Or the Navitron Autodrive?

Anyway OP, you're being silly and going down totally the wrong route.

The iRig is a fun little practice/demo recording tool, but the preamp of any half decent modelling combo will outclass it - with much less hassle or risk of batteries dying. Of you could plug into the PC and get better AD/DA comversion and better modelling.

Then it's time to start listening to what sounds good to you. You need to start listening to it some day so why not start it now? Go and try some amps in a guitar store and find out if something has a sound that pleases your ears. Playing the guitar is about making good sounding music. So it's also about listening, not just playing.

Manufacturers can build cheap crappy amps and sell them because people will buy them because they have Marshall or Fender logo on them and don't cost that much.

Lol, stop disappointing in me, guys)

I'm not that reach to purchase expensive gear yet! And all this crappy digital amplification is yet something I can afford. Don't tell me that if I could afford a damn tablet, I can afford a wonderful amp and/or a cab). I got a guitar much later than the device.

That's why I'm just asking, looking for something to begin with. And I see all your points, I do).

So, since I've changed my mind and look for a combo-amp, what are other options under 500 bucks to check out?

Seriously, TS, give us the information that Cath asked for and that I asked for. Once you do that, we can actually help you. Until then, Vypyr.

If you aren't willing to go used, then you're gonna have way less options and you're gonna have to seriously compromise on at least one of those tones.

I mean, even with your budget, you aren't getting Jazz cleans and Rock N Roll overdrive in one box.

I would say to see about getting a Marshall JCM2000 DSL401, but you would HAVE to go used. They have new ones, but they aren't quite as nice. You could check those out, too, though.

You could get the DSL15H and then get a 2x12 combo.

I'm not sure if they have Jet City over there, but you could check them out. The JCA22 might work for you, but the cleans aren't great.

You might look into a Valveking, but they really aren't anything to write home about.

Check to see if Blackheart is available there

If you're okay with Hybrid, you could look into Blackstar's HT series stuff

If you could find a used Crate V series or Palamino, they aren't bad, but again, you won't have great cleans.

That's all I've got for now, but if I think of anything else, I'll let you know. Maybe if you could give us a list of brands that are available? Also, you should seriously consider going used.

Yes. But it's not made any more so you need to go used. You won't find a new one. And I would really go used if Blues Junior costs that much ($1000). In some other country you could get two Blues Jrs for the same price. And why not used? It really doesn't matter how old your amp is. If it was about guitars, I would rather go new but amps really don't get that much worse when they get older (people still use Marshall amps from the 70s and 80s because they sound better than the new ones). I have over 10 years old Laney VC30 (I bought it used this year) and it works well. Actually the older ones are said to have better speakers than the new ones. And I bought my VC30 for under half the price of a new one. I have only had to do one thing: Change a microphonic pre amp tube. But usually people recommend you to swap the stock tubes even if the amp is new because it doesn't sound as good with cheap stock tubes.
