If the figure on www.x-rates is correct $400 = 312-ish Euros (0.781494 euros = 1 US dollar x 400 = 312.59 euros)

I've had a quick look on www.thomann.de. and these amps are within or around that price range:

http://www.thomann.de/gb/line6_spider_iii_75112.htm
http://www.thomann.de/gb/fender_fm212dsp.htm

I didn't bother looking at half stacks because for $400 I doubt you'd get a good one.

Prices might be different in America but those are what I found. I hope it helps.

The prices don't translate based solely on the exchange rate, because of some shipping costs, a lot of the amps you posted are abound 300 USD

I would look for a tube combo, I assume you wanted 75 SS watts, I prefer my tube amps, they make a huge difference.

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Peavey-ValveKing-112-Combo-Amp?sku=481442- A lot of people like these
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/B52-60Watt-1x12-Tube-Combo?sku=480046- Never Played it my self, but hear some good things
http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Peavey-Windsor-Studio-All-Tube-Guitar-Combo-Amp?sku=481660- Quite nice when I played it, it has a more British tone then most Peavey's

you dont need 75 watts dude, especially if your looking at tube amps. get the b-52 at112, it can do blues well, and it has a great grunge and metal sound. has reverb also, so i guess thats a plus

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

I would disagree with those, not because any of them are particularity bad, but because they're all practice amps, which is what he has already. I would recommend the B-52 combo; it's not 75W, but I doubt you'll get that many chances to crank it.

You really don't need 75 watts.

I played a pretty small gig recently and my Rebel 20 (20 watts) was on 3, and people told me that they could barely hear the drummer, who was playing pretty hard. You only need 20-30 watts tube for gigs generally, and you can always mic the amp if it's not enough.

I recommend the Valveking and the B-52 also.
