Hi folks!

I have been offered an engl screamer 50 head, the old one (not the black panel one) for my mim fender 68 reverse strat.
The head goes with a pedal channel selector for this amp...

Well i dont know what to do... Is this amp any good for hendrix, cream, led zepellin? I hate metal and it seems that 90% videos, info or pics are related to metal... JEEZ even the amp itself its pure metal (kinda ugly too, i always wanted a marshall plexi)

What do you think? Should i trade it? It will give me that hendrix tone? Its too loud for a house?
Thank you !

Cheers

Personally it wouldnt to hendrix as well as a marshall. But as rob said, Trade and sell it so you can come back to us with a budget/specs for an amp and we can advise you

Okay! Thanks for your help!

Have you ever had this amp? How it takes a fuzz face?

Can it do soft rock?

That ENGL is a highly gain beast but worth probably double the guitar.
Trade. Sell. And buy a decent Marshall.

You can probably get a decent soft rock tone out of it but it's not what it was designed for.
Fuzz face will probably work well but not as well as a fender, box or old Marshall.

Definitely take the trade. Probably won't do Hendrix well at all, but it's worth significantly more, so you can just trade it for something that DOES do Hendrix well

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