So I'm about to invest in a new amp (hopefully a half stack) and before I started looking from scratch I wanted to get an opinion on some of the better heads and cabs that you've played or heard. Budget doesn't really matter, just throw out a suggestion and I'll figure out if it's too much. I'm looking for a deep brutal sound, but can still be crisp. Something along the lines of Lamb of God, Dime, and Cannibal Corpse. Thanks.
Peavey 5150 or 6505. Either one of those should make you happy. Also, check out the Randall line. The have some wicked valve amps, very brutal sounding.
