- A very powerful tight sounding amp Review by Jeremy Norton
Value Quality Features
This is my first ENGL and I must say that the sound quality is excellent - clean, tight and articulate on the clean channels and punchy, but still tight on the OD channels. The distortion is very nice sounding - natural and smooth.
The amp is very unforgiving of sloppy playing style, it is definitely not a beginner amp by any means.
The controls are good, but I would prefer separate EQ for each channels but it is shared.
The quality is phenomenal in both build and sound - to be expected from a hand built german amplifier. I have had mine for a couple years now with absolutely no issues. (Posted on 6/6/2012)
