Perfect amp for years

Alizen, 22.07.2018
Before I bought this amp, I had been dreaming of it for approximately a year.
I was collecting money and looking over higain amps on the market.
I was searching for all information, articles and video at the Internet.
When I heard Metal Master at the first time, I was so impressed of Engl that it turned into an obsession.
I've watched video with Marco Wriedt for about 100 times.
I have Blackstar HT Metal pedal, which I think is awesome. And I was looking for something with another tone saturation.
In my opinion, Randall from RD series was very similar to Blackstar. I don`t like Marshall because it sounds too vintage (muffledly, deafly, hushfully) for me. I liked the sound of Kraken from Victory but it sounds good only in video with Rabea Massaad, and it demands additional cabinet. Randall from Ola sounds perfect and comparable to Engl, but hell Ola with your marketing! it`s too expensive for me! Peavy mini head 6505 is too small and too China?
The more difficult decision was to choose between Eng Ironball and Metal Master. I would buy Ironball, but it had only 20w version. Ironball has more tubes in preamp and it`s multipurpose for more styles.
And Metal master sounds for me so raw and harsh. It reminds me that something is ripped or shredded.
I like crooked, rough and crispy modern sound of distortion.
I chose 40w version because I wanted to have power reserve with possibility to play in a band.
It`s really loud. At the moment I use lead channel at 1 degree master volume from 10 in my apartment.
Weight 17.8 kg
Dimensions: 49 cm x 44.5 x 25 cm (W x H x D);
Khrom knobs are made with plactic. I wright it because I was expecting metal knobs.
It well made device for years of using.

Great sound

jose planeta, 12.07.2018
The ampli has a sonidazo. Not only in distortions more metal, in clean sounds and more moderate gathers also develops luxury. It has an ideal size and weight to go to and from the premises, and the 40 w valves give a brutal volume, more than enough to rehearse with sugarcane battery.

The MID SCOOP function gives an extra twist to the sound, and it defines very well.

I do not give 5 stars in everything because unfortunately the ampli began to fail a week and I had to return it. I understand that it is a punctual failure and when it touches you, it touches you, although after the return I preferred to take the same model but in head and screen, since it is always easier to protect a head of blows etc in transport than a combo, simply by size.
