If you can find a Vintage Roland Cube 60 in CL for a fair price, grab it!!!
These are GREAT sounding SS amps. Sparkling Chimey Cleans like a Jazz Chorus 120 (with no Chorus) with miles of headroom and yet a really nice thick OD channel. Lush Reverb onboard as well. And it's a 1X12 Combo (speaker is the only weak point and it ain't bad.) And, it takes pedals well and has a FX Loop.
I've seen them for as low as $50. Lately, I see people asking hundreds of dollars on eBAY.
I've had one for over 30 years and I'll never sell it! And despite its compact size, it will BLOW the doors off the house!
If you're looking for an amp, it's time to move UP regardless of the low budget!
I used one of these for many months back in 1981 I believe jamming with some buddies in the military. Very impressive sound and seriously built solid SS amp. IMO these were way beyond todays Cubes but IIRC they were pretty expensive back then as well.
