I'm moving to a new place this month, and I will finally have a basement area where I can jam to my heart's content without bugging the neighbors. I've already played around with my Egnater Rebel 20 in the new place, which has taught me that even 20 watts is more than I require, at least for playing at home. I'm considering getting a five watt head or combo to run through my Egnater Rebel cabinet for jamming at home. I've already got a couple of other five watters that I really like (Gretsch Electromatic and Fender Vibro Champ XD), but I'm particularly interested in a non-master volume amp with a good crunch when cranked. As I said, this would primarily be an amp that I would crank at home while my wife is away, although a good clean tone at lower volumes would be a plus. The three amps I am considering are the VHT Special 6, the Blackheart Little Giant, and the Marshall Class 5. I tried the VHT at Andy's Guitars in Tallahassee a few months back and I really liked the clean tone at low volumes, although I was not able to try out the overdrive. I also tried out the Class 5, but I was not in a position to crank it up; it's low volume tones did not impress me. The Blackheart is an unknown for me, but others have spoken highly of it. Aside from the Class 5, I probably won't have a chance to play any of these again before purchasing. Based on my limited experiences and online reviews, I am leaning towards the VHT. It seems to sound great at almost any volume level, and appears to be capable of nice overdrive tones at volumes that won't annoy my wife and son. I'd like to know what the forum members think about these amps. In particular, I'm curious about the variety of tones each amp is capable of, or whether a particular amp is just a one trick pony (not necessarily a bad thing), and how loud each amp can get in comparison to the others. I'm also open to suggestions regarding other amps that might fit my needs. In terms of price, I'd rather not go above the cost of the Class 5 right now (~$399). Thanks!
