Overview

Plug into the three-channel, 120W Egnater Armageddon guitar amp head and join the new world order! Channel 1 produces full, rich cleans that will calm you between bursts of aggression. Channels 2 and 3 share tone controls like a two-headed beast shares its body. Finesse your tonal mastery using Egnater's signature Tight/Bright voicing switches.

Those venturing into the world of extreme gain know the ISP Decimator is an essential weapon. ISP has teamed up with Egnater, building their Decimator G-String noise reduction right into Armageddon, resulting in a dead-silent amplifier that screams with gain. The master midrange controls allow for fine tuning the precise amount of mid cut or boost.

The independent reverb controls on each channel allow you to dial in just a touch of reverb or soak your tone in it. The included 7-button footswitch gives you control over every amp feature. MIDI IN and THRU connections, as well as external setup switches mean no matter what MIDI setup you're using, Armageddon can integrate into your rig.

NO REGRETS

By Jared William

from Texas

Comments about Egnater Armageddon 120W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I bought this head about 9 months ago and don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon. The built in Reverb and ISP Decimator are SUPERB. This head has great clear sounding cleans, along with 2 additional channels of absolute power. I've used it plenty for recording and couldn't ask for a better tone. Solid buy from what I've gotten out of it, the price is defiantly worth it. The build quality is on point as well. No corners cut on the product.

Massive Wall of Sound

By Scott Dexter

from Butler, Kentucky

Comments about Egnater Armageddon 120W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I basically play most styles of music, I am however, not a chicken picker. This is not a chicken picker amp in my opinion, though, I am sure you could dial in the tones for it. It has an amazing range of options available. First The Cons: The con to this amp is the shared EQ section between the 2nd and 3rd channels. The Pros: Best clean tone on a (metal, hard rock) amp that I have ever heard, if you like the clean tone on a 4100 tourmaster, this isn't much different. Add the tight, bright and gain switches and it is all gravy. You can play jazz, country, blues easily with this channel. The second channel likewise has the 3 switches of tight, bright and gain. With distortion they become more pronounced, tight give a more chunky and articulate tone, bright boosts the treble output, gain adjusts a certain amount of gain boost. This channel, would satisfy most metal heads! The third channel, has the same gain structure, possibly a bit more, but trust me, it has all the gain you would want. It has a lot of gain. Pinch harmonics are a breeze. This channel rules the metal kingdom. It has the same switches and here is where you can take yourself to 3 channel land. There is a mid boost, this can add mid-range punch and boost, (foot switchable) I found it to work best on the lead channel in a 3 piece band, to cut through over my bass players 800 watt rig. The effects loop is foot switchable as well and you can assign it to any or all channels. The send and return both have level controls so you can really get the right sound out of the loop that you want without having it hardwired in like most effects looks. I find most to either be thin or grainy. Reverb is foot switchable and can be assigned to any channel and the level can be independently adjusted by channel. Really a nice feature. ISP Descimator, noise reduction at it's finest. If you find it cutting out a little too early, you have it set too high, lower it, it is not meant to completely eliminate noise, but to reduce and manage feedback. At full volume, you can really play staccato with little to no bleed through. Overall, this amp is astounding. I did not get the cabinet, I have an old Peavey XXL cab, I configured stereo with G12T75 celestions, same as 1960A & B Marshall cabs, I love those speakers. I felt as if the Egnater cab, was a little too bottom heavy for me, and I like a lot of low end. The

A Truly Versatile Tube Amp Head

By Matt Grunwald

from Frederick, MD

Comments about Egnater Armageddon 120W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

