Hi crew.

I'm thinking of getting this combo,
feats are top notch to say the least.
Anybody has experience with this amp?

Thanks smile.gif

Disregarding your question for a second.

What is your reason for wanting another amp?

I always wanted a rack, but to many cables and stuff, guitar plugged into a combo is best sound. even a combo with a few pedals on the ground is much easier to use. smile.gif.

How much do these ENGL's go for anyways? $2000?

It sure is a monster amp, if that doesn't blow away the audience, I don't know what can biggrin.gif


On the otherside - most 2x12 all-tubers are between 40-50Kg, and that is a lot. As I can see, this amp doesn't really have side handles, so how will you carry it unsure.gif

I'd say between 30-40 kg in general, but sure, it's still heavy. I don't know about this specific ENGL though since I never even saw one.

I think it's a great amp, I'm just pointing out the fact that it can be only carried by the upper handle, and that means only one person can carry it. If the amp is ~40Kg, then that can be a very big load.

Yes, that's true and having to move a 2x12 is hard labor. My bandmate has one (a Marshall) and my half stack is more portable than his 2x12.

That's one possibility.
EDIT: Even if the amp isn't pre drilled for a set of wheels it's always doable.

It's actually 32kg and isn't that much,
compared with Egnater Tourmaster (another option I was considering)
same thing 2x12,all tube,4 channels but weights 42kg huh.gif

Plus you can always add extra handles and wheels,
no problem at all. smile.gif

You're right, drilling is always an option. Although with that monster amp, I would gladly carry it around even on foot, just for the sake of that sweet sound smile.gif

Just like that. smile.gif

Best thing is it has full Midi Support installed
so it's 127 sounds under your foot,
not just 4 using 4 channels.

And I did drilling on an old Peavey,sold it tho,
2 handles on the sides and wheels,piece of cake
and saves you lot of troubles. smile.gif
