OVERVIEW

Like four separate amps in one head.

Each of the Tourmaster 4100 amp head'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 you 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 4100 amp head, 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.

Firstly, I must say that this amp is one of the best sounding tone machines I've heard. Correctly dialed in, it can produce anything from California to England both in terms of clean and down right nasty. The tone is nothing short of beautiful. I purchased this amp from GC on clearance. Great price, but had some problems. I sent the amp to Egnater for repair (great warranty). They fixed most of the problems, but missed a problem with a low level static that sometimes became ferocious, completely taking over the tone and volume. I called them and they payed return shipping. They replaced all of the tubes (12 in total) as a effort to fix the problem. They believe (maybe too much) that tubes fix most all problems with static. They reported that they never heard the problem, but re-tubed it to satisfy my complaint. They sent it back with problem intact. They never followed my instructions in order to find and diagnose the problem, thus they never found it. This is my only complaint with Egnater. They don't really listen well to the customer. They forced me to pay to return the amp and show them the problem. Fortunately, I live within driving distance to their facility. I showed them the problem in 2 minutes. They tried to argue that it was tubes, but after a complete tube replacement that was highly unlikely. In the end, I walked out with a new amp. Customer satisfied, but not without stress and having to force them to listen. The new amp sounds great and no problems so far. If you buy and need repair in warranty, be prepared to fight if need be.

To start with, I have been playing for roughly 30 years, so I'm not a beginner. I bought this amp a couple of years ago and it's been plauged with problems since day 1. It's a shame too because the amp sounds great on any channel. It has gotten to the point that when I go out to play a gig, I don't know whether this amp is going to work or not. NOW...the footswitch has stopped working, and I can't get another. Egnater customer support might as well be based on another planet a trillion light years from earth. It's non existant. Can't get calls answered, returned, or email help. I won't be getting another Egnater. I just bought a Bugera 333xl Infinum, and it sounds just as good as the Tourmaster for a third of the cost.

Poor Quality and Service

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4100 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

My Egnater Tourmaster 4100 Amp has been plagued with problems. It has never been dependable. It Constantly blew internal and external fuses. The sound comes and goes and even plays by itself without a cord plugged in it. Egnater was helpful at first and then switched on us. It was a bad purchase and I will never buy Egnater brand equipment again. Maybe you will have better luck.

    Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4100 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I went to GC to check out a combo Tourmaster, it ended up being some beat up used thing, but it sounded good. It was really heavy. So I ordered the head only from MF to run through my Marshall 2x12 cab. When it arrived it was in a thin unmarked box, I opened it and could tell the footswitch had been repacked in the box, so at this point I was suspicious. Plugged it in and stared with channel 1 and made adjustments and it started sounding great, did this with each channel and sounding really good until a got to channel four, DEAD. MF had the nerve to send me a used defective head that had been returned. I contacted Egnater and they told me the only time they send something out in a plain box is when it's a refurbish, I couldn't believe MF would do this, I called MF and asked to speak to a supervisor and she asked "What do you want me to do?" I don't know if I will order again from MF, if you do, make sure to tell them if you pay full price you want it new in the box!

    Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4100 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I have owned mine for over a year, I had a problem early on with overdrive one channel that caused a significant loss of volume and drive. there was also a low level hum coming from the power tranny. I had to pay to ship the amp to a service tech that Egnater recommended. I got the amp back and was told it need to have a bad tranny replaced, the hum was gone, but the OD 1 channel still had the same problem. Egnater stepped up and paid the shipping cost to have the amp reserviced at there shop and they found a potentiometer that needed to be replaced. Since then I have had no problems and I truly enjoy the many options this amp offers for adjusting tone and running the amp at different power levels. I never tire of experimenting with the endless potential it has.

    Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4100 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    Let me first state that I have owned a b-52 AT100, a bogner, a 6505+ and not to mention a few crate and other solid state combo amps. Six plus years of playing guitar and dabbling in bass, I know good solid tone when I hear it. It seems like you must choose between punchy, warm, smooth, or saturated as the personality and voicing of your amp. A 6505 is too punchy, a bogner is too warm, and crate is always too saturated and fake for my liking. This Egnater though, if tone is the up most important thing to you then you will have little to complain about. 50% warm tone 40% in your face punch and 10% vintage voicing (its unmistakable and quite pleasing). I don't know much about vintage sounds and classic rock tone but I could definitely improvise my way into any 80s/70s metal band. I managed to get the exact sound that TOOL uses. However, the on board distortion CAN get mean and modern but it will give you ugly hum and buzz. almost as if it doesn't want to sound angry. Thats where preamp and pedal distortion comes into play. Combining my effects with the versatility of such an amp can keep a guy infatuated with the endless possibilities of tone. Perfect sparking cleans, to guttural death metal roar, what can be achieved with this is nothing short of jaw dropping! No, its not a 2000$ ENGL and no its not a priceless boutique combo amp. Its a working musicians tool that can create and amplify that perfect tone you have in your head. Quality through and through, armed with GT power tubes, a power selection grid. oh, and it looks nice too.

