    Nice man! Really good sounding amp. We recorded Dragonlord's Black Wings of Destiny with that, and a Savage 120. Good amps. Hey, I see you're getting a Mesa, no Krank head as well? They're sweet too you know!:headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

    Drooling... Where does one find an Engl in the USA? I've never played one and I'm dying to try one. All those Northern Euros own everyone with these suckers, and I think Fred Nordstrom uses them on pretty much everything. Let us know how you like it!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqbvHPHbAas this was after only a couple minutes of tweaking with it....doesn't sound as good on youtube either..also the gain is only half way up!

    I don't like the Powerball for thrash. They are gain monsters though! Play some huge inverted 5ths on them, that's where they shine IMHO.

    How does that amp sound with... about half as much gain? I never play with that much drive and I'm not likely to be able to try one myself anytime soon.

    That is one sweet amp. There was a dealer here in Chicago that used to carry them, and the heads were reasonably priced. But they would rape you on the matching cab. But an excellent score.

    engls are nice, Chris Broderick is endorsed by them, and he gets a great tone with it.
