  • Tech 21 Power Engine 60...

    It doesn't have a pre-amp. It's supposed to be "transparent" and let the tone of whatever pre-amp effects/multi-effects unit you have shine through.

    I like the sound of that.

    Have any of you guys had good/bad experiences with the Power Engine 60 or any other Tech 21 products?

      I've heard about the Atomic, but have never actually read any articles or heard any user opinions. I'll definantly have to check it out though...

        That Atomic Reactor looks pretty cool for a POD owner...but the little pocket thing wouldn't accomodate any much bigger than the POD...$499.00 is a bit much too!

        The Power Engine will add 60watts of tranparent power to any preamp...if you need more power, you can chain as many Power Engines together as you want & still not affect your original tone... individual level control, 3-band active tone controls, and balanced XLR input, 1/4" input and balanced XLR output.

        They can also be used with any direct recording device or acoustic pre-amp, analog or digital, tube or solid state, in stomp box or rackmount formats, from any manufacturer...not just Tech21, although a Tri-AC thru a Power Engine would be pretty bada$$.

        For $250.0 +/-, they are pretty sweet! For the same amount of money as the Atomic Reactor, you could get 2 Power Engines & add 60watts in stereo/120w mono