As of the time of writing this review, I've owned my Armageddon for about 8 months, and have used it extensively. I have only praise for what this thing does, because everything that I have thus far thrown at it has been handled beautifully by this amp. I'll start with the bad part first just to get it out of the way. It's a little pricey, and the built in ISP noise gate isn't enabled on the clean channel. Oh, and its a bit heavy. There, done. Now, on to the good bits. Here's a quick rundown of its features: It has 3 channels, a clean, a crunch, and a heavy distortion channel, of which the clean channel has its own EQ and level knob, and the two overdrive/distortion channels share an EQ (with individual level knobs). Each channel also has additional tone-shaping capabilities through individual on/off toggles: "tight", "bright", and "gain". These allow you to add or remove extra bass, treble/presence, or gain (to an ungodly level) with the flip of a switch. EQ for each channel is straightforward, with bass, mid, and treble knobs. From there, it has a few more interesting and nice features: a master presence knob, a master density knob, as well as a mid-boost (with depth and level knobs) which can be toggled on/off. Finally, one of the coolest parts of this head is the built-in ISP Decimator noise gate. So not only do you get a fantastic amp but you also get one of the best noise gate stomp-boxes available! What a deal! Also, there are channel specific reverb knobs on the back, as well as a series FX loop with send/return levels, switchable load impedance from 4-8-16, and an XLR input for the foot pedal included with the amp. Another nice feature of this whole package is the fact that many of the functions that are on the head itself can be toggled and controlled by the foot pedal; reverb, mid-boost, noise-gate, as well as the usual channel switching. Also included is a nifty-fancy soft cover for travel. Now for the even better bits: how's it sound? In a word, excellent. Just by using the head itself, without FX or additional EQ, you can get anything from jazz, to blues, to ska, to rock, to crushing heaviness, to whatever hippy nonsense you might be into (and I tried it all out too!). It really does do it all, and very well; all the tone shaping this unit is capable of leaves you with a blank canvas that you can dial in whatever tone you want. Quality wise, I'll be frank: this thing is built like a brick-house that's cased in enough lead and concrete to survive a nuclear apocalypse. For example, the DAY AFTER I GOT IT, one of my idiot band-mates stacked it on its side in his car. Guess what happened when he opened the door. Yup. Hit the asphalt. After overcoming the urge to beat him to within an inch of his life, I took it inside, turned it on gingerly, and made sure all was well. 8 months later, its working like nothing even happened in the first place. Looking at the outside of it, the pictures don't do it justice, but even they show how much this head oozes awesome like an over-ripe peach that's sat in the sun for 3 days. Well, rotten peaches don't ooze awesome, but you get the idea. Look at the pictures! Its like a cross between an Engl and a Mesa on the outside. All it needs is a viking beard and you're ready to chop heads! TL;DR: If you have the cash, decent biceps, and a hankering for a sick 120W tube amp head, look no further.

Awesome amplifier tone

By Ron Siwicki

from Winnipeg, Manitoba

Comments about Egnater Armageddon 120W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

A Great Rock amplifier for any style of music I love the Egnater Armageddon amp for all the great sounds you can get out of it. It has rich clean sounds and great sounding reverb. If you want high end sparkle without harshness the bright switch is great for that. Channel two gives you a wide range of overdrive sounds and channel three will give you awesome super high gain rip your face off overdrive distortion that thrills. You can preset each channel or footswitch on the fly midrange scoop or boost to gets instant tone change. The ISP noise suppressor is such a pleasure to use to get rid of pick up squeal, hiss and hum that you would get with other amps and it is footswitchable while you are playing. It tracks the guitar signal instead of the noise so it doesn't cut of the tail end of the notes off or affect the tone. This amp just ROARS with amazing TONE !!!!! I got the great clean sound I was looking for and the beautiful reverb. I love the variable master midrange boostor cut to get honk or scoop for tone versatility.The amp sound and features are more than I expected. I've owned the amp for over a year and has worked perfectly with no problems. I t is very well built with good quality parts. The amp looks great and the controls have a solid smooth feel. The weight is right for the amp being not too light and not too heavy. The colors have not faded and it still looks like new. I use it at my gig every Friday and Saturday. I love this amp and its tone and features.
