The Blackstar HTMETAL5H 5W head is a tube-driven metal monster that lets you produce high-gain madness through your favorite cab without drawing the wrath of your neighbors. It can handle tones from classic British heavy metal to modern U.S. scooped high gain, and all sonic places in between.
It features two foot-switchable channels: Clean and Overdrive, and presents shared controls for Reverb, Treble, Mids, Bass and ISP - Blackstar's patented Infinite Shape Feature that gives infinite adjustment over your tone characteristics. The Overdrive channel has independent Volume and Gain controls; and the Clean channel has independent Tone and Volume knobs.
The MTMETAL5H also features rugged construction, true tube power through one ECC83 and one 12BH7, included footswitch, stereo digital reverb, speaker emulated output with 1x12" and 4x12" voicings and an FX loop with level switch. It's a fully equipped shred machine that you can play without incurring public-nuisance charges.

Comments about Blackstar HT Metal Series HTMETAL5H 5W Tube Guitar Head w/Reverb:
I was skeptical of trying this 5 watt head out, but it really does perform.
With the ISF and EQ, you can really dial in the sound you are looking for, it may take some time...but it is there.
How loud is this thing? I'm running it through my Mesa 2x12 cab and I rarely put it past halfway on the volume.
Perhaps the most shocking thing to me about this head is how well the low notes sound, especially when palm muting.
The clean channel isn't to be overlooked, it sounds amazing, and the Reverb does as well.
If you are into playing virtually any genre of Metal, I'd highly recommend this 5 watt amp. I'm actually thinking of selling my 50 watt EVH head because this thing surpassed my expectations.
