Overview

Each of the Egnater Tourmaster guitar amp's channels has an identical set of controls, but that is where the similarities end.

Clean/Vintage 1 is the cleanest of the four. Within this channel lives a range of Classic tones ranging from pristine sparkle with the voicing switch set to MODERN to a punchy, aggressive drive (think clean JTM) in the CLASSIC mode. Pressing the button to activate the CONTOUR control opens an entire new range of beautiful clean, almost acoustic, tones not often found in a tube amplifier.

Clean/Vintage 2 has a very similar voicing to the Clean/Vintage 1 channel. This channel has more gain, so it can be pushed into mild overdrive. Sweet blues and classic rock tones are easily coaxed out of this channel. The contour knob adds another level of unique flavors.

Overdrive 1: From AC/DC crunch to modern rock, this channel covers a lot of bases all by itself. Dial down the gain and the feel is pure classic rock. Push the gain and enter into more modern, saturated territory. Scoop the mids with the CONTOUR control for monstrous metal or set it for classic British rhythm.

Overdrive 2: The Tourmaster's most intense channel, you'll find ferocious gain with a wide range of tones to suit the '80s shredder as well as the heaviest modern metal player. Scoop the mids with the powerful CONTOUR control for massive crunch or push the midrange for a solo tone that cuts through with serious authority.

Power Grid: This is a really cool feature your will only find on the Egnater Tourmaster amps. Using a group of 5 slide switches on the rear panel, you can set the power output for each channel individually. There is a 3-position slide switch corresponding to each of the four channels and a single FULL POWER/ HALF POWER slide switch. In FULL POWER mode, you can choose between 100w, 50w or 25w per channel. In the HALF POWER mode, you can between choose 50w, 25w or 10w per channel.

With the Tourmaster 4212 tube amp, you not only have a wide array of tones available from the preamp channels, but with the Power Grid you can introduce any amount of power tube distortion you wish to each channel: all preset, all automatic.

The Tourmaster 4212 amplifier is loaded with custom-voiced Egnater Elite-80 speakers from Celestion, and includes heavy duty detachable casters and metal slide handles.

I've had my Tourmaster for about 3-4 months and I'm still amazed by the sounds I come up with. I'm playing both an early 90's American Standard Strat and a Duesenberg Carl Carlton through my 'Nater without any effects and it's been one of the most satisfying guitar playing experiences I've had. It growls and howls when I want it to (which is where I spend most of my time) and it's completely clean and bright for a more 'acoustic' sound with the Duesenberg (it's nice to have the option). This combo is solid, heavy and well-built. The Power Grid is a great feature - playing with the power gives you control over the distortion without the need for an overdrive pedal. If you're looking for a solid, versatile tube amp - you can't go wrong with a Tourmaster... especially at this price.

Maybe I had bad luck with my Egnater 4212 combo. I've owned it for less than two years,
and has been in the shop twice for a burnt power rectifier. The fuse would blow, and then it would not turn on. I would replace the fuse and it would blow again. I was told by repairman that internal parts are all made in China, and not built to last. I guess that's par for the course with most products these days anyway. Anyway, on my second time in the shop, I noticed someone else had dropped off theirs for repair too! Coincidence?
Also, this amp is a back-breaker, weighing in at 95 pounds. If you gig regularly, it gets old lugging this beast around.
Anyway, I'm selling mine as soon as it gets out of the shop. Let someone with more time lug this thing into the repair shop.
Also I live in Boston, and surprised at the lack of Authorized Service Techs that cover Egnater warranties. I had to drive a long way for service.
To Egnater's credit, the customer service is decent(they actually answer the phone when you call), and they backup the lifetime warranty.
And to support the other reviews here, this is a great sounding amp.
The tone shaping options on each channgel is great. Having four channels to tweak is certainly valuable.
I could have just had bad luck with my amp, but something tells me this particular amp is not going to last as long as your old Fender Twin.
Four different channels to tweak. Two cleans/ two overdrives, each with a Modern/Classic option. Four foot-switchable sounds, 8 configurable overall. It's hard NOT to find a great tone with this amp.
Beware, not all parts made in USA.
This is an excellent price for what you get. Four-channel tube amp: a great idea for a great price.

Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I just purchased this amp at an outstanding price. The features are perfect for venue power requirements, tube self biasing, and effects assignment. The clean channels are very bright but punchy with a great deal of tone. The two overdrive channel sustain is top notch and provides the ability to cover blues to hard rock easy. The two features I absolutely love are the power assignment level per channel and the classic to modern switch. This amp will shape your tone and place you in front of the mix. Gear used: Fender Stratocaster, Gibson Les Paul Studio, and Strymon Timeline for this review.

    Great tone but unreliable

    By Scott Boyle

    from Jefferson City, TN

    Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I purchased my Tourmaster new in 2009, and got approximately 2 years service out of it before it went TU. At that point, the clean 2 channel went out, and shortly thereafter the OD 2 channel started having issues. After a trip to a repair center, and $100.00 of my money it was fixed "under warranty". About a month after it was returned, it failied again at a show when I foolishly decided to use it instead of my "backup" amp that I had been using from the first failure. At the time of this review, it is currently at the service center for repair, after $50.00 of my money, and we will see how long it lasts this time. These amps sound great, however the reliability leaves a lot to be desired. If I had it to do over again, I would NOT buy this amp knowing what I know now. But, mine is one experience and I have read several online reviews of those that have had stellar performance from their Tourmaster. I wish mine had been, as I really like the sound of the amp, when it works.

    Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    Ive played this amp before at a store and like it a lot. I found a great deal on MF for a restock and received a B-Stock amp and out of the box, it looked like an amp that was filthy and poorly cleaned, and it was clearly evident that the back covers were removed several times for servicing (screw heads chewed up). Only the clean channel worked out of 4 and upon opening up and checking the tubes revealed that leaning on the chasis or wiggling the tubes made channel 2, 3 and 4 work, but faded quickly. Upon further inspection, I noticed the tubes were all different with w mix of Egnater (Grove tubes) brand labled, actual Groove Tubes and Ruby tubes, so this thing was clearly repaired and probably several times. Im hoping that the replacement will fair well, MF was awesome in helping me get a new replacement ordered and sent out ASAP, I am pleased with their Customer Service.

    Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    The Tourmaster is a gem of an amplifier. It is heavy in weight, however, probably because of it all-tube electronics. I marvel at the tone...it is hypnotizing once you find your sound. In no other amp have I found so detailed tone controls which allows you to play effectively with different guitars. It has an excellent and warm jazz sound as well as heavy rock or biting blues. I am a happy customer though I have had to send the unit back to the factory as it was on the floor of the store for one year. I can't wait to get it back home.

    Tourmaster 3 year owners update

    By JayF.-b0N4g

    from Pennsylvania

    Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    Speaking as Blues Guitarist; you just won't find a better built or better sounding amp than the Tourmaster.
    I've had this amp for 3 years now and had a problem with blown fuses after 1st year.
    I was told the factory installed fuses were of incorrect value and the authorized service center corrected the problem free of charge. Since then absolutely the best amp I've ever owned in 30+ years of playing. I stacked the combo on top of an EgnaterTourmaster 412 slant cabinet and the tone just blows me away.
    I'm a blues guitarist and I usually keep the amp on the vintage 2 channel with gain turned almost all the way up.
    I would put this amp up against any vintage or reproduction amp anytime when it comes to playing the Blues. No need to turn it up full blast to get great tube tone. I usually have it on 10 watt setting which is very loud.
    I also have the Tourmaster 4100 head and cabinet which has the same great tone.
    Just had to do an updated review to let musicians know what a great amp this really is.
    Rock Solid Construction and Amazing Tone!
    You can't put a value on great tone!

