    Comments about Engl Ironball 20/5/1W Tube Guitar Head:

    Before you purchase this amp, make sure you're only after crunch sounds, and heavier. This thing breathes fire, and even the clean channel on the Ironball, when the gain is turned up, gives you enough distortion as a Mesa. You COULD leave the clean gain down, and keep the Master control up, but then when you switch channels to it's first overdrive channel, you'll be rattling your house with volume. I chose to buy the larger 1x12" cabinet, thinking at the time it would give me more depth of sound, but if I had to do it again, I'd pick the smaller 1x12", since the bigger 1x12" that I have can get a bit bass-y. All in all, if you're looking for good distortion and good crunch-clean, this amp shreds. If you're looking for shimmering cleans, and plan on using it in a channel-switching to clean sounds in a live setting, you might want to go elsewhere. Personally, though, I was looking for heavy distortion, and I'm happy to say that I'll never have to buy or use another distortion pedal again in my life. Also, it responds to picking dynamics and volume rollbacks quite well on all channels. It's built like a German tank. The only reason I gave it a 4/5 is because upon arrival, my stereo footswitch cord didn't work with the channel selecter very well, but that problem is peanuts compared to the value and versatility in this amp.

    Comments about Engl Ironball 20/5/1W Tube Guitar Head:

    This is an amazing portable amp. While I dislike this lunchbox metal case and handle fad, I'm happy to see manufacturers making low power amps that are still easily loud enough for small gigs, and truly fantastic for practice. I was VERY surprised at the amount of gain on this amp, because the other lunchbox makers seem to lack in quality gain that they get out of their preamps. This was tight, and powerful. Very impressive package.

        Killer head, sold open box mint. Dented and scratched upon arrival. Would not discount for damage. Exchange they said, sent it in, they sold the exchange open box out from under me. Wanted more $$$ to
        complete the exchange. No, that's not how it works. CS used to be awesome at mf, WHAT HAPPENED??? Anyone else think the past year has been all downhill for mf cs? I do!

          The Engl Powerball, is a killer amp with crystal clear high gain and excellent clean tone. Very impressed with the quality and powerful sound of this amp. More than enough power for gigging. This amp is a keeper!

            You can really get multiple sounds out of this amp. If you don't mind the shared EQ and aren't playing arenas, stadium or large venues, then buy this now. Put it in a 2x12 or 4x12 and you'll never know it was a 20 watt monster.

              Comments about Engl Ironball 20/5/1W Tube Guitar Head:

              If you need a real tube amp of high quality that has all the gain you could ever need, this is the one for you. The reverb is very serviceable, the effect loop is great, & although it has only one band of EQ, it contains three distinct channels at your fingertips(or toes if you spring for the footswitch). It warm and sparkly, it can do great cleans, great overdrive, and phenomenal leads with all of the gain you could ever need. It can get a little noisy, but if you have a noise gate it really isn't worth even noting. When musicians as varied as Bumblefoot, Alexi Laiho, Joe from Fall Out Boy, and so many more use Engl, you should take the time to give it a shot yourself
