The ENGL GigMaster 30 tube guitar amp head is a compact tube-driven amp that delivers to-die-for tone in a phenomenally portable package! A perfect sidekick for playing live, recording and practicing at home. It comes loaded with convenient sound-sculpting features including a built-in spring reverb, Gain Boost and Master Volume Boost. The M.V.B. lets you access two different master volume levels on the fly via footswitch, for example, one for rhythm and the other for leads.
Four EL84 pentode power tubes serve up the amp's sweet fundamental sound, while the preamp's ECC83 double triode dishes out lashings of overdrive and distortion. The GigMaster 30 sports two channels, Clean and Lead, giving you an even wider variety of tonal flavors. The Mid Boost switch accentuates those middle frequencies that mean so much to the sound of an electric guitar. Sound-shaping may be controlled remotely via footswitch, which gives you loads of tonal flexibility paired with utmost handling ease!
An ingenious little amp, sure to delight with its warm, bluesy tone and assertive mids.

Comments about Engl GigMaster 30 Tube Guitar Amp Head:
This is a great little amp and for 30 watts, it can push a 2x12 with no problem at all. I mainly bought it for use in my studio running an iso cab for recording. It has the same killer lead tone as the powerball II and a nice spring reverd as well. The duel input gain it a big to figure out with the input gain and lead gain working together on the 2nd channel. But once you figure out you personal settings this amp cranks. I would have liked to see the noise gate control added to this unit like the one on the Powerball II, It really makes the head dead quiet even with the gain cranked all the way up. All in all nice little head for playing hard rock and metal.
