I take it you want a combo.
Not too much in that budget

Randall RG50TC
Peavey Valveking with an OD
Bugera 333xl

Your best bet would be to go used

Used Peavey VTM (this one is really good)
Used Peavey Ultra (this one is basically a XXX for cheaper)
Used Peavey XXX
Used Mesa .50 Caliber
Used Mesa DC-2
Used Mesa F-30
Used Sovtek Mig 60 with an OD

so you want a tube amp that will need a good distortion/overdrive pedal, a good wah pedal and a good reverb pedal, think you will need some more money
Inspired by Ibanez RGA321F Prestige, Gibson Les Paul Standard
Powered by CAA OD100 standard+ , Mesa 2x12

This is some nice, solid advice. Why not add the Peavey 5150/6505 combo to this list, or is it too expensive stateside (even used)?

And TS, get the amp first, then save up and get the pedals later, plus you can test the wah etc. through your lovely new valve combo...

I dont really like to bandwagon on the 5150, as I personally believe there are better amps than you can get for it used. I would try one TS if you like want to.

But TS just look into any of the amps I listed and you should be good.

Ok, fair enough. I tried one myself, and chose my Laney over it (extra warmth and Opeth credentials )

And TS, there is nothing wrong with going used, valve amps age very well. Early Marshalls etc. are still highly sought after, for example.

I would recommend a 5150/6505 but I'm not sure on stateside pricing (mine cost me £700/$1400 new and that was reduced by over £250)

I bet theo is searching craigslist right now.
Heads he will find.
http://baltimore.craigslist.org/msg/822961578.html Peavey VTM - never tried this one but you should for $300. Would need a cab with speakers but that's $250-$300.
http://baltimore.craigslist.org/msg/852747822.html 5150 II head, $400. Again, need a cab.

But the list Hwytohell gave you is a good one to work off of.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
