Overview

The ultracompact 15W Egnater Tweaker amp head is all-tube amazing. The Egnater head serves up unique and sophisticated all-tube tone with seemingly endless variations via onboard "Tweaker" selector switches. Powered by a pair of 6V6 power tubes, the Egnater Tweaker is a perfect choice for a gigging micro amp.

The amp head's gain, EQ, and master sections each have a Tweaker switch providing a wide range of tones from the ultra smooth and satisfying to fully over-saturated for playing leads.

Hidden inside the Egnater Tweaker head is a vast array of tones not usually found in amps with such a compact design. Each of the 5 toggle switches on the front changes the head's character. The Tight and Bright switches shape the low and high end from soft and smooth to punchy and aggressive. The Gain switch goes from sparkly clean to an all-out high-gain assault. The EQ switch selects from pristine American to classic Brit and even the illusive VX AC sound. The Classic/Modern voicing switch delivers either soft and smooth or hard and edgy power tube tone. It's all in there to satisfy the ultimate "Tweaker."

Egnater's matching Tweaker 112X partially open-back cab boasts birch-ply construction. Egnater loads it with a Celestion G12H-30 speaker for vintage sound.

The Tweaker is exactly that. You can see all of the specs here so I won't elaborate on that. Suffice it to say, the Tweaker provides with dozens of tone-sculpting options that will enable you to recreate various vintage tones and a few new ones. This amp is most useful in low to mid gain. Personally I find the the gain over 3 o'clock far too muddy to be useful. This is not a terribly useful amp for metal, though I have not had a chance to tried boosted settings yet. My favorites are definitely the US and AC EQ settings w/ Modern voicing in Clean. The Tight/Deep and Bright/ Normal toggles are exceptionally useful in every mode and lend colors of Blackface to Bassman and AC15 to Top Boost in the USA/AC modes. The Brit channel I have played less with as it does not sound as stout as I expect a Marshall too. I think this may be just an issue of power as I have not been able to crank the amp to see how it affects the tone in this mode. I also plan on trying EL34s in place of the stock 6V6 tubes. This is supported as evidenced by the videos of the amp posted on Egnater's site. The matching cabinet is a highpoint. Constructions is exceptionally solid and the tone is very well directed for 3/4 open back cabinet and bass is stout, not flubby or muffled as I usually expect in open back cabs. The Celestion G1230 is an excellent match for this cab and is quickly becoming my favorite speaker and cabinet. Overall loudness could easily keep up with the all but the most obnoxious drummers out there (though it might have to be dimed to do it stock). Playing through a good 4x12 you could probably still maintain some good clean headroom in a band situation and use pedals to add dirt.

Just plugged into this baby at the New Orleans store and was pleased�ۡ��_mostly. The clean side of this amp does not disappoint. Using the bright switch makes this baby ring crystal clear which is something that I have noticed with every other amp from Egnater. Now on to the dirty side. The eq section of this amp has a switch for different settings. I would not go as far to say that it is modeling but it is on the same lines. AC sounds a little like a Vox, USA sounds somewhat like a Peavey and Brit tries but fails to emulate a Marshall. The distortion on this amp was quite surprising I will have to admit that. I thought a boutique brand like Egnater would drop the ball due to other my experiences with boutique brands (I�ۡ���m looking at you Bogner). I was actually able to get a good metal sound out of it which is shocking because the amp looks like it has no power�ۡ��_boy was I wrong. Even tough the distortion has a good thump when you crank the volume it does loose its clear sound. This is probably due to the low wattage. When Egnater drops this baby in a 40w or higher they will have a line wrapped around the building

    Comments about Egnater Tweaker Series Head and Tweaker 1x12 Half Stack:

    I've been jamming with a lot of different local people lately. I have a Blackstar HT 60 amp that I was tired of lugging around from place to place and I was looking for something lighter, but with the same tone qualities and flexibility of my Blackstar (which is an amazing amp).

    So I did the typical Google search looking at ratings and reviews and the Egnator Tweaker was rated high by quite a few people. They were spot on!

    This rig is absolutely amazing. A few things that really blew me away:
    - 15W of sheer warm tube power. For 15w rig, I've never once had a problem of being drowned out by a drummer or slightly over zealous bass players ;-). The head/speaker has plenty of volume for jamming with other people - and, it keeps its tone whether at low levels or cranked up.
    - All tube - I don't need to say anymore - in this small of a package, I think Egnater really maximized the space real-estate.
    - Flexibility - amazing array of different tones - setup much like my Blackstar - US/British/AC selector gives the right tweak to low and high-end tones. The clean channel can easily be set up to give just a little crunch without much effort, and the distortion on this thing can ranch from a warm blues crunch to a screaming face-melting metal sound. This is to name just a couple of the options - there are more tweaks to dial in the sound as needed.
    - This is setup much like a big rig with effects loops, and support for multiple cabs.

    The only con I have - which I find really annoying - is no footswitch. Really annoying since I love this amp. In order to go from the clean channel to a solo needing some crunch, I always have to be close to the head and stop one hand long enough to flick the switch. Since I primarily bought this as a practice amp I wasn't thinking it was going to be a big deal - but between the light weight and amazing tones I want to take this thing everywhere and it inconvenient. Getting a GT-100 to help out with the 4 cable-method.....

