The Engl Fireball is a great investment, its price is actually hard to beat, to find a boutique amp for 1500 or less with this amount of character is rare, The Tone is very Punchy, Articulate great for Hardcore, Metal, Deathcore types of music. Instantly the tone is above 6505 and Dual Rec, note for note this amp stands out, instead of having that muddy dual rec, or grainy 6505 soundThink August Burns Red and thats the tone you get very Articulate distinguished and extremely versatile.
I played a Marshall Mg100 head. my band plays technical death metal in drop G# and it couldn't push it without making it sound like mud. i looked around chose between Engl Fireball 60, Carvin V3, and a Madison Divinity 2. finally decided on this and haven't looked back at the marshall.
Gain staging more similar to 5150 than a dual or triple rec, but if youre thinking about buying a 5150 or 6505 I would get this instead. It is much less brittle and overall I think a little more pristine sounding. Definately a better clean channel as well. Keeps together well for low tunings.
This head is amazing, it is built like a tank, relatively light for how big it is, 53lbs, and it screams Metal! Ok if your going to need reverb and have millions of sounds than this head is not for you, this head only having two volume controls using the same eq settings is kind of bummer but the way I see it this just makes me more creative by only having a couple sounds to choose from. It makes you find different ways to make the guitar talk. I found that I can re create sounds ranging from Parkway Drive,to Waking the Cadaver, to The Devil Wears Prada with no effects just to name a few. It does have an effects chain if your into that stuff so it isn't completely useless to people using lots of pedals. The head by itself is all you would need to play most forms of metal, amazing distortion and overdrive. I would buy this again if I lost mine. ENGL user for life.
I've had this amp for about 6 months now. I run it through an Avatar 2x12 premium oversized with 2 celestion v30's. My tone was amazing with just that, but throw in a noise gate and a BBE sonic stomp in the FX loop and you have a SERIOUS METAL MACHINE. Its a no frills amp, the cleans are great (not much of a connoiseur for cleans but hey). ENGL's are becoming popular for a reason and that is because they are excellent. The controls are responsive in my opinion and I love the sound. I never have gain past 12 o clock and I play BRUTAL metal ala Suffocation, Dying Fetus, Origin etc. Point is, its got more than enough gain. I unfortunately have to sell it soon but ENGL has converted me and I will purchase another ENGL head once the opportunity arises.
I have owned my Engl Fireball since 2002 Namm and it is the best bang for the buck. The cleans are pristine and the gain is well rounded. No sharp britle edges to this amps sound. Definetly run this amp through a 4x12 cab (I use the Engl 4x12 w/Vintage 30s). Another great thing about this amp you can play at bedroom levels and sound great!!!
After sending back a B-52AT-100, a peavey 6505 and not being satisfied with Any Mesa products I drove 3.5 hours to try out a Engl and bought it 5 minutes after testing it, It has a unique feel, loads of sustain, gain and amazing character for any metal, hardcore, deathcore band. This is the last amp I will ever buy.
I once owned the peavey 6505+ but hated the alarm-clock quality to its tone. I sold it and bought the Fireball and couldn't believe it. All of my Peavey and Mesa owning friends want an ENGL now. I have also tried the Powerball but I wasn't as impressed . The lower wattage of this amp gives it a more liquid and less jagged tone. This amp is plenty loud! Despite having one set of controls for both channels, any control setting will transfer well between channels. I use the eq on the gmajor if I ever want to REALLY change the eq for certain effects. The 1/4 footswitch input makes it really easy to change channels and works wonders with the gmajor. Bottom line, the Fireball is my new God.
Best amp I have owned in 20 years of playing all I know is this amp WHOMPS A**....and feels good. What a killer amp for a decent price. If you want Deathmetal, Metalcore, Grindcore, any hard kickin Metal Metal Metal, this is the one. I haven't touched my other amps in months. SS in NC USA
This is the amp to have for ANY kind of metal, hard rock, chicken pickin licks, or the "black and blues". The gain stages can go from classic overdriven plexi to modern ultra gain. And even with the gain pinned all the way up the amp still reproduces every note with extreme clarity. A must have for any tone freak that likes a real raw sound.
