Is it possible?
attaining a nice tube distortion with pedals out of a 5-watter?
if so.....what pedals would be good?
not necessarily for Huge amounts of gain.......just a nice crunch like...lets say....... judas priest-esque?
(Its for a bugera V5 lol)

if you wanted metal why did you get a V5? its a light rock amp imo from the desciptions tonally. boost it alot in front with some kind of tube screamer and add more highs and lows, cut the mids..about all you can do.

Blackstar ht-5 eq and TS-9 would prolly get you there with style. Doubt there would be a better option in the 5w land.

Either an OD and an EQ, or perhaps a decent distortion pedal like a Blackstar HT-Dist/DistX/Dual.

Cutting the mids won't help, if anything boosting the low mids will be vital to add some chunk and thickness. If it has a solid state rectifier it might be tight enough, otherwise amp's voicing might just be too loose to really work for metal.

Well, you have to keep the volume somewhat low because you don't want too much powertube saturation (generally). Best bet is to keep it clean as possible and just use a distortion pedal, me thinks. Depending on how much gain, maybe a Hardwire TL-2, Barber Dirty Bomb; or Hardwire SC-2 for more classic metal stuff
