Overview

4-channel tube preamp for guitar with a 1.5-watt headphone amp for silent practice.

This 4-channel Engl tube preamp has much more to offer than just being the heart of a modern Rock rack system. Besides the convincing clean, crunch, and lead tones, a balanced recording compensated output helps you lay your parts straight into your hard drive. A stereo 1.5-watt power amp works with any cabinet or headphone for silent practicing.

The two main channels, Clean and Lead, feature dedicated voicing sections, gain pots and volume controls for precision sound shaping and fine-tuning. The Gain Lo/Hi switch converts the Clean channel to a Crunch channel and, in the Lead channel, the sound spectrum encompasses everything from Heavy Crunch to Ultra Gain. With a 4-band voicing section featuring two midrange bandwidths and a Contour switch that can be accessed via footswitch or the optional ENGL MIDI Switcher Z-11 (sold separately), the Lead channel is amazingly versatile. Another handy feature is the Defeat function, which bypasses the preamp and routes the guitar signal directly to the output. This feature enables you to connect two preamps in series and this option enlarges the tonal spectrum. The variable Stereo Line Out and a frequency compensated Line Out give you a wide range of application options. For instance, you can patch the preamp signal directly to a mixing console or recording device and simultaneously drive a stereo power amp.
