Save up some more, and get a Hot Rod Deluxe and a Tubescreamer. Plenty loud; if you need more clean headroom get a blues deluxe.

Fender Strat
Epi Les Paul
Taylor 110
Boss TU-2
Omega Amps Hot Rod Deluxe (Dumble mod)
Clean/Drive/More Drive footswitch
Mid boost/Preamp boost footswitch

^Oh, he doesn't own the HRD. He has an 18 watter Marshall thingie going on.

i know, but he was 'thimning of a HRD' vs a Peavey C50 and i was wondering if a HRD was really that crappy for Cream?Hendrix?SRV?

generally i agree....and not threadjacking

but a deluxe with an OD would get that no?
Right now, I'd really like to recommend the super reverb at 45 watts. But it's out of your price range.

Here's what I would do: SAVE more money (I know it's hard but it's worth it!) and get exactly what you want. I would get a used Super Reverb. I would not settle for a hot rod or classic peavey. They're just ok, but you're going to want something else later on. I've been through it too many times.

Good luck
Fender , vox, and marshall amps... probably have the best hard rock tones your looking for.. and if you want good blues tones... get a fender or a cheap epiphone guitar

and screw distortion pedals.. just find an amp with good gain setting you like. most blues-rock guitarists just mix the right guitar and the right amp.
Either a Peavey Classic or the Fender will get the job done. The Classic 30/50 will get you the best OD, but it won't be an american voiced OD like you'd want for SRV. The Fender's cleans are nice, but it has crap OD. If you already have a tubescreamer, that could work out, but it still seems a little useless to get a 3 channel amp just for one of the channels. I really like my Ampeg Reverberocket for basically the same type of music you play. You'd REALLY be stretching to find it used in your price range, though. If you can stretch your budget a bit, keep an eye out for one, maybe the 1x12 reissue. I think it would suit you perfectly.

Just so you know, I read everything you type in a Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs voice.

I mean in Kyle's case, it is in the best interest of mankind that he impregnate anything that looks at him funny...
its od really isnt crap. it can be crap when its really quiet though, and it is somewhat fizzy.
when you use a Tubescreamer over top of the drive channel, its sounds really nice.
check out my demo of it in my profile.
