Overview

The Egnater Tweaker-40 112 40 watt tube guitar combo amp is an expansion of the award winning Tweaker-Series and is packed with the features tone tweakers have been asking for. The Tweaker-40 112 combo offers the classic tonal characteristics of the original Tweaker with more than double the power, 6L6 tubes, and two independent channels, each with an expanded set of Tweaker switches. This open-back combo is loaded with a 12" custom-voiced Celestion Elite GH-50 speaker.

The Tweaker-40 112's 11 onboard Tweaker switches provide a wide range of vintage tones, from ultra-pristine cleans to oversaturated leads. Use the USA/AC/BRIT switch to dial in your choice of American, British, or VX EQ. The Hot/Clean selector takes you on a journey from low to high gain, while the Vintage/Modern switch transforms the amp's feel from classic rock to modern edge. The Mid Cut switch sculpts the critical midrange while Egnater's signature Tight and Bright switches let you shape the low and high-end.

I am a bass player, but i do play some guitar. For years, i noodled around on small combo amps with less that inspiring sounds. I also do some home recording. I really wanted an amp that could produce more than just one signature sound. This amp can do tha and do it very well. All the sounds it says it can reproduce, it can. I really like the stock speaker. I think it sounds great in this amp. Overall i would say this amp leans to a slightly darker sound of a amp spectrum. Not very dark, but just slightly. Of course, some new tubes can change the character of any amp. I am speaking in is stock format. The lack of reverb might be an issue for some people, but a good pedal in the effects loop will take care of that. I am very satisified with my purchase. Its loud, has great tone, versitile and well made.

I have owned this amp for a little over a year now. The first time the power supply went out it was still under the 30 day guitar center satisfaction guarantee period so I traded it in for a new one at the store, I should have gotten out then. The next one lasted about three months and then the power supply went out. I had to ship it back to Egnater in California at cost to me, but they fixed it, it only took them two months. This time around it lasted about 10 months, the power supply went out again. It's still under warranty but my emails to customer service go un-answered, search engager customer support before you buy one of these. Also search egnater power supply, apparently this model is not the only one with problems. I don't recommend this amp or anything made by Egnater. As a side note I must say that I am not in a band and I don't tour this amp, It never leaves my studio. I have a power conditioner and a room full of gear that has never given me problems over the years. I don't think that the power at my house has anything to do with this amp biting the dust so many times.

4 month old failure

By BRAD MILLER

from Covington, KY

This review will be a work in progress. I purchased the Tweaker 40 combo amp in November 2013. I play most weekends with a local band. Midway through the 3rd set Saturday night, it failed. Would not power up - no lights - nothing. I am not abusive to equipment and always run my stuff through power conditioners. Luckily, my old Peavey from the 1980s I keep for a back up continues to work after over 30 years. I have followed Egnater's instructions for warranty. I'd also purchased the Guitar Center 3 year warranty. We'll see what happens with this. The amp has good tone and sounds great - very useful - IF IT WORKS. I'll follow this up when I find out the end result of my warranty claim.

One of the best amp purchases I have ever made

By Nathan Barton

from Denver, CO

I have been playing for over 20 years. I have owned a lot of really nice tube amps. I picked up the Egnater last week on clearance from my GC in Denver, and I have to say that this is easily one of my favorite amp purchases ever. It's really flexible. Good gain sounds, lots of low end for a 1x12 cab, and surprisingly it doesn't get farty.

Best amp I ever owned

By Leonardo Rodriguez

from NJ

I was looking for an all tube solution with great tone and this baby does it all. After tweaking it to the sound I want it has become my all time favorite amp. Surprisingly without distortion pedals it has some really nice crunch as well but the clean tones are great for blues or what ever you want to play.

Awesome amp. Buy it.

