Worth every penny!

Frank B., 29.03.2010
Since I am probably one of the first to be this top part of his own, I write the first review immediately ;-)!

Since I have already played NEN powerball and so was also very satisfied, I had to have this amp, since the additional features are very useful and important to me! Basically, the sound is very similar to the predecessor, but for my taste better matched. After the first allusion, my first impression was that he was more designed for rock and not the mettaller as the predecessor. This was only due to the better-performing gain controllers, which have not already reached the maximum (in the lead channel) as far as the half (and in the lead channel).

So you can also play every imaginable kind of rock (and other) and adjust it better. The four separate gain controls are for me the biggest plus of the new powerball, although the "old" synonymous already well-tuned, but not soo flexible. The crunch channel also sounds somewhat fuller, only the clean channel could sound a bit warmer.

The Mid-Boost (called Mid-focused) is, in my opinion, synonymous better tuned and you can lower the shrill High-Mids (for example, in noisy solos) better. Other additional features are the switchable FX-way and the switchable Noisegate, which I neither use but also for certain applications make sense. For example, by switching off the NG in the lead channel (of course with moderate gain settings), you can play more dynamically and better with the volume pot of the strings.

Conclusion: cool features and improvements of an already good amp, all of which are very reasonable / coherent and justify the extra price more than. In my opinion, he also looks better, which is, of course, only a matter of taste!

Test before purchase!

Chris Singlemalt, 26.01.2011
First of all, I am satisfied with the amplifier, because it optimally fulfills my needs.

Sound: It is very good in the band structure, both clean and distorted, especially if one does not save with the mids. What I am not missing, but definitely mentioned, is that this amp downrum has not as big bassreserven as some other I have already played. However, in the case of band-oriented thinking, this can be left out, but has more than enough power. This is also true of the endless gain reserves. Again, I immediately fell in love with his sound, but I can imagine that he is not everybody's thing!

Features: In combination with the Z9 (optional), it is excellent to use, small things like the mid-boost make sense, by repeated treading on a channel button can be switched between the two master-volume - also a feature on which I no longer Would like to renounce.

What I do not approve is the built-in noise gate. It reacts quickly, you hardly hear the start-up time when you play again after a short silence, but the noise is suddenly suppressed, which sounds very inelegant. Because an external noise gate, which creates a liquid fade of noise suppression, makes itself better.

But does not make your purchase decision dependent on such a thing. Test it, it's more like the "hate it or love it" type.

Conclusion: Thought-proof design, sensible handling and a strong sound tamed behind a chic black solid metal grille make this giant brilliantly shine on every stage. If you are looking for an amp that delivers the power and the sound in a band of tougher gaits, especially with a second guitarist, the Powerball gets exactly what he is looking for.
