Any suggestions? I'm looking for tone that ranges from good cleans to insane crunching distortion like Lamb of God or Pantera (pretty much uber versatile). Somewhere in the ~50W range (maybe less?)... I don't plan on playing any huge gigs (or any, soon, lol) but I'd like something thats loud enough for band practice and/or a small gig but not too loud. The full package (whether it is combo or stack) should be under $1K, but still quality (if possible, lulz).
Any suggestions? I'm hitting up Guitar Center this friday to check them out. I don't really have the money right now, but I'm still looking for something for the future

if it had a switchable output power, that would be epic as hell

Used 6505 combo or Carvin V3 combo currently on sale for $1099. And unlike many the V3 combos actually comes stocked with great speakers. If you call and pester them enough,you could probably get free shipping too.
5150 Combo
LTD Viper 400 (EMG 81/85)
A Peavey 5150 (used), Randall RG50TC, B-52 AT112 would all be worth looking into. I'm not good on prices in the US, so I don't know if this would be possible, but you could also look for some kind of used Mesa.
