Hey guys I'm buying an amp this week and have narrowed down my options to:

-Mesa Boogie Single Rectifier
-Vox Night Train 50
-Fender Supersonic 60 with voodoo amps deluxe mod

I am absolutely willing to go used. I live in Denver. I can't spend anymore than $700 and cheaper is definitely better. I am basically looking for a very meaty solid gain that is not fizzy and a great clean channel. Ill be running a jag with two mid output duncan humbuckers in it through a board consisting of a volume pedal, dd-6, ds-1 sunday driver and sd-1. Also include any other amps that might fit this price range and style. My band plays music in the vain of The Wonder Years and The Early November so sort of indie-ish pop punk. Thanks!
Pm me if you've got some pedals to sell

The mesa f-50 comes to mind but I don't know if it comes in a head, the f100 comew with a 100/60 switch. They are pretty nice high gain amps.

I'd honestly fap to anything with a set of genitals as long as I find it aesthetically appealing.

I'm a little bit iffy on cheaper amps. I haven't ever actually played a carvin but I have gone through 10+ amps in the last 3 years with most of them being cheaper. I'll check it out. Please more suggestions on any heads OR combos that would fit this bill. Higher wattage is also okay.

I play out of a bugera 2x12 with one v30 and one bugera speaker. Its a great sounding match but im intending on replacing it with an avatar 4x12 right after I get the head. Let me check out that gc listing. A lot of what im looking at is through gc's used stuff.

There is an alchemist 112 combo on your Craigslist. Not sure how high gain it really is or what high gain means to you.

There is also a 5150 combo, which may not work for you depending on what you think a good clean channel is.

And a 212 peavey ultra combo, for pretty cheap, which may or may not work for you.

So you have to try some of these to see what you think.

Guitar center was blowing out the alchemist combos for a stupid low price recently, maybe you should call and see if you can go try one? If it works for you then cut a deal?

There is also a vintage modern 50 watt head on your Craigslist but I dont think it's what most people would consider high gain. But I thought I'd mention it.

And a 100 watt jcm800 head with kt88 tubes, it says it's from 1987 and has serious mojo in the pics. It may work for you but it's a single channel job.
Good luck.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

Yeah, hit up your craigslist. Those all look like solid recs.

Technically the Single Rec, NT-50, and SuperSonic would all work well too - but are all pretty different. On second thought, maybe they are not that different but they are all solid choices too.

Engl Fireball 50 Watt. Or there was an 50 watt version of powerball too i guess

I'd recommend checking out Jet city heads, they have a 50w model. I'd also suggest looking for a Orange Rocker 30 or a Thunder 30 if you can find/afford one, very good heads.

Orange Rocker 30
Harley Benton 212 (w/Greenbacks)
Ernie Ball Vp jr
Swollen Pickle fuzz
Maxon OD808
