Can it do the most br00talz of metuhlz?

How does it compare to the ENGL Powerball and Splawn Nitro?

1Splawn
2 Sig X
3 Powerball

however the splawn is more class A sounding. The sig X is cool lots of sound options, can get a soldano hot rod esque tone out of it, but its like a space rocket its so complicated. Its dark tight and warm (just like my ex girlfriend from Indonesia)

When I first played the Sig:X when it came out, I really wasn't all too impressed by it, but then I tried it again a few months later and it was a pretty cool amp. I still don't think it's as good as the Nitro I had though, but cool none-the-less.

even though now i can afford both sig:x and ultra lead, i never feel confident enough to go and try out at the store
sorry for hijacking but do you need to be a pro or a recording artist to deserve such expensive amps?

It's your money. You can do whatever the f*ck you want with it.

what does "class A sounding" mean? as opposed to A/B? is this the difference between "British" sound and "American"? (which i still can't tell the difference between)

thanks

So for Modern tight crisp and dark would the Powerball or the Sig x be the winner?

I've been looking at some of these, I just don't know if it's worth the extra money for the Sig, it's hard to find sound clips of the sig.

So the Fryette sig x beats the ENGL powerball out? Or are you guys just saying Freyette, because they switched the name?
#13
I've never had any hope of playing any of the three amps mentioned, but judging from reviews and my ears online, the Sig X is a winner. It's very versatile.

I don't think so, as long as you play it frequently and enjoy it!
Oh and I think the Fryette is absolutely amazing as are all Fryette models.
