      Thanks.

      I like em both for different reasons. The Savage has more of an old-school Marshall bite to it, it's dryer and tighter... while the SE has the more modern, saturated/gained-out sound, with that massive lowend that really shakes the place. Versatility also goes to the SE.

              the savage has a different feel to it than any other amp I've owned
              I just wish I could play as good as the savage sounds

                Good review! Your descriptions of channel 4 are pretty spot on, and looking at your settings you dial in pretty similar to me! I love all the gain stacking layers, but its easy to over do the gain on this amp.

                I agree about the 'smooth' feature....kinda useless for really high gain stuff imo.

                There's a few things I'd like to update to this amp...midi ports, as you said, switchable FX loops, easier biasing capabilities (you know what I mean if you've ever had to bias an ENGL!)

                  Totally agree on the smooth feature. Seems like a good idea on paper. I had the same experience with the Powerball. Maybe too much of a good thing?

                    I haven't had the chance to try a savage but, if it's supposed to be a blackmore on steroids then i bet it's the ****************ing-God-slayer-mega-ultra-super-badass-sex-in-a-box

                          This whole thing seems ****************ed, it's just not right to see this from you.
                          After all the **************** about engl over the years it doesn't seem right that you own them now. Im just saying it's weird.

                          Now that I have released my thoughts I wanna say congrats, that mght be the best amp engl makes. I really liked it alot when I had it and I could see myself someday selling my Blackmore and buying one. I think you made a good choice.

                            Nice. This amp is on many an album out of Studio Fredman, which always initiates the GAS.

                              Now that I have gained enough technical experience, I'm not too worried. If something goes down, I'll be able to fix it.


                              I've never played the Blackmore, but from what everyone that has played both say, its a Blackmore on roids.
