Re: Engl Screamer
It is a great amp indeed, and would be perfect for your requirements IMO. However, the combo version I've played through seemed to own the head in terms of tone. The head was very brittle and trebley, not a pleasant sound at all. Recently I have come to believe this is down to the Engl cab the head was going through, as my friend tried his Single Rec through it and hated it. The cab in question is the Engl vintage 2x12. By all means try the head out if you are looking for the stack option, but I'd recommend playing it through say a Mesa or Marshall cab instead. I've also read very good reviews of people using it with a Bogner Uberschall cabinet, but that may be outside your budget.
I hope you find the amp you're looking for.
