hey guys, so i have just over $1000 and i dont know what to do.

i have 3 choices im looking at. I dont really want to dump all the money on it though.
I am running a yamaha rgxa2, which i am very impressed with, and a mg100hdfx head with the matching cab.

I am looking for a better more clear sound in a way.

1) find a used mccarty. since i have always wanted one.

2) get a tube head

3) get new speakers or a new cab.

*Edit
4) i could get a tube amp and save some more and get 2 vintage 30's and 2 black shadow speakers and put them in a x pattern like on the diezel cabs.

What do you think the best option would be for me?

Get a tube combo, maybe? I hear the MG cabs aren't great.
all the world's indeed a stage and we are merely players

Tube combo. Difference is like night and day. The MG cab is not the greatest but it'll get you by.
#4
Get a valve combo without a doubt.

For the best tingle, use Original Source mint. That shit feels amazing on your balls.

tube combo for sure.
putting new speakers in the mg cab is like putting rims on a really really crappy car.

what styles of music do you play? putting more money into an good amp is probably the best thing you could do.

^ true, the 5150 is discontinued, but just as equal to the 6505, and cheaper to find used.

how are the cheaper tube heads, like the peavey windsor/ other heads around that price?

i would like to stick with a half stack. what other heads would be good, if i got the speakers like i said in #4.

^ or you can get teh windsor and a 1960A cab

but why sacrifice tone for a penile enlargement

are you going to be gigging a lot?

only go for a halfstack if your wallet can support it. you're only short-changing yourself by choosing a cheaper halfstack rather than a good combo.
