Yes, you heard me! I traded my Engl Powerball half stack away smile.gif
As I've said earlier, the Engl is amazing but I needed something else..
It was too big and to loud for me, and I needed something with a little extra "audiotone" smile.gif

Now is your chance to guess what amp I traded it for (Trond Vold, shaddap! tongue.gif)

I'm gonna give you a few options to vote for, so vote what amp you think I traded it for in the poll smile.gif

Come on people, take your best shot biggrin.gif

I'll post some audioclips tomorrow or during the weekend, to make it a bit easier for you wink.gif


PS: You can see what amp it is at page 2 wink.gif

Seems you're on the trading spree mate smile.gif I wonder what could it be... I don't think it's Mesa.. Maybe Framus or Soldano - am I right? biggrin.gif

If you had a "too loud" problem with the Engl, you probably got a Lonestar Special or a 5:50. Both have low wattage options, and both sound sweet. I wonder why you traded the Engl if you had an attenuator? Just curious. Either way, I hope you found "your tone". smile.gif

The lonestar does 5 watts as well but you seem to like gain, definitely more gain on the 5:50 so I would guess that
Congrats on the new amp whichever one it is

Thats what I was thinking, but I went with the lonestar because I think it's a more fair trade..

Thanks! I'm very happy with the sound in my new amp,
so it's safe to say I've found a few of "my tones" smile.gif
