..or my tubes are worn. So I sold my Powerball II and got used Engl Savage 120. I had Engl Blackmore few years back and it sounded great. I thought that the savage would be pretty close to blackmore by it's tonality. But it sounded very similar to powerball with the muddy low mids with no beef it the 80hz area. Top end was not good at all. Maybe it is the tubes? When tapping right TAD 6550 power tube i got somekind of a thumb and rattling noise from the speakers.
