    I had the first generation of the Savage and I absolutely hated it. It sounded thin and didn't have any real volume to the sound. When I say volume I don't mean actual DB's, sounded weak. I had it looked over by my tech and it came out with a clean bill of health but still sounded terrible.

    Fast forward a couple of years and I ended up with an Invader and a Special Edition, now those two just flat out destroy. Love Engl now. Curious to check the new one out.

    I’ve got a Special Edition EL34 version. I agree, it’s a truly amazing amp. If I recall Engl history correctly, Blackmore played a Savage and loved it. Some of that went into the signature Blackmore amp. I saw Ritchie with Rainbow in 2016 and last month, and he is playing a old Engl Sovereign 1x12 combo. Very vintage British sounding amp.

    I’ve got three Engl’s. All three are lifers. No complaints at all.

    I have a Savage 60w Mk.I and I simply love it. A few years ago I've bought the KT77 (EL34 originally) retube kit from eurotubes and I simply love the amp.

    Sometimes I feel like my ENGL is not being used properly because I'm noodling all the time with the 5153 50w head or the modified Major. But everytime I play the damn thing I have a huge smile in the face like "hell yeah!".

    Great vid man, keep the good work.
