5 watts seems a little small, even for a tube amp. But then again, I don't know too much about this kind of thing. If it sounds good and can produce the kind of volume you're going to need for your small gigs, then more power to you.

I'd look at something different.
If you're playing metal and hard rock, try an Epiphone So-cal head. Not the best metal tone, but good hard rock tone if you ask me.
