If you know Engl, then you know quality! The ENGL INVADER 100 is, by far, the finest tube amp I've ever played. When I bought it, I had the priviledge to test it against the fragship amps from Marshall, Mesa Boogie, Diezel, Bogner, Rivera, Framus, VHT / Fryette, Soldano & several others. In terms of flexibility, versatility, range of tones, options, clarity & articulation, no other amp even came close! So why am I offering this up for sale? Simply put, I'm entertaining the idea of going to a rackmount setup to accomodate my current gigs. The amp is in new condition, has less than 50 hours total & only gigged out once.
The Invader 100 is $2849+tax new & you can snag this one for $2200 cash. I am interested in a trade or trade+cash deals for the following items only:
Fractal Audio Axe-FX Standard, Ultra or Axe-FX II processer
Fractal Audio MFC-101 midi footcontroller
Preamps: Engl E570, E530, E580
Poweramps: Engl E840/50 or E850/100, Mesa Boogie 20/20, 50/50, 2:90, 2:100, Marshall 9100 or 9200, VHT / Fryette 2:90:2 or 2:50:2, Carvin DCML, ART SLA-2
Rackmount Switchers: Voodoo Labs or RJM Music
My idea is to go all Axe-FX or all Engl rackmount.

INVADER 100 E642
Perfect tool for players identity:
The basic layout of the Invader consists of an all tube driven head, that features 8 different gain stages in 4 separate channels that include four separate EQs.
Powered by 4 EL 34 Tubes the Invader delivers a total amount of 100 watts. The idea behind the Invader is that guitarists need most flexibility and control for any given playing situation. Easy to handle ñ just focusing on pure tube tone.
The Invader achieves that with a new concept: This amp does not feature the classic 4 channel head layout of a Clean- Crunch- Rhythm- Lead channel.
The Invader is different.
Named Channel 1, 2, 3, 4, these channels are able to produce different Overdrive / Gain structures ñ each one from Crunch to High Gain. Every Overdrive Voicing in the channels is different.
In conjunction with the Hi / Lo gain switch, which can be remote controlled and a separate EQ section for each channel, there will be no limits except the guitarist creativity.
Silken Clean to Crispy Crunch
Fat & Bulky Crunch to NU-Rock / Metal Rhythm / Lead
Tight Warm Crunch to Classic Dynamic Rock / Metal
Modern Crunch to Singing Harmonic Leads
i'll trade you a carton of smokes, thats like $3k prison dollars
