use the highest end amp you can ever find.

joke man.
5150/6505 i'd be guess or mesa rectifier.
look at combos. far better deals because you don't have to pay for both heads and cabs.

Wow! clearly have no idea about the Australian market =) those suggestions are out of the TS's price range.

Mesa? $4000+

Peavey 6505? $2800 - $3000

buying used isn't really an option here since these amps come up for sale once in a blue moon if ever.

Bugera? B-52? Randall? Valveking with an overdrive pedal?

Maybe a Peavey Valveking?

Also, don't go for a digital amp. (one with effects in it) The ONLY one I've seen that sounds good is the Line 6 Veta, and it's way out of you price range.
Nope, no sig here.

Nice! that's an amazing price! So amazing that I'm very skeptical. Sounds like a bait and switch to me

An effects loop is basically an output and an input after the preamp. Out to the pedal, and back to the amp. Some effects sound better or cleaner when you put them in it.
