Engl is a defo! Played a Mesa in Londinium about 2 months ago and twas ....! No nice evil low mids! Sounded more like a Marshall! I have the cheapest Engl preamp (E530) and its better than most amps I've played! Mates got a DSL100, creams that! Dunno bout Peavey tho heard they rock too!
Perfection at Blistering Speeds! TM
