A tone tweaker's dream based on a powerful tube configuration!

4-channel, all-tube powered head, the Powerball amp head offers sound-shaping options unrivaled by any other. Designed to satisfy the exacting demands of discerning players, it delivers all the tonal hues and colors you need to paint the most vivid musical pictures imaginable. Housed inside this newly designed enclosure is a powerhouse 100W amp boasting 6L6GC tubes. The Engl amp head delivers the sonic goods you need to dial in everything from contemporary ultra-high gain lead tone to crystal-clear clean and punchy crunch sounds. An astonishing amount of gain reserves, remarkable tonal versatility, and bone-rattling bottom end have crowned the Powerball king of the hill among modern-day guitar amp heads.

Thanks to its ability to crank out tight, focused low end, glossy top end and jaw-dropping sound pressure levels, the Powerball amp head provides the contemporary guitarist with richly detailed tone and the kind of cut-through-the-din assertiveness that sets standards for amps in this class. And in keeping with the Engl tradition of engineering excellence, it sports a host of hip features: a second master volume, electronic power amp monitoring, an adjustable FX loop, and a Depth Punch knob that shapes the head's response by beefing up the low end. But that's not the last word on this Engl head's innovative features: you also get two different sound voicings, Open and Focused. Engl created these voicings to extend the range of lead sounds you have at your disposal by tweaking mid-range response to suit different playing styles and applications.

There are a few more handy features to rave about: It ships with a Z-5 Custom Footswitch Port. Designed to accept the ENGL Z-5 footswitch (sold separately) that lets you control all key sound-shaping functions remotely. ENGL has added another new audiophile wrinkle”an adjustable noise gate for the Lead channel. Old world craftsmanship and highest quality components are part of what makes Engl amp heads so special, and the Powerball is no exception.
