Ok so one guy offered me a used engl invader 150 head at 2145 USD. Im not so sure if its a good deal. However, it is cheaper than buying online as i live in asia so if i ship a new invader it will cost me 3000 USD plus shipping tax gst....I actually wanted to buy engls long time ago (The powerball but recently i researched on this amp and generally there were very negative things to be said but i dont know who to believe because i cant try it out myself)when usd rates were cheap but can you give me advice whether i should spend the money on other brands with similar price? I also saw a used diezel einstein at the shop so im comparing between the two although i didnt find out the price..

P.s. Im a bedroom guitarist so is 150 watts an issue? i want to get a good sound at low volumes? I dont really care about my neighbours but i want to get the best out of this amp.Also, can anyone recommend a cabinet if i buy this?

ENGLs get pretty good sound at low volumes...but I don't like the Invader 150. The 100 is better. The Diezel einstein would be better imo.

As for a cab...can't go wrong with a Mesa 4x12 or an ENGL pro 4x12.

*edit*

a 2x12 would do too if you don't crank the amp.

Its a decent used price for the US I guess. Have you even played it?

^Why? He's asking if a deal is worth it, not what amp he should get right?


For those reasons - I put the link in. Just trying to help, not be a dick

I'd go for an SE over the Invader. They can be found at a similar price range to that and it's a much safer bet that you'll like the SE than you'll like the Invader.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
