On a whim, I acquired this amp for a 72 hour audition. By the end of the 2nd day, I was absolutely blown away by it. It has totally rocked the foundations of my amp "belief system"! Forget the misconception that Engl only does metal. Sitting right next to my Fuchs TDS, Suhr Badger, Dr. Maz 18, Allen Accomplice and collection of Jetter GSRs, Xotic AC/BB, Fulltone OCDs/Fulldrives(various editions) and MI Audio 6-knob Tube Zone, I am getting some of the most beautiful clean/crunch rhythm tones and low/high gain Dumble...yes, DUMBLE...style lead tones I have ever experienced in my life! Yes, it can do that modern high gain garbage (sorry, just an opinion), but punch some buttons and twist some knobs and, damn, what beautiful blues, blues-rock, "fusion" style blues and classic rock this thing can do! Been going back-n-forth between the collection all weekend and this thing is just a monster. And, the best part? No wait! I have some time off work in a couple weeks and plan to do some simple clips. Stay tuned. In the meantime, have any other non-metalheads out there checked this thing out?
