Burn up the stage with dark, lower midrange-focused tone.

The Engl Fireball 100 guitar amp head offers all essential sound features in addition to a practical, clear layout for all players who appreciate straightforward structures. In its cool "black magic" optical appearance the amplifier head delivers a mighty bottom end punch well-suited for playing power chords and solos with precise accentuation, courtesy of its powerful 6L6GC 100-Watt power amp. Sparkling clean sounds and every imaginable nuance between Clean and Hi Gain Lead tones belong to the repertoire of the Engl Fireball 100 amp. Other trademark features include two master volume controls A and B, electronic power amp monitoring, and a variable / switchable FX Loop. Additionally, the sound shaping features Bottom and Mid Boost letting you reinforce this particular pressure in low-end and the low-mid frequency range, thus expanding the Engl amps' tonal spectrum. It also has an adjustable noise gate for the Lead channel.

        Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        There I was, happy with my little Peavey XXX combo, and then my bandmates tell me that I needed a bigger amp. After searching and searching I finally decided to give the Engl Fireball 100 a try. Immediately after if arrived in the mail, I plugged it into my Mesa cab, cranked it, and struck a chord.....BOOM! It blew me away!!!! I couldn't believe the tone that I was getting. I have owned this head for 4 months now, and it never ceases to amaze me! Compliment after compliment is heaped upon my tone after every gig we play. The best musical investment that I have ever made.

        ENGL: Amps on another level

        By Aurelien Schwartz

        from St. Petersburg, FL

        Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        For years and years, I thought I had the best...an amp recognized by many as the standard in the high gain category and a top selling amp everywhere. That was until I received my Fireball 100 yesterday...This amp destroyed my previous amp in every category and left me speechless. The Fireball 100 is an articulate high gain amp with features most amps do not offer.

        I'll close it with this: Through research, I heard many ENGL users talk about how much they love the "ENGL" sound. Needless to say, I now know what they were talking about...
        A noise gate that works very well, a power tube monitor and a mid boost switch, all very usable features I never had on any previous amps.
        ENGL builds nothing but quality amps, this one is no exception.
        Quality, both in terms of sound and manufacturing come at a price. I saw the value myself, hence the reason I bought one.

        Killer amp!!

        By Horde of Worms

        from Toronto

        Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        This amp killz!The clean channel is the best I,ve heard from any amp I,ve owned.But the overdrive channel is that sound I,ve had in my head, but never found till now.I run through a Basson B412 cab,with 2 BC RICH flying V,s loaded with EMG,s and Dimebuckers,and a Gibson flying V with EMG,s and anyone that hears my sound is floored by how crushing the entire package sounds.Make no mistake kiddies,save your allowence and grab an ENGL.P.S-I run no effects at all,just the gitter directly into the head!

        Simply Awesome

        Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I bought this amp head about a month ago, and each time I turn it on to play through it, I'm amazed every time. This thing is so awesome, and powerful as all get out to. It's a perfect match for rockers to extreme metal heads.

        Excellent Amp!

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        In my search for the coveted "Killswitch Engage" sound I bought a used Framus Cobra, wich turned out to be in terrible condition. After returning it, I turned to the Engl Fireball. The Fireball nails the KSE sound dead on even with 6L6s! This amps lead channel is extremely versatile and very musical sounding. The clean channel is amazing and even sounds lush with EMGs. The amp even came with 2 extra preamp tubes. This amp will never leave my sight.

        This thing is a beast

        By Templar0220

        from Spring Hill FL

        Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I just bought this amp and have to say it delivers everything I need. It is a no frills amp, so that means it delivers 1 thing, but it delivers it great. The gain on the amp suits my style very well (death metal), and damn this thing is loud. Like I said there isnt much else to it except the awesome gain, but the cleans are pretty solid too (although I wouldn't expect anyone to buy this for the clean channel). The Mid boost is VERY good, and was definitely influential in my decision to purchase this amp, as I know the 60w version of this amp didn't have great mids and was not too good at cutting through the mix, the mid boost on this amp solves that. Great buy for anyone who is looking for a simplistic styled amp that can deliver crushing sound.

        An Arsenel of sound in a beautful package.

        By Of Harrison

        from New Jersey

        Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        To put it simply, it might just be one of the most impressive all-tube heads I've ever used. With two channels that have all the versatility in the world, the amp could fit snugly in anyone's rig. The Clean Channel displays wonderful mids and highs, and still carries a heavy bottom end that bellows beautifully. The Lead Channel thrusts out high-end gain with ease, while handling mids and lows perfectly with whatever balance you throw at it. The noise gate is good, but nothing insane. It hands down worth every penny for the craftsmanship and tone it carries. By far one of the most aptly priced ENGL amps. An investment you can't regret.

        GREAT AMP! MUST BUY

        By KeithMetalMaster

        from South Jordan UT

        Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        This is a fantasitc amp, for the longest time I have wanted to plan an engl, and today i got a chance. This amp is what i expect and more. Some of the heaviest sounds you can get, crystal clear cleans, and it has a built in noisegate! The only thing i dont like is how the clean and distorted channal run off the same EQ, but thats all i find annoying about it, besides all that, im going to save and get me an ENGL now!!!
