Hello Everyone, 

I've been lurking along here reading a lot of posts and lessons and tabs , and its great to have a community to go to for help in case of question.

Thanks to everyone for all your contribution and replies and opinions.

So now to the question, 

I Sold my Bass breaker 15, after having a lot of FX loop hum, and hiss and shitty noises ( tried three amps), i am up to buy a new one, and i am stuck deciding between these 2

Engl Rockmaster 20 (777&euro
https://www.thomann.de/de/engl_rockmaster_head.htm?ref=search_prv_7


Budda Superdrive V20 (849&euro
https://www.musicstore.de/de_DE/EUR/Budda-Superdrive-Series-V20-Head/art-GIT0042305-000
can't find many reviews or videos

Let me know what you would choose, and what i should choose based on my music Interest below

I play in a Rock band ( Classic, Hard, Soft, Love rock ( for my babe)) and a little bit of Metal. So i need cleans, nice distorted and awesome lead tones. 
Led Zeppelin, Alter bridge, Deep purple, Pink Floyd, Iron maiden, .......... etc etc..

Use delay and reverb ( but if the amp has reverb then i use that) in the Fx loop so a nice clean noiseless Fx loop would be great ( not like the Bass breaker)


So all suggestions are welcome.. 

Cheers

This is really the wrong forum for this dude, so I'm going to move it to the right place: Guitar Gear& Accessories.  The techniques forum is really about the physical technique of playing the instrument.

kaputme realistically, I have no idea.  I haven't played with either of them, and my familiarity with both companies in general is pretty minimal.  I'd be more inclined to go with the Budda at that price, but like I say, that's not based on very much.

You're much better off waiting for someone with more experience to comment than listening to me about this.

i haven't tried either, but the engl is a hybrid as far as i'm aware.

also i really don't much like musicstore. i refuse to buy from them again. thomann's not perfect, but it's miles better than music store, at least in my experience.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Could you enlighten me more.. Does it mean it has a solid-state part in it? Like the H&K tubemeisters??

yep exactly- or the blackstar HT series. i haven't seen a schematic of the engl, but there are a lot of these hybrid amps around these days which (IMO) are sort of masquerading as all-tube when they have solid state parts in the signal path (which is cheaper). One big giveaway is too few preamp tubes... that can be an oversimplification, since it depends a lot on the circuit, but if I see a push-pull amp (which needs to use a tube for the phase inverter) with only one or two preamp tubes, I'm going to assume it's a hybrid until proven otherwise.

I played the Budda SD 18 a few years back and it's a legit killer amp. I wouldn't doubt at that price.

Dave_Mc I thought the HT series were also part SS ( Hybrid)


Oh yeah they are, that's what I meant. Sorry for being confusing, lol.
