      Sorry it took so long to respond. My favorite kinda tone is a cross between Mastodon/Tool/The Melvins...and the Swamp Thangs give me clarity with sound reproduction since my distortion comes from my preamp section. I'm using a Carvin TS-100 for a power section and I don't need any distortion for my power tubes so I prefer the Swamp Thangs, they work well with my rig. And they can take the 100watts the TS-100 dishes out.

      Most people here will tell you to go with Vintage 30s or Greenbacks - something like that. I'm afraid you'll have to try them out...Try as many as you can, got a Guitar Center nearby?

      By the way, what's in your rig?

      hey, u said on my 212 unloaded thread u have a abc cab with swamp thangs?...

      im still deciding on the speakers and im thinkin about swamp thangs, are they any good for real death metal brutal tone?

      im also looking at texas heats, wgs veterans, & wgs reapers...so if u have any recomendations for me it would help. keep in mind im looking for a tech brutal death tone...like necrophagist, cephalic carnage tone if uve heard of them

      thx....

      p.s i hope u see this soon, i couldnt figure out how to private message

    Signature

    Why? Because I want my distortion to be like "the perfect woman"...Unique, versatile, thick (with lots of low-end, balanced high-end) and classy enough to make your knees buckle in it's presence and pretty much an all around jizz-in-the-pants to be around.
