Im not much of a metal guy, mainly a blues rock guy and currently use a vox ac15. Vox'es be vox'es it doesnt have much of the modern sound.

So i went to a shop and they were having a clearance sale of a Fireball 60 Watt, it was going for less than 1k USD, around 850-900 usd or so (im not american), should i go for it?

only problem i see is, i plan to use it at home in my apartment and 60 watters are quite big for my house

It's absolutely a metal head.
if you're more into cruchy sounds that amp is not a good choice, imo.

Owned a few Engls. The Fireball can easily calm down nicely. AC/DC crunch is certainly in there.

Even if you don't like it, just flip it. You'll get the money back.

Great cleans and killer metal tone. Had one for a year or two. Does fine at low volumes too.

-one of my favorite amps-

-I think the FB 100 is better, I don't know why, it just is, like mentioned above, great clean channel, wide variety of tones, never had a problem with mine or even know of quality control being an issue.

-the mid shift button is the key to this amp.

-the asking price is good, but not great

i have the crunchy base covered with my vox

its the metal im looking for

Well then I think it''s a good choice.

My experience with engl (a Powerball 2) has been really good and even if that sound is not my sound I still miss the head sometimes.

My band mate had a retro tube for a while an sounded good too.

Engl amps have good MV and are very usable at home.

aww crap the 60 doesnt have the mid shift, thats a bummer, it has a depth and a treble boost i think
