I am in a same situation, i have a Fender practice amp and i'm looking to get a new one soon.

Your budget is much bigger than mine, but from what i've been trying out i can say that Peavey Vypyrs are excellent amps.

If your budget is really almost $600 you probably could get a Tube amp for that money.

I myself will probably get Vypyr 30W: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Peavey-Vypyr-30-30W-1x12-Guitar-Combo-Amp-104922869-i1413606.gc

Or maybe if i get some extra money 75W one: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Peavey-Vypyr-75-75W-1x12-Guitar-Combo-Amp-104922877-i1413607.gc

But its all $200-$300 price, you probably could get something really good for your budget.

For under $600 from Vypyr series they got a 60W Tube amp, that also sounds excellent.

Though i'm a big fan of Peavey Vypyrs there might be a loads of other good amps available that i am not aware about.

But in the end its all up to you, go to the store and try different amps and see which one you like the most.

Let us know what u went with.
