    Yeah, ended up finding it thanks. I like the features for sure at the price point. Video sounded good, will keep an eye out for more of them and on the radar.

    Just window shopping and narrowing it down. I have a few purposes.

    I plan to get the 20w JJ just because, I am keeping an eye on the Fortin Monolith or whatever 50w power amp box that is for my pedalboard rig and I also want a high watt high gain monster. Kemper is still on the top 5 as well.

    Diezel VH4, EVH 5150 III, Mesa Triple Rectifier can all do modern with huge low end.

    For a different suggestion...... A VHT / Freyette Deliverance D120.

    I had one for awhile, and it was the only amp I have owned that could stand with my Triple Recto in terms of huge low end. Only amp I also sold only because my ears couldn't take it in a bedroom, lol. Sledgehammer lows, cutting highs. They are much tighter and cutting than something like a 5150, but the 120W definitely sounds huge with 4 KT88 tubes.

    I'm shocked... SHOCKED no one has given you the right answer yet. Let me break it down....
    guitar ->HM2 (all knobs dimed) -> MT2(all knobs dimed) -> 100W Crate solid state head (all knobs dimed except mids) ->the cheapest 4x12 you can find (preferably beaten to hell, $100 or less and sold to you by a tweaker who needs meth $$). For additional brutalz add another shitty cab.

    /sarcasm

    ....sorrynotsorry

    ...it was the sound of local DM in the 90s....

    And the lack of access to decent guitars. Where I'm from, we were all forced to 'get by' on cheap copy strats with single coils.:hbang:

    5150/6505 can take an HM-2 as well...:mf666:

    Sneak peek from my upcoming LP. Standard 6505 red channel tone in the beginning, HM-2 engaged at :48. Try not to let your teeth fall out :lol:: https://soundcloud.com/kailm-1/ur-avgrunden-han-stiger-mix-2

    As cliche as it may be, nothing screams pure death metal tone to me more than rectos and EMGs.
