Egnater'sRebel-30 MKII Head is the next generation of the Rebel 30 with the features you've been asking for. They've upped the gain on channel 2 and given it a more aggressive tone and feel. Channel has even more clean headroom with a lower noise floor. They've kept the unique Egnater features such as the TUBE MIX knob, giving you access to an incredible variety of tones from American to British and the silent record mode that actually replaces the speaker with an internal load so all the great power tube character is retained. Channel 1 delivers rich cleans with controls for volume, treble and bass. Channel 2 dishes out powerful, touch-responsive overdrive with treble, middle and bass EQ, as well as a wide-range gain knob that takes you from growl to scream. Both channels feature Egnater's signature BRIGHT and TIGHT switches and each channel has its own WATTS knob so you can access both low-wattage crunch and serious clean headroom, or any combination between 1 to 30 watts.
Under the hood you will find Elite Transformers with substantially greater headroom and industrial-grade red FR4 glass epoxy circuit boards with beefed up copper traces to name just a few of the improvements.
The REBEL-30 MARK II back panel holds more welcome surprises, such as independent REVERB controls for each channel and a tone-preserving series effects loop. The speaker-emulated line out lets you go directly to the board live or in the studio. Set the standby switch to ˜Silent Record' for great direct-recorded tones that spare both your ears and your neighbors. A dual-function footswitch for channel selection and reverb on/off is included. Combine the Rebel-30 Head with a pair of Rebel-112x cabs for a perfect mini-stack.
The scalable Watts control on each channel of the REBEL-30 MARK II varies from 1W to 30W, so you can dial in rich, responsive tube tone at any volume level. Vary the wattage easily - go from the studio to the stage.
Tube Mix Knob
TUBE MIX lets you dial in the rich American tones of the 6V6 power tubes, the British-style bark and chime of the EL84s, or to blend them for an endless variety of sounds.
XLR Silent Record Output
Egnater's innovative and natural sounding direct record output delivers every ounce of Rebel-30 Mark II all-tube tone without the need of a microphone or speaker. The balanced XLR output is wired after the power amp so every control, including the tube mix, wattage control, plus tight and bright switches are always engaged. Use this XLR output to replace microphones during live stage use or set to Silent mode and record at full power in your bedroom or studio without waking up the neighbors.

Comments about Egnater Rebel-30 Mark II 30W Guitar Tube Head:
This is my first tube amp but I have heard and played some other tube amps before. It's very versatile. The clean channel sounds especially awesome. With the tube mix you can get some British chime or American sweetness. It doesn't change a lot like a modeling amp, but it's definitely noticeable. The watts knobs doesn't lower down the volumn much. It's more of a headroom thing. With 1 watt it breaks up really early and with 30 watts it has plenty headroom. The overdrive channel is dark and midrange heavy, so I always turn on the tight switch. But still you get the Santana smooth overdrive sound which is good for blues. Both channels take pedals well. If you like a metal sound, you can use pedals with the clean channel to get a scooped mids sound. I live in a small apartment so I always use the XLR with the silent record option. It sounds really good, though a little darker than through a cab. I heard that changing the preamp tube V1 to Tungsol and power tubes to JJ el84 and EH 6v6 really improve the sound. I'm going to try it later. Overall really great amp! Definitely worth the money I put in!
