I like my X100b, but if you're just giving them away here I'll take the Roadking A Mark 5 would be nice, though...

Re: which amp head you 'll choose?

Low Distortion? Do you mean very clean?
If you're talking about low frequency distortion, the key to a proper sounding seven string baritone is not having too much distortion down low.

If I were looking for a head, besides the Herbert and Road King, I'd also check out these: Hughes&Kettner TriAmp Mk.II
Koch Powertone II 6550 120W.
Marshall JVM410H.
VHT G-100-UL Pittbull Ultra-Lead.
Rivera K120TRE Knucklehead 120W.

There is also a Hughes & Kettner specifically designed for downtuned seven string stuff: the Warp X.

Re: which amp head you 'll choose?

I'll tell ya...I have the Mesa Boogie Single Rectifier through a Marshall JCM800 1960 cab ( SOLO 50- first series 'original owner' ) fed with some delay, chorus and a few other effects on the side.
