Comments about Blackstar Ht Metal 5H 5W Tube Guitar Amp Head:
I was skeptical of trying this 5 watt head out, but it really does perform.
With the ISF and EQ, you can really dial in the sound you are looking for, it may take some time...but it is there.
How loud is this thing? I'm running it through my Mesa 2x12 cab and I rarely put it past halfway on the volume.
Perhaps the most shocking thing to me about this head is how well the low notes sound, especially when palm muting.
The clean channel isn't to be overlooked, it sounds amazing, and the Reverb does as well.
If you are into playing virtually any genre of Metal, I'd highly recommend this 5 watt amp. I'm actually thinking of selling my 50 watt EVH head because this thing surpassed my expectations.
