umm... how? because it uses 6l6 powertubes and 12ax7 preamp tubes? has distortion and clean settings?
sorry to dissapoint you, but non of that means jack.... there are dozens of different head out there that have those similarities yet are nothing a like.

so if your definition of awesome is the st-100a then i don't think the 5150 is what you're looking for... because it actually sounds good where as the st-100a doesnt.

my thoughts exactly

I've seen some SICK sounds come out of the 5150, loads of bottom end, yet not bogged out, and a very "salty", yet amazingly precise distortion

depends on what you get BLS, E530s only 450 about new and sounds pretty close to the savage if you get a nice power amp to go with it.

eh, not really. it sounds nothing like the Savage, I have a Savage and a 620 preamp. the 620 is the same as a 530 but a little more simple, and outdated. but the basic circuitry is the same. the savage is much more brutal and its more versatile. though the 530 does have the Engl sound.

530's are about 400 here, used.

Thunder heads go for 700 new, Screamers for 900 new, Powerballs go for 1400 or so, they're 1800 new. Fireballs are 1200 new, and go for like 8-900 used. Savage 120's go for 2300 new, E670's (Savage ltd edition with midi) for about 3000.


I think xdx meant to say 'you can get a fireball' at the same price of a 530+ a nice poweramp. that would sound about right. if you lay down 400 for a nice poweramp.

well, i meant that it sounds closer to the savage than the powerball, because someone asked about that on the harmony central amp forum...

But you didn't hear it for yourself, did you?

try and find them all in one shop and find out for yourself, the savage slays the fireball/powerball, the 530 is really different then both tops. ofcourse it depends on the poweramp you're using too. tone-wise I'de say it sounds like an Engl in general, but not like any of their tops. I haven't played it with an engl poweramp though, it was hooked up to a mesa 2:50. which I'm not particulary fond of...
