    Hey guys,

    i'd like to know which company could be comparable to Engl in term of build quality and reliability ? Mesa ?

    I'll be an Engl owner soon and I'm looking around a bit.

    thanks !


    hey Derek, would you be able to answer that question ?

    it would be appreciated

      Regarding build quality and reliability. I'm not a tech but alot of people think the build quality is mediocre at best but I have been a dealer for over 2 year's now and have sold more Engl product's than anyone. I have as of yet had a customer contact me about any problem's with their amp's(Knock on wood). I'm sure I would of heard if a major repaIR was needed cause I handle all warranty repair reimbursement's for my personal customers. So with me I have not had a problem with my any of my amp's either except a power tube that went south and microphonic preamp tubes. They have a great track record from my experience.

Real straight up no frill's from what they said with totally different tones than the other model's. I know they have been thinking of having channel 4 Bogner/Soldano influenced.I'll give more info when I know.

        Oh Ya!! They are thinking up names for it too so if you guy;s have any idea's let's hear and I'll pass it on!!!!

          Let me add my personal experience. My savage 120 has seen about 150 gigs and at least 200 rehearsals + studio time + home playing in the past 4.5 years and I've only had to replace the tubes a couple of times, no other issues whatsoever (knock on wood).

            Ive used Engl Screamer head for 6 months or a lil bit more and i recently replaced it with a 2ch triple rectifier. I'm sure if ive tried el-34s with it, id really like the sound but the extra options on the recto are superb IMHO. I will always have respect for Engls for their great sounds and quality though. Great amps!

                        See? Big chickens!
                        The other FBs I see have small knobs like on a powerball. Mine's about 2 or 3 years old. And it's microphonic

                            I'd be proud, if it wasn't unplayably microphonic

                              Even though I own a Fireball, I wish I had another ENGL or 3! I need some pics and clips too.
