# What kind of amplification (lamp, transistor ,...)?

Amp any lamp, 4xECC83 2 * 5881.

# What is the power delivered?

50W, but they have forgotten to count a few ...

# What connection?

An input jack, an effects loop, footswitch input and the account must be there!
Opportunities for the speaker outputs:
1 * 8 ohm
2 * 8ohm
1 * 16 ohm
2 * 16 ohm

# What are the settings, effects? ...

3 channels: clean crunch lead
We can no longer simple, but extremely effective!
a gain, eq (very efficient), a master and two additional volumes for crunch and lead channels.
A further adjustment is available behind the mix to assay the effects loop and the receiver (really a plus).

We have a common basic config at any amp, but we frankly wonder no more when we see how we can send heavy ...

PS I thank the other users have mentioned the problem of winning single that helped me find a solution using the equipment I already had. see below.

UTILIZATION

# The configuration is simple?

As aforesaid, there&#39;s really not enough here to get confused!

# Gets it easy to sound good?

Yes yes yes and Reo! It seems nevertheless important to say that the choice of speaker is very important for this amp, I first bought the head only to test it on different speakers and nothing to say, I&#3;m still remained in the V30 Celestion.
In addition to 195 € in the 2x12 V30 Thomann, that you ask for ...

# The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

If you want to improve your English, read the manual ...
To learn how to use the amp, just turn the knobs =).

SOUNDS

# Should your style of music?

Perfectly! I used to play death metal group, and at home to play absolutely any style! Contrary to what I&#39;ve read for the modern metal, it does, and wickedly! and no need to gain more than 11h in my case (warning, my guitar is active).

# With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?

It is important that I give some details.
First, I use a Dean Razorback 255 (EMG 81 & 85, a classic).
I use this amp with a Zoom G9.2tt; I use a mounting 4 jacks for connecting the Engl preamp in the effects loop of the pedal, which allows me to activate it or not, and therefore have a wide range of its trèèèèèèèèèèèès. It easily overcomes the problem of common gain, even if this problem is not really one for me because the gain is never pushed very high to me.

# What kind of sound you get and with what settings ("crystalline", "fat ",....)?

To get crystal clear sound with a guitar active should slightly reduce the volume of the guitar, and does not exceed 12 to gain clean channel, and then express yourself using the equalizer is very beautiful, very diverse, it really takes the fun on jazzy improvisations.
I get my sound to play in a group with the lead channel, gain at 11, 14h bass, mid and treble at about 10am (do not put too sharp with this amplifier to maintain the ears of the assembly ).
I do not use much the crunch channel, but why not in the future, it&#39;s always nice to have a popping sound less aggressive than the lead channel!

In short, I love this amp, a real slap in the first start, a second slap in the first repeat, I am really happy with my choice.


OVERALL OPINION

# For how long have you been using it?

I use it for 2 months now, I had the opportunity to offer his first concert and it disconnects, I do not regret having followed many tips about buying a 50W rather than a 100W, it&#39;s exploitable, repeat, in any case, in concert, and this is the Engl, quality is excellent!

# What thing do you like most/least about it?

What I like:

Sound
Price
Power
versatility

What I do not

Not easy to say that I dislike, because this amp is perfectly suited to my needs, I&#39;d be edited if defects come to mind.

# Did you try many other models before getting this one?

I tried a Peavey 5150, the one I tried was a real buzz box ...
I also tried a fireball (great, but not in my ways and too powerful in my opinion), I tested the ValveKing (peavey too), good amp, but I&#39;m not a fan of his.

# What is your opinion about the value for the price?

So then, what about ... € 733, 50W all-tube, completely usable in all circumstances, the speaker bought € 195 ... I think we are dealing with a very competitive product ... In my case is rare in music to be satisfied without having to pay the price ... Engl thank you!

# Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

Of course! And I do not feel ready to change amp it sooner!
