    cheerz for that Nutter!

    i actually am seriously considering that one, but the savage 120 is also on the list.....maybe just maybe an SE but i think its probably not needed, all the fancy stuff on it and extra gain.

        Now its time for my question

        I recently have encountered a good amount of money after selling a ton of gear, and I am quite perplexed over what my next purchase should be. I'm a high-gain kind of guy, and will be playing progressive, tech, death metal with it. I also have extremely high clean standards though, and use it plenty. (If you can believe it) I have an Uber right now, and a Bogner closed back, slant, 4x12 cab that I run it through. Here are my thoughts:

        - I love the Cobra, but I really want to see what Lynch's amp will have to offer being a huge fan.

        - After hearing what ENGLs can do, I have become very interested in them. All I know about them though is what I've read from the Rock Solid Amps website.

        - Bogner XTC - What can I say that hasn't been said, I just love this amp

        - Matchless DC 30 - I've always wanted one, and I believe they could quite possibly have the single greatest clean tone ever.

        Anyways...sorry for the gigantic post, and any help will be greatly appreciated.

            Maybe been answered before but what are the major differences of the Engl amps ? or better the main music genre of each amp ?

            I think :
            thunder :
            - great cleans
            - bluesy
            - rock / classic rock

            screamer:
            - like the thunder but also
            - modern rock/ metal

            rbs :
            - like the screamer but
            - 100w
            - more features


            fireball :
            ...

            powerball:

            savage:
            ...

            ...

                  Hello guys,

                  here is my Engl Powerball Full Stack. It has changed. I sold one slant cabinet and bought a straight one.





                  The Powerball is a cool Amp but I wish it had an open sound.

                          • hal9000, i like the look of those front panels. it got me thinking, too. i like the blue LED for the cleen channel of the Powerball. would it be possible to change out one or two LED's from the front panel of an actual ENGL?

                              Seriously...I played it yesterday at practice. It sounds more crushing every time I play it that loud. I couldn't believe the tone I was getting. Love it!

                                Unfortunately, I can't really answer the question until I know how your amp is constructed, but in general electrically YES it is possible.

                                Physically:
                                If the front panel and all controls are mounted to a PC board, then the change may not be worth the time investment. You would likely have to remove every single knob to pull the front panel PCB off.

                                If the LEDs are mounted to the front panel and attached to the PCB with flying leads, then the physical change should be straight forward.

                                Electrically:
                                Different LED types and colors require differing bias to light them to consistent luminosity. So, in general, you will likely have to change the LED and the resistor used to bias it to get a satisfactory result. Some LEDs have the resistor built-in BTW.

                                I can tell you how to figure out what you need, I just have to have more information about the construction and the electrical specs.
