Yes, absolutely try them out before you mindlessly order one. They have a very distinctive sound. I have a Fireball myself, while I was at first looking for a Powerball as well. I liked the Fireball's sound better..

Seriously, try one out, I think it's a quite versatile amp, but; while you try one, make sure you try the Fireball and the Ritchie Blackmore Signature as well.
I do not want to have a signature anymore.

cheers, it does look like a great amp and is very versatile. its also a lot cheaper, even with a cab, than the two Mesas that i'm also looking at.

It sounds like garbage at low volumes. So turn it up!

Powerballs are very love hate. I personally don't mind them but I'd rather have an ENGL Savage or Blackmore.

Or the e530 + mesa poweramp I currently own...

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Totally agree with this. Been through a few Engl's including the SE. The Savage was the ONLY one worth owning/keeping. Best one of them all.

Yea man, check out some sound clips, your name is Shred.

Im assuming, for what your looking for the SAVAGE is the only way to go...

Can you pick me up one while you are at it??
