You could try one of those Blackstar HT-5 mini heads, they are 5 watts amps but they are good to play in the bedroom.

Morbid angel(where the slime live...7 string), suffocation, cock and ball torture, and carcass. Like I said... looking for a thick meaty tone with good sustain... harmonics... not get muddy with drop tune rhythm shreds.

Cool... never played one. Heard they can spit on some nasty crunch. What kind of cab are you using? I normally go the avatar route. Maybe a contemporary 2 12 cab with v30's?

yep i think an avatar 2 v30's would be pretty damn good

they do spit out some mother....in nasty crunch + they are really amazing for soloing, and at low volumes ENGL are known to sound really good

im usin a homemade cab with 2 v30's and another homemade cab with a single eminence 15'' when I play my seven for the extra bass punch

You running those two cabs in stereo? How do you have that rigged? What kind of eminence 15? Sounds ....ing awesome. It will handle all the deep lows and not get muddy? Oh... do you have any video or sound clips of this rig? Danny... one more. Using a boost?

Randall V2 / T2

Does everything the 5150 will do, tighter, better clean channel, and the hybrid power section allows you to get to bedroom levels and still have to amp sound its best and then turn it up to ear bleeding levels when you need it without worrying about headroom.

Really is the best of both worlds.

Death grind at bedroom and band volume ?
You want this :

you can get one used cheap, even as a head and cab
Thick, hatefull, over the top distortion and is SS so no worry about tubes.

When are they releasing the ENGL Gigmaster 30 head?

Because I recommend that, assuming it sounds as killer as its 15 watt counterpart.

This man know's what he's talking about.

Want insane death metal tone? VH140C. Good enough for Suffocation (before they switched to ENGLs)

i had an old crate... cant remember the model. the amp looked identical from the back to the front... same knobs and pots. damn i wish i remembered the model number. i know the pots were shit. clean was pretty good and the distortion was decent. the cab was garbage. here's a video of me playing around with a distortion pedal on this amp.

That's not the Axe-FX. That's ReValver. Google it. Definately a strong possiblity.

Crate made a clone of the VH140C. Blue Voodoo, I think. I know what the hell it is, but I can't seem to remember exactly what it was called.

Nah it's Revalver. I'm saying why invest money in an amp when you have a computer and speakers - get yourself a VST program, that way you can play it, practice with it, record with it etc.
