Well yah its been a while but I have something cool to show off, the ENGL e670 is not in production any more but it has more features than any other version of the ENGL line. Its by far one of the best Amps I have ever used. In the past I have been trying out a true good list of devices
Marshall JCM 900
Marshall JCM 800
Marshall JMP 1975
Soldano SP77 with Marshall 9100
Axe FX II XL+, Axe Fx III
ENGL Power Ball I
ENGL Power Ball II
ENGL e670 Special Edition
Whats Different about the E670 : Well out fo the Box the Overdrive is refined sounding I found.
There are a tone of options, 4 channels .. plus Tube Driver Circuit and Depth Boost, Low end Punch, Noise gate
2 Effects Loops, Serial Effects Loop, 2 Presence for A, B
There is even a Cable Checker lol, I laughed about that but it is useful
There are options for 4 Cabinets and multi switch for 4, 8, 16 ohms
The Build Quality is very nice, I really like the steel knobs on front and on back
It has a Self BIAS switch between EL34 / 6L6
2 large transformers, it is a heavy amplifier thats for sure lol
but it plays great.