        Had this amp for about 3 months now. Tweaking is what it's about. Many fantastic tones can be had and takes well to pedals up front plus has effects an effects loop.

            Comments about Egnater Tweaker Series Head and Tweaker 1x12 Half Stack:

            My Tweaker 15 half stack is my primary gigging amp. I don't like a ton of stage volume, and in any case this little rig is a lot louder than you'd expect from 15 watts. Using an angled-back stand for the cab, I can point it at my ear level and hear myself just fine w/o having to have guitar in the monitors. Hang an e906 in front of the speaker, and good to go.

            This rig's best feature is the broad range of useful tones. The various toggles and knobs actually DO something. Since I switch up between twp very different guitars (ES-335 to G&L SC2) in our current live sets, making a couple-three quick changes gets each guitar into its sweet spot and at the right volume easily. Foot-switchability would be even better, but it's quick enough.

            The gain control is particularly well done. There's some real range, not the "all or nothing" thing that a lot of amps' gain controls give. The Vintage/Modern voicing toggle offers distinct differences, as well.

            This rig takes pedals nicely. I use both individual stompboxes (recording) and an M13 (live...don't hate!), and both sound good.

            The one thing I dinged it a little on was that the lower ranges on the Master Volume aren't as useful as I hoped they would be when using the Gain. There's a big, non-linear jump in volume in the first quarter of the dial's movement. Not only does this jump bypass the volume I really wanted (for apartment playing), but the tone on the low side of that volume jump isn't nearly as good as the tone AFTER the jump. Not a problem on stage or even recording, but for those who have to be concerned about volume at times, it's not an ideal practice amp.

            Bottom line: a lot of great tones at a price that makes touring with it less nerve-wracking.

            I use this as one of my practice amps and I use the Tweaker 88 with the 2x12 cab as my gig rig. I love the tweaker series amps. This little guy will get super loud and sound great at any volume. The clean is lacking in comparison to a Blues Junior, but you can still get a good tone with it. The only downfall to this amp is that it is only one channel, so you have to stop playing to switch it over.

              I have owned a Tweaker half stack for about a year. I run it with a Mesa Boogie F-50. THis Tweaker just ROCKS! Affordable! Super musical. It very nicelyimitates and old Marshall or vintage Fender amps faithfully. Vox and Matchless tones as well. Well made. Really freakin' LOUD too! Nice thick tones, I play Les Pauls (3), a Strat, a Jackson, a Charvel and 2 Ibanez's through it and it works great with all of them.

              Cant believe a reviewer isn't getting enough gain out of his or is muddy. Play with the switches! The tight switch especially. I use single coils and the gain is over the top! Must have a rig problem. This thing has a ton of tones! I am amazed at the versatility.

              usa/ac/brit - no its not a twin, bassman, ac30 or plexi, but this small lunchbox opens up a variety of quality tones that will scratch the itch of most any tone you are looking for. For studio or stage- gotta love not hauling big ego rig amps. This may sound strange but I am a fan of the line6POD for the same reason, with a simple tool you can sample various tones that sounded good. Different tone brings out different playing styles and makes playing more fun..The tweaker accomplishes this same thing in analog format by providing various tone stacks and dynamic "tweaks"- If you cannot get a handful of great tones for most any style of playing from this amp with any reasonable guitar....hang it up, or get your ears checked.

              Comments about Egnater Tweaker Series Head and Tweaker 1x12 Half Stack:

              I have an SG standard and was playing through a line6 spider IV 15watt while I saved the cash for a decent amp. It was torture. I had to have a tube amp, so many choices on the market, where to begin. I played em all, probably spent 12months saving and playing different amps,the TWEAKER was my favorite by far. Remember the price point on this amp, I'm sure I played better amps but they were double, triple the price. The tweaker has so many tones, my SG sound gorgeous through it, a world of difference, this amp brings out the tone of my SG brilliantly. I originally bought the combo, returned it and went with the head and cab. In my opinion the head and cab sounded better, maybe the look of it made it sound better, who doesn't want a half stack next to the bed when they wake up each morning. I have yet to crank the volume past 12 o'clock, I'm enjoying tweaking the options this thing has. Brilliant cleans, creamy crunch and dirty drive, not metal, but thats what pedals are for. I originally wanted the rebel 20 for its wattage selector for low volume breakup, the TWEAKER sounds great at low volume, it comes alive when it warms up and plenty of volume on tap, like I said, at 12 o'clock it screams. So so so very happy with my rig, I play more because of it. You will love it. No issues, no hum, no defects, 100% quality amp.

              Amendment To My Previous Review

              Comments about Egnater Tweaker Series Head and Tweaker 1x12 Half Stack:

              After more tweaking (no pun intended), I'm beginning to realize that the amp isn't the problem. My pickups are the problem. They're Gibson '57 Classics. They aren't giving me the midrange I need. I'm going to swap them out for a new set, possibly the Duncan Hot Rodded Humbucker set, or maybe a DiMarzio Norton in the Bridge and Breed in the neck. I'm still not sure. But I'll post another review of the amp after the pickup swap if possible.
