im really interested in an Engl combo,

probably the Engl thunder 50 combo,

is it worth spending the extra £200 to get the Screamer 50 combo,

can you also tell me why if it is worth getting the screamer


also i wld want to use this in a bedroom a lot too so would it sound good with an attenuator???


thanks very much,

I've never tried either before, but you might want to try PMing rwalby9, he has a Thunder 50 Combo.

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

Yeah it's worth the extra, it's just a much better amp. Much more versatile. The thunder would be fine aslong as you dont intend to go into very high gain genres though I suppose.
Main Gear:

Santiago S3 Spanish Classical
PRS CE22 Mahogany
Mesa/Boogie F-50 combo w/ G12K-100
Teese RMC Wizard Wah

would it work well with an attenuator because i plan on using it in my bedroom tons, i hope to gig with it later on but i may not for like a few years or maybe never at all!

it would work with an attenuator (assuming the speaker cable in the combo has a jack on the end of it and it's not hardwired), but engls sound pretty good at lower volumes. an attenuator may be a luxury rather than a necessity. personal preference, of course.

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.

the screamer is worth it. also it has a master volume i think so you really shouldn't need an attenuator

Sorry to hijack your thread like this but will the screamer do death metal? Because on the Engl site it's advertised as more of a rock amp.

it's more of a bright tone... more thrashy (to my ears, anyway). if you're in the USA, a peavey 5150/6505 might be a better option (though perhaps not as versatile)... it really depends on everything you want to play.

yeah it can.

the preamp which is labeled as modern rock has more gain on tap than pretty much any type of metal needs Engl tends to do that lol
