For £600, you shouldn't have too much trouble finding a clean, used SF Twin. In fact, a quick gumtree search just turned one up in Inverness for £500...

New Fenders of the size you're after will be a bit over your budget. Hit the guitar shops and try out a Vox or two and see how you get on with them...I see the 1x12 AC30S1 has been reduced in a lot of places, and you can get one new in the £500-600 range. I'd imagine that would give you more than enough grunt to keep up with a loud/heavy bass and drums.

Seconded (thirded? fourthed?) on a DRRI. I play mine with a super heavy-handed drummer and it doesn't have any trouble keeping up.

Yeah DRRIs are pretty overbudget.
Not been that into examples I've heard either.

Sorry, that's surprising. They can be found pretty easily for less than $800 here in the states (~£600).
