You should get a new amp, which will let you join/start a band and lets you gig - and upgrade your strat (new pickups or something).

Also, this is a totally "up to you" decision, so I don't see why you asked on here

from the Ultimate electric guitar info thread:

Electric Guitar: the 10 commandments.

1: Though shalt not play an expensive guitar through a cheap amp.

Your amp is more important than your guitar. 80%-95% of your tone is in your amp (an entirely scientifically-sound percentage, that I just made up. You know what I mean, though). Spend accordingly: under £400, split your budget between guitar and amp about evenly as some cheap guitars play VERY poorly, and you need to normally spend at least about £150 to get something playable, ditto for the amp; up to about £1500-£2000, a 2:1 ratio on amp to guitar is about right- over this, split it about evenly, or however you want (but make sure you?re spending at least about £1000 on the amp). Increasing the cost of your guitar will make it FEEL better to play, but it?ll only SOUND slightly better.

2: Thou shalt read #1 again. It?s that important.

i know half stacks look good but, solid state in half stack or in combo form are exactly the same.

knowing that, and giving that u have so much to spend, u should really try out a few Tube combos.
a tube is going to give u the amazing cleans u crave, the volume u need, and the overdrive u want.

fender, better cleans, but u can get metal with a pedal...

or maybe a used peavey.

if ur not into it thats fine, just giving u options, u might not have thought of.
