OVERVIEW

A combo amp that offers all the great tones that a pro could ask for.

The Egnater Renegade 212 Tube Guitar Combo Amp is a 2-channel powerhouse at 65W. Two 12" speakers give you the tools to forge your sound and the power to move some serious air whatever the size of your venue. The Renegade amp's Channel 1 produces lush, 3-dimensional clean tones with just a bit of grunt when you dig in. Channel 2 starts with a sweet, bluesy overdrive, but pushing the gain opens the floodgates, unleashing enough thick, harmonically rich distortion to satisfy the most demanding player. Both channels offer an independent 3-band EQ, Egnater's BRIGHT and TIGHT switches and a Wattage Selector switch that lets you choose between an intimate 10W or a wall-shaking 65W. Master Presence and Density knobs let you sculpt the high and low-end response.

At the heart of this Egnater tone machine, you'll find 5 12AX7 preamp tubes and a power section fueled by 2 6L6s and 2 EL34 valves. The Renegade Head features the ground-breaking TUBE MIX function on each channel, allowing you to blend the deep Californian character of the 6L6s with the aggressive British midrange punch of the EL34 tubes. There are independent reverb controls for each channel, dual footswitchable master volumes and a speaker-emulated line out. The included 4-button footswitch controls much more than just channel switching. Use the footswitch to engage the on-board reverb, effects loop and secondary master volume with channel-assigning switches for all 3. Run them on both channels or just the 1 you choose.

The Egnater Renegade 212 Combo Amp is loaded with 12" Celestion Vintage-30 and a 12" Egnater Elite-80 Speaker by Celestion. This heavy-duty cabinet features rugged birch construction and has side handles and detachable casters. Egnater ncludes a heavy-duty cover with the Renegade 212 Tube Guitar Amp.

There are so many features on this, and they're all true tonal adjustments, not el cheapo digital effects thrown into an amp. if there's any sound you can't get out of this, it's a really balls-out 1980s-to-modern heavy metal distortion. Guys who want a single scooped tone should probably look elsewhere, but they'd probably be turned off by the tweedy look anyway. But otherwise, it's just an incredibly versatile amp with a wide range of tonal possibilities.
You can't get much better, although I suppose the 4-channel Egnaters offer just a little more. This thing has two channels like many amps, but what gets me is that each one has their own controls: Gain, EQ, Volume, and Reverb, plus a knob that mixes between 6L6 and EL34 power tubes, plus two additional switches that adjust the tone, plus a wattage cutter that simulates an 18watt amp so you can get faster breakup at lower volumes. The footswitch lets you switch channels, turn on and off the effects loop and the reverb, and hit a button for additional gain on either channel (Great for solos).
I have had this for 3 years now and it's survived a lot of gigs and wheeling across rough pavement with just a couple nicks in the tolex. It comes with a soft cover that isn't super sturdy and got lots of small rips in it very quickly, but it does help protect the amp. Overall build quality is great, although the fan is a little loud.
Hard to beat. It's not a cheap amp by any stretch, but it has tone quality of a more expensive amp (very Fender-ish on the 6L6 tubes with the clean channel) and features that make it feel like I have multiple amps in one body.

I bought this amp 2 months ago. It sounds great, so good that I thought I finally found what I've been looking for. The tube mix knob is more effective that what the review in Guitar Player indicated. I prefer the EL34. Now for the bad part: two months after purchasing, it starts cutting in and out, and making crazy static sounds on both channels with either tube setting. I tried changing the tubes, and it still does it.I'm taking into the shop for repairs tomorrow. Lets hope!

Comments about Egnater Renegade 212 65W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I've gone through a lot of amps, especially as of late, but this one is a keeper. One of those amps that make you want to play for hours! The clean channel is nothing less than gorgeous. Deep, lush, beautiful, takes pedals extremely well. The gain channel can be pushed well past the glorious days of hair metal, though may not be your preference if Cannibal Corpse is soft rock to you. My preference is to keep it around 2 o'clock and lay waste to the weak. The reverb is outstanding. Definitely not to be overlooked, and I'm a real reverb snob. Amp noise/hiss is extremely low. Yes there's a fan but you barely notice it, in fact, I only notice it when I initially turn the amp on. Once I start playing (bedroom volumes) I hear nothing but an amazing amp. Can be used at low volumes, but this baby begs to be cranked! I'm amazed at the features, versatility, and thinking that went into the design of this amp. Bruce Egnater hit a grand slam with this baby! Now the cons: This amp is heavy, so if you're planning on moving it around a lot, you're much better off getting the head/cab. The inputs/outputs in the back are in a weird position so they're hard to get to and hard to see what you're doing. Conclusion: This is my first Egnater, and one of the best amps I've ever owned. If it were stolen, I'd declare a jihad on that poor soul.

Excellent Amp!!

