God, I've been GASing for an ENGL Blackmore for ages.


ENGL is like a drug for me. An expensive one I can't afford like cocaine.

Cash isnt so much the issue (within reason), im willing to pay for something that fits what im looking for - problem is there is very few music shops around where i live, and none of them stock things like engl, framus, etc - i wont be gigging anytime soon though so dont need huge volume, i just want decent tone

Id love to get something like a Mesa MKIV but being from the UK not sure i can really warrant the ~1800 for one - what would the volume be like on things like the ENGL powerball - possible to go down to bedroom volumes without an attenuator?

And back on the topic of the screamer, if it cant handle the range of gain i mentioned, i assume with a decent OD it would be fine?

Sounds quite middy to me, certainly lacks the bottom end oomph of my old 4x12 but thats to be expected its also got this great Laney esqe twang about it. Very cool sounding and very unique.

you should be able to get a powerball down to bedroom volumes, but it might not start opening out and sounding its best until it gets louder. engls have among the nicest master volumes I've tried, but nothing really compensates for sheer volume i.e. driving your speakers and power tubes hard...

as to the screamer, you'd really need to try it. Opinion is kinda divided... some think it can do metal, some don't, some think it can as long as it's not your only style (i tend to go for the latter)... i can't say for sure it'd do what you want (nor could i say it for any amp, to be honest, but especially for something where opinion is divided).

I haven't tried the mark IV, but the mesas i have tried plain aren't worth the price in the UK. They go for around half the UK price in the US.

Thanks for the info, ill have to see if i can find some shops in the UK that stock ENGLs - does anyone know of any?

I expected it to not be the most amazing tone if its at bedroom volumes, but should still be very nice, and the option for volume is always there when needed

Seen as this is the ENGL thread, anyone here with a Powerball fancy commenting on its suitability for low volume playing?

they're in bingley which (i think) is in yorkshire. might not be next door, but should be in the same (rough) neck of the woods, anyway. presumably you could try one there, at very least.

The powerball is very good for low volume playing, I always play low volume for just practicing and when theirs someone around but when turned up it sounds even more amazing. Hope that helps.

okay guys
i was looking at the Orange Rockerv. 50 , but a lot of people are telling me to go with ENGL. and i'm liking the specs i see.
my question is.
i'm having a hard time deciding between the Screamer 50 and the Fireball 60w.

my band has an Alexisonfire type of sound.
which one would be better?

^ thanks. i'd be inclined to go for a screamer for the older one. newer one, not as sure. probably a screamer too.

i could be wrong, though. blackmore would be worth a look too, it's a similar price to the fireball. would do the newer one better than the screamer, i think.

I haven't really tried too much of Crisis (I have a screamer btw) but I think it should be able to do it. It can definitely do stuff like this could be anywhere in the world
