Ok so many songs (mostly metal) use detuned six-strings sevenstrings or even eightstrings !
Now the matter, the are many bands (e.g. amon amarth) that dont show you they use detuning or sevenstrings.
There are also bands (e.g. vildhjarta) that not only it cant pass unoticable but also their tone become extremely interesting.
Especially when that kind of bands play the low string OPEN . Its speaks and says they play me open...
How can I achieve this kind of tone ? Amp ? Guitar ? Pickups ? Recommend me a starting point.

If you want more examples of the tone I am talking about just say me...

tuning is the place to start. open string will sound tone it's tuned to.

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.

Alright so it seems you're wanting that "djenty" tone as I like to call it, while not necessarily playing that style of music.

Downtuned guitars are a must. At least drop B or A. Maybe be able to swing that type of tone with drop C, Periphery does it, but those higher tuned songs have a different feel really.

A seven string in standard, drop A, or G# really helped with that open low string woofy "clank" sound. Pick attack is good, don't bitch pick.

As long as you have some sort of high gain amp, it's mainly going to come down to a boost or EQ pedal (in front of the amp, not in the fx loop) and how you use it. You want to cut the lowest bass frequencies a little (like 80-200hz), and give some punch in the upper midrange around 1 to 4k). This is just some generalizing and isn't completely necessary specific.

I can't recommend an amp and I don't know much about them anymore, I've been using various computer plugins like Bias and free VSTs.

But basically, a downtuned guitar into a boost/EQ pedal, into a high gain amp. And remember, you don't necessarily need super high gain. Just enough to make it purr.

Well what's your budget? Do you want a tube or solid state/modeling amp? The Peavey Vypyr gets a good rep, but I've never played it.

I played a Blackstar ID in guitar center a few weeks ago, and for the price it sounded immensely good for a cheaper solid state amp. Definitely could get similar tones with some tweaking.

A used Peavey 6505 1x12 is also a good option for a high quality tube amp. There's also a Micro version that's even cheaper, but you'd need a cab to go along with it.

Budget and location will help us to know what amps may be available for you, always consider buying used you will get more bang for your buck.

All products are available
As for budget I have 500$ to spend and I
would be pleased with a used amp in good
condition if thats the case with the budget.
Not any specification like tube , solid state ,
modeling .Just keep in mind that it will be used for LOW tunings and this djenty tone...

Sorry I forgot something...
I would highly appreciate if
the amps you recommend me
have a combo version too.
I dont know if I really need
a head yet.I dont do a lot gigs
so its a little bit useless.
Again if talking for a really good amp
without combo version (but REALLY good)
i am open in some small budget changes,
maybe a head too.
