What do ya'll think. Nothing crazy but something that takes all sorts of pedals really well.
Roland amps love pedals.
Roland Blues Cube Artist
I like '90s era SS Fender combos for what I'd call "honest SS amps". Maybe a Stage SE 1x12. Dual channel, nice clean, and a 1x12 that gives a hundred options for flavor.
Check out the Quilter stuff. I just snagged a Micropro Mach 2 head to ease the pain of a back injury and have been extremely impressed with its ability to jive with my OD pedals. It seems to do this as well as my tube amps...maybe even better than some of them.
At 7 lbs with a padded carrying case, it's a real winner!
Vague question will get non-specific answers....
Looking for light weight? Combos? Volume level/range? Price range?
Roland, Vox, Tech21, Orange, Peavey, Quilter, Award-Session, and Pritchard all manufacture SS amps that take pedals well. Add others (Koch, Blug) if you consider hybrids.
Epiphone Triggerman 60
...pretty hard to beat the VOX Pathfinder 15R
Nothing but good luck with the "DV Mark little-jazz"
Quilter. Small, light loud sounds good. Excellent customer service and the block series are cheap.
Stick them on your pedalboard with and power them by a courtesy outlet.

My Quilter Tone Block takes all of my pedals well.
Best I've found is a Pritchard, which sounds unbelievable with my Bogner Burnley or Wessex in front of it. Quilter isn't bad, either.
80's Peavey Bandit 65...love that amp
And then I would just buy myself a cabinet? Or would there be a better option for just home playing.
Yeah, the Tone Block is just a mini head. You would need a cab.
If I don't want to go too high yet for the Artist, what about the Blues Cube hot?
Also Tech 21 TM 30 and 60