    This amp is AMAZING

    By Andrew Callais

    from Larose, LA

    Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    I bought this amp a year ago when the used Mashall TSL I bought died on me. When I first tried it, I thought I was settling for an amp that wasn't as good. I don't think I've ever been so wrong in my life, this amp is AMAZING. It does everything the TSL did better, and it is much more flexible. Channel one has beautiful cleans that rival any twin reverb in my opinion. Channel two has a little grit to the clean, and is great for some classic rock and blues. Channel three has nice overdriven tones, great for classic rock. And finally, channel four has as much gain as anyone could possibly want, and is great for modern rock and even death metal. This amp really is four amps in one. O, and did i forget to meantion the tube driven reverb? The reverb and overdrive/distortion on this amp are so good that I no longer feel the need to use any of my effects pedals. This amp is capable of every style of music that I've thrown at it. It easily goes from prog rock like Mars Volta, classic rock like Zeppelin, hard rock like Tool, and death metal like Chelsea Grin, and all at just the touch of a foot switch. The power grid is also a very cool feature. You can change the output of each channel individually to 10, 25, 50, or 100 watts. This is very useful for record/practicing at low levels and then being able to go straight into rehearsing with a full band. This amp is LOUD at 100 watts. I have yet to turn it up past half way and it still blew me away. I haven't any problems with the amp since I bought it, its been very reliable. The two tone tolex is also a nice touch. It makes the look amp classy and stand out. The only downside to the amp is its weight (about 100 lbs.). It makes it a huge pain to move the amp from my house to the practice space at my drummer's house. I may buy a small amp to keep at my home and practice and leave this monster with the band equipment. This amp is a bit pricey at $1,700, but it is in the same range of quality and sound as Mesas, Marshalls, and Oranges, which are much more expensive. If you're in the market for a great high end guitar amp, buy this amp. You won't regret it.

    Not worth the dough, better amps for the price

    By Bronchick

    from Denver, CO

    Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    Overall, I will dissent from the others and say this amp is so-so in sound. I was expecting much better when I ordered it, but ended up returning it after a few hours of playing around.
    Lots of features, especially the ability to dial down each channel's power.
    Solid, well built
    Not that great of a sound. The first and second channel and very close. The third channel is a crunch that can be obtained through most good pedals. The lead channel screams, that's the best one. But overall, the sound is no better than a Fender DeVille with a few choice pedals. I am comparing it to the Blackstar HT-60 which I have and the Bogner Shiva. Shiva is quite a bit more money but blows this amp away. Blackstar is about even with it, but costs a lot less.

    Egnater Tourmaster 4212 - AMAZING

    By Jeffrey Tayama

    from Columbus, OH

    Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    Excellent. I am planning to get another smaller Egnateror 2-channel head and cab for gigs and leaving my combo at home for practice since it weighs a ton.
    Amazing amp. So versatile and can fit any genre of music and is LOUD!
    Excellent. Great tone! The lows sound great the highs are crisp, from the cleanest channel to the dirtiest. Wattage grid on the back helps immensely. You can't really tell the difference until you turn the volume past approximate the 10 o'clock mark. The record out feature is great too. Only a little bit of the tone is lost, but it is miniscule and when recording, you add anything that's lacking. Footpedal is solid enough and the lights are bright enough to see in bright light. FX works great and I love the controls for the FX loops in the back of the amp. Of course, the tube mix knobs as well as the Classic and Modern selectors is what really makes this amp shine.

    The bad thing about this amp is that it weighs what seems to be as much as a house! Of course, when you have 12 tubes, what do you expect. I should have thought a little long about it and gotten the head and a 2x12 cab. Luckily it comes with wheels, which aren't the best. I'd advise replacing them with more rubbery wheels to make it smoother.

    Handles are made well and heavy duty. The inputs and outputs seem to be pretty durable too.
    I'd say, for the price, it's a great value as you're getting a few amps in one.
