"Congratulations, what a great amp! I love the fast dynamics, the tone and the bottom end of ENGL amps! I was sold on this amp even before I actually heard it, I love the design and the perfect sound for any occasion!"
"My Engl amp has exactly what I've been looking for - round warm mids, and more energy and balls than you could ever ask for in a modern amp. In GNR there's a wall of sound a guitar could easily get lost in, but the Engl bites right through it with distinct tone, character and clarity. All-tube, all-natural, punchy, warm, loud, ballsy, tone, personality, and MIDI-control - it's got it all."
"Engl is the first ampline that I have ever used that not only has balls ... But Attitude, right out of the box!"
When you can get onstage every night, play legendary songs from a back catalogue spanning 4 decades, and only use one amp...... that's when you know you have something special! Reliable, precise, powerful and dynamic: that's what I demand from an amp and that's what the Engl powerball 2 delivers
I first tried an Engl amp-head in 1998 when my own amp had broken down during a recording session and I must say it saved my day. 12 years later I had a similar situation on a tour and once again Engl had my back. Needless to say I decided to roll with them from there on.
"From crystal clean to massive gain, the Engl does it all - these amps kill!"
"“Get and feel the real deepness of the tubes.”
Playing with Def Leppard requires a variety of quality guitar tones; ENGL makes it possible
"The Search is over!
... My 20 year quest for the guitar tone I've heard only in my head is now a reality! The Savage and the Powerball ... absolutely amazing!
The Search is truly over!"
This is the first time I've been able to take a cable from my guitar and plug it directly into an amp.
"My sound demands a monster , and I finally found it. There is no way back, and I'm damn proud of it."
"The Powerball is the simplest amp I have ever used. With all the settings completely FLAT (yes, FLAT!) it sounds great!! I just plug directly in and go. So for all of you who want to know my settings, that's it ..."
"Engl amplification is by far the best product I have used in years. These amplifiers are extremely versatile because they can produce just about any sound imaginable. The clean tone is crystal clear and absolutely beautifull; the Crunch and High Gain stages are Jaw-dropping. In fact, I call these amplifiers Beauty and the Beast !!!
As many people know, I tend to play Extremely Fast and Clean which means I need an amplifier that can track quickly and clearly, fortunately Engl keeps up with my shredding and asks for more !! Great job Engl !!!! "
"Engl Amps are the best amps I've ever used - not only are they powerful, but they have texture and character too."
"Engl Amps redefine heavyness with the new Invader amp! Nothing comes even close to the extreme energy this monster produces!"
"My search for the perfect sound has ended with the Retro Tube 100. I can walk on to any stage knowing that people are hearing exactly what I feel when I play. ENGL is my voice."
"20 years and dozens of amps later, I have finally found the sound I have been looking for. Powerful, clean, and in your face. No more messing around with pedal chains to find the tone I want as ENGL's are almost too easy to dial in. It's virtually impossible to make these amps sound bad."
"One word: Astounding! Undeniabley the best amp i have ever heard. I've been searching my entire musical career for the most shimmering clean to the most brutal heavey tones in one amp, and that dream has finally come true. Thank you Engl for making it a reality ..."
'I've been utterly blown away by ENGL amps. My Powerball 2 provides me with amazing and equally diverse tone. It is extremely reliable and really looks the business up on stage.'
"ENGL makes the best amplifiers out there, period! Extreme clarity, tight bottom end, and my leads really cut through the mix. It is very musical. Incredible in the studio and on stage! The guitar gods have spoken!!"
"Finally I found the perfect tone that I have been looking for! No pedals or compressors. Just direct to the Powerball. The clean channel is so broad and crisp while the distortion and heavy bottom end just brings the fuckin' house down. This amp covers all my needs. The Engl Powerball is the best sounding head on this planet HANDS DOWN!"
"For the last 10 years of touring I've tried to nail down my town 1 amp at a time. after pulling my hair out and 100 amps later. ENGL is the Sound of Madness for Shinedown ... "
The Engl Powerball 2 sounds f****g incredible! I was at a point
where multi channel amps were not my thing and then I heard this.
Each channel is very unique and cuts trough in a mix
I don't mess around with lots of pedals I just use the clean and edge switch on my Engl amp and raw play power ...
"Drei Engl für Herman ... Since 20 years ENGL amps are giving me that heavenly punch and tone."
Accept and Engl : Legendary riffs and legendary tone !
ENGL is the only amp that I have never had to add any effects to, in order to reach my perfect tone.
ENGL combines everything I have been looking for in an amp and more!!! The unbelievable tone: ranging from pristine clean to unforgiving distortion and every area in between, it always sounds great. The reliability: I am hard on gear, especially on tour and I have never had one break down. The Versatility: with the ability to switch tones, volume and so many other features I never feel limited to one style or sound.
"Avenging ENGL: Unassailable power and versatility."
My Engl SE 670 EL 34 provides fantastic flexibility--the tonal spectrum goes from pristine to thunderous. It tracks and articulates beautifully, even at higher gain settings. I absolutely love it.
"If you're about to march into battle, you have to make sure your armament is superior. With my ENGL I am invincible and ready to kill. This is the ultimate weapon for every metal warrior ... "
"I am using ENGL amps for years now on stage and in the studio. In every situation it sounds amazing. My ENGL savage 120 is the amp I was always looking for - an amp that sounds amazing without 100 tools that are switched in a row between guitar and amp! Simply brutal and warm in the same tone! I tried a lot before but I found the way home finally!"
I have shared the stage with so many musicians that rock ENGL amps and all I have to say is , why the hell am I not playing one yet? I love their powerful sound and can't wait to get a hold of my own!" Now that is going to change.
"The E570 special edition pre-amp, combined with the E850/100 power-amp, has enabled me to achieve a multitude of incredible tones. From a heavy, classic rock distortion, to a crisp clean, this covers my bases. I've been searching all over for the most versatile amp to suit my needs, and this is for sure it."
"Of all the amps I¥ve tested and played until now, the Invader 100 is by far the most versatile and musician friendliest one. It works perfectly in live situations, because the 4 channels are very easy to switch and programm in connection with the effect loop. I can recommand this amp for any style of music; may it be metal, jazz, blues or anything else"
I've owned a lot of amps over the years, and still do, but they have all gathered dust since I got my hands on the Savage 120. Best amp in the world, bar none!
Finally an amp that has all the features I've been looking for AND the tone to go with it. Purely crushing!
"Absolutely punishing! The savage 120 is by far the most brutal amp I have ever played/heard. Super tight on the low and high end for fast rythms. Simply the perfect Metal amp!"
"Wherever I am, studio or live...since I'm a member of the ENGL family I feel secure in every situation! Of course, I expect nothing than the best...or as we say: highs without lows!... but what comes along with ENGL by your side is strength, power and passion! I finally found what I always searched for...something worth dying for!"
"I started playing ENGL amps during the 'Keeper Of The Seven Keys 2' recording session. Despite numerous tries I still stuck on those powerful amps. Henjo and me also recorded the new GAMMARAY album 'Land Of The Free 2' with ENGL amps. Some things just stay good"
"Die Toten Hosen" on Tour with 4 x ENGL 4x12" Vintage Cabinets and 2x ENGL E670 Special Edition EL-34 heads!
"Do you really Need a Statement ?? I Finally joined the Family!"
"The Engl Amps give me exactly what I need in the studio and on the road, every time. Clear clean sounds, plus crushing rock tones of every description. Beautiful and Deadly! The perfect combination!"
