Engl is a company that excels at making those over compressed metal voicing amp for straight ahead metal tuning and drop tunings. This amp is an amp that makes a Marshall look like child's play. I am not this kin of a metal guy but these amps are very cool. They have a great voicing and tone that is unmatched by any other company out there.

However, compared to the Special edition amps this one caters more towards a classic British style amp. It does has four channels including a clean, crunch, rhythm, and lead. he voicing is more towards the general rock scene rather than the ultra metal scene. You get more coverage with this amp in my opinion than some of the uber high metal gainers.


4 channels. four 3-stage EQs incl. logarithmic treble curve, Bright switch for Channels 1 and 2, separate Gain and Volume controls for each channel, Hi / Lo Gain switch, Noise Gate with threshold adjust, 2 parallel FX loops, 4 x ECC 83 / 12 AX 7 preamp tubes. Tuner out activated via standby switch.

Dimensions & Weight:

I am really liking to the tone of this amp. You get a solid clean tone the works for sparkling cleans all the way up to blues based tones. The crunch channel is good AC/Dc type tones and basically any kind of 70p's rock tones. This is a great channel for covers as well since it has a general crunch tone that works well with effects such as delays and choruses. If you player a lot of covers or just play a more mainstream rock then this channel will be right up your ally. The next channel is the rhythm channel and this is a nice high gain crunch channel. This can cover a lot of ground including 80's hard rock and metal all the way up to today's more modern type tones. The finally channel is the lead channel which more voiced towards lead playing and sols. This channels has a nigher upper mid section so the toes cut through the mix a lot better.


You can find these amps new right at around $2999, which may a bit high for most people but this is more towards professional touring artists and musicians who know what they want. This is a great all around amps for a lot of styles of music. I would recommend this amp to any one who needs a good workhorse amp that gets a great all around tone for basically any kind of music.
