It will be used for practice in my bedroom.
I am willing to go used.
I could up my budget to $600 if the amp is really good.
You could save some money and just get a roland 40xl, it sounds pretty badass for a SS. If you want tube, maybe a used tiny terror combo or a blacksar ht20.
Blackstar HT-1R, HT-5R, HT-20
Jet City jca20 or jca22 (when it comes out)
Used Mesa boogie f30, there's one on eBay for 650:

Another factor that has grown this myth is a bunch of opinionated guys who really don't know what they're talking about, which to be brutally honest is a bunch of you guys on here.
You get much out of the price for the Roland cubes...
30x and greater got built-in effetcs like distortion delay and reverb.
Works well for me, but it looks like with your budget you will be abe to buy more expensive stuff.
