What amp do i want?

I want to start looking for a head here shorty and dont really know what to look at. Currently im using a Bugera 333xl Infinium and while this head has been great id like to start looking for a "proper" amp and keep this for a backup, I know these get no love around here lol.

I want 3 channels prefferably and decent cleans, Im leaning towards a dual rec but is there anything else i should look at? Im thinking the 6505 is pretty much a 1 trick pony or isnt it? Want to keep it around a $1000 new or used. i dont need anyone to search the internet for me just recomend some amps to look for. Heres a list of the songs my band is currently playing, but keep in mind it would be nice if the amp would pull off other genre as well...less hard stuff. I play lead guitar if that makes any difference. My cab is a orange 2x12 closed back.

Still counting- Volbeat
Bad Girlfriend- Theory of a deadman
Whatever- Godsmack
Walk- Foo fighters
Far Behind - Candlebox
Nightmare- AX7
Isolation- Alter bridge
Life is Beautiful-Sixx am
Sound of Madness- Shinedown
Bodies- Drowning Pool
Indians- Anthrax
Holy Diver- Killswitch version
Polyamourous- Breaking benjamin
Master of Puppets- metallica
Still of the Night- Whitesnake
Your Betrayal- BFMV
Figured You Out- Nickelback
Modern Day Cowboy- Tesla
Given Up- Linkin Park
Remedy- Seether
Face Down- Red Jumpsuit..
Animal i have Become- Three days grace
Slither-Velvot Revolver
Lifeline- papa roach
So Cold- Breaking Benjamin
Crawling in the Dark- Hoobastank
Fade to Black- Metallica
Break- Three Days Grace
Hysteria- Muse
Diamond Eyes- Shinedown

If you think the bugera does the job but want something more reliable and gigworthy then go for a peavey jsx. The 6505 isn't a 1 trick pony in my opinion but it's distortion is far superior to it's cleans. For the amount of different sounds you intend to capture you'll need something versatile, which the JSX is.

Good luck in your amp search

DSL has 2 chs with 2 modes per ch. TSL has 3 chs and is geared more twards Nu-Metal. They made the TSL to compete with amps like the Dual rectifier and it didn't do that well selling.
