    I don't normally record videos, but I've read a lot about Engl Savage and Blackmore being the same amps or totally different so I had the chance to borrow the Blackmore and put it against my Savage.

    That's the very typical sound of the Engl 4x12 cab we're hearing IMO

    Indeed, they're quite similar... But if I HAD to choose I'd grab a Savage - just seems a tiny bit more lively and less scooped than Blackmore...

    The difference is almost nothing! An A/B clip would be great

    That was hilarious :lol: Preferring the Savage, just sounds more aggressive with a bit more "bite" than the Blackmore, but they're pretty close!

    Damn!

    I am not getting similar tones with my savage. And yes i had nailed good tones with the blackmore.
    My savage sounds muddy in the mids and treble/precense sounds similar to powerball 2.
    Should the depth boost be used or not?
