ENGL Amp Spotlight: Invader II E642II

ENGL Amp Spotlight: Invader II E642II

There's an old saying in music and other parts of life: "less is more". But sometimes, it's actually more accurate to say that more is indeed more... and that's what you get from the ENGL Invader II, the follow-up to one of ENGL's most acclaimed amps of all time. 

If you’re on the hunt for peerless tones and variety, the Invader II gives you a flexibility that is second to none. A whopping number of 16 (yes, 16!) sounds are the base from which you can discover new worlds of sound. You can also use the optional Sound Wizard Module (SWM Z16) with the Invader II - a slot and connection port on the back of the amp that are ready for this purpose. Using the Z16’s 96 micro rocker switches, you can comprehensively tweak your tones at any gain setting... it’s a dream come true for all tone hunters! And if you’re wondering where the 16 "base" sounds come from: there are four channels, each with low and high gain modes (for a total of eight sounds), plus the Sound switch, which alters your tone based on your channel and gain settings. All this is, of course, controllable via MIDI, and with a 3-band EQ per channel, noise gate and comprehensive connection options on-board, there’s nothing the Invader II can’t do!
