    The first pic is the most recent style.

    You can see the difference in the input jack. The early one also had a funny logo whereas the new one just has a 6l6 tube.

      I switched some preamp tubes around yesterday and now I'm falling in love with my amp all over again. Ch. 2 on it absolutely slays! It has never sounded this good. I'm in tonal heaven....

        Nope. One is US version and the other is UK version, from what I was told. I got the PowerBall two months after it was released, and I'm guessing it was part of the first batch to hit the US.

          But they still both have tiny, pathetic, insignificant little knobs compared to my chickens of destruction!

            hey guys, i'm wondering how similar the Powerball's and the SE's power sections are.

            how close would i be to the Special Edition head if i used the 570 preamp into the Powerball's poweramp?

            i know there would be a few features i'd be missing out on, but generally speaking, tone for tone, how close do you think could i get?

              I didn't know you could do this as the Powerball doesn't have a slave/poweramp input. Why not just get the SE head? It looks mean.

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!!!!

                  Whoa, and I thought the SE was badass! I'm guessing it will have a spongier attack, and I would rather have the SE. I sure am glad the PB curbing my gas, though, whew!

                    No offense Egbert, but I hate chicken knobs. I wanna put rectal knobs on mine, like the SE. Looks soooooo badass.

                      well, at the risk of sounding like an idiot, couldn't you just plug the preamp into the fx return jack and turn the mix all the way up?

                          Hmmm. Could be worth a try. You try it first and tell me how it goes.

                          LOL Genius!
                          I hope this new head doesn't make me sell my Powerball!

                              Derek


                              i have a few:

                              -ENGL Supreme
                              -ENGL Seth (ancient egyptian God of Darkness)
                              -ENGL Master
                              -ENGL Myth
                              -ENGL Rapture
                              -ENGL Apocalypse
                              -ENGL Z

                              btw Derek, im going to get an ENGL, i was wondering which ENGL is the best for lead guitar, bassy, wide, sustained, creamy etc.
                              90% of the time i play solos.

                              cheerz

                                I think he will suggest the Ritchie Blackmore head.
