    Whoa , just happened to see this vid on YT. This little 50w kicks but and when I think Engl , I think of high gain metal.
    This amp sounds pretty damn good. better than I expected in lower gain blues style.:hbang:

    This company I heard of by a friend who says he knows the maker. I couldn't remember their name but I happened to find them. Nice brown tone hear to me.

    If I were to do another Engl amp, I'd just grab the 'lowly' Thunder.

    Wow listen to the audio of the "Dirty Boy" 6,7, and 8 . I am more a fan of the VH1 tone than the VHll but cool amp with a variac.
    Hear mp3 Audio of the Dirty Boy

    Absolutely, The Coyote and Scorpion are Tone monsters.

    Also 65amps makes some outstanding models

    both amps sound really good, especially the method in which you recorded them. Did you mention that and I missed it?

    With headphones on my computer the sound was very clear and articulate on the tone....nice

    I was wondering if I was the only one who discovered this amp.

    I hesitate to call it a real 3 channel amp (and the EQ settings end up looking very different than on most other amps (no biggie)). Its just a very "organic" tube amp.

    ...and by some simple tube substitution you can change the character and balance between the "channels" or modes...and I'm becoming a fan of 5881's!

    I may buy and sell other amps - but I plan on retiring with this one.

    I almost literally start salivating when I see Mojave, like Pavlov's dog.

    Yeah, Engl is mostly known for their extremely precise and cynical amps, but the Thunder is a bit different. Sounds very organic and looose compared to their bigger cousins.

    Loose yet tracks articulately very well when soloing. I like the looser organic response.

    I too had no idea about this amp in their line up. Never really looked due to their higher gain offerings which I have no interest in with any maufacturer.

    Bet I end up with one. Lil phucker sings when soloing..nice harmonics and overtones popping out as saturation increases. I checked more vids and they were all very similar in character. My kind of "other amp".:D

    Oh yeah, the Thunder is very articulate. I was comparing it to their other amps, which are some of the most articulate and tightest amps on the planet, almost to a fault.

    If you don't mind a combo, the Engl Raider gets a lot of love.

    And the Screamer is good if you want something with slightly more edge and gain.

    Yeah those are cool too.

    The Thunder 50 though is really doing it for me. That's a great sound clean and saturated. It has that give I like but man does it track soloing. Daem!
