I personally wouldn't buy a marshall for death metal. I stick with the mesa boogie rectifier....They produce some serieus distortion

Hmm I think if the tunning is lower it also adds to the sound. But for my Marshal I usually take out all the Mids and put the Bass and Treble full up.
It gives a good crunchy sound.

I really want to get a Pevey 5150. I think it would make good death metal/grindcore amps.

why take out all the mids? I know some marshalls are fairly mid voiced but to cut them completely is kind of silly. Your leads must sound shit

I only do it for death metal/grindcore type stuff plus I usually use a wah with my solos to give them more of an ooomfff. But I put the mids half way when I do some old school thrash stuff.

I like to cut the mids on my amplifier EQ ( 5150 II --- mids at 1, bass at ten, Treble at 6-7 ) and use my EQ pedal to give me just enough mid to cut through the mix when I'm playing with others. This amplifier articulates this sound particularly well.

Don't worry about being associated with the Line 6 users who play Trapt and scoop the mids by scooping your own ... if you can play then you won't have that problem.

I play all sorts of metal and my current set up is this ...

Jackson Kelly w/ EMG 81/85
Earnie Ball strings (the ones w/the thicker lower strings)
Tuned 2.5 steps down
Marshall TSL 60 w/the cheap cab (had to cut some corner) from the MG series.

First off, tube amps are meant to be played loud. You can get cool old school death sound by dropping the presence and treble to around 5 - 6 and keep the bass full and the mids around 3 -4. Increasing the treble and presense makes it sound sharper. Usually as the volume goes up, bring the presense back a little. I can get the sounds I want from Metallica, to Nile to Bolt Thrower.

Any amp with enough gain can be used for death metal. It just depends on what sound you want. Listen to albums, find the tones you like the most, find out what they used to make those sounds, buy that stuff. And always remember that even a great amp is going to sound like ass through crap speakers. So if you are on a budget, I would say, get a cheap used 4x12 for around $150 or so, ditch the speakers, get some warehouse speakers, and buy a decent cheap amp.
