    Comments about Engl Savage 120W Guitar Amp Head:

    This is one of my top 3 amps of all time. The clarity and it's unique and unmistakable sound is what sets it apart from the rest. What is remarkable about this amp is every channel is not only usable but in a league of its own. Depending on what cab you use, the stock 6550 tubes can be a little too EL-34ish. If that isn't your thing, throw in Kt-77 and you'll be grinning. There's a reason this amp is still in production after 20 years. Get it before it's too late !

        Comments about Engl Savage 120W Guitar Amp Head:

        First off, I don't usually take the time to write reviews on products. I have owned this amp since June of 2015 and it's absolutely amazing. I'm extremely picky with my tone (as I believe we all should be) and this is the only amp I have ever owned that gave me that "perfect tone". It's in the shop right now, getting retubed, and I'm using my old 6505+ as a backup at the moment, but man, I miss it so much more every day! I can't wait to get it back (about 2 more weeks) and hear my baby roar again. It has glassy, beautiful cleans and crystal clear gain, no matter how much you crank it. It really REALLY is an unbelievable piece of equipment and (heaven forbid) if anything ever happens to it, I'll be sure to buy another one without a second thought.

          THE AMP HAS GOTTEN VERY EXPENSIVE IN THE LAST 6-8 YEARS, AND HAS GONE FROM $1899 TO $2499 BUT THIS AMP COVERS EVERY STYLE AND CAN DO IT ALL. THE BEST THING TO ME IS IT HAS MORE LOW END THEN THE POWERBALLS, INVADERS, STEVE MORSE AMPS, AND THE SCORPIONS USED THIS AMPS FOR MANY YEARS FROM WHAT I CAN UNDERSTAND.

          Comments about Engl Savage 120W Guitar Amp Head:

          Such a great Amp. Sounds amazing at loud volumes. Tight, punchy gain with plenty of headroom. The sound stays together with NO breakup even with the highest of gain. The versatility of this amp is a plus. Get the Z-10 foot switch to control all the numerous auxiliary functions. You wont be needing an OD pedal either. I use boutique style analog delays and reverbs through the FX loop and it's the most organic sound ever. Not to mention the sparkling cleans this amp has. I would highly recommend this amp to anyone interested in playing extreme death or black metal. The gain stages in the 2 main channels(3&4) seem to be best suited for this playing style. However you can get plenty of other great sounds out of this amp with a little tweaking. It's a little pricey but worth all the extra $$$. Those Germans really think things through.

          Comments about Engl Savage 120W Guitar Amp Head:

          I've had a framus cobra,bogner acstacy 101b, Mesa single dual and triple rectifiers,I've also had a couple bogner ubershalls along the way that's just a few so as you can see I've been on a hunt for A long time about 15 years now actually for "THE AMP" The one amp that doesn't have a bad sound in it.Well my fellow muisicians I can honestly say my search is over and I say this because I've had this amp for almost 1 1/2 now and I love it just as much as the first day it was delivered to my door step!! The features are unbelievable at this price I couldn't it. I've paid 1 to 2 thousand dollers more for other amps with this kind of versatility and for the most part the features were just gimmicks stuff you really didn't wanna use because it would muddy up the tone in some way or another. This amp also has a reputation for being a metal amp and rightfully so but I've used this amp for everything from blues SRV to country chickin pickin brad paisly, to deftones and periphery I would say that's some serious Ground and I've accomplished this with excellent results!! Did I also mention that when you crank this amp the people next door to you will run to there basement thinking Armageddon has made way!!! Yes this amp has tons of power more than most will ever need but it's cool to have it on tap.But I also wanna mention you don't need to crank this amp to get that nice tube driven saturation we all love in the gain stage.Go buy this amp you will not be disappointed!!!!!!!

          Still searching but almost there.

          Comments about Engl Savage 120W Guitar Amp Head:

          I bought an 03 model used on ebay in 06 and just to show the reason for the max value rating i sold it in 2010 for exactly what I paid for it. I had retubed it with JJ's(130 bucks) but it was worth every dime. I ran mine eventualy with a rocktron effects/hush.(get a better noise gate(decimator), you'll need it). And BBE through the effects loop. I have to say I sold mine for financial purposes and cried all the way to the UPS store. This amp is Incredible and now I'm searching for the ultimate amp again now that I got my job back. If you play anything from 80's metal to modern Death Metal this is your baby. Like I said GET A GREAT noise gate. That is the only reason features didn't get a 5.

          Like No Other

          By Smull

          from Ontario, Canada

          Comments about Engl Savage 120W Guitar Amp Head:

          When looking for a serious upgrade to my live rig extensive research brought me to Engl. At first I was sold on the Invader 100, but after more research I concluded the was common ground between the Invader 100 and the Savage 120. After trying both out in store I immediately gravitated towards the Savage 120 and truly believe it is the go to sound for metal/death metal/prog metal etc. Basically anything with absolutely sludging gain needed. Obviously try it out, but this is honestly the go to amplifier for todays metal musician.

          Amazing Peice of Equipment !

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Engl Savage 120W Guitar Amp Head:

          When I joined the Engl Family I started with a Powerball which I still own proudly. after 2 years of owning this peice of work I needed to find something more that could bring even more to the table, after hearing the sound of the Savage I went ahead and ordered one, i must say I have never been happier with an amp. it's loud, powerful, versitile and has more balls then the powerball has. I highly recommend this amp to any metal head who likes deathmetal, metalcore, or even Blackmetal. But can also be used for other styles as well.

          Comments about Engl Savage 120W Guitar Amp Head:

          the savage is a extremely dynamic and versitile amp, that can take you anywhere from plexi breakup, to the classic ENGL roar. i have owned the Invader 100 and the powerball, and this is the tightest soiunding of them all, and probable has the best gain structure. you will need a noise gate, but htis amp is well worth it
