If i would want to play 5w head, for example crate blackheart or blackstar in rehearsals with drums, would it be loud enough for that ?

Probably.

Depends on how loud rehearsals with drums are for you.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard w/ SD Alnico Pro II's
Fender Aerodyne Telecaster & Stratocaster
Marshall JCM 800 4104 combo

Yeah not loud enough, unless they're a soft drummer.. Really soft. I mean it might be audible, but as another guy said it won't have the headroom needed.

Gibson guitars, Les Paul, ES-335, SG and more.
Dunlop Crybaby | Dunlop Volume | Boss TU-2 | Ibanez TS-9 | Maxon AD-999

I tried my Marshall CLass 5 in a rehearsal and my drummer is really loud, it was audible but like everyone else says, it doesn't have the headroom

It'll definitely be enough, but you won't get cleans. (Assuming the drummer isn't crazy).
Wait.

It's loud enough, end of story.

Unless your drummer wails on the cymbals. 5 watts is LOUD.

You could probably get some passable cleans by rolling back your volume knob...


Doesn't taht just have the same effect as rolling the gain down? Don't know why people suggest this.

Turning down the volume know reduces the signal output from the guitar, which in turn softens the push on the powertubes, reducing the softclipping, creating a cleaner tone.

5W won't be enough unless you really are prepared to compromise. Use efficient speakers get the drummer to tone down a little turn down the bass as this is the most power hungry area and boost the mids which make you sound louder than you really are and you just might get it to work for you.

If you try it with a tubey style amp, you'll see the difference.

But still... 5w is not gonna cut it unless your drummer hits like a four year old girl.

Ive used an epi valve jr with a marshall 4x12 cab and it was loud enough to keep up with a very loud drumset in a garage. the 4x12 definitely helped, and the volume wasnt maxed out otherwise it would have been too loud.

I use kldguitar Gt5HR with 12 inches speaker cabinet. It is enough.
