Why do you need one?

What are you using it for?

You could get something like the Bugera V5, with money left over to get a TS9 with it or a boutique distortion/overdrive pedal.
Gear:

Gibson 2005 Les Paul Standard
Fender Road Worn Strat w/ Noiseless pickups
Marshall JCM 2000 401C
Marshall Vintage Modern 2266

Well then how bout you go for just under 20 watt to expand your options?
BS HT5 if you only want five watts.

This

5watt cant keep up with a drumkit (I tried), and is still actually a bit loud for bedroom, Ht5 has to be turned to 3 or you will be heard all over the house. If neither are an issue the blackstar is a very decent amp and I hear good things about the bug V5

Either way.

you dont need to crank a Metal amp, you need pre amp gain and lots of it.

So you dont need to have 5 watts and you dont need 1200000 watts, but you need enough to give you that proper low end response and with enough headroom to actually play metal on.

I haved used a 120 watt, 100 watt, 50 watt and 5 watts, all in my room and for metal the 120 watt 6505 was still best for metal at "loud" bedroom volumes and again at lower bedroom volumes.

If you need silent, buy a POD.

+1 on what tom's saying
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
