The Mode Four is pretty much a gimmick... for the money you're better off going with a good tube amp.

For real big gigs you should be mic'ing your amp anyway. What type of music (more specifically than just "clean, rock, classic rock" do you want to play? What types of bands do you want to sound like?

a JCM 800 or 900 would likely do the trick
Now officially has too much gear to list

PM me if you want to know about my recording setup

Yeah a Marshall JCM800 maybe... those go for around $2000 USD new... which is something like $2300 CAD I believe.
But you'll also want a good overdrive pedal with it, probably.

With a budget that big though... the possibilities are endless.

Trust me, a 100 watt tube amp is extremely loud...

You shouldn't be attempting to play extremely large gigs without mic'ing your amp and running it into the PA anway, to be honest.

what is mic'ing an amp never heard of it

If you don't know what micing is, you really should rethink buying a pair of $2000 guitars and a $1600 amp.

lol music shops loooooove guys like you!!!

a JCM800 as mentioned should nail most of those sounds you like, and a 100W tube amp is plenty, like more than enough.

when you mic an amp, you take a microphone and point it toward the amp's speaker and then run that mic into the mixer in the back which controls the mics. your amps sound then comes through the "mains" or the PA system in the venue. virtually every big band in the world mic's their amp. you name the band, they do it. since all amps are mic'ed during gigs, there is no need really to have a very loud amp, because mic'ing it will just make it louder and able to be heard.

also, a 100 watt tube amp is louder than a 350 watt solid state amp. tubes produce harmonics that make the amp seem louder to the human ear.

i really would recommend the jcm 800 or 900 for your music. most of the artists you listed used this amp for their sound.

yeah 100 watts tube will cause permanent hearing loss if you crank it for long enough, its painfully loud, and probably almost as loud as the MF350 (with its SS power section) and it sounds a whole lot better.

Id reccomend a JCM800, the JCM900 is aimed for slighty more modern music!
