So, it looks like I AM getting an Engl Powerball 2 after all! I'm stoked. The #blackhawkamplifiers LOKI and the Mjolnir that's being finished will still be my main amps (always), but I've wanted one of these since the first Engl I ever tried which was the first Powerball. I was surprised by how much I dug it. So I think having a 2 as a backup and to be able to get more clinical gain and cleans will be a lot of fun and super useful! It's not an an Invader 2 or an SE, but it's already more than I really need. Hahaha Sort of indulgent, but whatever. I like fucking with buttons. #kereskills #obscurefiresofanearthenking
So... Just found out that THIS is on its way to me as of today, courtesy of Brooks Blackhawk at Blackhawk Amplifiers!! Oh man, I can't wait to try out our new riffs with this thing. 🔥 #blackhawkamps#blackhawkamplifiers#kereskills

So a for the prototype tube preamp I went with this very sharp angled housing to allow for a smaller footprint. Is it too much like a weird Cold War Russian nuclear power plant console or do you all dig it?
