I agree with Niner. Any Z with a somewhat gainy pedal through a big cab will do. I've played my Carmen Ghia through a 412 Marshall cab at a rehearsal space with a Keeley Baked TS-9 and it was pretty heavy. Not necesarrilly a Soldano super-satured tone (which I don't really care for because the tone seems SO buried to me) but a pretty kick-arse GNR/Living Colour and even shades of TOOL kinda Mesa/Marshall tone. I imagine any of the higher wattage Z's through a 412 or Z-best with the right pedal would really kill. Oh yeah, it helps if your using a Les Paul.

Well that tears it, I'll definitely try plugging my Boss Metal Zone into my Maz 18 NR and 4x12 the next time I practice and report my findings. Based on what I've heard so far (so far being only once, mind you), I'm thinking it'll rip! It's a very "stable" platform with plenty of clarity, bass and punch, so I'm thinking it'll take whatever ungodly pedal I plug into it!
Maz 18 NR Head Fenders, Reverends, Carvins, etc. Too much to mention...
Z's will do heavy with the right cab & pedals. G12T-75s and an Xotic BB+ would help.
I'd look more to an EL34 or 6L6-based amp - EL84s just don't have quite the same low end punch
I also think the tone stack on Z's is set up quite a bit different than Mesa's, etc. The Z's don't really dial up that percussive low end that you sort of need for the metal sound - that's where a pedal with a good low tone control (like BB+) helps.
kdridnour: Update! I got a Shugaung Rectifier in my Plus now and my Plus sounds great!

GuitarZ: Thank You Z-Talk! I blew the dust off of my Signa Drive to plug in and was scratching my head on my old settings. I finally thought to do a search here and found a Z-Talk thread from 2011 with my settings. Nice!

GuitarZ: The Mrs jumped into action to find me a cancellation & called multiple spots. One said they had one now if the person didn't show up. She said GO! Went & got the shot. Called the Mrs. She says Where are you At? Went to the wrong one. Guess I don't listen.