Ever since I discovered the Savage 120 back in 1998, at the recording of our second album "Legacy Of Kings", there has been no other for me. I have used my trusted companion on every recording and every tour since. And should he for some reason fail me on any given night, I have his twin pumped up, ready and eager to go. To me, ENGL epitomizes the heavy metal attitude both in sound and design, and no other amp I have ever tried has even been close.
"When you plug into an Engl amp, it's instant vibe. The way Engl does gain, there's a taut, resilient power you feel immediately under your fingers. You're going to sound, and play, better. No kidding."
"There are no limits with Engl amps. You'll never turn a knob all the way up and wish you had more. There's plenty of gain, and all of the tone controls sound awesome. These amps will get you the sounds that you've been chasing!"
"My Engl Classic Tube 50 Combo rocks! It has a great crunch rhythm and the smoothest overdrive that works with my strat or Les Paul. Very versatile, very satisfying!"
"Comparing the Engl Powerball Amp to all the other amps at the Studio was like comparing Godzilla to Bambi! The Engl ate them up and spit them out! Truly impressive."
My new Engl Amp has become a vital part of my live rig from the moment I got it. Brutal, sizzling, all out crushing modern tone is what I desire and Engl delivers! The interface is user friendly and that suits me fine because I don’t need all kinds of useless bells and whistles to clutter my setup. Don’t get me wrong, it has everything I need to give me total control over my tone! I especially dig the separate lo mid / hi mid voicing knobs on my E 530, I can totally dial in the exact sound that I hear in my head. All this in one single rack space tube pre-amp! To top it off, with all the touring that Death Angel does, the ease of transport due to its size is a Godsend. Customer service couldn’t be any better either! Engl ROCKS!
My Engl serves my needs perfectly. I get all the sounds from clean and
rhythm to lead out of it. It's cool to have "all in one", especially when
you tour a lot. And the sounds are just phenomenal! And trust me, I´m
really picky about my tone..
"I love Engl heads and cabinets for the style of brutal death metal that Dying Fetus delivers. They have tons of gain, great focus and killer harmonic overtones. On our latest album "Descend into Depravity" we used the Savage 120 head and it totally destroys! I am addicted to the Engl sound and tone and will continue to use them and crush audiences worldwide!"
"When it comes to Death Metal the way it should be there is only one choice for Me - ENGL! Superb tone, distortion and probably most important of all - the midrange. It sounds like a 60 ton truckster coming roaring down the highway..."
"I use ENGL because it's a reliable amplifier with round and warm mids and good sounding treble and crunch. The Savage 120 amplifier is absolutely perfect for dark and melodic old school death metal, like it should be." Prepare for hell!"
"The powerball changed my attitude about walking on stage every night. Finally I have the perfect amp for me. I found a tone instantly that made me never want to look at another amp again, and am excited to see what the future holds with these incredibly versitile amps! I am excited to know I never need to look farther for perfect tone again"
"Everyone knows the POWERBALL from ENGL can get the massive modern mosh tones. But I can dial up all my fav AC/CD tones, ZAKK tones, Moore tones, Clapton, EVH, SRV, EJ, etc etc etc ... In an amp with 6L6s! I wouldn't have believed it. Sure it can mosh metal for days, but it also rewards an ol' axe and good hands. You DIG?"
My amp sounds like 1000 men marching to war. Aggressive and powerful with amazing clarity.
My amp is build to last a nuclear war.
My amp is built by ENGL
My ENGL amp has everything I need to execute frantic riffs in Noctem. For me it is the ultimate weapon. Authentic heavy artillery.
"Engl Powerball miraculously fits my outrage, and shakes my great balls of frost!"
"As guitarist, we are always searching for that elusive tone in an amp that ‘does it all’. ENGL has created that amp! Silky, shimmering cleans - crunch with lots of punch and definition - and the Lead modes, with smooth high end, extremely tight bottom, and more gain than you could ever wish for. I really dig all the tone-sculpting and switching options, as well. From the crystal-clear clean channel to the brutal, ‘rip your face off’ high-gain modes, ( and everything in-between ) - this amp really does it all. It’s everything I’ve been searching for! Absolutely killer!"
Check out the SCORPIONS on tours, TVshows and whatever else media worldwide ...
I've tried to find amps that give me enough power and distortion, but still sound clear and natural.
Since I play ENGL the search is over. No more pedals or preamps, just plug in and devastate.
Wild, famous German Metal Band worldwide on tour with 30! 4 x 12" Vintage Cabinets. Singer / Guitarist Rolf Kasparek uses 2 Savage SE heads, Guitarist Bernd Aufermann uses the Special Edition EL 34 head, Powerballs and 580 Tube Preamp.
„Der Retro 50 bzw 100 ist für mich momentan der einzige Amp am Markt, der die Bezeichnung „Retro“ verdient. Er besticht durch seinen warmen Vintage Sound und sein unglaubliches Durchsetzungsvermögen. Er ist zudem vielseitig einsetzbar.“
"For me the Retro 50 or 100 is at the moment the only amp on the market that deserves the name "Retro". It impresses with its warm vintage sound and its incredible assertiveness. Moreover, it's versatile."
„The Retro 50 is something to fall in love with. For me it is a great contribution for spreading the guitar mischief!“
I love Engl amps, especially the Fireball model! It has a pure clean channel and a great rock lead tone that gives me the right punch I need when I play! I always searched for a huge fat sound and when I tried the Fireball combined with the Engl cabinet 4x12 I shouted loud: That's it...I found my sound! Engl are one of the most solid amps you can find and they are really well made, with a rare attention to detalis, fine materials and, last but not least, a beautiful line! Another thing I love is that these amps are easy to use: just need to plug the guitar into the amp and magically the right sound comes up!
"Cuts through a wall of bagpipes, delivers warm and shimmering clean sounds and hits you right in the face with hi-gain if you need it... Engl manages all this easily and stays unique. Thank you!"
"To me, Engl represents a modern, well-defined heavy rock sound, that has not forgotten its roots of rock'n'roll"

"This head is so fuckin’ versatile delivering a depth and clarity in tone that is unparalleled. The Savage 120 is perfect for massive sound with brilliance in precision."
My new ENGL amp is exactly what I was looking for so long. Tight depths, warm mids and singing heights. It offers you more possibilities than a jet-cockpit but it’s easy to handle, an absolutely killer amp. It’s not easy to remedy ones smile after a show with these amps.
"If you really want that huge metal sound, where you can have the best lead you’ve ever heard and at the same time get the heaviest rhythm sound - ENGL is the only choice"
"Even if I have a shitty monitor sound I always know that I can take a couple of steps back towards my ENGL and enjoy every note I hit. It kicks my ass every night."
"The Engl Powerball can sound more beautiful and clean than a little innocent angel whispering in your ear, and yet with a simple switch of a button you can walk straight through the gates of hell and hear hells bells thundering so loud and brutal that it makes your grandmother wish you never picked up the guitar"
"Killer tube tones, from clean to mean and everything in between."
"ENGL's versatile and pure sound meets all my live and studio needs. I have yet to find a setting that sounds bad on my Powerball. And it looks good too!"
"ENGL has a tight a powerful sound that is exactly what I need. The distortion sound is aggressive and sounds great in any context"
"I trust ENGL amps since many years. Since I play the POWERBALL, I can't imagine playing any other amp. The search has an end!!!"
"I've used my Fireball amps for many years now. The perfect choice for live and recording. I wanted it loud, and that's what I got ..."
