What would be a good tube amp ( head and cab or combo) for around $350 or do I go the used path? Sorry for the new question?
You won't be able to afford a very good head/cab combo for $350 on the used market unless you luck into one hell of a deal (it can happen!). You will most likely be looking at low power combos. Even then you may need to make your budget stretch to $450 to find something really to your taste.What would be a good tube amp ( head and cab or combo) for around $350 or do I go the used path?

For 350 all in, even used, the choices are rather limited so what the OP wants and will use it for are nearly immaterial.Definitely used.
The other part is, of course, "it depends" on what you're looking for. But if say looking for Blues, Rock, pedal platform, and flexibility, and with some non-trivial patience and effort, you can get and be really happy with a Fender Blues Jr. for $350 (that is a low number, but I know for a fact not at all impossible).
I'd look for a Fender Blues Jr, or Pro Jr. Epiphone Valve Jr, Vox AC4 or 10, vintage Traynor or Pepco. Try out anything you can between 4 and 15W or so and see what suits you best.I'm looking for a Blues/Rock tone but for home use ( not ready for giging or recording yet. Not that good of a player yet. ) Btw cboutilier, your comment made me chuckle, don't know why. Also I may experiment with pedal at a later date, which I'm guessing has to have a good or adequate clean channel. BTW Budda, about head and cab,that might of been hopefully thinking on my part, but one can dream I guess. Thanks in advance for all your inputs and responses.

What's the point of adjustable power settings on a solid state amp?
It would depend on how well said SS amp replicates the way tube amps work .What's the point of adjustable power settings on a solid state amp?
Wouldn't turning down the master volume achieve the same result?
