I've been thinking about getting a new amp for a while.
I need a good combo amp that is less than 1000 dollars, I'm not really sure where to start looking.
I play heavy metal most of the time, but I still need a good clean channel.
Any ideas?

ENGL Thunder/Screamer

Or a used Peavey 6505/5150 212 combo.

EDIT: Forget the Peavey if you need good cleans.

You suggest him a 650$ solid state stack while he is looking for a up to 1000$ combo?

Peavey JSX/XXX. Cleans will be more usable than the 5150/6505.

If you like the Mesa high gain tones (a little looser), you might be able to score a Rect-O-Verb combo in the $1000-ish range. I've seen them locally for $850.
