Comments about Engl Invader 150W Guitar Amp Head:

i absolutely love the toneS i get out of this amp,I generally use a boost in front but don't seem to really need one with this amount of gain, Although it has gobs of gain it still retains all clarity at all levels!also the features are second to none, i've owned diezels and about every other amp in the universe besides a larry, (*which are 8 thousand dollars so...) but this kicks butt and is seriously worth the moneyonly real complaint i can muster is the noise gate is rubbish, get a g-string and you'll be a happy duder or duderino! cause this does make a lot of unwanted noise, sadly :(any way i am a very happy owner of this amp and am pleased to have bought it from musicians friend, they got it to me promptly and safely i can't ask for anything elsebut seriously GET A NOISE GATE!!other than that, it's clearly awesomechannel one-clean to cruchinesschannel two-my rhythm channel, little more gain and has defined midschannel three-great for a second rhythm channel (as i use it) or a secondary or primary lead channel heavy on bass it seemschannel four-anything but clean and it does it a little brighter than the other channelsof course these channels may sound slightly different in another invader but i think this gets the idea across that a lot is possible and with midi it's cooler than normalinvader for the win!

Invader 150, A Metal Machine

Comments about Engl Invader 150W Guitar Amp Head:

What can I say about this amp? It does it all! Any tone you can possibly imagine is located within its sleek and modern facade. The cleanest cleans, the most crushing distortion, the smoothest leads.. it may sound like a too good to be true scenario but it's true! This is truly a holy grail amp.
