Overview

The Engl Fireball 100 guitar amp head offers all essential sound features in addition to a practical, clear layout for all players who appreciate straightforward structures. In its cool "black magic" optical appearance the amplifier head delivers a mighty bottom end punch well-suited for playing power chords and solos with precise accentuation, courtesy of its powerful 6L6GC 100-Watt power amp.

Other trademark features include two master volume controls A and B, electronic power amp monitoring, and a variable / switchable FX Loop.

Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

This amp can be brutal, smooth, crunchy and even classy. If you don't mind the shared EQ, trust me, buy it. It sounds so good and the feel is amazing. The clean is really good and doesn't get the credit it deserves. One of my favorite metal amps.

    Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    This is one hell of an amplifier. I've been playing my Engl Fireball paired with an Engl 4x12 cab for about a year now and am very happy with it. The cleans are warm and smooth, and the lead is absolutely crushing. The design looks great with red glowing tubes behind the sleek Engl logo. I've heard nothing but compliments about my tone with this amp. There are a couple downsides, you have to purchase the channel footswitch separately and the EQ is also very basic. It would not stop me from buying this amp again though. I would recommend to anyone looking for a serious hard rock/metal tone. This amp is seriously awesome.

      Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      The Fireball 100 is brutal! It has the beefiest low end of any amp I've ever played and that's the main reason I switched from my Marshall JVM410H to this amp. Even with all of the beefiness this amp is still ultra articulate even when the gain is at 10 and especially with the mid-boost engaged. The high end is present but not shrill at all, at least not with my cabs.

      The "Clean" channel is absolutely brilliant too! You can dial in a crystal clear clean or, what I love most about the clean channel, you can increase the clean gain for a great blues break up all the way to classic rock!

      Some people won't like the shared EQ between the Clean and Lead channels and the fact that it doesn't have built in reverb. Both are problems that easily fade from my mind when I hear how great this amp sounds. There are some great pedals for delay and reverb plus reverb on amps tend to have issues down the road and it's just easier to get new pedals than it is to have your amp's reverb fixed. As for the shared EQ, I think you really have to ask yourself "Did I buy the Fireball 100 because I wanted to focus on my clean tone?" You already know the answer to that.

      I think the Noise Gate is a little touchy and not even close to as good as ISP but it is serviceable and that's great if you just want to plug straight into the amp with no pedals.

      The FIREBEAST

      By paul paris

      from Port Neches, Texas

      Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      its hard to describe something that you've never experienced before, but i'll try. i'm not sure if there is anything called "the German sound", but this sure fits the bill. Dark roar that i've only heard from a marshall, but it doesn't sound like a marshall. it has low end like the 5150's but it doesn't sound like the 5150"s. its like a German beer. stout, dark, strong as hell w/ great flavor different that any other beer. it gives hints that you've heard it before, but you haven't. this amp blows away a lot of them out there and if it fits your style it blows them all away. its that good. i don't really like the powerballs, so i wasn't a big Engl fan, but i had the cash to buy anything out there and i play a fireball-100. enough said!!!!!

      Floored!!!!!!

      About Me Professional Musician

      Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      There I was, happy with my little Peavey XXX combo, and then my bandmates tell me that I needed a bigger amp. After searching and searching I finally decided to give the Engl Fireball 100 a try. Immediately after if arrived in the mail, I plugged it into my Mesa cab, cranked it, and struck a chord.....BOOM! It blew me away!!!! I couldn't believe the tone that I was getting. I have owned this head for 4 months now, and it never ceases to amaze me! Compliment after compliment is heaped upon my tone after every gig we play. The best musical investment that I have ever made.

      ENGL: Amps on another level

      By Aurelien Schwartz

      from St. Petersburg, FL

      Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      For years and years, I thought I had the best...an amp recognized by many as the standard in the high gain category and a top selling amp everywhere. That was until I received my Fireball 100 yesterday...This amp destroyed my previous amp in every category and left me speechless. The Fireball 100 is an articulate high gain amp with features most amps do not offer.

      I'll close it with this: Through research, I heard many ENGL users talk about how much they love the "ENGL" sound. Needless to say, I now know what they were talking about...
      A noise gate that works very well, a power tube monitor and a mid boost switch, all very usable features I never had on any previous amps.
      ENGL builds nothing but quality amps, this one is no exception.
      Quality, both in terms of sound and manufacturing come at a price. I saw the value myself, hence the reason I bought one.

      Killer amp!!

      By Horde of Worms

      from Toronto

      Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      This amp killz!The clean channel is the best I,ve heard from any amp I,ve owned.But the overdrive channel is that sound I,ve had in my head, but never found till now.I run through a Basson B412 cab,with 2 BC RICH flying V,s loaded with EMG,s and Dimebuckers,and a Gibson flying V with EMG,s and anyone that hears my sound is floored by how crushing the entire package sounds.Make no mistake kiddies,save your allowence and grab an ENGL.P.S-I run no effects at all,just the gitter directly into the head!

      Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I bought this amp head about a month ago, and each time I turn it on to play through it, I'm amazed every time. This thing is so awesome, and powerful as all get out to. It's a perfect match for rockers to extreme metal heads.

      Excellent Amp!

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      In my search for the coveted "Killswitch Engage" sound I bought a used Framus Cobra, wich turned out to be in terrible condition. After returning it, I turned to the Engl Fireball. The Fireball nails the KSE sound dead on even with 6L6s! This amps lead channel is extremely versatile and very musical sounding. The clean channel is amazing and even sounds lush with EMGs. The amp even came with 2 extra preamp tubes. This amp will never leave my sight.

      This thing is a beast

      By Templar0220

      from Spring Hill FL

      Comments about Engl Fireball 100 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      I just bought this amp and have to say it delivers everything I need. It is a no frills amp, so that means it delivers 1 thing, but it delivers it great. The gain on the amp suits my style very well (death metal), and damn this thing is loud. Like I said there isnt much else to it except the awesome gain, but the cleans are pretty solid too (although I wouldn't expect anyone to buy this for the clean channel). The Mid boost is VERY good, and was definitely influential in my decision to purchase this amp, as I know the 60w version of this amp didn't have great mids and was not too good at cutting through the mix, the mid boost on this amp solves that. Great buy for anyone who is looking for a simplistic styled amp that can deliver crushing sound.
