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

Bedroom bliss

By neale murray

from Lockbourne Ohio

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.

Amazing Little Amp

By Nathan

from Pennsylvania

I purchased this a little under a month ago as my first tube amp, and I have to say, this thing is incredible. It nearly matches the clean tone of a fender, and gets a nice warm grit when switched over to british mode. Without even leaving the clean setting you can get a really nice grit great for lower gain blues. When you switch it over to the hot setting you get a really great distorted tone that give you what you need, but doesn't overdo it. So the hot setting is great for Led Zeppelin, ACDC and Guns N' Roses, but if you're looking to shred or play anything really heavy you'll want to purchase some kind of distortion or overdrive pedal to put in front of it. Overall this product is outstanding and great for anyone playing anything from church music to hard rock. (The little blue power indicator light was a nice touch too)

it's HUGE

By Daniel

from California

Had my tweaker head/cab for a couple of weeks and it's safe to say that it can take anything you dish out. Not really a bad tone to be found in this amp. As a stock amp it does blues very well. Lots of clarity and responsive to the player. Has a great clean sound, the EQ switches do what they say they do. Get a great usa clean to british classic rock. I found the hot stage to be a little lacking in gain for harder type of genres. So I replaced V1 with a GT-ECC83-S and it does a great classic rock and even hard rock/metal, it has better lows now. It can scream ! They come stock with sovtek 12ax7-wa which is fairly flat response/lower gain. The low end crunch is to die for and chunky palm muting sounds heavy and not muddy/flabby. The tweaker cab is a perfect compliment. fyi I use a les paul studio plus. build like a tank, switches/knobs, everything feels great and responsive. A must buy !

Great Little Amp

By Tim B

from Syracuse, NY

When I saw the Tweaker was only a 15 watt amp I was greatly concerned. "Would it be loud enough to power over drums?" The answer is a resounding "Yes". The little beast is plenty loud enough. The tone is exceptional and is now the basis for all my tone. I liked this tiny little amp so much, I switched guitars and pedals and started from scratch. It's amazing how one piece of gear can change your style so much. The Tweaker does a lot, none of it poorly. I can set the knobs and switches in all kinds of different ways and be happy with it. Mostly though, the EQ knobs stay just past noon, the gain (or "hot") is on, and the overdrive sits at about 2 o'clock. This works really well for my punk n' roll antics. At lower volumes the amp can sound a tad muddy, especially with the gain on. And the plastic Egnater logo on the cab pulled off really easily when it snagged on my pocket, so be careful. This little amp does a lot and Egnater has a fan for life.

An Amp that Satisfies even the most Ravenous Tweaker

By Big Mac

from Blues Ville, Florida

The Egnater Tweaker is a 15 Watt all tube half stack (also available as a combo) that handles any music style with the flick of a few switches. This thing will take you from classic California crunch, to legendary British overdrive, all the way to the elusive Vox sound. Buy this amp!

Buy It!

By SC guitar player

from Greenville SC

I had never heard of Egnater until about a year ago. I was in GC this past Saturday and happened to plug into this Tweaker micro stack. Immediately I noticed some really good tones, and quiet. The next day I traded in my 3 month old Blues Jr. NOS for the Tweaker amp head and matching cabinet. For only slightly more $, you get so much more. The ability to truly tweak your sound across many musical genre's - rock, jazz, blues (not sure about Metal cause I don't play it). This is a QUIET amp, takes pedals and multi-effects very well (into the guitar input or effect loop). Yes it has an effects loop. The sound is creamy all around and with great tube crunch and spongy distortion when you want it. This really is very boutique amp-like and professional on every level. Love the Celestion speaker. Love the sound. I have a feeling this is going to be a HUGE success for Egnater.

Awesome!

By G. M. "Howlin' Mad Mac" Spangler

from Lancaster, PA

Just purchased a Tweaker head & 112 extension cabinet last night at my local Guitar Center. It's got a better BF tone than a Fender with lots of spank, the Brit voicing is like a classic Bluesbreaker but the V_X AC is over the top. More than enough power for small clubs or the rehearsal hall yet not overbearing for practice at home... all in a very lightweight micro stack. Nice, shimmering highs, cut the mid for a great "scooped" sound or dial some in for some "thickness" with a big, powerful, round bottom end. Just add a great Overdrive/Boost pedal for the tiny 3-channel amp of your dreams. Buy one... it's a keeper!

The only amp you need

By Desiblues

from Chicago, Illinois

I own several amps and had been waiting for the Tweaker to come out to see if it was good enough to become my go-to amp. Well, within 3 weeks of my getting it, I sold off my other amps. The Tweaker has everything I ever wanted from an amp: it's loud enough for small gigs but can also be played at very comfortable volume levels. The Fender/Vox/Marshall switching really does that it's supposed to. Nailing a good Vox sound is difficult and the Tweaker comes through with flying colors. What's there not to like: extreme versatility of tone, great tone at all volumes, touch sensitivity, easy to move around with a great price to boot.
