    Ever since this amp was announced I have been watching all the usual places to find one to try. Anyone seen one in the wild? If it sounds half as good as it looks I am sold.

    No replies on this or any other forum. I guess Marty may not be getting a renewal of that deal..lol

    First I have heard of it. It looks pretty slick! I will have to look into it although I am currently not in the market for a new amp.

    Looks like it doesn't ship until August 3, 2018, with a street price of $1,999. That's probably why none of us here have played it yet. Looks promising.

    Good catch. That explains it. I thought it had shipped a while back. Guess I am going to have to wait. I will say it is a damn nice looking amp. Looking forward to trying one at some point.

    Sounds like it's supposed to be a hodgepodge of a lot of Engl amps. The Invader, The Powerball (that's gonna be a no from me, dawg), the Morse, the Special Edition...

    FWIW I thought Marty's tone on Inferno was his best rhythm tone ever (well that or Loudspeaker) so maybe it's onto something. :lol:

    I have limited experience with ENGL amps. Never played a real powerball but I loved a Kemper profile of the Invader I found.

    Marty kinda looks like one of my ex girlfriends from college if I blur my eyes a little.

    Looks like I don't have to wait long. Choptones has a profile pack already out.

    How you liking the kemper? Has it fulfilled your amp GAS?

    I’m finding, at least as far as live / rehearsal, I’m using one model on my helix. 2204 has been getting it done for me, running into an EHX 44magnum power amp/pedal and into my 4x12.

    it absolutely has delivered on everything it promised. I run it through the return on my Jubilee full stack and I just can't get enough of it.

    Thought you guys may want to know that I bought the Choptones profiles of this amp. Run through my V30 loaded Jubilee stack they sound incredible. I would describe the amp as being very similar to the Soldano SLO100 when boosted. The clean and crunch tones cover a lot of ground.

    There is hope for everyone. I saw a documentary....sex robots will replace women in 10 years...and they all look like super models, screw like pornstars, will have AI,..... they will even make you a sandwich, leave you cab fare and wash your car.....help is on the way.
