so im looking into getting an engl amp.
but here's my issue, besides money(i plan on financing) i would really like the fireball 100, but if i can save$$$ i will.
i mainly play death metal, and im working on tech stuff and diminished scales with my new teacher (steve smyth).
SOOOO im not looking to be a beast with my tone, buuuut i want something more than my b52.
some things i want opionions on Buy Engl Tube Preamp E 530 | Guitar Preamps | Musician's Friend
Buy Engl Thunder 50W Guitar Amp Head | Tube Amp Heads | Musician's Friend
im not gigantic on lead tone, i can always tweak it with pedals and in the studio.
i also plan on getting either 1x12 or 2x12 engl or marshal or mesa
I had a powerball V2 and sold it to buy an ENGL Invader,
having tried almost every ENGL amp there is (haven't tried their new Midi module, or the Thunder 50) i would strongly recommend the Invader, you can pick one up used in the mid 2000's.
Considering a new Fireball 100 will cost close to 2k after all is said and done, i would save up for an Invader.
