so i guess you havent.

i've played just about every line 6 that's came out in the past 5 years... and not even the flagship stuff(vetta II, POD pro xt, HD147) doesnt hit anything even close to dead on. the spider II's are the bottom line shit, and well. i can hear it.

maybe you need to play some more amps.

I wouldn't. Its a terrible amp. I've heard better tones from a metal zone. So please PLEASE stop reccomending it. You'll save yourself much humiliation.

the blue voodoo is a great amp, but not so much for the brutal death metal. I mean, it could do it, but not as well as the shockwave. I'd suggest the shockwave, especially if you like Dying Fetus / Suffocation tone.
I use the effects loop on my shockwave with my EQ which makes the amp sound even better.

Maybe its just because this is the first head with an effects loop I've ever had that I've used : Some people complain about the fx loops on their amp being shitty, the Shockwave's effects loop is superb. At least I think so.

Well...Hobbits are rather short so if someone like lets say a wizard or an elf bumped into them accidentally I can't see it being too hard to get it stuck in there.

I picked up a 5150 mark2 a fewyears back, second hand for 400. Justthe head though, then worked a bit more and part exchanged shit for a cab

www.loot.com and www.adtrader.co.uk seem to frequently have them. Although everytime I've bought stuff from those websites, I've always ended up in shitholes with suspicions about the products...

Check out this site!! www.rocksolidamps.com
They have all kinds of sound samples that you can hear on the sound byte page. Alot of them are death metal riffs and stuff. And some of the drum tracks they have are by Derek Roddy. They have ENGL heads and a few others. Some of these heads sound badass!!! I personally like the way the ENGL Fireball head sounds and the Powerball head also.
