I keep going back to this. I do want to stick with a head because I have a nice oversized 1 X 12 cab and a 412 cab to use it with. The VK has excellent cleans that have real warmth, depth, and the...

Guys, I appreciate all input -- let's all just relax a little. I've got a pretty extensive pedalboard so an amp that doesn't get that great of a drive tone on its own wouldn't necessarily be the end...

The DSL would probably be best for your needs -- it's got very much of an upper-mids classic high-gain Marshall sound. Perfect for thrash, especially with a boost pedal.
