You can get a Tiny Terror head for $400. With a 1x12 it is loud enough for a small bar. Or move some more air with a borrowed 4x12 or mic it. Or get a used Epi Valve Jr head and convert it into a Marshall 18 watt Lite clone for a total of $250...

Or a Classic 30 and some pedals

Id suggest the peavey ValveKing 112. It really is great, put a danelectro fish n chips EQ in front of it and its brilliant! and within your budget for the two of em.

I'd have to agree on the b-52. It's a great amp. Not too much gain on the OD channel but i think it sounded great when i threw a metal core 2 pedal in front of it on the clean channel (which sounds great btw). Plus it's cheap. I'd say that'd be your best bet.

go for a used Peavey classic 30 and a overdrive.

The reason you shouldn't go bugera or b-52 is that they can have reliability issues, and if you're gigging, then you need reliable.

You can also get a hot rod deluxe. but it wouldn't do metal. So the classic is the most versatile
