Pure, uncompromising metal amp plugin

Nembrini Audio En Hardball Guitar Amplifier plugin is based on a ENGL Powerball II* .

EN Hardball Metal Head Guitar Amplifier is a pure, uncompromising metal amp plugin. This is the way of modern metal! But the EN Hardball also produces crystal clear Clean tones, crispy Crunch, dense solo sounds and everything in between.

Its four Channels are optimally matched to each other so that all the degrees of distortion fit together seamlessly. Every gain setting is differentiated and delivered with razor-sharp attack. Total joy for any guitar with drop tunings!

  • Tight : reduces low frequency content tightening the low range, suitable for 7/8 strings guitars
  • Rumbling: reduces the low-frequency content
  • Harsh: reduces the high-frequency content
  • Threshold: defines the level where the gate is activated
  • Range: selects the quantity of noise reduction
  • Gate : Adjust the gate speed

With Nembrini Audio EN Hardball Guitar Amplifier is possible to choose between six different guitar cabinets, four microphone emulations with on/off axis position switch, continuous position and distance knobs. A complete Mixer section with Solos, Mutes, Pans and Faders allows you to blend together the two microphones with the ambience.


Impulse Loader lets you load up to three third-party impulse responses that you can even blend together using volume, pan, phase, solo and mute controls.

Awesome plugin!

Works great with various tunings, great clean sounds as well.

William Dahl
Great Sound

Easy to use. It a little confusing trying to save a pre set. But it rocks

Not onyl for Metal! But also, of course!

Certainly not an amp (plugin) for everybody. But also much more than just a Metal amp plugin.

Not only, but also the perfect choice for guitars with dropped tunings, seven-, eight-string or baritone guitars, due to the tight basic voicings, even more in combination with the additional Tight control.

Typical, maybe even more "metallized" Engl sounds, but due to the several switches (Bright, Bass boost, Mid boost,...) also more decent, not only Metal compatible voicings are adjustable.

This is no amp, on which every setting automatically sounds right, but once you have adjusted the controls right - in combination with the used guitar and cabinet - you get absolutely fantastic sounds.

Also due to the immense gain, but also treble reserves sometimes less is more here.

Especially the harmonics reproduction and reaction to pick attack is iconic and lets you forget, that this is "only" a plugin and not the real amp itself. Very much like a good, old Plexi, but only on double steroids and much hotter and heavier.

Due to the tons of gain this plugin is comparably more noisy than some others. I also found, that adjusting threshold alone, which usually works fine for me, is not enough here. If I want to let some tones ring out, the tail still included some noise again or the signal was cut off too early, but with the three controls you can adjust the Noise Gate to your playing style well, it only lasted some time to find my personal best setting.

Highly recommended!
