I tested a Classic 50, a lot of people say they love its cleans but i didnt really like them that much. i tried an AC 30CC2 on the same day and loved the cleans but im not sure how good it would be for more high gain stuff

Maybe a JCM 800 combo? I think some Mesa combos would be in your price range as well, a Stiletto or some such.
The obligatory gear list: Gibson SG standard,Maverick F-1,Epiphone Sheraton,'68 reissuse Jap Strat, Orange Rocker 30 and various pedals.

Well if you don't mind using pedals the vox or a fender (hot rod) could be good.

Take a look at Orange if you can afford one.
A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a closed-minded moron.

I was seriously considering Orange but they're very hard to get in Ireland so i wouldn't be able to test it first, i'd really love one though. I asked a guy in one of the shops if he could get me one and he got all pissed off and said that Marshall were way better than Orange....asshole

I feel bad that you can't find orange dealers in Ireland =\. I would suggest looking into a marshall jcm 800-900 then.
