I've been out of town the last couple months, the first day I get back I picked up one of these.

The versatility of this amp is great, able to do nice cleans, blues, high gain, ect..with 3 power options 1/5/20. Perfect for bedroom or enough power to play with a group. Also sounds great boosted with an OD and also with a TS, I was playing through my Avatar 212. Very happy with this amp, will be looking at getting more ENGL's in the future for sure.

Once I move I'll be getting some recording gear and I can put up some vids or something if anyone is interested. I didn't want more stuff to pack up and move to the new house, but this deal was too good to pass up.

So the real question, is it loud and does it still sound like an Engl cranked up?

I love Engl amps. I have the Powerball v1, and contrary to popular belief, I think its fantastic. If I could afford to buy them all, I would. Great looking amp

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.

It's been waaay too long since we had an NAD in here That is a great-looking amp, and I expect it sounds fantastic too! The 'lunchbox' tube amp market is really growing, and there are so many great options. I had to take my Mark IV to a gig last night, and found myself wishing I had a Mini Rectifier or something instead

HNAD! Looking forward to some clips when you can get them up.

Thanks all, yeah this amp sounds great...

Yeah it's really loud... I cranked the lead volume and master at 4 on 20w mode and it was screaming, still sounds great.

Damn that is sexy. I'll take Engl gain over any Slo, JCM, Recto, 5150/6505 or anything else you throw at it.

Fireball is great too. I wouldn't mind getting the ENGL Extreme Aggression Fireball, Mille signature amp. Check it out if you haven't seen it.

I didn't realize he had a signature amp. I will check it out, the only thing I wish the Fireball had was more mids. Can imagine that getting lost in a mix (I have the silver fireball. Not the black one )

Though how does the Ironball compare to the Fireball?

It's kinda like a mini Fireball(minus the bright/depth switches), although the Ironball has a Gain Boost switch added to it.
