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.

I would attenuate a Mesa F30 or F50 to be honest. They don't make them anymore but you can pick them up for a reasonable price. And if you really want a true heavy sound then chucking an EQ in at the effects loop makes it pretty darn mean.
