Preamp lamp.


The configuration could not be easier, you branches, t'allumes, you let heat 5 minutes and forward!

There are two manuals, one German and one in English, but honestly it is more of a flyer that reads the toilet, or while the animal warm.

What is stunning is that this amp has great turning knobs in every sense, the sound is still stunning, even with the settings to "bite me knot". Obviously the correct setting is even more stunning.


It should be quite to my style of music => Metal, funk, rock, blues etc. ...

I play an ESP Eclipse-mounted EMG.

The clean sound is superb, many people find it all too little expressive, I find myself slamming perfect, round, warm, and above it fully complies with the guitar. It's like making love with her baby, both soft and enchanting, but can hide a demon just waiting to escape.
The Bright added a little button next to tame the beast that carries with it a crystal clear sound, I almost forget that fit my emg active guitar.

The crunch is terrible to him when he saturates chouillat too can be a (not insurmountable playing with the knobs of the guitar and the gain of the preamp), but we mean well, ENGL'm not too much lace, and Register modern I must say that I am fulfilled.

And is the drama!

The soft lead is surly a wish, it restores the attack well, the sound is clear and right ca drool too perfect to play the small metal alone, and to do solos. It's clean!

Hi Lead is itself the hallmark of ENGL, the sound is huge thick, strikes ca, ca moves tripe, resonates ca. The knobs dedicated to the lower and upper Middle Middel is an indispensable asset in the pursuit of its straight but not too cold, I think it's one of the major forces préampli.Pour perfect solution it is necessary add a small équalo. The Mxr 10 bands that I have my sound turns into a kind of killing that is comparable to big names like the Hi Lead Mesa Boogie, VHT, and others. I got the sound I tried a modern distortion, which throws!

The grain is unique and can not appeal, in my case I am satisfied.


I use only a few hours and I'm about to c **! I am optimistic for the future when I master the beast!

I have tried many amps that are close to perfection but at a price unfortunately ... A 500 euros nine this preamp is cheap (relatively) full well screwed. The value for money is unbeatable in my opinion. In addition, finish is good, although sensitive knobs can build his own sound and the more it looks very solid.

Its only flaw is the specific optional footswitch, but I prefer a good footswitch optional and comes out a preamp sound of madness, rather than having a footwitch with a product not great.

At the moment I do it again this choice as the possibilities are enormous. Of course, if I could afford, I live on a Powerball typed or small Framus Cobra. But if its working properly his, he has the means to beat your little hearts of metalheads soaked in beer! https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_smile.gif
