    I have a Peavey Ultra Plus head. I wouldn't really say it's the best for death metal. It's currently fried, but I plan on having it repaired so I can sell it off and get a 6505 or something afterwards.

    I have a Ultra 212 that I use for death and everything in between. It kicks major ass. After I get this Fireball, the Ultra 120 head will be next.

    Skip the Reavey cabinet. Transtube pretty much blows, but I remember Helmet was using them live back in like 97' or something. Sounded good then...

    In that price range, your best bet is a Peavey 6505, or a used 5150.

    +1 I highly recommend both of those amps, they sound amazing live and are a breeze to record. Definitely if you have the cash pick one of them up.

    I have been reading a lot about the Ampeg VH140C head for Death Metal. Anyone use one or have used on in the past for Death Metal?

    Wanna buy a fried one for $400 USD? Then you could just have it repaired.

    lol
