« 6L6 goodness  »

Publié le 07/26/11 à 22:38
This is the height of German engineering. Engl is a company that excels as making those over compressed metal voicing amp for straight ahead metal tuning and drop tunings. This amp is a metal guitar players dream amp. This amp will blown down doors and bust through walls. This is a three channel amp with a clean, crunch, and lead channel. Each channel is extremely usable and friendly to just about any music. However, this amp's voicing is tailored to a metal players amp. What that means is the voicing serves towards the metal style rather than a British style amp.

This amp is the same amp as the E670 El34 version but with a different power tube section. You get 6L6 powers tubes which gives the amp a bit different feel and tone. You will get a blooming tone that is very top and bottom focused. You get a tighter lows end a crisper highs and cleans for a better headroom. You will get a slower crunch in the power tube section but it sounds great with the tighter lower end with this amp.

SOUNDS

The tone is going to be more open and blomming. Your tone will have a tight low end and the overall tone will be more 3D and top and bottom focused. This amp says it has four channels but it really has 6 different voicings if you count the modern and classic modes on the the two lead channels. This amp can be a bit confusing upon first glance. It looks like something out of some space ship. It has a tone of features and a tone of control and all of them are lit up like a Christmas tree. There is so much going on with this amp that it makes it some what confusing. You eventually get the feel for it but it certainly is not a plug and play kind of amp. If you are used to looking at the front of a Marshall amp or a Peavey or even a Mesa Boogie aside form the Mark V, then looking at this might worry you how to dial it in. There is a system tot he madness but it can take a you a while to find the balance necessary to get a good tone out of this amp.

This amp does have a clean and crunch channel but the reason for getting this amp is not a clean and crunch channel you can get that out of many other amps. This is ultra high gain and saturation. This is an amp that is extremely saturated and extremely modern in its voicing. This sound like German metal amp which it is and you can not dial that out of any lead channel.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amp comes in right at around $4100. A bit of a price for a amp. This is an amp that someone who knows what they what is going to buy and probably and active touring musician. This amp costs little more that the EL34 version since 6L6 tubes are more expensive.
