Actually, you can indeed get some nice tube amps within that budget.
They wont be the very absolute best but, nice none the less.
Keep in mind that you can also spend thousands on a transistor amp but that is not necessary either to get great sound.
IMO, it would be better getting something inexpensive to first get you going....
Then, you can take you time to and do your research about amps , also learning a bit more along the way.... and get a tube amp that you really want.
Don't forget that you also need speakers and they are all important for great sound, no matter what amp you get/have.
