At the moment i am in the market for a really good sounding clean amp, it will need to have lots of headroom, as i need to use it for jazz band. Just to clarify it must be a head, as my parents just purchased me a 2x12 cab. (they thought i could plug right into it. )

Budget : > $400usd.

Squier classic vibe 50's strat, modded.

Coming soon to a pedal board near you:

Area 51 wah
Skreddy Lunar Module
Malekko 616 Ekko

Do you care if it's tube or ss? You'd be hard pressed to get a tube head in that range. Maybe a blackheart.

D'oh. You said tube. My bad.

that's pretty nice of them.

do you like fender cleans?
do you play other styles besides jazz?
can you buy used?

It's not tube, but an Ampeg VH140C would do you great. Cleans comparable to a jazz chorus, not to mention an amazing overdrive channel should you feel the need for some br00talz. You should be able to find one under 400 used.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

You might be able to grab an old used Fender for 400. You can sometimes find Bandmasters at that price. Or the fender styled amp that I believe Leo made called Music Man

I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

i think the peavey valveking head is around your price range, and they sound pretty sweet.
also check craigslist, people are really hurting for cash in this economy