"Why do I love ENGL amps? Gain for Days, a Crunch that rival’s the Captain, and one of the sweetest shimmering cleans I’ve heard in a nice small roadworthy package."
Great tone in a small package that one can carry into a small club and large enough for the arenas!
A great sounding amp with all the versatility I need, both in technique and tone.
"The ENGL sound makes the undead walk on earth and covers all my needs!
"I have played many amps before from tube to digital modelling amps. I never found the tone and feel I was looking for. But with my ENGL Invader I definetely found my dream amp! You can find every sound in it you want; from sparkling clean sounds to bluesy rock sound and off course killing metal rhytm and lead sounds ... For more personal info check: www.bobwijtsma.nl"
"For many many years I have been in search of what I believe to be the ultimate guitar tone, I have tried virtually every amp / cabinet there is, but nothing was right until I played thru an 'Engl E850/100 valve power amp' and 4 ENGL 4x12's ... The tone was massive and gain was awesome but all with incredible clarity - needless to say wherever I play in the world, my amp comes with me ..."
When it comes to tone I can't accept anything less than the best which is why you go with Engl. I need to have a modern sound that's heavy, pronounced, articulate and that can cut through a mix and for that the 530 preamp delivers. Engl amps are no nonsense and you can get crushing sounds without having to spend hours or days dialing in your sound. You turn it on and you've simply got the best tone in the business.
During a Nile tour across Europe , one of my Amp-Heads I had been using from a rental company died mid -tour, minutes before show time . Luckily , as fate would have it , the backline company had thoughtfully sent along an Engl Head as a spare .
Totally under the gun - with the clock ticking down upon us , in only a few precious moments - I was able to dial up a supremely brutal tone with the Engl –and easily incorporate the Engl channel switching into my current rig . During the course of our live set that night ,I was so blown away by what I heard that I used the Engl for the rest of the tour .
I have never EVER EVER heard that much savage yet wonderful clear articulate musical tone – and never before heard my own leads in such gloriously musical detail – as with the Engl.
Engl Amps deliver when it counts !
"It was a hard long miserable trail to find my personal sound but what I found rewards all the pain. Since the first time the Engl spoke, I knew that's the holy grail of tone and I'm heaven a bit closer. Now the Engl speak every night and not only to me."
"I first came across ENGL amps in 2004 whilst recording the Diamond Head album 'All Will Be Revealed'.
I had been using a different amp but it lacked gain for a more modern sound.
I borrowed an ENGL Screamer 50 and fell in love with it.
It had all the tone and mid range I was looking for coupled with tons of gain. It immediately became my main amp and have been using it for recording and live shows ever since. Since 2005 my Engl 50 watt Screamer and Diamond Head have been out on the road with Megadeth, Metallica, Thin Lizzy, Europe and numerous Diamond Head tours.
This year sees Diamond Head hitting the US powered by Engl.."
"When I first plugged into an ENGL I was blown away and couldn't get enough of it. Such a big sound and easy to use I knew right away these were the amps for me. Amazing tone and all the features I need all in one amp."
"After several years trying to find the perfect amp, I found the Engl Fireball, a German monster for every battle behind my back."
"The ENGL sound is crisp, clear and brilliant. I couldnít ask for more. Compared to other brands, ENGL brings it up a notch. Using a Savage 120 on stage will always guarantee you a loud and steady performance. Awesome!"
"My Engl Savage 120 has been my best guitar sound weapon since 1996! In the studio it has always been the first choice for recording all kinds of metal guitar. I have compared it with all the well known Amps but my Savage 120 has always had the best sound, this is in my opinion a mile stone in metal guitar sound!!!"
"Seit zehn Jahren ca. nutze ich schon ENGL Amps. Zur Zeit den Powerball. Er hat mich nie im Stich gelassen. Egal auf Tour oder im Studio. Ich schätze die klangliche Vielfalt und die unglaubliche gute, robuste Verarbeitung einfach sehr. Es ist einfach genau mein Sound. Ich konnte mich in keinem anderen Amp so wiederfinden wie in ENGL Amps. Im Speziellen überzeugt der Powerball einfach in jeder Lage. Er setzt sich immer durch, wird aber nie matschig. Die Bässe sind immer stramm und Präzise und die Höhen singen einfach wunderbar. Da wir teilweise bis Dropped-G herunterstimmen ist das besonders mit den Bässen ein Kriterium gewesen. Aber selbst solche Tunings funktionieren perfekt. Der Cleansound ist einfach wunderbar Crisp und da ich Vielseitigkeit schätze kommen mir besonders die vier Kanäle sehr entgegen. Kurzum, einfach der perfekte Amp."
"The best friends since '96.
Savage 120: Killer sound, solid and reliable."
"Simply just amazing! First time plugging into an ENGL I knew right away this was the amp for me. Very powerful and huge sounding but yet very articulate."
"ENGL amps have that extra juice that I've always needed in an amp. Massive sound with the flexibility to get anything you'd like to achieve in your sound, it's amazing! My search for the perfect amp is finally over. Go with ENGL!"
"Take everything great about German engineering philosophies and set forward with the goal of creating the most destructive sounding amp possible and you have ENGL. Uncompromised tone and clarity from the cleanest to heaviest settings, and the kind of growl you might expect out of a pissed off tiger. These amps roar!"
“Three words, BALLS OF STEEL! The ENGL amp range can do anything you can think of for as long as you desire. The craftsmanship, reliability, and tone of these amps is unbelievable.”
"The Engl E 570 is just an amazing sounding Tube Preamp. The four basic channels together with the various programmable options gives you the opportunity to create every sound you can imagine. This is definitely the preamp I have been looking for."
"I have been playing ENGL gear for the past 4 years now so I'm very glad to be apart of the ENGL family! From the tone to the construction of the amp, nothing beats it! I'll be with ENGL for many more years to come!"
Purity, intensity and overwhelming power, that's what Disbelief needs and what Engl gives me in an impressive way
Well, Engl amps are known as high-quality products. Thats true! I use the new Fireball 100 for studio recordings as well as at single concerts and tours, and i really must say, this amp is awesome, and entwine both, the brute sound and the elegance of tone. That`s how it should be in metal! Incomparable, Untouchable, there is no manufacturers`competition, Engl wins!...
"There's a before and a after, once you try a ENGL amp,
My E646 VS is a beast ready to strike in any situation, either live or in the studio. ...
ENLG is everything I was looking for, and even more!"
I'm a constant explorer of sound and creative boundaries, and have always strived for amplification that can meet my demanding and pioneering Middle-Eastern Rock Guitar extravaganza. luckily, Engl have created such an amp.
If music is a language, then ENGL is my voice
Crank up the clean channel of a Fireball E625 and put your favorite overdrive pedal in front of it. Result: the punchiest "nu-vintage" sound ever!
"The Engl Invader blew me away! Playing metal combined with cassical/medival instruments makes me need a guitar amp that can meet highest demands. Never met an amplifier as versatile as this one! Finally my search has an end!"
"The Engl amp has exactly what I've been looking for : warm mids,awesome gain and more energy and power than you could ever ask for in a modern amp. .... The Engl tone is a personal tone,with definition and clarity. All-tube, punchy, warm, loud,reliable... is the dream for all guitar players."
“We recently did a long tour all over the world in November/December 2010 through Russia, Asia, Latin America and South America and got in touch with many different amps and cabinets as rental backline on this tour.
It was always by far the best guitar sound when we got Engl equipment.
