Smoothest distortion tone

I am in the market for a high gain head. I am looking for something excessively smooth, like a tubescreamer but obviously with lots of gain and without the mid-range hump.

I can spend about $1000-$1200.

Unfortunately, where I live, all they sell is the typical Fender combos, Marshalls, and a whole lotta Traynors, but if I have to buy online I will.

This will be used primarily for recording not gigging.

Find a used Soldano HR50+ or HR50 or avenger. They would be in your price range, and Soldano tone is pure liquid harmonic mojo. You really need to hear a Soldano before making a final choice if you want smooth. I had an HR50+, and it was smooth! I only sold it to get my SLO, which I'll have for life. You cannot got wrong with a Soldano if you want smooth hi gain overdrive dripping with harmonics and three dimensional liquid tone...!!!!
