The Engl Powerball II is a versatile amplifier not only for the metal-genre, but also for other genres like Rock and Blues. With it's 4 channels of clean or crunchy and medium, hi-gain tones it is truly a good bet if you need an amp for many styles of music.

The amplifier is built with a chassis to withstand countless of gigs and tours and comes with a amplifier-head cover if so needed.

The sounds of the amp are very musical and it has a lot of headroom for cleaner tones.

The amplifier has a lot of features with it's complementary channel switcher which also functions as a MIDI-Controller for fx-loop and mid-boost switching.

Great for metal
JariV, 09.10.2014
Incredible sound! The only minus point is the operating manual, it is not very clear about the features. The air ventilation slots on the top are a bit of a problem, spilled beer on the amp and it died. Now been fixed by a professional amp builder.

Nicht nur für Metalgitarristen der heilige Gral
Zinirte , 20.10.2017
Zu allererst möchte ich anmerken, dass der Powerball II mein erster Vollröhrenamp ist, daher kann ich ihn nicht mit anderen Topteilen renommierter Hersteller (Marshall, Mesa Boogie, Peavey, ...) würdig vergleichen, obwohl ich von den eben genannten Herstellern ebenfalls Topteile angespielt habe. Aber man bekommt ja erst nach einigen Stunden Proben ein Gefühl, wie der Amp klingt.

Und wie der Powerball II klingt! Von zarten und absolut cleanen Akkorden über AC/DC-Crunch bis hin zur brutalsten Verzerrung, die ich bisher hören durfte ist alles dabei. Als Metalgitarrist war mir letzteres natürlich am wichtigsten, aber wer auf Vielfältigkeit und einem Verstärker setzt, der sich in jeder Musikrichtung wohlfühlt, ist mit dem Powerball absolut richtig.

Auch wenn ich ihn hauptsächlich zuhause verwende, ist der Klang einfach überwältigend. Selbstverständlich wird das Klangbild- wie bei jedem Röhrenamp - mit wachsender Lautstärke immer besser, aber auch wer mit ihm auf Zimmerlautstärke spielen möchte, ist mit dem Powerball gut aufgehoben.

Mir ist es schwer gefallen, einen Kritikpunkt zu finden. Dass kein Reverb wie beispielsweise in einem 6505m oder einem Mark Five:25 eingebaut ist, könnte für manchen das einzige Manko sein. Dafür ist das - für mich wichtigere - Noisegate eingebaut, das seinen Dienst perfekt erfüllt.

Alles in allem 5* und eine absolute Kaufempfehlung!

Polyvalent
Johan G., 20.05.2011
J'ai acquis cette tête d'ampli il y a de ça quelques mois, et j'en suis plus que satisfait. Les possibilités offertes par ses 4 canaux sont impressionnantes ; le son clair chante et les saturations déboitent.

Je possede quelques guitares, toute équipées de micros différents, et chacune d'elle sonne parfaitement sur cet ampli. ce dernier couplé avec des HP V30 offre vraiment le meilleur résultat que j'ai pu obtenir jusqu'à présent.

A noter également la présence de deux master volume (switchable via le pedalier en option) par un simple pression sur votre pédalier vous obtenez deux volumes sonores differents ce qui est on ne peut plus pratique en concert lorsque vous avez un solo à faire (cela permet de vous mettre un poil en avant dans le mix).


Je suis musicien depuis bientot 15 ans et j'ai enfin trouvé l'ampli qui me convient.
