Feedback has a powerball, a screamer 50 and they had a Thunder but that one was sold like two weeks ago.

when are you going there man? I allways go over there for strings and shit, obviously not to buy anything big because they've got SHITTY service there. The powerball they had in the test room wasn't to be touched. haha, first thing I touched was ofcourse, the powerball

I'm not sure when (and if) i'll go. We have two nice stores over in Haarlem to buy strings and stuff. I once went to feedback, but they were closed that day and havent come back. A few days ago I saw on their website that they had some engl stuff, so i'd thought to go and check it sometime.
But if the won't let you even touch the stuff...well...i dunno

i don't get your logic... a preamp and poweramp is basically the same as a head.... the simplest form of a rack... a cheap tube preamp like an ada mp-1 plus something like a peavey classic 50/50... it's like a tube top... you could probably assemble that rack for about $400-500 in the u.s. and i think it's a better rig than most tube tops that go for that much. hell, even over that much.

it depends on how nice... you want something that'll compete with a blue voodoo or a 5150 in both price and sound... there are a number of options that can be had to fit those requirements. if you want something that will compete with a really nice botique head like a bogner xtc, you can get a number of nice rack peices in that quality and price range.

well, I said 'good' rack gear didn't I

If I want something like the sound I get from my Engl, it'll set me back more then it'de cost me to buy a new powerball.

Ofcourse you can get cheap rack gear too, but if you want good stuff, better dish out that cash. a good head is cheaper overall. If you're just starting out you're just as well of with a randall rh100 instead of a cheapass rack with ss poweramp.
Over here rackgear is pretty hard to find anyways so its a bit more expensive then in the US I think.

Haha no... I live in the Netherlands, wich is located next to Germany. Its a small country, so you I can enter Germany on the eastborder in 3 hours from the westcoast. Altough, traveling 6 hours to try an amp, i'll not do it that easily

obvisously you've never played an mp-1? one of the biggest underdog preamps ever imo. they're retardedly cheap and really good.

how much did your savage run you? i bet you could slap a rack that's just as good together for about the same price.
it wouldnt sound "identical" which might create the illusion that it's not as good if you find your savage to be the best to your ears.

your 'really good' is your own illusion. I've played the mp1-3tm even.

you can't slap a good rack together that beats my savage for the price I got it (450 of ebay in a lucky auction ) (I can sell it for like 750 here lol, so it was worth the drive over to germany)

but a full engl rack doesn't get the same tones as a fireball, powerball or savage, they just sound different. you can get close, but its stilll like a simulation

yeah, I've got one

they've only been sold in germany as far as I know and only for a short period I think! you don't see them often...

If I'm lucky, I'll have a powerball this sunday... and one rack setup less!!! (the Savage for at home, the powerball for practise and gigs..)

here's my 60w Savage:

savage sixty

enjoy!

I have a closet you can live it. But the rent is $150 a month, and you have to perform oral service 3 times a day, except sundays.
