« Great value for this amp »

Published on 08/11/11 at 13:23
Engl amplifiers make some of the best metal amplifiers in the business. The really excel a creating an amplifier that meets the most demanding tones for metal players. This is a 50 W three channel amp that has a master volume. This is sort of a single channel amplifier with a crunch and lead push button and also the cleaning in lead push button this gives you a wealth of more versatility within this 50 W amplifier. You have a crunch volume and a lead volume and also the master volume in this two channel amplifier but the cleaning lead push button give you even more versatility from this amp.

This amp has 6l6 power tubes and the power section as well as a plethora of 12ax7 preamp tubes. Engl amplifiers definitely have their own voicing structure. If you have a great Tony can be very versatile but they have a distinct German hygiene sound to them. It's not a good sound. It's not a bad sound is just a very unique sound that makes them special.

SOUNDS


I review like the tone of the small 50 W amplifier. Have a great versatility even using the shared EQ section. The cleaning lead push buttons give you a lot more total range to your last reply. This amp uses the highest quality components and workmanship that is available to amplifiers today. I think you can really hear the total difference in this amp versus some other amps that don't carry the same type of workmanship and strict quality control when building the amplifier's.

This amp is a very inexpensive but the tone is extremely huge. I like this amp with a good for 12 cabinet speaker. This is a very small head which also sits on a 2 x 12 speaker cabinet but to get this thing really cooking I believe you needed for 12 speaker cabinet. You can add in some delay in some course effect to this amp and get a solid room feeling metal toe.


OVERALL OPINION

The new price for these amps coming in at around $1000. As an exceptional price compared to many other hands within this price point. I highly recommend this into anyone looking for a good solid 50 W amp that excels at metal towns the same can get you just about any metal tone that you desire and even excels at the low drop to any guitar tones. Even if 50 W still has enough power to get you through most music gigs.