Therefore no doubt about the amps we are going to use in the upcoming years starting from the next European tour already. Rhapsody Of Fire are really proud to be part of the glorious Engl family!”
"From crystal cleans to soaring leads, and everything in between. I will not compromise...
...every note, every time, Only ENGL"
"I'll never forget the first time I played through an ENGL. I felt like I had heard the perfect
sound/tone, It was one of those, 'I can't stop playing this' type of amps. Now, having played
most of the models, I'm still surprised by each and every one, and still get that same
feeling I did when I played one for the very first time."
“Killer amp with killer sound and killer look – and it even dries my hair :D”
"I've been using the Powerball II almost since Neonfly started, it's got great tone and it's really versatile from clean to high gain stuff, this amp really delivers. It's fun and easy to use, that's why I love it."
"The first time I tried an ENGL I knew I have to had one, and three years on my special edition continues to surprise me with it's versatility, reliability and sheer tone! Engl have become an integral part of Neonflys' sound, both in studio and as a workhorse on tour over the past few years, I couldn't see myself using anything else."
"When we recorded our Evolution EP a few years back, we used a couple 'standard' amps for basic guitar tracking. We dug the sound we were getting, but our producer kept telling us about the 'holy grail' of heavy guitar tone... at first he wouldn't give us details, but we kept prodding. It turned out he was talking about ENGL. He spoke about it like it was this legendary, mythical amp that always remained elusive. Eventually, we got one in the studio, and the sound was HUGE! Thick, crunchy, larger than life, yet still versatile. Fast forward, and here we are officially collaborating with ENGL... it's a dream come true. ENGL is gonna help us bring the IL love to Europe on our fall tour, and we couldn't be more excited."
"Playing on an amp that has its own character just forces the musicality right out of you!
Having dynamic and clean sound means you could play absolutely anything...
Retro Tube 100 E765 is very dynamic, has great cleans and nice overdriven sound...
Powerfull, built like a tank.... E765 is the real retro of the 21st century!"
"I've always been a fan of cristal clear and powerfull heavy guitar sound, and when I tried Engl that blew me away! I use Engl Powerball 2 and It is the best amp head that I ever played ,great for that dark but very clear tones that I just love!"
"I have always been a traditional guitarist when it comes to amps (you know, "go with the flow" kind of guy) not knowing exactly what I was looking for. Then a friend of mine told me about the Engl Powerball 2 and that I really ought to try it out. I did! And I was not disappointed!
The diversity and attack of this amp is off the charts!
The way I can shape my tone and low end, is something I can strongly relate to.
I can get the crystal clear leads I need, and I can get the low end to support my seven strings!
This amp really goes to eleven for me!"
"With Engl amps and cabinets, things just got a lot easier for me. Fast, attack based, precise and heavy sounding no matter which knob I turn. The Engl amps are born heavy sounding and with the mid-range frequency I've been looking for... so for me it's a perfect match!"
With 4 channels and lots of control options, the Savage 120 is both versatile and easy to use. Crystal clear clean tones and killer crunch make this amp a monster that can't be stopped!
"These are the most authentic and transparent amps I have ever played! No matter if you¥re looking for the brightest clean- or the heaviest high gain-sound, the ENGL has got it! By the way itís a MONSTER!!"
"I have played all kinds of 'metal' heads and the day I got my Savage 120 in hand, was the day my quest for ultimate tone ended. This is thee head for me, hell, anything ENGL makes is just the best thing ever. Get one! Once you hear it, it will be a no brainer!"
"I've been using the ENGL Powerball for over three years now and it is, by far, the greatest sounding head I've ever played. I see no reason to ever play anything other than ENGL."
„After years of recording, touring and looking for the right amp I can truly say now, that my ENGL is the definition of sound.“
I play pop, rock, metal my ENGL amp is perfect for every style. The Sovereign is reliable, small and features everything I need!
"For me an amplifier does not only have to deliver a clear tone – it has to be a source of inspiration which attaches something "special" to the sound. I found my holy grail in the combination of the ENGL E-570 Special Edition Preamp and the ENGL E-850/100 power amp. Nothing compares..."
"The powerball can scream out metal riffs, sing a passionate ballad, or even perform a moving aria. The versatility of this amp is unmatched and I will stand for nothing less."
"ENGL amps are all about power without sacrificing brightness or clarity.
Its tones are pure and there’s no unwanted noise underneath the sound you’re using.
Dynamic and yet so steadfastly.
ENGL has proven to be a truly great amp."
"My first expirience with ENGL was actually with a live peformance.
I was blown away by the clearness for both rythm and lead parts.
ENGL simply has just the tone i've been looking for."
Don't waste your time looking for a cool modern guitar sound. Take ENGL and do your thing.
ENGL is the essential part of my sound. ENGL is the combination of a
real German quality and unlimited palette of sound that makes it
possible to implement most impudent and unexpected ideas.
I have played my electric cellos through every kind of amp, but ENGL amps sound AMAZING and are by far my favorite. The fat tone and range of sound I can get from just within my Powerball 100 in itself are extraordinary. I'm excited to be playing through these amps exclusively during my upcoming tour with the Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson "The Immortal" World Tour.
The new ENGL Fireball 100 offers the perfect rock sound for my personal demands
I spent years trying different amp manufacturers until in 2009 I discovered the Fireball and haven't looked back since. The Fireball offers road ready reliability and of course a brutal metal sound! Engl amps deliver everything, from sparkling cleans to crushing lead tones and everything in between.
When I heard the Engl Invader, I was totally blown away by its thick creamy tone, clarity, punch and power. With four programmable channels, it’s so incredibly versatile--I can get everything from a vintage bluesy tone to a spectacularly heavy crunch out of it by just hitting the foot switch. The Invader is the only amp I’ve ever heard that can authentically reproduce live the sounds of the wide variety of vintage and modern amps I used on Devi’s Get Free album…and then some!
"The new powerball 2 blows any other amp i've played with out of the water.
My rhythm chugga chugga cuts through the mix like a hot knife through butter.
Totally approved by the tone police!"
"The Invader reminds me of my first girlfriend: ultra tight, massive low end and louder than everything else."
"Engl Amps are a joy to play. They have the familiarity and uniqueness of the most popular standard amps but stand out alone because of their versatile, fresh and powerful sound through top class technology and sturdy workmanship. An Engl will surprise and inspire you in equal measure."
"The Invader 150 has allowed me the flexibility to find the exact sounds i've been looking for. It allows me unique possibilities in and out of the studio. There is no comparison to the tone and tank-like structure Engl gives its owner!"
Invader delivers the tone, versatility and musical power I was longing for in a guitar amp.
"When the apocalypse is over and the world is in ruins, the only surviving amp will be the Engl Fireball.
It's built like a tank and sounds like a V8-equipped Interceptor, racing down a post-apocalyptic highway.
It delivers the clarity, strength and raw power that you can only find in an Engl!"
"Engl was the obvious choice for me. The heavy and clear sound just blew me away. It was like masturbation for the ears!"
I started using ENGL since the brand was regulary distributed in Italy in the mid nineties, I made tons of tours and I still have my old 660 Special Edition heads perfectly working and great sounding! Now I’m amazed by the Gig Master 15 and 30 tone, I use them a lot for smaller stages and theatres. That’s first class stuff, amazing tone and unbeatable reliability.
