Depends on the amp. My 15 watt blues junior is incredibly loud, like I've never turned the master past 8-9 out of 12, with the volume at 4-5 . If you have the volume cranked and master up, probably like 5-6 out of 12 with a full band.

I don't know if a 5-watt could get over a full band, but it would be perfect for home practice. What would you be using the amp for?

5 watts in theory should be half as loud as fifty watts....

5 watts is loud enough for practice, too small to play any gig

I wouldn't say any gig, as I managed to play a pub gig with my VJ and a 2x12 cab.

It just depends on if you want to play clean at a gig

Im getting a crate palomino 15 watt, will that be loud enough to play over a band. We play wolfmother type stuff. And I am also gonna buy a Blackheart in the near future for home practice.

5 watts will easily fill a large, house-sized (meaning not like a concert hall-sized room) room.

15 watts is a bit larger- it'd probably fill a decent-sized pub/club or similar.

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.

Good choice with the Palomino. My son played his school auditorium with a full band with that amp, and it didn't even break a sweat. It's great for Wolfmother type stuff, too. He plays that all the time thru his Jekyll & Hyde pedal.

I think the Blackheart would be overkill, though. Why not just use the V16 for home practice, maybe use that extra money on some pedals?

ditto. I'd have thought a 15-watter with master volume would sound better at home-practice levels than a 5-watter without one.

5 watts is a nice amp. its perfect for a dorm room or a bedroom and you can record on it. Zeppelin recording Zep 1 on a 5 watt amp. But im not sure how'd it be live. probably never very good.

if you move a bit more air with it (i.e 4x12) then you can play 200 seat places with it at a push
