A modded E650 with EL34 power amp tubes.
The Engl E651 was developed as a modified version of an E650 Blackmore Signature head, originally used from 2006 as a studio amp by Gary Moore. This first unit was eventually returned to Engl upon Garyâs passing. Although based on the E650, Engl amp designer Horst Langer incorporated some modifications such as replacing the 5881 power amp tubes and voicing with EL34âs. Within a short time, word got out about this version and artists such as Doug Aldrich, Ken Hammer, Paul Stanley and Scott Gorham put in their requests. Paul Stanley and Ken Hammer are still actively using their amps live on stage.

Comments about Engl E651 100W Guitar Tube Head:
Wow is this an improvement from the original Blackmore head. This is a modded Blackmore with El34 tubes. The clean channel is amazingly clean with great sparkle, especially when you hit the bright boost. Hit this channel in high gain mode for a bit of grit. The lead channel smokes with harmonics for days and very tight with all the high mids you can dream of. The big improvement here from the Blackmore is it does not have the ice picky high mids that the Blackmore had (That is why I sent the Blackmore back). In the lead channel low gain mode you have everything from classic rock to 80's glam metal. In high gain mode it's the low gain sound with more mids and sustain for days! The effects loop sounds amazing, my reverb and delay sings through better than most amps I've had and tried. The only thing I did not like is the shape feature (Button), which is a low mid boost. I have heard this feature sound amazing on other Engl amps, but here it sounds too dark and distant. I almost gave this amp four stars for this reason. But, I'm overall so happy with this amp....Ehh, so I don't use the shape feature......Still, get this amp!
