah it seems peavey is still going to be the correct option. I'll try out a few different ones. In Australia a new 6505 sets u back about 1800 without a cab

This. The Ultra/XXX/JSX and the 6505/5150 series are built really well. Can't go wrong going used as long as you can sample it first or know you can return it if it doesn't work.
