    EQ sharing between the two channels is a bad thing ... and then there are only two channels.

    There is an option MIDI, and is facing rear of my copy, the slots for MIDI are marked but without making ... I do not understand what brings russi this option may be just change the channel ...

    UTILIZATION

    Using super-simple ... what is striking is that all positions of the EQ provide a usable or so. The extreme rglages do not leave in the porridge infme, but are instead sometimes INTERESTED trs. The EQ is effective trs, with specific features: the low knob acts essentially zero-lead half way in, beyond one hears more of Difference, by its clear against continues to the effect. The mid is classic. The treble is trs spcial, it looks like it scans the frquences as and of its travel is an essential tool to find the sound. SETTING THE prsence the last acts, he, more like a traditional knob of treble.

    The various switches are effective, mid boost does not come in lead channel but only the clean channel. The bright is audible on both channels and a bit garish in lead (with my config). The lead boost is ... gnial

    The level of background noise is reasonable trs, it comes after no problem with a lightweight noise gate.

    I have no manual, but has no shortage Obviously

    A point on the change of lamps: it is necessary to open the bottom of the rack, and lift the panel toward the rear for Chapper foam blocks that snap the small lights ... very easy when you took the shot. Beware if the heat DGIG by the gear, it does not pretend ...

    SOUNDS

    The lead channel, first, is the most INTERESTED Well there's no wiggle is to play the big, the heavy! gain background, lead gain merits, an EQ that digs a little mid, Obviously it is the potato. Sound beautiful, nervous, mchant that rpond quarter of hair. Low punchent, the palm-mute is taping. More in the treble, while out of fawn trs prcise has does not bleed, everything is transcribed Fidler (breads too ...). To provide lments comparison, I had the hands up now voodu valve (not an ada mp1 raliste ...), (a little "dry"), a Hughes & access Kettner (a little "round") and the engl 620 is by far the best in his mtal ...

    EDIT: I now have a Triax, well, impossible to approach the sound of the Engl, for both the sharpness and clarity "cojones" of this little monster ... the sound is really diffrent Mesa, more dense, less prcis ... I almost regret my 620: o)

    The clean channel is it honnte trs. It is said that in any fawn, it's easy to have a clear right of a lamp pramp ... The engl inconvnient the EQ is shared, once you take the sound of death that kills, you do not want to compromise the clean ct ... But again, a TRS is the road well, with a multi-effects derrire is happiness.

    OVERALL OPINION

    In conclusion, an extremely simple pramp who keeps his promise, it's true, the large
