Are you sure it's all 6 strings being strummed while palm muted? I listen to/play a lot of black metal and death metal and haven't heard much of that, while palm muted, anyway.

There's really been two of them in my lineup.

I spent my first 4 years of playing through extremely crappy, 8-inch-speaker, solid state practice amps (Crate, Fender, etc. -- they all sounded the...

AFAIK V-30s are all 60-watt. Anyhow, if I'm wrong, you'd be able to specify that with Avatar when you order it.

As for 412 vs. 212, that's entirely preference. But here are some differences:

Are you talking about the 120 watt head or the 112 combo? $700 for a brand new 120 watt head would be a great deal. Even used, that's not a bad deal.
