So, I can pick up a Mesa Nomad 100 Head for $650 locally. I want to use it for metal, is this a good idea? I don't want to drive there to try it out (unless I'm for sure gonna buy it) cuz it's a longgggg drive and I don't have the gas money right now. It's either that, or a Blackstar HT100 head. Let me know what y'all think!

Might be cool. You could make that back by reselling it if you don't like it.

I haven't tried a 100 in a while, but based off the 45 I had a while back, the HT100 is the better choice for metal. Not to say the Nomad can't do metal, it's just looser than I'd like it to be for a modern metal tone. The HT100 is much tighter, but definitely more artificial sounding.

That being said, your 5150 is much better than either of those amps.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

I just want a diverse tonal pallet
