I hate you and I hope your amp catches on fire.

nice. is that the cab with the v30s? if so, that sounds like a pretty good deal, that'd set you back close to £1500 new.
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.

I just thought that would be semi-appropriate lol.

(if you must know, its the themetune for this thunderbirds-like puppet based kids show called Fireball XL5.. except played live by XTC - not the best recording though)
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Well i can safely say that this amplifier is most probably god scaled into a 60w head. it is epic.
i met the kind bloke today in bath and picked it up. my first impressions were "holy **** thats big" and "omg that thing is perrty" but as soon as i got home i plugged in and the feeling was just indescribable. it sounds epic. the tight low end rumble is insane and the soaring leads and sustains beat every other amp i have played. the crunch imo tops that of the jcm's and tsl's. the clean channel sounds fantastic it can be super bright and twangy or soulfull and fat. and the bright and depth switches are very usefull. i can safely say that it is not the most versatile piece of kit on the market. but it is perfect for what i play and wouldnt tradie it for anything else. the 4x12 v60 cab is a perfect match. i would have this over the vintage 30 / greenback cab because those speakers are quite dark voiced and dont quite go with the massive low end. the brighter v60 speakers match the head perfectly and the thing looks awesome and is built like a tank. the footswitch is a bit meh. the thing works, but it doesnt appear to change the channel on the amp. you can only hear the difference. to be honest i dont care if the light changes or not. as long as my switch actually changes the clean to overdrive, i am happy.
overall, i think my buy was well worth the ridiculously long journey and the 900 quid and i would recomend this amp to anybody considering it.

clips n pics are coming up asap.

ij have one too....but im going to chance my v60 and buy v30 for they sound much better in my opinion!!!
my gear:

guitar: Schecter c1 classic
amp: Engl fireball
box: Engl v30 4x12
effects: g-major
in future: ESP eclipse, PRS Custom 24...
#20
i think the v30 speakers are wayy to dark for a head with 8 gain stages!!! i honestly think that the v60s match it better. but if the v30's are your thing....
#21
well the fireballs were actually made for v30 speakers....but the v60 sound awsome too- no question!