Playing with several bands and ranging through different styles of Metal, I always struggled in order to find an amplifier which could give me the chance to feel at ease giving me every sound I may need. Since I tried the Powerball 2, I realized I found the ultimate gear. Now, be it studio or live, with its 4 channels I know there's nothing else I need to take with me in order to have a killer sound: i just plug my cable and I'm ready to rock (and everybody envies my sound, which is cool )!
"I have the pleasure of getting to play many of the world's finest amps on a regular basis. But after spending some time with ENGL's e580/850 rack gear, I was so blown away by the quality and diversity of tones that I had no choice but to build an entire new guitar rig around it. I can't wait to begin writing our next CD around some of these tones. Truly awesome stuff!"
"When we've chosen to play on Engl, we weren't looking for a brand name or a brand image, we wanted "a" sound, and this particular sound is Engl and nothing else, that's what makes Kipling's music way more powerful."
"ENGL rocks! The Special Edition is the most versatile and best sounding amp we've ever played."
I was looking for a punchy sound for a long time, and I found it in the ENGL Power Ball 2! I've been even more seduced by its surgical precision!
"ENGL makes a country amp? You damn right they do...I was blown away at what came out of the speakers at me when I plugged into the RETRO TUBE 50. It has become the signature sound I was looking for as an artist and player. I’ve had every “country” amp made from boutique to standards and the ENGL is miles ahead in tone and quality.”
ENGL Amps have the Intestinal Fortitude, Clarity and Usability that every serious guitarist fantasizes about. If you want to sound like a Metal God, your must-have weapon is an ENGL Amp, plain and simple.
"The little Thunder 50 ENGL gives me heavenly highs, a devilish low and shows the full and true character of my guitar in between. It goes from model pupil to punk brat in seconds, all in a small package. It's just what I need."
"Finally there's an amp that can fulfill each and everyone of my needs. No other amp could give me those killer riffs tones. It is an enourmous wall of sound. Simply the best amp to rock. Period."
"I use the Savage 120. That amp has never left my side thru all the years, still holds it together and still kills everything in it’s way! Truly build for the road, Truly the love of my life!"
"The Definition of a metal sounding amp is ENGL. Once you play it nothing else matters."
Amp: E646 Victor Smolski Limited
"The sound of Korpiklaani is based on rock hard, heavy foundation from where acoustic folk instruments can sing their ancient melodies freely. Big part of the foundation is a strong and rich guitar sound wall. When building that wall, we need the best possible rocks. Finally we found it - ENGL rocks!"
"Over the years, the Savage 120/SE was my secret weapon in the studio. Finally they turned out to be the best live solution as well. I love the versatile sound quality and it delivers what we are all looking for: tons of power, charakter and tone, tone, tone ..."
With Engl I feel I have found the ultimate rock n' roll amp! The Engl Blackmore is capable of covering the wide of variety of sounds needed for my music. It's a two channel amp that really sounds like a 4 channel amp due to the hi-lo gain settings. I can get everything from crystal clean to mega high gain crunch from the Blackmore head! Killer tones! Tight, fast and articulate! Matched with my Engl V30 cab, the tone is unparalleled!
"ENGL Amps and Cabinets allow our creativity to express itself with precision and power, without any limit or restraint. Playing live as well as in a studio situation, ENGL gear reproduces / translates our energy and gives us the most crazy and profound sound we ever worked with. It was just the sound we needed: a brute strength from hell!"
"After 25 years of searching, I have finally found the sound through the Invader! Invade the stage with Engl!"
"The Engl Invader 100 gives us the very precise sound and richness of tone that is needed to execute Týrs music to perfection. It is a very versatile amp with extreme roaring high gain to crystalclear clean sound and everything in between. It is also by far the most reliable amp to go on tour with, and it gives us that extra edge of confidence, when we stand on stage, to know that we are backed by quality equipment. With this mean piece of machinery we will invade and pillage and burn down your village!"
"I have been using ENGL amps for the last 4 years and have loved every moment of it. No other company offers amplifiers with such articulation and versatility. Chest pounding brutality to delicate but powerful cleans all at the touch of a button, ENGL amps offer dynamics that match exactly to the type of atmosphere our music is trying to portray. I believe my search for the ultimate tone has come to an end with ENGL amplification on-top."
It’s tough to sum up my Invader 100 in just one paragraph. I have yet to find an unusable tone from this amp. From gorgeous cleans (channel 1),warm classic crunch (channel 2), ultra tight bottom for rhythms (channel 3), to soaring leads with plenty of mids (channel 4), my Invader 100 truly gives me every sound I need and then some! AMAZING amp!

The Engl Invader has all the sounds I need for Nemesea! Heavy, tight, unique and very powerfull, a great clean tone and the luxery to design and use a lot of different presets/ sounds because of the midi programmable function! The Engl Invader is my dream come true!
"I thought to use the Retro 50 Combo for small locations and club gigs.
I am really impressed by the sound this little amp evolves.
For bigger stages I use it with an additional 1x12' Engl box.
And for open air festivals I plog a 4x12' cabinet to the amp and the power is really awesome!"

that it seems as if it could read my mind !
It sucks the notes directly out of my Head, makes them huge and screams them to the audience.
This secret weapon will change you’re way of playing !"
"Take the roar of Typhon, combine it with the enticing voice of an ancient Siren and give it the captivating looks of a succubus - what you get is a mirage. ENGL took this sonic illusion and brought it to life! A roaring bottom end, singing mids and soaring treble all combined with a sophisticated design and a dauntless look! ENGL is rolling all others are stoned!"
"For several years I played on my ENGL Powerball amp. I love the sounds from clean till heavy gain options. Also the crunch channel sounds very nice for not to heavy rhythm parts or leads. These products impress me!! ENGL it is!!! Even the looks are great!! "
"ENGL is the definition of massive brutality and earth shattering tones! It is not often that an amp can completely blow you away; the ENGL Powerball has completely and ferociously blown me away! The quality and design of ENGL amps is unsurpassed and no other amp company can even come close!"
„ENGL InVader 150 - heaviness redefined! It’s like the holy grail of ultimate tonal versatility packed into a truly reliable amp that’s also built like a tank. And it always sounds good, whether on stage or in the studio. You simply get everything you want - and everything you need: extraordinary and sparkling cleans, crispy crunch tones, brutal high-gain sounds that are punchy but still tight.

"When I play the Engl Powerball, people's faces are ripped off with its pure tube tone, fantastic distortion, great rhythm and crunch sounds, and even surprisingly good clean tone as well. Before this amp, I was having to plug pedal after pedal and I still couldn't find a good satisfying distortion. Now that I have found this amp, I don't have to continue searching for that perfect tone."
"I used the savage 120 for more than 6 years now. I played it all over the world in every situation you can imagine. It never broke, it always sounded better than the rest. My whole style of playing, my tone was changed by this amplifier. And ... if you play live you defenitely can be sure that everybody hears you ... These heads scream!!!"
"One of the best sounds I ever heard. For years I had been looking for a amp that gives me flexibility. I found this in the ENGL SE from blues to heavy."
No other amp can beat my ENGL. Best sound, best workmanship, best look, best company, best distribution in my country. ENGL, what else ... ?

"Engl delivers what I need, a clear and fat sound. Thats what I expect from a modern amp. It cuts trough, extremely brilliant and powerful in every frequency range"
The Engl kick my ass on stage. No other amplifier has this power and this dynamic. In this amplifier, devils and angels live together. Just like me!
