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. Sparkling clean sounds and every imaginable nuance between Clean and Hi Gain Lead tones belong to the repertoire of the Engl Fireball 100 amp. Other trademark features include two master volume controls A and B, electronic power amp monitoring, and a variable / switchable FX Loop. Additionally, the sound shaping features Bottom and Mid Boost letting you reinforce this particular pressure in low-end and the low-mid frequency range, thus expanding the Engl amps' tonal spectrum. It also has an adjustable noise gate for the Lead channel.
