    Jazz Chorus or a Lab Series amp would do quite nicely and can be found for cheap coin. People keep forgetting about these amps, but they were extremely popular on stage for loud and clean tones for a very long time.

    MusicMan 100 watt amp with two 12s will loud, clean, probably cheap and definitely heavy.

    You can't go wrong for a hundred bucks! Those things were built like tanks.
    That Katana 50 I bought my granddaughter real cheaply built to me. It has to be to retail at $220, with free shipping!

    I wouldn't say my Katana 100 is loud enough for unmiced big clean shows though

    He said they're replacing a Peavey Classic 30. I would think that a Kat 100 would be as loud as that.

    Orange Crush 60 if you can find one. Or a Bandit. My favorites are the 90’s-00’s Silver stripe and Red Stripe transtube models. I bought the last one I had for $80, gigged it for a couple years and sold it for $100.

    Many old Peaveys are pretty bulletproof.

    Sure but for a hundred bucks, play it into the ground.

    I gigged with a Fender Stage 212 for many years. Loud, clean, you couldn’t break that thing and not expensive to buy. One of the best amp that I had.

    UPDATE #2 (See Post #19 for Update #1). Not only is the search over,
    but I've cleaned the new/old amp up some -- inside and out, no more
    scratchy pots -- and it's ready for my buddy. Note also the little switch
    I rigged up on the back, on the off-chance that he or anybody else wants
    to use the dirt channel. Again, pictured with Peavey Patriot of the same
    era. Thanks again for all your suggestions.
