This amp is designed to officiate as the missing link between the analog and the digital world. Soundwise ENGL made no compromises, so there are no semiconductors in the signal path to keep the sound as pure as possible. This amp is in fact an All-Tube-Head. Basically it is a two channel amp where every channel is boostable. The Clean channel offers chime shimmering cleans and smoothly breaks up at higher settings. Thanks to the gain boost function you can boost the channel to get nice shimmering crunch sounds out of it.
The Lead channel starts where the Clean channel ends and offers a huge amount of gain and can even be boosted to make it more versatile. This channel is perfect to play any style of Rock and Metal music. We used digital components for the Midi System, the Effects section and the Impulse Response Loader. The built-in Power Soak offers you the opportunity to play late at night or whenever higher volumes are unacceptable. Furthermore it gives you the opportunity to push the amplifier´s poweramp to breakup at low volumes.