By Brent Riddick

from Virginia Beach, VA

I have been playing the Tweaker 15 for about a year now. The Tweaker 15 is a great amp but it lacked the power and head room that I needed for gigging. I also wanted two channels to switch from rhythm and lead. After reading many reviews on 40 watt combos, I went with the Tweaker 40. The Tweaker 40 had almost all the features I wanted. There are only two cons that I have with the Tweaker 40, but at the price it sells for, it is really unfair to expect the feature I feel are lacking. I wish it had separate EQ controls for each channel (both channels share one set of EQ). I also wish it had separate tone stacks for each channel. It would have been sweet to set one channel on the USA tone stack and the other on the BRIT tone stack (both channels share the same tone stack). But like I say, for the money, this is BEST amp out there. You can get ANY tone you want from this amp, with maybe the exception of metal. For what play, mostly rock and blues, this puts any other combo amp in its class to same. Way to go Bruce. This is plan on having this thing a really long time.

Best gig amp ever!!!

By Thomas Hedrick

from Florida!

I am a working musician who has used all of the amps that first come to mind - Marshall, Mesa, Fender, etc... After I sold my Mesa Mark V I had quite a bit of cash to work with and settled on this little devil. This little amp, along with the 1X12 matching cab is not only my current gig amp but I have plans to buy another one so my back up is also a tweaker 40! Seriously folks...this amp does it all. The cleans can get as clean as you want and can also be "tweaked" to give some of the most heart wrenching break up I've personally ever gotten out of an amp. The crunchy settings can be very Marshall like and are not "fuzzy" at all - good tube overdrive for crunch. When I first got the amp I set it up to have two identical channels with one being a bit louder than the other. Now, I have it set up a bit more conventional, one clean and one dirty channel. Either way it worked out...may go back to the other arrangement. Look at all of the other reviews, search the web, etc...You won't find anyone who has played it say a bad thing about it - awesome job Egnater!!! I'm a customer for life!

Great Amp!

By David Balser

from Columbus,Ohio

I switched from Marshall to Egnater about three years ago with the purchase of a Renegade head and Tourmaster cabinet. I loved this amp but it was just too powerful for club venues. I was fascinated with the reviews on the Tweaker series so I purchased the Tweaker 40 combo. This is the perfect amp for most venues. It is compact, powerful, and highly versatile. I would recommend this amp for anyone wanting an all-tube amp with all that is needed to create your personal sound with the flick of a switch. Way to go Egnater!!

worth every penny

By Clint Adams

from Bothell, Washington

I have played and owed numerous amps including Fender and Marshall. This time I wanted something for a combo amp and wanted something with a modern, but classic sound. I hit the streets trying to find a older Marshall, but no aval. Instead I found the Egnater Tweeker 40. I am VERY picky when it comes to my equipment, and from the first time I plugged in I was in love. Old school rock, clean sharp funk and blues,and wicked metal. It has some extra switches for the channels and tones, but is not overly complicated. Before you buy anything else, play this amp.

I like this amp

By Captain Mike

from Berkeley, CA

I play blues and rock, have been looking for the right amp for a long time now - and think I finally found it. I have not played it out yet, so the final verdict has to wait until after the next 20 gigs to see if the thing actually lived through the experience. So far I'd say the amp has a beautiful break-up and the sweet tone stays constant throughout the entire volume range, unlike other amps I used that had to be cranked until the windows rattled to produce a good tone. Where most amps have a clean and dirty channel, this one has 2 identical channels that can either be adjusted to be clean/dirty or to sound similar while using different guitars. The next experiment will be to hook up the harmonica mic via an aby switch to use channel 2 for the harp when I don't play guitar to save me from carrying an extra amp - I would like to hear from harp players who tried this amp. And yes, as another poster stated: There is no storage for the power cord & foot switch, and no cover. That's kind of a really dumb thing to do for the smart people who engineered this beautiful amp..... Still, the tone alone is worth the 5 stars, so there. I'd recommend this amp to folks who play anything from BB, John Lee, Jimi, SRV, Almann Bros to ZZ-Top - and I'd definitely recommend it to all the alternative/punk crowds who usually bring Marshall-Plexi's into the neighborhood joints and crank them up to 11. This amp should deliver the tone you're looking for at lower volumes and might save your ears for future use, give it a try. Thanks for reading, have an excellent day.