"I've been looking for an amp, that would give me a warm sounding tone for the last few years. I found that only in ENGLamps. These monsters also deliver the goods in the studio and provide me with reliable forces when laying down tracks ... I've tried the rest ... but these are the best! "
Engl amps are the next step in the evolution of sound and performance. If you are ready to become a giant slayer, this is the tool you'll need for all battles.
When I first plugged in I thought, hell this is just that sound !
The Sound I always wanted, it´s aggressive, loud but totally dynamic!
It sings, it screams, it´s just a wall of sound! It doesn´t matter if it´s live or in the studio, the Engl Blackmore Signature E650 delivers perfectly and in every situation!
I never had a better amplifier. They are not just powerful but have their own character and plenty of tone. It´s like a dream come true!
"I must say that I have finally found the Rock workhorse of the next decade. Engl amps are pure pleasure to my ears, both on a tonal and soulful level. My Fireball can dial in any sound I need live or in the studio. Everyone should own an Engl."
"I've been playing my Savage 120 both live and in the studio for many years and knew from the first moment that this was my sound. Powerful, with hard attack, yet clear and open, so the sound of the actual strings cut trough even at the most extreme gain levels. The Savage is also very versatile in the studio with it's four channels and selection of nuances."
"Whether In the studio or on stage, Engl Amps have all the Punch, Clarity, and Tone to cut through. No other amp I've played has been so versatile!
Stop messing around with other inferior amp/effects pedal combinations. Engl is the real deal right out of the box!
Engl Amps will always be a part of my signature sound."
"I work as a professional studio/live guitarist and guitar teacher for many years and i was always looking for the perfect amp. Through the years I played a lot of different amps, but the Fireball gives me exactly what I need: An awesome rhythm sound that makes my playing more tight than it was ever before, even if the riffs are faster than the speed of light, and a brilliant singing lead sound! Congratulation to this great amp! Thrash with class."
"For me Engl provides definitely the ultimate equipment for any studio and live situation. Since I am using Engl Amps, I don't want to miss that great tone anymore."
"Special Edition gives me all I want in any situation. No matter if I play Modern Jazz, World Music, Electro in a Jazz Club or Rock on big Stage ..."
"When I plugged into my ENGL Blackmore E 650, it was love at first riff. Forget the pedals, forget the effects, this metal doll needs no assistance. Cuts like a switchblade, demands respect like Godzilla, ENGL makes me feel like one of the most dangerous guns in the land; I may not always win the war, but I promise you the battles will be loud."
"The invader is a killer amp. The moment you plug it in it destroys everything else!"
"The Engl InVader is the best metal amp in the universe!!! I've played numerous 'metal' amps and the InVader blows them away. No other amp has been as versatile for my needs as this thing, it just walks all over... wait scratch that... the InVader kicks the balls out of everything. The amp is so articulate and punchy without needing any extra pedals that were a must with those other amps. Amazing, simply amazing, even the 'dumbed down' Z-9 pedal I use lets me specify the extra features that I need live. I will be playing the InVader until ENGL comes up with something even better!!!"
I've been hooked on Engl since the first time I plugged into the Savage 120. I literally plugged into it, changed a few dials and recorded an entire cd with it...on the spot! I was blown away by the incredibly articulate clean crunch and ferocious bite of the amp. I now play an SE head with the XXL and standard Engl cabs. There isn't a heavier, more versatile amp out there. Engl is the new sound of Heavy Metal.
“My Ironball delivers me all the sounds I need on stage and in the studio. I love the clarity, the power and the tightness of this little Lunchbox. After almost 30 years my quest for the perfect tone is finally over. “
"The versatility of those amps is phenomenal, you can get any sound you want. I play the Powerball II and what can I say, great sound, great punch, great design, this head is a monster. ENGL, you won't regret it!"
"Those amps have the clear, punchy and the defined sound that I expect from a perfect amp. ENGL is a great brand and for me the master of sound!"
"For some years now we been using Engl Special Editon heads along with the Engl cabs. It's the ultimate machine for us when it can change from a brutal kickass rythmtone to a creamy singing leadvoice and everything between in just one flick!! It has no bounderies!!!"
"The Invader 100 is the best amp I've played through. I get the heaviest, balls out tone while the high end shines through crystal clear. These amps definitely go to 11!"
"I first discovered ENGL Amps during the recording of the Echoes Of Eternity album "The Forgotten Goddess." I fell in love with the clear, heavy crunch and warm tube tone. I had been using solid state amps for years, but once I had my face ripped off by the tone of a Savage 120, there was no going back. I've since played through just about every amp you can think of ... but none of them even come close to the power, crunch, warmth and clarity of an ENGL."
"I have always had to fight with different aspects of my tone. If I had a great clean sound, my lead tone suffered. If I dialed in a great crunch tone, the clean would be mediocre. With the Invader, all the tone is there, with no compromises. Thank you Engl!"
I've gone through many amplifiers trying to my ideal tone and they just were not quite there ... until I got to ENGL! Crystal clear pristine clean channel, brutal and dynamic rhythm channel, and liquid smooth leads! Everything I could ask for! The Invader 100 never ceases to amaze me. The guys at ENGL really have made the perfect amps!
“I simply love the ENGL Ironball E606 for its compact, versatile functionality: the clean settings producing such a warm, silken sound with mysterious feel and touch. Boost it and you get a fully saturated sound experience, darker, richer, roaring, and scorching with the full blast of a thundering sound storm.”
The quest for the perfect tone has ended, and I am addicted. Every time I plug into my ENGL I am blown away by its sheer power, clarity, and reliability. Whether it be in the jam spot, on stage, or in the studio - ENGL amps always pull through at the top leaving a wake of destruction in its path. I can finally step on stage every night with full confidence in my tone with ENGL amps behind me.
After being let down by all the other popular amplifiers, I've finally found my home in the rich, powerful Engl tone. Looking for that big professional sound onstage or in the studio? I am confident you will find it in an Engl.
The Engl Retro Tube combo is a very versatile amplifier.
In any style of music the Retro Tube will provide you with a great guitar sound and is very easy to handle.
Thank you very much for the endorsement!
"The range and tone that ENGL brings out in my playing is uncomparable. Simply said, ENGL have the BEST AMPS EVER."
"Engl-Amps have the sickest sound. There is only one Amplifier company I would ever consider, and that is ENGL. ENGL brings the best out in my guitar playing."
"ENGL amps cover every angle of my music, from heavy riffs to lightning solos, including awesome clean tones. It's the best modern amp I know"
"Working with an ENGL amp your never really trying to find a decent sound.
The sound is great from the start and your only using the switches
and controls to make it perfect. I used an ENGL on both my solo albums
and the incredible thing is: No matter if it’s the leads, the rhythm or the
clean sound – it´s all there, the heaviness, the power, the beauty - all in
If you wanna play an ENGL amp, you´ll have to get a firearm license first. I got mine now!
Thanx to ENGL for this wicked piece of craftmenship and giving me a chance to become a member of the ENGL family!
"The ENGL Powerball II delivers exactly what i want to hear."
With the first tone Engl amps convinced us all across the board. The clear, brilliant, but still very agressive character in the highgain section is by this time an inherent part within our bandsound and creates the necessary pressure for our music. Despite of his quite puristic structure the E625/635 Fireball head allows us to play every kind of musical style, never let us down and has an expressive design.
With Bleeding Gods I need an extreme amp with
full high gain, boost and power. Only ENGL can convince me!
