    After seeing for quite some time pics of and references to a new bass head from Engl amps, it's now actually for sale, at least here in Germany. Street price in Germany € 1.550


    Some specs are not quite clear, as the website and the attached brochure pdf quote different figures without specifying what impedance those power ratings refer to.

    Dual mono 2x 350W (8ohms, my guess)
    2x 500W (4ohms, my guess)

    Bridge op 1x 1.000W (8ohms, my guess)
    1x 1.700W (4ohms, my guess)

    4 AX7's in the tube channel

    I don't like how they call it a tube amp.

  7. Parts of it remind me of a Genz Benz Shuttlemax.

    I just bought this amp and it's killer!

    Premier Guitar did a review of this amp and they included demos: Engl Rackhead 1060 Review | Premier Guitar

    I also just recently uploaded a bass cover using this amp, mind you I am running the MXR bass DI in front of it, which is colouring the sound:

    Unlike the Genz Benz you cant blend the two preamps without doing some weird patching arrangement, they are two separate independent channels

    Apologies... this is a late question - can you run this amp with just one cab plugged into say channel A output? How would you then switch between chan A or B inputs so that you always get sound from chan A output? What I mean is instead of using the bridged output... that can only go down to 8 ohms.
