I am looking at getting a new amp soon. I have 3-500 to spend. I currently have a bh5h with a crate 112 cab. I like the cleans but I have to use my mt-2 to get it to the level I want it distortion wise. My guitar is a dean ms STD. The tone that I'm shooting for is close to the hangar 18 tone so I'd like the amp to distort that far on it's own. Really only want tubes. Thanks

Yeah, Bugera's are great. I'm pretty fond of the 6262's.

Maybe look into finding a used 5150/6505+ combo, or an XXX combo as well.

Thanks you guys are great. Anyone know anything about the class 5?

Yeah, not enough gain for what you're looking for. It's not a huge upgrade from your Blackheart (if any). Single channel, Class A tube amp.

The Class 5 is a non-master volume amp (meaning it doesn't have a gain knob, so it has to get loud to get gain) and it probably has even less gain than your Blackheart.

I'd recommend the Jet City Amps JCA20 or Egnater Tweaker, maybe with an overdrive pedal.

I'd also recommend the Jet City. They sound very nice. You will probably need a bit of a boost to go with it though. My only issue is that it's a one channel amp. You'd be looking at either the JCA20H (20 watt head) and a speaker cab, or the JCA2112RC which is a 1x12 combo.

+1. Scour craigs list and ebay. You'll find one of these eventually.

It's really down to preference - they're voiced quite differently. You can get the sound you want from either one though.

They didn't seem to go quite far enoough for me. I treid the ht-5 and I like it. Also liked a Mesa but it was a little over my range. Anything else to look at? Are there any ht-5 problems I should know?
