Cheap Strong Clean Amp

I need an amp. One that has good headroom and stays clean with decent power. I don't need it to have a good gain channel but a good clean is a must. Also I don't care if it's tube or solid state and it has to be less that $500. Any reccommendations?

New stuff please, I'll look at the used stuff I can, but remeber i'm in Japan so buying an amp on the bay and having it shipped is probably not going to happen.

I was thinging about a Peavy Bandit 112 or a Peavy studio 112, but it seems that they are made to have good gain channels with the transtube tech. That's okay except I can't see any decent reviews of the clean alone that go beyond "the clean is good."

Re: Cheap Strong Clean Amp

peavey's good clean amps are their classic series imo. my singer has one (classic 50 2x12) and it sounds great. i will probably pick one up eventually. they are fairly cheap too. the only thing that may not work out for you is the headroom issue as headroom (with a tube amp) is connected with high wattage. i will say it is a pretty loud amp even at low volumes (she usually gets it up to about 3), so maybe that will work for you.
