im thinking of getting a tube amp/head, and im trying to keep it below 1000$. if it is a head, im trying to keep it less than that, so i can get a cabinet. im not too worried about the cost of the cab, because i know people who could make them, and at that point it is just paying for the speakers.

as far as music styles go, i play pretty much everything, from satriani to zeppelin to RHCP to pink floyd to metallica to AC/DC, so I need something fairly versatile.
Im not incredibly into metal, so i dont need some super high gain amp, but id like it to have enough to venture off into that kind of stuff if i get interested.

gearwise, i have an ibanez s470, boss me-50, ds-1, and i might get a tubescreamer. the me-50 can do most effects, so built in effects are not needed, and it has loads of distortions/OD's on it, so i could always boost a low gain amp with that.

I recently saw the traynor Traynor YCS100H Custom Special, and was pretty interested with that, and ive also been looking at the marshall jcm2000. are those amps good choices? any suggestions?

i really want it to have a really good clean sound. ive never played one of those mesas, but ive heard that it [the clean sound] isnt necessarily up to par. anyone play that traynor? the reviews were pretty good on musicians friend, just they were mostly by metalheads
