    EURGH. I miss my Invader. I sold it for the reason that I only ever used channel 3 and the clean occasionally. Now I miss the hell out of it. I replaced it with a 5153 and while the tone is fantastic, ENGL high gain is just more to my liking. What are peoples thoughts on the Artist Edition? I'm currently thinking about that or the Fireball. I love simplicity, while the AE is clearly versatile as hell, I do have some slight concerns that it won't do really tight high gain on a Fireball level. Whereas I'm fully aware that the Fireball has more than enough gain.

    Lesse Lamert has a great clip on Youtube (it's technically the Blackmore, although I'm under the impression the're almost identical amps? Correct me if wrong) which is promising.

    ^The invader must be glorious if you prefer it over the 5153. My EVH literally kills my bandmate's Powerball I.

    it sounds more like the "tone is subjective" argument. What type of Gain you think is better might not be someone elses choice.

    I guess he prefers the gain and character of the ENGL over the EVH. He is not saying the EVH is shit or that one is better than the other, but more what suits him better.

    I wasn't talking about "tone" but about not getting lost in the mix. Again, my 5153 50w destroys my mate's Powerball I 100w if you know what I mean now.
