i've heard good and bad things about the B-52. it looks like a solid amp, but some reviews i've read say that it has had technical difficulties.

if your worried about noise, look into an ISP Decimator to go with the amp.

the only other thing i could recommend is a Peavey ValveKing, but idk how cleans are on it.

are you going to be gigging, or is this for practice?? if for practice, then try a Randall RM20 combo with a Blackface module. you might have to look used to get it within your budget, but its worth it.

as i said, used will be your best option. but you may have to up your budget a little bit to like $500 or $600. but the versatility of this amp makes it worth it.

For atmospheric stuff I'd personally go with a Fender Bandmaster or used Fender Bassman + pedals. I'm not sure the amps in that price range have good enough cleans for it (aside from the Peavey Classic 30 or a modded Valveking or Crate Vintage Club series).
