        Comments about Engl Ironball 20/5/1W Tube Guitar Head:

        If you're searching for the best amp for the price, this is it. The gain is incredible! I spent over 24 hours worth of time reading and watching reviews; the ironball 20 was the clear winner. Picked it up from my local Guitar Center a few days ago and haven't regretted my decision for one second. It's a little on the pricey side, but the sound you get from it takes away all your concern for dishing that kind of money out for an amp head. If there were ten stars I would rate it that!

        Comments about Engl Ironball 20/5/1W Tube Guitar Head:

        I would have given this 5 stars except two things I think can be improved upon. The reverb gets cut off if you run a noise gate in the loop. I purchased this head and the Peavey 6505 MH head at the same time. The Peavey does not cut the built in reverb off when using the same noise gate in the loop. Also, the power soak only being available in the 8 ohm output is disappointing. Again, the Peavey can run it's power soak in 16 or 8 ohm. While these two are not deal breakers, they are a bit disappointing considering the price of the ironball is 2 times the 6505. With that being said, the ENGL IronBall is noticeably louder than the 6505 MH. I think it has more bottom end as well. All in all, this head is very awesome and still worth the money. I have run this though a Mesa Recto 112, Randall RV212, and a Randall RV412 cab. I think a 112 is not that great of a match with this head. However, if you put this guy on a 412, look out. It is brutal and loud! I did feel you could get away without a front end boost pedal and still get a somewhat not flubby sound. Factory out of the box this head is better sounding that the 6505 MH. Once a boost is put on the front end and BBE Sonic Maximizer is put in the loop, they become sort of equal. In my opinion. I downgraded from the Powerball 2 to this Ironball and do not regret it in any way. Plenty loud for home use. Put it through a 412 and you are gigging small venues.

          Comments about Engl Ironball 20/5/1W Tube Guitar Head:

          This is a competitive high gain amp but it is also very versatile. I've decided to do my review having played it for less than a day. I don't think the stock ENGL tubes are worn in yet and expect better saturation with broken in tubes or new Tung-Sols.

          The gain is crisp and strong. Demos don't do it justice. The cleans are very bright and almost chimey like a Fender. It crunches better than any amp I have ever played. For playing Jimmi Hendrix it is perfect. For playing high gain metal it is very strong. It does not compete with the 6505 for chugging insanity but soloing is nice and smooth, no shrill or screech, plenty of sustain and saturation.

          I only give it 4 stars because of price but at 17 lbs I would say lb for lb it is the best fighter on the block. Demolishes other lunchbox amps. I'm still on the fence about price but I wanted a 20 watt and the power soak knob is a great feature. At 1 watt it is still deafening.
          I'm playing through an EVH 2X12 5150 iii cab with stock Celestion Heritage G12 Chinese made speakers.

          If you expect better gain or tone pushing with an overdrive pedal I don't know what to tell you. My TS-9 barely makes a difference with the boost engaged on lead channel.

          The only flaw I have found so far is that with gain turned up on lead with boost engaged there is a prominent white hiss when guitar is muted, volume off or what have you like putting your ear to a conch shell. It isn't annoying but should be noted.

          The amp is very easy to dial in. I have not turned it up all the way to gig volume so if it has another stage in mayhem I don't know but in fairness it sounds great at low volume.

          If you need a 20 watt amp look no further. If you want a 5150 i/ii or 6505 go Peavey but good luck playing a 120 watt amp.

          I also own a 60 watt 6505+ combo.
