I'm probably going to get flamed for this, but I have been researching a new amp to get for the past two weeks and I think I have found "the one". I started off wanted a Peavey 6505+ for its distortion but heard it's cleans very so-so at best. Then was put onto a few other combo amps which did cleans/distortion 'OK', then I saw a comparison of the Savage vs a Mesa Dual Rect and was blown away, so I'm sold on the ENGL Savage heard. Do they do good cleans though? It's a 4 channel with a 3 band EQ per channel so an EQ pedal won't be necessary but I'm just curious as to how good the cleans can get. I mainly play Metallica, Megadeth, Guns N' Roses, BVMV but I'm not looking to totally emulate their tones, I want to record my own stuff at a later date. Will this amp be versatile enough to cover those tones though?

Also, what would be a good cab to match this? It's a 120W head, so I'm guessing I would need a cab of higher then 120W output? Can this still be played in a bedroom setting? Thanks heaps in advance!!
just thought i would throw this out there, at one point i was looking at the savage, and came accross two amps i liked a lot better, even though they weren't as flexibe, the Diamond Nitrox, and the Splawn Nitro. i bought the Nitro, it really is a killer amp, and has exceeded every expectation in every way. i got the Nitro used for $1300 shipped on the bay, talked the guy down a hundred.
i think engl has decent cleans it just depends what type of sound you want. Do you want a 6L6 sound or a EL84 sound. also most amps in the price range of the engl or 6505 or nitrox are gonna have good or decent clean tones. it is just all preference. I like the clean tones of mesa's over 6505's but most of the time if you buy a 6505 you are buying it for the distortion.

From what I've heard, the savage has pretty darn good cleans, about on par with the powerball, which is about on par with the Mesa mark V or dual rec

thanks for making an old dude feel like his advice is actually taken into consideration
Savage has very good cleans when you consider how high gain it is, its a very good well thought out and versatile amp.
