ENGL 860 Rackhead. Very rare, very exclusive. The 860 was produced in the 90s as an “all in one” three channel tube preamp plus a 2 x 50 Watts stereo tube power amp, combined in just 2 rack spaces. The preamp section with the clean, crunch and lead channels is based on the E650 Richie Blackmore signature amp and provides sparkling clean tones, classic crunch tone up to modern metal and fat solo tones. Like the E650, all channels share a single set of EQ controls. But unlike many other amps the three channels are carefully balanced against each other and once set, the amp needs almost no tweaking at all. Compared to newer ENGL amps, the 860 has less compression and more dynamics. Using the very uncommon configuration of 8 EL84 power tubes, this amp has a very special power amp section. Neither as raw as a EL34s nor as chimey as 6L6s, this amp provides a modern interpretation of a classic EL84 power section.

This pack contains 40 completely new merged profiles with
– 5 clean profiles using Jensen G12K and Celestion G12H30 speakers in a Marshall 1960 cab
– 13 crunch profiles using Celestion G12M25 Greenback speakers in Marshall 1960 TV cab
– 17 high gain profiles using mixes of Marshall 1960 and Recto 4 x 12 oversize cabs
– 5 solo profiles using mixes of Marshall 1960 and Recto 4 x 12 Oversize cabs

The rigs contain 40 completely new and individual merged cab sections that also make perfect partners to combine with other amp profiles. Included in the pack are also the 40 cabs as local presets.

Remark: Since all profiles are merged, cab users will get a realistic amp performance. However, full range monitoring systems are highly recommended since a lot of the “magic” in the individual rigs lies within the cab sections. Please also deactivate the “Pure cab” option on the KPA to get a more precise impression of the cab details.

As a little teaser here´s a pack of 6 free test profiles:
