I own it. And you asked for settings in the first post of thread, and you can quite clearly see them in the pic.
I play deathmetal, metalcore etc. and this amp is definitely brutal enough.

I <3 ENGL!

My Screamer 50 made me play guitar even more than I used to. It does most anything I throw at it.

Luckyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

How do you like it (I know you said you love it but more in depth)?

What footswitch do you have?

I bought the Z-5 and I love it, the amp just wouldnt be the same without it.

As if you would buy a footswitch. I made my own for about $40 bucks. It's pretty much two Z-4s combined, so thats a saving of about $350 Aus

I got mine for 40% off during a sale. Plus it looks damn sexy next to the amp. I figured I could have built one but I would much rather spend a little money and have a really nice foot switch that is virtually indestructible and is designed specifically for their amps, from a function and design point of view.

Hey all!

I'm thinking of going with an Engl as my next amp (seeing as I can't afford Mesa.. ) and was wondering which you would recommend for more Hardcore/Metalcore kind of stuff. Price range is around $1500 USD. (This would include a cabinet if the recommended amp is a head!) Also, which cabinet would you recommend (preferably a 2x12, don't really need a 4x12. Heard good things of Vader?)

More in depth description of what I play would be : As I Lay Dying, It Dies Today, Before Their Eyes, Haste the Day etc..

Thanks!

I don't have an engl, but just so you know, they raised their prices, so you may want to edit in the newer ones into the first post.

I really dug the Blackmore I had, pretty killer amp. Even handled my 7 string ok, which some of the more versatile amps don't seem to handle as well in the lowend. I'm DYING to try a Savage, I think I would really like that beast from the clips, friends that own one, and previously owning the Blackmore.

US pricing at www.rocksolidamps.com - better also make clear that in the US you have a lot of other options at similar or even cheaper prices. whereas in europe engl are pretty reasonably priced.

Other options? Do tell, dave. :P

I'm still thinking if ENGL's the way to go for me, and if so, it's between the richie blackmore head or the fireball head.

Has anyone tried both out?
