(i like the tone)

its cheap and sounds pretty good to me.
what do you guys think?
anybody thats played it.
i know bugera is very problematic but for 150 bucks its not bad at all.
question is......could it do metal?
if not what od or Pedal would get it into heavy metal territories?
thanks.

5 watt tube amps with an 8inch speaker won't do metal very well. Not to my liking anyways but an overdrive and highoutput pickups might get close enough. However you'll get power amp distortion easily with 5 watss which isn't good for metal.

I have one, the thing won't do Metal worth a damn, though it does give a nice Cream tone, maybe a bit of Zepplin. It takes pedals alright, sounds a bit muddy if you don't have the gain almost at 0 though.

What kind of Metal are you looking to play? Thrash, Power, Doom, Death?

I would be willing to bet that it would do a sludge tone pretty well, but have never played one.

In that case buy one of these or a Fender Champ 600 and a Hardwire Metal Distortion and you should have a decent, portable Metal rig for the money.

Change speaker + tubes.
