Engl retro tube combo

Sylvain685, 12.01.2013
Very good product, versatile and fast to regulate to get a very good sound. Powerful, I use it as is at home and plugged in with a cab engl 12 'in addition to repet.
The quality of sound is well presented, used with the z9 pedal. The only small defect that I note for now: when playing opposite the hp, the facade is upside down, less practical for adjustments.

After testing and buying amplifiers of all classes over 20 years, my trip has finally come to an end. For a long time, I have not been as often and as much in my program as in the last few weeks. The English is simply addictive.
4 weeks ago I went to Thomann and actually had a completely different amp on the screen. Then the nice Thomannmitarbeiter the extra combo for me from the camp and let the Saturday (the guitars department was rappelvoll with people, thank you again) When I coaxed the first tones from the combo, it had already happened to me. The cleane channel has a fabulous compression. It's just fun to play with the controls, especially with the gain, you get instantly usable results. With the Gainboost you are full of blues fever. The guitar "sings" right, even at low setting.
Channel 2 then hit me right from the socks. That's him! This sound I always wanted. Middle, creamy, the heights scratch or annoy not and in the bass range everything remains nicely tidied. The entire frequency spectrum of the guitar can be heard. Nevertheless, one never has the impression that the sound is too smoothly ironed, it always remains raw and open.
After I have tried the different styles for a while (also the evil down-tuned, why is the amp actually "retro"?) I found the magic button. A small, inconspicuous little button underneath the "Tone," brings out a completely different aspect of the English. It is unbelievable what suddenly comes out of the speaker. The lower mids get now really thrust .... I'm in heaven.

Who will say a, need to say b as well. The retro tube is best controlled with the Engl Z9. This SAC circuit from Engl is awesome. The arrangements of the additional functions are somewhat tricky to program. But once you have straightened it, you have a switching center in front of you, with which one has all important sound options of the amplifier in view, or better in the kick.

I have not found a setting that does not sound good. If you are looking for an amp that sounds both traditional and modern, a simple and logical operation, or a remote control, a small combo that has just the right power (more than 50W tubepower is usually not useful, since the amplifiers are not really in The saturation coming), which has arrived with this amp! I am in any case.
