A 4-channel 100W amp head crafted in Germany with pure tube tone.
The ENGL Invader 100 E 642 Tube Guitar Amp Head features 8 different gain stages in 4 separate channels that include four separate EQs. Powered by 4 EL34 Tubes the Invader delivers a total amount of 100 watts. The idea behind the Invader is that guitarists need ultimate flexibility and control in any given playing situation. It achieves this by using a special 4 channel layout.
Named Channel 1, 2, 3, 4, these channels are able to produce different Overdrive / Gain structures in each one from Crunch to High Gain. Every Overdrive Voicing in the channels is different. In conjunction with the Hi / Lo gain switch, which can be remote controlled and a separate EQ section for each channel, there will be no limits except the guitarist creativity.
• Channel 1: Silken Clean to Crispy Crunch
• Channel 2: Fat & Bulky Crunch to NU-Rock / Metal Rhythm / Lead
• Channel 3: Tight Warm Crunch to Classic Dynamic Rock / Metal
• Channel 4: Modern Crunch to Singing Harmonic Leads
There are three different remote interface ports available on the ENGL Invader amp head: A Serial Amp Control Port accepts the Custom Z-9 Footswitch (optional); use it as a conventional switcher to select channels and two sound-shaping functions directly. Then there's the MIDI In, which accepts the Z-9 for use as a simple MIDI footcontroller or any other MIDI footcontroller. Finally, the guitar amp is equipped with a stereo jack that takes a dual footswitch, allowing you to switch the four channels remotely.
