    Bummer... I'm glad you dig it when it's working. It probably is a loose connection or some bad solder. Hard to say. I'm no technician.

    Btw only first three preamp tubes have an effect on the sound. V4 is buffering the loop.
    ... and I prefer clean channel of E520 to E530, too.

    Hey guys/girls,

    I've been eyeballing a Two Notes Torpedo Live for use with my Savage. But the Torpedo can only handle 100 watt RMS and the Savage is 120 watt according to Engl.

    But looking at the power tubes of the Savage it has 2 6550 tubes.
    So taking the plate dissipation of a 6550 which seems around 35-42 watt, shouldn't the output be around 70-82 watt? Or are my calculations wrong? Any help is appreciated!

    So channel 2 of the Invader II can cover pretty much all the ground.

    I made a video of how versatile this channel is...



    The best part is... as great as this channel is... there are 3 other amazing channels on this amp!

    If I could only have 1 amp the rest of my life... this would be it, no question.

    :cool: I do as well , after giging with a 150 for several years I cannot help but be intrigued by the thought of how it could be more flexible . I hope Sam Ash has one locally I could try just to compare . :agreed:

    Got myself an EVH 5153 100W the other day (I'll get the ENGL part don't worry :p)

    Own an ENGL Invader 100 anyway. The EVH 5153 I love the sound of. Just a very different sound/flavour is all.

    The thing that surprised me the most comparing the two though was the clean channel. Everyone always hypes up the 5153's clean channel as being sparkly clean and Fenderish. Tweaking it for a few days now, I still think the Invader comes out far on top. Gives me either warm cleans, or sparkly Fender cleans with the bright engaged.

    In short: still love my Invader :D

    when i was looking for an amp to buy, the EVH was in my sights for a long time. but when i saw a used Invader 150 for a stellar price....i couldn't pass it up. everything about it trumps the EVH in every way possible.

    used my ENGL E530 preamp live last night for the first time (with a Torpedo CAB) going direct to the PA.

    Sounded awesome!!. Used an 8 string. This tube preamp is amazing value for money

    So, I've recently became an ENGL convert, yesterday actually, while comparing plugin tones from a mesa sim and an engl sim. I'm trying to figure out the cheapest way to get a good sounding ENGL tone...A used POD HD500? I'm currently playing through an POD2.0 or my amp sims. All help appreciated!

    Hey guys,
    I want to add MIDI switching to my ENGL Ironball. Normal switching consists of 4 functions:

    clean/lead channel
    Lead channel gain boost boost on/Off
    Master Volume Boost on/off
    Reverb on/off

    These functions are paired off and controlled with a two button foot switch that is connected with a TRS 1/4" male jack.

    Now, if I am reading this right (as I have no experience with MIDI) the ENGL Z-11 MIDI switcher 1/4" input jacks are set up as TRS input as well, thus each input controls two functions listed above. I have found no other MIDI swicthers set up with 1/4" TRS inputs.

    So the Z-11 isn't the easiest or cheapest thing to obtain, so I was wondering if I purchased a Voodoo Labs Control Switcher and used an insert cable to hook the 4 channels channels of the Voodoo labs switcher using the four 1/4" TS and the Ironball switching functions using two 1/4" TRS would this work to switch the functions?

    Thanks,
    Ted
