This amp is simply a beats! Nothing I can say or anyone else for that matter can really describe the enormous power this amp has. This is the metal player's dream amp if there ever was one. This amp has more power and chunk than a '43 Ford. It is heavy and brutal for the demands of a the high energy modern rock player.

This amp is four channels of extreme metal tastiness. There is a distinct voicing within Engl amps and this one captures all that German metal flavor in a nutshell. Yep it can clean up with the clean channels but this thing is build to tear down walls.

SOUNDS

The sound of this amp is just about as brutal as they come. The tone from this amp is just simply brutality in a box. You can destroy many walls in and objects in front of you with the level of power this amp has produce.

The tone of this amp is very punchy. It has an attack that just puts a hammer in your chest. Which for the style of music that caters to these amps will enjoy. You will most likely be better off bringing a guitar with active pickups in there and don't show up with a Fender telecaster.

OVERALL OPINION

I would recommend this amp to the brutal heads than need a good chugga chugga amp that is thick and powerful. At new these amp come in at around $2499. More of the expensive side of Engl amps. This is a rocker amp though and you won't be disappointed.
