    and the Effects Rack Road Case Made by Angstrom.
    Makes life a whole lot Nicer!

    You bought that rig from rareguitar from Rhode Island didn't you. I saw a video preview of that rig when Mark Day from Sam Hill Band set it up. I was shocked to see rareguitar selling it so soon.

    Why, Yes it is!
    Fantastic Amp, out of all the Engls, it's one of my top picks.
    Has that signature Heavy Engl Tone, but has many Midrange Shaping
    Capabilities, cuts in a band Mix very well.

    I'm curious about the Steve Morse head. How many ENGL amps have you compared it to, and how did it compare?

    OK
    The Engl Amps have their own signature tone
    to them, you either like it or hate it.
    Engl caters to the more Modern Tone Era, IMO.
    I can only compare it to the Engl SE, Powerball and Blackmore
    for those are the other Engls I've spent some time with.

    The Morse Sig. is not as compressed as the SE,
    Doesn't have the Sag or muddiness of the Powerball,
    and has more gain and Midrange Variables than the Blackmore.
    None of the Engls can do a Marshall-esque Grind, if you know
    what I mean, but have their own Modern Bite to them.

    The Morse is the most balanced Engl for my Midrange tastes.
    It has an EL-34 Power Amp section that gives it a great
    unique bite. It has 3 Channels and each channel has many midrange shaping
    variations, Lo-Mid 1, Lo-Mid 2, High-Mid 1, High-Mid 2 Tone knobs, Lo-Mid 1/2
    button and High-Mid 1/2 button, a Presence and Depth Punch Knob, and a High gain and Tone button. (Aside from your regular EQ Knobs)
    So the sky is the limit for the Midrange Shaping capabilities, there are so may
    combinations to choose from, it gets overwhelming at times.

    I run the Morse in stereo with a CAA OD100SE+ and I pretty much cover the whole Midrange spectrum, cutting through the Mix with Authority.
    I like midrange voiced Amps and this one does it well with a Modern
    kick without the Sag and Muddiness.
    My favorite Amps to date have been:
    Elmwood Modena M90, Bogner XTC 101B
    Diezel Herbert, CAA OD100SE+
    and the Morse seems to take a few sweet things from each one of
    those amps and Blend it together. The End result is a Pretty cool Amp
    by Engl.
