My parents are gonna be buying me a head and 2x12 cab for Christmas. Thing is, I don't know which ones to choose.

I need (for the head):
- Good Distortion
- Good Cleans
- 2 channels, more preferably
- Under $1500, preferably (I'm going to have to pay for the rest if it's over 1500)
- it to be Footswitchable

I play a wide variety of styles, I want this amp to be able to cover a wide range of tones (from blues to Nile). I want to try and stay away from the 6505, apparently it only has two channels, and the cleans aren't too good. 3 channels would be optimum for me(Rhythm, Lead, Clean), but more than 3 would be good too.

Thanks in advance
