    Had nothing to do today so I did a small video of a song played through my ENGL 570 preamp. Enjoy:

    Excellent, very similar to the E530. Drop Bb tuning?

    I love that Ibanez! I wish that was a production model.

    Glad you guys liked it. The strings I think are 11,15,18,30,44,60 and it's as Shane says drop Bb tuning.

    The guitar is a Ibanez RG08 limited edition.

    Goddamn, that was sweet. Now I'm def gassing for one of those. How does it compare to other types of engls, especially the Savage?

    Dude if you like that sound you will probably love every single ENGL amp out there, Powerball Savage Invader, fireball they sound fairly alike. I'm a Savage guy myself but now I can't decide which of the setups sound best.

    dude, I used to be the biggest Engl fan (and still really like most of their amps), but the powerball, savage, invader are no way alike, not even similar!

    you could perhaps say that the blackmore is kinda similar to a savage (still pretty different), but the maps you meantioned really sound totally different from each other...

    but...
    nice tone you got there!

    I know they are different sounding, I've owned both the Powerball, E530 and currently owning Savage(and have a buddy owning a Invader) but the voicing is similiar in all ENGL amps.

    Thanks for the comments! :D

    Yeah, the Savage is the only one that appeals to me, the Powerball seems to grainy, the Blackmore too rock-y, and the Invader too djenty - but from what I've heard, they all really have that characteristic upper mid grind!
