The number of knobs and buttons seem impressive, there are Ralite quickly resumed his. having the EQ makes spares rglages simple, no need to seek a compromise between the channels. EQ is not too prcise or not enough, you move Lorqui a knob means a diffrence, but it is not standard (either the Marshall or the Mesa).
Like other Engl amps, you plug and rings. Ds we touch a knob, the sound is good trs. The manual is almost useless, it serves for the positions of the switches for MIDI (if pdalier has a power supply externally or not), and for the selection of the Earth.

There is just the right thing.


I use this amp with an Ibanez NDM1 and Ibanez RG 2550.

Channel 1:
the clean sound is beautiful, clean and prcis. I cost of the clean Mesa, and I will have a small preferences for clean Mesa. we can push this up a channel distortion of approaching channel 3 (I'm a little thought to the principle of that VHT CL100 2CH indented, short)

Channel 2:
The crunch is good too, I used mainly for the AC / DC, Deep Purple, Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Channel 3:
heavy distortion for modern pieces plutt, whether Bourin or PrEP.

Channel 4:
Channel 3 just over compress many personnent use it for solos.


I use it for about 3 months.
This amp is really versatile for those who Engl apprcie the grain and do not want to locked into a particular style, this amp is perfect.
for inconvnients, personally, I have not found it yet.
I pass a marshall 30DFX the invader (which not justify Previous sentence), I sold my ME-50, I use no effects, and I do not feel the 'helpful prvois to buy rack delay and reverb.
3 years ago I wanted to buy a Randall RG 50 TC, arriving at the store, I test the RG 50 and a Peavey ValveKing, I really t's, the seller about me try a marshall JCM combo (I can not remember the exact reference), Du also gave much to the rhythm, but the acute lack of something. I put my guitar and he said you're on you do not want Engl Screamer combo test, I told him no, I was tired of being the, he told me about the fireball, I ' I emerged my guitar (my first one who wanted cost is given by). AND OUAAAAAAAAAH. several months later I have the powerball test being given that the fire was a common gain, no noise gate, it was not quite complete I found.
When I got to buy the powerball, it not in silent state, and SURPRISE, there was the invader150. I left the store empty handed because 150W is too much for me and I did not want to invest in a 600 cabinet (he offered me an Engl 212 "). Christmas and I took the invader with 100 a baffle harley benton 412 "in V30.

Refre if I had the choice, I will not come. With the time I devoted to economy and the search for ideal amp, I am proud of the result.

PS: Note perfect reflection of this amp APRS me, even if perfection does not exist, I found that I was looking for in the perfect sound.
