I have a bit of a thing for an Engl but I've read a few people being critical of a few of their models and I'm wondering if anyone could give any experienced opinions on any models? I'd like to get a higher wattage one for gigging next year but I can't exactly test them before buying when it comes to that department.
My experience with the Savage 120:
- Very versatile
- Great Cleans
- Clear, cutting, stands out in a band mix
- Tight as fuck!
- Very aggressive
- Looks badass (awesome internal lighting)
- More than enough gain on tap, bye-bye tubescreamers etc
- Not much character
- Makes practically every guitar/pickup combination sound the same
- Not really possible to get a nice loose, organic rock tone, or to do anything like sludge or stoner type stuff.
