    i'm somewhat ashamed to admit that my best results of late have actually just been tweaking/altering bulb's tone to my own tastes.

    No boost; straight into amp.

    Gain: 5-6
    Low: 8
    Mid: 6
    High: 8

    Pres: 9
    Res: 10

    I find that cranking the EQ can really help beef up your sound when trying to cut down on gain.. but thats just me.

    This amp doesn't get satchurated/compressed like other high gain amps. It keeps getting louder as you turn it up. Like an old school Marshall you want to hit the power section hard causing the power tubes to start to distort as well. It won't do Meshuggah, but it'll do most everything right up to it. It's kinda like a cross between a Marshall and a Mark IV. Marshall tone with the gain and projection/cut of the Mark. And has a massive low end. When set right and with the right tubes in it, it doesn't sound Vintage at all. My all time favorite amp.

    If anyone has a Crate Gx130head, such as myself---please post any settings that give you as close to Cannibal Corpse as you have found. Also if you have the Ampeg Vh140c---!
    So long as the Gain is up high, almost all settings seem to be Death Metal---!
    But perhaps someone has some strange settings that work in a most defenitive manner!
    I will be getting my 4x12 cab soon, which should improve things a lot.

    Clean [boost off, open, bloom, 100w] *Depending on what I'm playing, I mess w/ the voicing switch*
    Volume - preference
    Treble - 7
    Middle - 3
    Bass - 6
    Presence - 7
    Depth - 6

    Rhythm [boost on, wood, burn, more, 100w]
    Gain I - 7
    Gain II - 5
    Volume - preference
    Treble - 6
    Middle - 3
    Bass - 7
    Depth - 7

    Lead [boost on, wood, blow, more, 100w]
    Gain I - 6
    Gain II - 6
    Volume - preference

    If I used my rack EQ, I'd probably boost the mids on the amp a little higher and scoop/scult the mids a touch on the rack EQ.

    Peavey 6505 death metal tone.
    Running through orange 4x12 (Vintage 30's) with modded boss sd-1 and boss ns-2 up front.
    Numbers are actual numbers, not o'clocks.

    Pre Gain - 7.5
    Low- 7
    Mids-7
    Highs-5.5 or 6 (Volume dependent)
    Resonance-6
    Presence- 7

    Obviously the louder the better. My cleans sound quite nice too.
    SD-1 is set-- level-full, tone-zero to 1/4, gain- zero

    Make sure to have a really tight gate for the start-stop and run it through a tubescreamer with the following settings:

    I typically run the noise gate built into the amp at 3 o'clock
