The Engl Screamer 50 delivers the sonic goods—tons of tone and palette of hip sounds from squeaky clean to hi-gain shred and everything in between. This all-tube beast is your first choice for many different sound styles! With a host of practical features and a clearly-arranged control panel, handling this amp is a piece of cake.
The Screamer’s opulent visuals are certainly arresting, but its unique, creamy tube tone and silky spring reverb truly set this amplifier apart. The Screamer comes complete with a bit of technical wizardry which you’ll find useful where it counts most—out there in the real world of rehearsing and gigging. Among these features are a Lo/Hi Gain switch, which in effect doubles your choice of channels from two: Clean and Lead, to four: the afore-mentioned, plus Crunch and Heavy Lead.
You also get two different connection systems for different footswitches-conventional ¼” jacks as well as a port for the ENGL compact footswitch Z-5 (optional). And then there’s the ingenious feature “V.L.S.”, an adapted version of the extremely popular and highly practical Master A/B switching circuit found on high-end ENGL heads.
