Hoping a newb can get some help.
I'm a casual/learning guitarist who is wanting to purchase an Engl Fireball head for my boyfriend. I know that he has wanted an Engl Fireball for awhile, but don't know whether he would prefer a 60w or a 100w. From what I have read, it seems that the 60w doesn't handle mids as well as the 100w does, but I haven't heard of anything that the 100w can't do that the 60w can. Does anyone have experience with both these amps? If so, do you think there are any drawbacks to the 100w?
There isn't anywhere locally that I could take him shopping with me to purchase it, so I want to have a fairly good idea what I'm doing before I order one...!
I can't speak for the 100 unfortunately, but I have experience with the 60w. When you say it can't handle the mids, basically it just gets lost in a mix. It's fine if its in a mix against a Marshall MG or something like that, but up against any amp with any ability to cut through, and the Fireball disappears.
Hopefully someone can answer more on the 100, I'm interested to hear about the difference myself.
