The ENGL Invader II features an improved channel design with two Clean channels and two Overdrive channels, all switchable between a HI or Low Gain mode plus a Sound switch that changes the character per channel. That’s a total tonal variety of 16 basic sounds.
Guitar World paid a visit to the ENGL booth at the 2012 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California, to check out some new amps -- including the Gigmaster 30. In this video, guitarist AC Alexander of Warrior and Lizzy Borden does the playing as Michael Berger of ENGL does the talking, dishing out details about the Gigmaster 30. The amp features a 12-inch Celestion Super 65, plus reverb and two channels.
This new, organic-sounding 100-watt amp is part of what ENGL considers a slightly new direction. It features all new circuitry -- it's not quite the high-gain amp ENGL has become known for, despite their amps' versatility.
