The ENGL Ironball Special Edition 20W tube guitar amp head is designed to act as the missing link between the analog and the digital world. Sound-wise, it was made with no compromises, so there are no semiconductors in the signal path in order to keep the sound as pure as possible.
The Ironball features two channels with boosts. The Clean channel offers chime shimmering cleans and smoothly breaks up at higher settings. Thanks to the gain boost function you can boost the channel to get nice shimmering crunch sounds out of it. The Lead channel starts where the Clean channel ends and offers a huge amount of gain and can even be boosted to make it more versatile. This channel is perfect to play any style of rock and metal.
ENGL used digital components for the MIDI system, the effects section and the impulse-response loader. The built-in power soak offers you the opportunity to play late at night or whenever higher volumes are unacceptable. It also gives you the opportunity to push the Ironball’s power amp to break up at low volumes.