By David Brasefield

Comments about Egnater Renegade 212 65W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I Bought the Egnater Renegade 2 x 12 combo in April 2011 and have been gigging with it ever since. This amp sounds fantastic and is feature packed. The clean channel is crystal clean and works great with dirty pedals also. You can also get some bluesy dirt from the clean channel depending on your settings. The high gain channel is the best I've heard straight into an amp ranging from crunch to searing high gain lead options. I've used Mesa Boogie for years and find the Egnater to be far more versatile. It also has a great sounding reverb. The 6L6/EL-34 tube blend is interesting and provides British crunch sounds to more American but it seems you lose some volume when the tube blend knob is pinned one way or the other. The channel switching, effects loop, reverb and solo boost are all accesible via the included footswitch. Upon arrival the solo boost switch worked intermittently only to correct itself within a day. Maybe a loose solder joint? Not sure but it's worked flawlessly for months ever since. The only other negative is the 2 x 12 is a little heavy but it does come with a tophandle and two side handles. Aside from that, I love this amp! You won't be dissappointed!

Best Amp In It's Price Range

By Ryan Downs

from Undisclosed

Comments about Egnater Renegade 212 65W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I was in need of a new amp desperately. I was playing off of a 1970s Peavey Mace that was about to fall to pieces. I looked for months to find the perfect amp. I went to about a million different music stores and played and researched A LOT of amps. I played Marshalls, Fenders, Peaveys, Voxes. You name it i tried it. This amp had it all. It was very versatile and great for anyone who loves pedals. The tubes sound great and the speaker combination is amazing. It louds, sounds great, and is sold for a great price. Look into this amp if you're looking for that something special. Did I mention how beautiful this amp is?

Glorious Tones

By Billy Smith

from Bowie, MD

Comments about Egnater Renegade 212 65W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

It's hard for me to give a 10 rating but this puppy came very close. The amp is very versatile and has great clean tones and warm overdrive tones. Pedals are very transparent through the effects loop. The tube mix is wonderful as you can dial in just about any tone imaginable.
Has all the bells and whistles. Reverb, effects loop, tube mix, eq, boost and great footswitch.
Built like a tank and wieghs as much as a tank. That's why it has great tones.
Bought it from Dent n' Scratch

Great Amp

By Mark J-9-0Qu

from Bridgewater, MA

Comments about Egnater Renegade 212 65W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I love the sound and features of this amp. I had to take it to the shop for a repair (see eariler post) but it has worked great ever since. I had a Peavey Triple XXX that had great distortion but didn't clean up well. This amp has plenty of gain unless you're doing hardcore metal. I also have a Fender Deluxe VM which is ok but this amp has such a bigger sound. I play a LP Standard Traditional and a American Fender HSS and both sound awesome. Very happy with the amp.

Comments about Egnater Renegade 212 65W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

First of all - I had been soul searching for an amplifier for quite some time before I found this amp. I visited Guitarcenter several times, as well as many other music stores. I must have played over 100 amps before I knew that the "Renegade" was the amp for me. To be honest, I used Guitarcenter's "30-day money back Guarantee" to my advantage. I took home the "Rebel-20, the "VOX NightTrain" as well as a "Fender Blues Deluxe". All of these amps were great in their own way. Out of those three amps, I believe the "Fender Blues Deluxe" was the closest in competition with the "Renegade"... but the "Renegade" was just unbelievable. The "Renegade" is the closest amplifier I've ever heard that could honestly be defined as an almost "Jack of all Trades" amplifier. I say "almost" because "NO" amp can do everything. I've owned "Fender", "Marshall" as well as a dozen other brand names in the past and I'm telling you that this amp is the greatest amp I've ever had the pleasure of playing through. I give this amp so much credibility because of its "versatility" & able-expression. This is a "TRUE" all tube amp. The natural compression you get when dialing down the EQ is an example of how versatile this amp is. With most amps, it doesn't make much sense to turn the EQ's band bellow mid mark, (middle EQ being the exception). With this amp, you can find usable tones no matter which way you dial. And I'm talking about all of the famous sought after & beloved tones of some of the greatest amps in history - (Marshall, Fender, VOX, etc.). Every knob & switch is important when playing through this amp. There is nothing about this amps design that I would prefer to disincorporate. All you need is a little love for tone searching and you should find that this amp will provide you almost infinite possibilities in reminisce of the amps of yesterday. Oh! And I almost forgot. The price is pretty nice to!!!

End your search for tone!

Comments about Egnater Renegade 212 65W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

Okay, I waited to post a review until I got out of the "honeymoon" stage. This amp is INCREDIBLE. It has so many tone tweaking features to where anyone can find "their tone" you could have 100 of people playing through this amp and everyone of them tweaking it can create a different sound it is that versatile! I just played it in a full band setting and the way it sat in the mix was indescribable! I hooked up 2 SM57s to both of the speakers, had the FOH people pan them and I was blown away at the tone. I used the footswitch to turn between clean and overdrive and you couldn't even tell I "switched it" the noise level stayed the same and it ended up being a seamless transition!The only "con" about this amp is it's weight. It is very heavy, but it's not like you're going to find a lighter one this incredible!

    Comments about Egnater Renegade 212 65W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

    This is by far the best and most versatile amplifier I have owned or played. You can achieve almost any tone you want with this amp. The tube blend is a great feature. And with each channel having its own individual controls, you can get everything from a crisp Fender clean to a dirty classic Marshall distortion to a high gain metalesque tone.

    The footswitch is also a fantastic feature of this amp. You can control what channel uses which feature. For example, you can set the reverb to only be on your clean channel, only on the distortion channel, or on both. The same goes for your effects loop and the second main, which I use like a volume boost for solos.

    Overall, a great amp with nearly limitless tonal possibilities.
