Little lunchbox to feed ya'all.
29.05.2015
Been an ENGL fan for a long while, just wanted a lunchbox sized head after we had a baby, to play in bedroom level. Sold my Gigmaster 30 for this little monster and I'm more than happy with the size, the tone and the price of the Ironball 20 head.

Before reading more, please note that I'm a bedroom guitarist who plays on his own, for a few hours in a week because of hard work and a 1 year old boy and this review will express my personal experiences as a home player, I'm not quite sure about this amps performance in small gigs or garage band practices.

I'm using the head with ENGL's paired 112 v30 cabinet and they are the perftect match. Even in the low volume level, the amp is easy to crank up without the built in gain boost. Personally, I do not like the built in gain boost switches so I'm using a modded SD-1 as a booster to enrich the gain tone. Also looping a Carbon Copy delay, BBE sonic stomp and Boss PQ-4 to enhance my tone.

Having three different types of axes (A Gibson Traditional LP, an American Fender Standard Strat and a Jackson SL-1), the Ironball is quite adaptive and responds to all types I'd like to play. I'm not much of a Fender-clean guy but the clean channel is quite "clean".

For those who live overseas and would like to purchase this amp from Thomann, I live in Turkey and my order has arrived in exact 10 days. Unfortunately, the guys in local customs were a bit curious about the package content and invited me for a customs check to pick it up. Apart from that, the packaging and postal service is more than "perfect".

Thanks to ENGL and Thomann for a great deal!

Great Quality Great Sound
M.F.R., 28.11.2019
Wether for recording, playing live or in your bedroom, great sound in any case.
Can't find any flaws since the 1 year I've had it, very good price-quality ratio, definitely would recommend for high gain, rock or clean guitar.
Also, it feels sturdy, built like a tank.

Metal monster with incredible clean tones
Mindys, 23.07.2018
It has lots of gain. I'm not sure if i'll ever need some pedal to boost it, because it sounds amazing alone. Sounds really clear on high gain. I didn't expect such a nice clean tone. Very warm and if you have Seymour Duncan jazz in your neck pickup, it's even better. Built quality is very solid. As good for home use as for gigging!

Amazing high gain amp
MRos, 05.06.2017
Great sounding amp. One of the best I've ever had! Very, very good clean, good crunch (not the best here) and absolutely amazing high gain tone! Creamy distortion with huge gain reserve for every kind of heavy rock and metal.
The built in boost works pretty well and so do all the EQ controls. I was worried about the shared EQ but I find the voicing of the two channels are perfectly matched. It sounds great also at very low volume, reason why I decided to buy it.
Overall quality is outstanding.
Considering the price it should have come with a footswitch (BTW a generic 2 button footswitch with stereo jack works - I got an FS-2 for 10¤ and does the job).