"The ENGL amplifiers inspire every electric guitar. They stimulate guitarist’s emotions and open listener’s imagination. I have been using this amplifiers for 13 years (11 years – Blackmore Signature and 2 years – Steve Morse Signature) and I am convinced that other amplifiers pose no threat to them."
"My ENGL Powerball is just the perfect all-rounder. No other amp succeeded in convincing me in such a manner. Without it, breakdowns have never been sounding so intense and brutal as well as clean parts have never been developing such brilliance and warmth. Whether live or in the studio: ENGL has always been the best gear for our music!"
"I'm honored to be part of the Engl family! I have been using these weapons for a long time now and i haven't found anything more lethal as for reaping victims on stage or recording killing tracks in studio ... simple, direct, aggressive and safe."
As a guitarist I spent much time trying to find the right Sound and reliable equipment that not only works in the studio but also on stage. Since I own the ENGL Ritchie Blackmore and the ENGL 4x12 Cabinet (E412SS), the search has come to an end and I can finally concentrate on songwriting. From soft clean-sounds to accentuated and bolshy riffs the ENGL can do anything. The first choice for everyone who has an understanding of music! Engl rocks!
"Power, punch and versatility ñ thatís why I fell in love with ENGL-amps. In FEUERENGEL, we need a noise-free, ass-kicking sound with heavy bottom. With ENGL amps I am able to realise exactly that sound I have been looking after for years."
"ENGL amps: the best sound I ever had. Sounds from crystal-clear to brutal-punchy are possible and they stay transparent all the time. And then there is a flexbility no other brand offers. I will never play anything else again."
"Engl amps always sound the same no matter where and when we turn it on. he gain is earth shattering, the clean is crisp and clear, it's a brilliant sound we can depend on"
"I've always had a facination with technology, mechanisms and art, you could say it's almost a fetish, the Powerball amp satisfies all 3 mixed in one beautiful machine. I finally have the sound I want my guitar to make and this amplifier is definitely the portal for me to find songs yet to be discovered within my own mind."
Engl Amps deliver great tone without any hassle. These amps sound amazing! Plug in and crush!
We have played on lots of different backlines, but only when there's an ENGL
involved, we know we'll get killer sound! ENGL never let us down!
"The Powerball Amp is the main part of my sound. This amp has got huge pressure, but still a lot of reserves. Those are needed of me, to create my sound. This is a really nice amp, congratulations to the ENGL develop team."
The never ending search for brutal tone is over! My Engl Victor Smolski Limited Edition E646 100W Amplifier Head delivers!
It has more versatile options for crunch and clean tones than I could ever ask for in a single amp head. It does it all, from pristine cleans to the heaviest of gain and everything in between. I paired this head with the Engl Z-9 footswitch enabling me to have total control over all 4 channels and other onboard features.
Bottom line: like Heavy Metal, this head is addictive! Once you play it, nothing else quite fills the void.
Thank You Engl for your expertise in guitar amplification.
Engl Amps cover all the different sounds that you might think of. You can use it as well live as in the studio, and it’s always reliable.
The special edition is the perfect amp for a band like Red Eyes!
The Engl Victor Smolski Head is the best amp for modern leadtones i know. Each time we played live it wasn`t a matter to get a great tone that cuts thru the mix, without losing much time getting lost in finding the right settings.
"Since I played ENGL amps for the first time, I'm addicted to them. They deliver fat and punchy mids and lows, silken treble and presence sharp as a knife to cut through any style of metal music. That's why I only use ENGL amps and cabinets. They assure great tone and unique sound anywhere, anytime."
"The Engl Powerball is a beast unleashed. The search is over. Now i got the roaring sound i've been looking for, from the best goddamn manufacturer in the biz. It's reliable, it's solid, it's Heavy Metal. I've managed to tame the beast!"
"ENGL amps are unique. The unbelievable heavy tone makes the difference to all other amps out there. I play a Blackmore, a Fireball and got a few Screamers. With very little "movements" you got all the flexibility you need. ENGL really rocks!!!"
"The Retrotube 50 is just exactly the right thing for me. it gives me a lot of different sounds and opportunities in one amp. So finally i don´t need any Distortion Pedals anymore :-) "
Raw, pure, power and diversity are the key words for ENGL-amps. It’s definitely the best amplifier for metal. The sound is amazing and the music gets automatically more energy. What me surprised a lot, is that ENGL-amps are really appropriate for rock, blues and jazz to! The clean as the gain is brilliant! It’s a characteristic sound, if you try a ENGL-amp, you don’t want to use something else.
The Fireball totally blew me away.
All the Engl amps have their own uniqueness and the quality is second to none.
"The most beautiful clean sound I have ever heard, the lead channels are so powerfull! And it's easy to use!!! That's the way I want Rock 'n' Roll!"
"I’ve used a lot of the other amp brands out there in the past and have never been completely satisfied, but when I first tried out an Engl I was sold on the spot. I could tell right away that Engl crafts the most high quality tube amplification on the market today, and don’t forget about that amazing tone! Now I’m proud to say that I finally have that tone for myself in the form of the beautiful Special Edition head. This amp is everything I could need for the studio and onstage! From glassy vintage clean and crunch tones… to tight, massive high gain and I can’t leave out the beautiful, cutting, sweet solo tones… Engl has it all covered! I’m so happy to be a proud Engl user for life!"
"The Powerball Amp is the main part of my sound. This amp has got huge pressure, but still a lot of reserves. Those are needed of me, to create my sound. This is a really nice amp, congratulations to the ENGL develop team."
"I have been using my ENGL midi Preamp E580, E939/60 Poweramp and ENGL 412 cabinets with V30 for many years. This is the set with the most versatile sound in the world. I use it for recordings and touring with pop artists and it works incredible on my CDs and lives of instrumental music. My "Screamer 50 combo" is perfect for clubs and little places. In my opinion, this is the unique set in rack format, that sounds with the precision of an amp."
"All the controls in my feet for all the sounds that I have in my head."
"I've been on the lookout for the perfect amp and was never really satisfied before I came across Engl. The sound and the design are like tailor made for me. It's nice with a company that understands to put the great sound inside the products right away instead of relying on external effects to create magic."
I'm an ENGL freak since I bought myself an ENGL Road back in the last century. That was about that time when I threw away my Tube Screamer.
"Engl Amps satisfies all my musical needs. From heavy riffing, to solos and clean sounds. There are no limits with Engl Amps! This amp backs me up in every musical situation!!!"
ENGL FIREBALL 100
huge, clear metal sound on stage and in the studio.
The ENGL FIREBALL 100 sounds really powerful! Best amp for studio and touring.
"I've always dreamed of an amp that delivers the most brutal gain tones which is tight, heavy as hell, yet precise and smooth and ENGL made my dream come true! I currently play the ENGL E670 Special Edition head with 4x12" Pro cabs loaded with Celestion Vintage 30s and this combination delivers it all! It brings you a world of tones! From shimmering cleans to crunchy distortions to brutal high gains and everything in between. Absolutely versatile yet with no compromise in brutality! It is my privilege to be part of the ENGL family."
"As an admitted gear enthusiast, ENGL is the first amp out of many that I can get ALL my tones in one box; no pedals or processing needed. Crystal clean, classic crunch, tight brutal rhythms and smooth singing leads, it's all in there. I can just plug straight in, hit the switch and start melting faces. The ENGL SE is a genius piece of modern engineering with so many useful features to shape your own personal tone. Not to mention these things are built like a rock and tour approved."
