OVERVIEW

The perfect sidekick for playing gigs, recording in studios and practicing at home.

The ENGL GigMaster 30 tube guitar combo amp is a compact tube-driven combo that delivers to-die-for tone in a phenomenally portable package! It comes loaded with sound-sculpting features designed to make playing more rewarding, including a built-in spring reverb, Gain Boost and Master Volume Boost. This 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 unleashes loads of overdrive and distortion. What's more, the GigMaster 30 sports two channels, Clean and Lead, so you get a wider variety of tonal flavors. The Gig Master 30's Mid Boost switch accentuates those middle frequencies. Sound-shaping can be controlled remotely via footswitch, which gives you lots of tonal flexibility paired with utmost handling ease! This ingenious little amp is sure to delight with its warm, bluesy tone and assertive mids. But don't take our word for it - plug in, play, and enjoy!

  • Power: 30W
  • Clean and Lead channels
  • Two Gain control knobs: Input Gain and Lead Drive

      Comments about Engl GigMaster 30 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

      I played 5 small shows with this amp. I transported it in a fully padded case. I took excellent care of it. I kissed it goodnight before bed, it was my new baby (plus pedal, not included..) It worked great, sounded great, I loved it. Had the amp worked longer, I'd give it a 4.5-5 star review, almost perfect. Although it is expensive, it's a powerful little unit with great tone. But based on it's 77 days of quality performance, I am giving it a 1 star review to warn other potential buyers and share my story. After just 77 days the power tube indicator light came on. Although I was little disappointed with the short tube life, I bought new tubes and installed them. It was disappointing, but it can happen, so I dealt with it. I thought the problem would be solved, and I'd have a fresh start with my new tubes that would hopefully last a bit longer. But the problem is that the power tube indicator light is still on with brand new tubes installed. At this point I reached out to the distributor for help. They offer none, coverage only last 45 days, I've had the amp for 77 days. They direct me to the manufacturer. The manufacturer tells me to take it to an professional amp technician (none in my State, so obviously there'd be some traveling, time or expense involved in getting it there) or have the distributor handle it for me. In the few response that I receive from them, they claim there is an internal power fuse they needs to be replaced every time a tube goes out. They refuse to tell me how to replace it, and fail to respond to my inquiries. The communication from the manufacturer has been very poor. This distributor has also lost my business, even though they are now emailing me coupons to try and win me back. I've purchased what I thought was a high end product only to have them blame each other for not backing it's quality, and now I am stuck in the middle with a product I cannot repair. I am wishing I had shopped elsewhere and purchased a different product.

          Comments about Engl GigMaster 30 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          This small amp packs a great punch. It's the little brother to the Screamer 50 which I have used for 2 years and many gigs. Because there is only one input gain control, you have to find a balance between the clean channel and good, solid distortion. I couldn't quite get a Fender clean as well as killer crunch and drive like my Screamer 50, but I did get a sound that works with all the gain I need and just a little breakup on the clean. I do not use a distortion pedal, so I always look for amps that cut it on their own. This one does for sure. I use an RP500 in the effects loop, and it works great with the Gigmaster 30. I play in a rock cover band and I can get all the sounds I need from it. I love the footswitchable gain, mid, and volume boost. Best features ever for a live performance when you need solos to stand out. I have used it at band practice where it shined, but also it will be my backup amp when we play out of town because it's small and does most of the things my bigger amps do. I will also bring it along to club gigs just to change up a bit.

            I own a Mesa 5:50 express and a fender deluxe they are no match for this amp.
            The clean is is great the dirty Chanel awesome. Gain , gain boost for lead and plus master A and B to boost the volume and mid boost to get fat tone this amp does it all blue to rock very little noise even if I crank to max , I love this amp , best amp I ever own
            It will be nice if they come with the foot switch . Need 2 Z4 to control this amp but is worth the money
