German boutique amp makers Engl are endorsed by a host of famous guitarists, and sound fantastic.
This is a simply stunning boutique amplifier. It has the most defined clean tones we've heard in a long time, and warm, pure vintage overdrive. If you are after an absolutely top drawer, luxury and most of all authentic 'living and breathing' amplifier, this is for you.
What Engl say:
"Take a step into a world of some of the most amazing tones ENGL has ever created and journey into vintage soundscapes.
The new ENGL Retro Tube 50 head features two channels of retro sound variety. Channel One offers warm and silken or well-dressed, sparkling clean sounds and very harmonic crunch sounds with ENGL's version of Class A character. Channel Two is a perfectly suited warm overdrive channel offering a wide range of retro tones for the ambitious guitar player.
100% cutting in the studio. 100% convincing on the stage. 50 watts of Retro Tube power. It's so organic, it's almost alive."
