    Hey, you gear nerds and geeks! :)
    I actually wanted to post a clip 50 vs 100watt version but since i already recorded the Savage, i thought i put the three together... It was recorded with the Grossmann Sg-Box (Celestion G12k100/Shure sm7b) using my Dean Cadikill, loaded with a Seymour Duncan Sh13. I didn't try to make them sound the same. The Savage is actually a little brighter than the others with its setting. Wysiwyg, settingwise in the video. So there is some room for adjustments with the pots :)

    Cheers!

    The Engl Savage wins for me by far! A nice bass with it in the mix and it would be a really great tone.

    Yeah 5153's need a bit moire highs to be honest. I like the mini more than the big one though.

    Actually this clip is a little unfair, cause the 5153s are the better amps!:D

    The presence is way too low on the 5150 IIIs. Too dark/smooth set like that.

    Get that shitty dimebucker out of you're guitar, switch it for a SH-6/SH-5.

    The Savage sounds much better IMO. More grind but less thick sounding ( probably because how you set the amps )

    The last two Dying Fetus records were recorded with the Savage and have the best tone ever so in a way I would pick a Savage over the 5150iii even if it sounded better here. :lol:

    The 5153s are GREAT.
    Yes!
    Depends on what you like
    I agree! :)
    Hey ForgottenEffigy,
    i have more than one guitar, so there's no need to change the Pickup :)
    Yes :)
    There's a few more things, you have to take care of when producing a CD, except for the Amp...
    But you seem to be biased :)

    Although I like the basic tone of Engl, I think that palm mutes sound more defined/pronounced with 5153...

    The Savage has a ton of garbage in the top end. If the presence were higher on the EVH amps, they would have smoked the Engl like baby-backs.