It was early 2006 when I first got to play an Engl-amplifier. It was the Richie Blackmore Signature Model and I was amazed about it's rich, punchy and clear sound. I have used Engl since then. Before that I used lots of gain in my sound but with Engl I realized that it was totally unnecessary. Now I use the Invader 100 and I couldn't be happier with it. It gives me so much opportunities to move from one sound to another. Murdershock songs contain really fast riffs with lots of alternate picking and the Invader just makes every pick come right out clear and powerful. It makes me a better player"
What should I preach? Engl Amps are THE GATE to Heavy Metal! My E 530 Tube Preamp together with my E 840/50 Tube Poweramp are the sound machines I was looking for! These amps have a amazing clarity and are versatile, fast responding and build for the road. I love the rich and sparkling harmonics, just right for my Les Paul. The adjustment of the hi-gain mode allows me to do matchless squeals. And the rugged design of this 19’’units seems indestructible. I prefer Engl products because of its choice quality Made In Germany.
I will never forget the first time I tried my Invader 100. From the get go I knew this was the amp I had been waiting for. The one that slays them all.
I couldn't expect more from a head than what I got with the E670. From pristine clean to punishing distortion, topped by a plethora of features. It's the ultimate amp!
"The Powerball provides exactly the kind of KABOOM! I need: Lots of balls in the lows, lots of character in the rest. And it's versatile, too: Killer leads, beautiful clean stuff, metal massacre - and I might even be able to play in blues bars when I'm 64. But for now it's all Rock'n'Roll, best served with my Powerball."<//a><//a>
"Engl, for me, equals a wall of sound. Sound with great definition and awesome tone. It's one of the best tube-amps available. My main goal for getting that great sound is to create a heavy and low oomph! The amps and cabinets provided by Engl give me just that and a lot more. Engl lives up to their promises and even exceeds them if you ask me. If you're a metal guitarist, Engl is the way to go!"
"Engl is by far the "heaviest" metal amp. It sounds unique and acts as a perfect tool both for studio and stage."<//a><//a>
I just love the warmth and clearness of the E358 Classic Combo`s Clean Channel. And I always thought these guys only build amps to forge the heaviest Metal....
A extreme band needs a extreme amp.
Extremer than extreme...
That's why Houwitser uses the Powerball.
Only ENGL can make that happen...
A extreme band needs a extreme amp.
Extremer than extreme...
That's why Houwitser uses the Powerball.

"ENGL is the best choice and the most versatile amp I've ever played. Crispy highs, smooth mids and an incredible low end that you have to hear yourself to believe. No chance for any competitor in the market."
"With the Invader 100 I have made the right choice for me and Sniper. A killer sound and an easy handling characterize this outstanding Amp. The perfect choice for both studio and stage performance! Hell Yeah!!!"<//a><//a>
"A crystal clear and brilliant sound combining endless power and explosion of tone at the same time! On top an enormous versatility! The Invader 100: A masterpiece of German engineering and the perfect choice for me and every other guitarist playing extreme music!"
"These amps are incredible! Most of the time I don't even know where my knobs are set to and to be honest, it doesn't matter because these things sound mind-blowing regardless of the settings. Easily one of the best looking, best sounding, and best tone-for-dollar amps you could ever own!! These products are the definition of perfectly engineered tone.."
„The sound is incomparable and clear.
If you are on stage or in the studio , you always can count on your ENGL!
Furthermore ENGL is very reliable on tour, because it’s a tough amp. It endures huge loads like coldness and heat.
Every metal guitar player needs an ENGL amp to convince their crowd!!!
My favorite amp is VICTOR SMOLSKI , because it hamonises great with my Jackson guitars.“
„ENGL Amps is an essential part of my sound.
As a guitarist and luthier I can say that I have
found a sound that encompases my playing
style as well as the characteristics of my
instrument and with tons of power!
Only ENGL gives me the crisp and direct
responsiveness that I up until now have never seen
anywhere else. These amps drives my
MONSTA sound to the maximum!“
"Since the first time i played the Invader 150, i haven't come across and head to deliver even close to what this beast can. Endless tone options and connectivity was key for me in choosing this head. No more searching for tones when you get your hands on this. Glad to be a part of the world's best amp company of all time."
Pure tone, maximum pressure and a massive wall of sound - these are my requirements to amps and cabinets. Finally I found the equipment which fits my demands perfectly - the ENGL XXL Pro Cabinets and Tube Rack Gear."
The Engl Gigmaster 15 Head is more than just a small package...its the most versatile and massive sounding amps ive ever played. From crystal clean tones to ungodly gain...and everything else that lies in between. This is the sound I have waited for. Engl amps are the perfect fit for my music...in the studio or gigging. Im honored to join the Engl family!
Engl = tone. Period!!!

Ganz besonders mit der Überwaffe INVADER.
Versatility, consistency and SOUND! I can get any sound I imagine out of my Powerball and it always sounds great! On stage and in studio, it always cuts through the mix! The EQ is very responsive and you can really sculpt your sound to the finest detail.
"The Powerball Head provides me with the perfect metalsound: Straight into the face, how it's supposed to be. Especially with my drop tuned guitar it sounds brutally good and the harmonics sound amazing, too. It's a must have for every metal guitar player"
"The first day I tried the ENGL I started to believe!!! This amp is like a God-given Tzirufim, empowering me to breathe life into clay ..."
"The amazing boost and force of these ENGL 100% turbo tube monsters is incredible! They give a great attack with very well defined lows and clear highs. Try it out: you just can't get a bad tone out of these amps! Don't need any distortion effects or other crap ... the amp itself is the Generator of the Ultimate kick ass Metal Tone! So if you play metal, you urgently need to have an ENGL ... Bet you won't regret!"

"The idea of playing an ENGL amp was very exciting. But then having one in front of ourselves and let our heavy riffs run through the amp was one of the most amazing experiences we've ever had. ENGL amps are reliable, powerful and state of the art; all in one. There's no better feeling than being blown off stage and having such a killer amp behind you. The choice couldn't have been better."
"The Invader 100 sounds fantastic! I am very pleased with it."

One head, one cab and one huge sound, immeditately. I used and tested a lot of other heads. But the E650 gives me the feeling like being home. Great bottom,
and more gain as I need with a clear transparency. And I don' t have to spend a lot of time to find the sound I prefer. If you don't know how to setup an ENGL ... every tone knob to the middle, done!
Every one who met me will say, that I never was satisfied with things middle class.
When I was first allowed to try out the E650, I was hooked. The E650 yells at you like a hungry predator. He is in his aggressive tone still sophisticated and tames very well. Exactly these features makes it my number one.
"The Essence of Rock'n'Roll is to trust yourself to be your own guide. Don't listen to what WE say, play ENGL-Amps for yourself and start believing."
"The Savage 120 really kicks my ass on stage, it's a real monster! The tone,the high-gain lead and crystal-clear clean modes, the output, it's all there.I also used it for the recordings of the brand new album of Mystic Prophecy that is entitled "FIREANGEL" and I can say that we literally created a WALL of brutal guitars!! The Savage is also the perfect amp for recording because you can get 100% clean, warm and very high output signal and it definitely takes your performance to a new level! You can't ask for more from an amp. I feel very proud and honored to be part of the ENGL family. ENGL are the best amps.Period."
"For many years I was searching for a sound which cuts trough the wall of sound which you encounter on-stage. Finally my search came to an end. ENGL gives me the feedback I need and the sturdy design ensures massive endurability. The clear and and self explaining design guarantees you the greatest comfort. There are no better amps in the world!!!!"
