I wouldn't reccomend a low wattage tube head for metal. Go for solid state.

No, it can't - if you pour a litre of water into a 400 litre bucket do you suddenly have 400 litres of water? No, you still have 1 litre.

TS, Hultan is right...good metal tones come from multiple preamp gain stages, power tube distortion and lots of volume. If you want metal tones at low volumes you're much better off going the SS or modelling route.

Or maybe a 5 watt tube head with good preamp gain and a nice distortion/OD pedal.

But the Seagull gives better advice than i do, listen to him.

How loud (vs solid state wattage) is 5 watts of tube anyway? (Cranked to full)

Roland cube would work best in this case. Small tube amps generally dont work great for metal. Though I've heard decent things about the Ibanez Valbee.

Try the Randall RX series. I have the 35 dm. It's only like 250 bucks. It hates OD/Distortion pedals, but with the gain cranked, there is really no need for them. It has some nice reverb effects, chorus, flanger, 2 different delays and chorus+reverb effects. It sounds nice at lower volumes and when the wifes not around, I can crank it loud enough to shake the walls. The clean channel isn't too bad either, but 99.999% of the time I play the gain channel so the cleans were not really a factor in my decision to get it.

I checked out the black hearts too before I bought it, but I just decided that there was no reason to buy a head + cab just for home use and went with the combo.

What's reasonable? You get what you pay for.

with some pedals you can get a very good metal tone from a VJ. your gonna need a couple pedals so your going to need to budget that in.