    I Finally Sound Like ME

    Ask me a question

    Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4100 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    This amp REALLY deserves the highest marks in ALL categories.Going down the list:Features: Find me an amp with better features, and features that are actually useful. Not gonna happen.Quality: Built like a brick s***-house, very attractive looking and VERY well built, almost no noise; zero tube rattle, no issues whatsoever, crisp and defined at ANY volume.Value: To get tube tone this good any other way you need to shell out a LOT more money for the likes of Orange, Marshall, Mesa, or something custom made. EVERY musician I've played this thing with has congratulated me on finding the PERFECT tone. When I tell them how little I paid they get angry.Overall: What's not to love? The ONLY thing I'm not wild about (hence the 4.5) is that this thing weighs about as much as a marble tombstone. It is HEAVY and as a result pretty hard to transport unless you got a buddy helping you. I've been using a luggage-dolly and that's good enough to get it out the door; but it REALLY ought to have side handles even on the head, it's a bit awkward to maneuver.I've had mine for about 3 weeks, and I have tried numerous times and FAILED to find a sound I didn't like out of this amp. The cleans are just buttery smooth and perfect. The overdrives can get you just about any sound you could possibly want; excluding maybe death-metal for tone-def teenagers; and hey, with the right pedal I'm sure you could get all that too. Aside from the really useful and practical features, the beautiful tone, and the attractive looks, I think the best thing the Egnater Tourmaster 4100 Head has going for it is that it's truly a player's amp. It's extremely versatile. You can dial in some satisfying tones RIGHT out of the box; OR you can spend weeks tweaking every knob and flicking every switch to find some truly original sounds. It's also the MOST responsive amp I've ever played in terms of how it reacts to the subtleties of your pick-attack and changes in the guitar's volume and tone knobs. It's also one of the few amps I've ever encountered that produces EQUALLY satisfying jangly sparkling Strat tones AND growling, chugging, snarling Les Paul tones. It's a beautiful playground for Single Coil OR Humbucker-equipped guitars.In short, there's a tone in here for every style and guitar sound you could want, from BB King to Angus Young to Kurt Cobain to Jimi Hendrix and all points in between. If there's a tone you can't find in this amp; it's probably YOUR fault.Anyway I couldn't be more satisfied. I'm turning 30 in a few weeks and I wanted a reward for myself so I picked this up. My other amps are getting REALLY lonely since this one showed up. At 10 watts it's the sweetest sounding living-room friendly practice amp I've ever had. At 50 watts it sounds nice and full in the band practice room and cuts through the mix with authority. At 100 watts you could probably bring down airplanes. I can't think of a playing situation where this amp wouldn't get the job done from jamming with your buddies at home to melting faces off at a club or theater.

    Don't Think About It, Just Buy It!!

    from Boise, ID

    Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4100 100W All-Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    Let me start off by saying that I have had this amplifier for two years and I have had the time to put it through its paces. After over a 72 5 hour shows, dozens of rehearsals, and two full length records later it needs to visit the amp tech for servicing. To me that is quality. I have owned several amps over the years (Mesa Boogie Strategy rack series, Bugera 333XL, Mesa Dual Rectifier Tremoverb, Soldano SLO, Fender, etc. ) and the Egnater never ceases to amaze me. The first thing that I need to stress about this amp is it has the best clean tone on the market today. It is harmonically rich with a smooth character that is like a fine whiskey. I stacked it up to a vintage 1970's Fender Super Six which, with it's six ten inch speakers and fantastic all tube circuit provides an iconic and delicious tone which is to die for. The Tourmaster spanked it hands down. No joke. The Egnater's clean sounds better than a coveted, vintage Fender amp. On clean vintage 2 I can nail great vintage crunch tones, rockabilly, classic rock, and that elusive Marshall Plexi tone with ease. Overdrive One puts you into the modified JCM 800 arena and can dish out singing overtones with string definition and clarity. OD channel 2 is a little bit more of an enigma... it is more like an SLO with more balls... great lead tone. The contour feature on each channel is great although I rarely use them. A warning to the metal heads out there... if you are looking for a high gain beast to make your guitar sound like a duffel bag of cats going through a wood chipper, this amp isn't for you. The gain structure is very conservative. I play high energy original hard rock, along the lines of Guns N Roses/Nickelback/etc and it fits the bill perfectly.

        Features: [1:Front Panel] Master Control includes Master Volume (Loudness), Spring Reverb, Density & Presence are work great but the only thing that's not enough is the Reverb, it' good not great.Nevermind the sound still awesome !!! [2:Back Panel] Both Series & Parallel FX Loop are work great, they don't mess your awesome tone if you read "TM4100 User Manual".Series FX Loop needs the "Unity Gain" only that found in TM4100 User Manual/ Parallel FX Loop does not mess your tone. Power Grid is the best of Amps world, it' very very useful to maintain your tone still great even if you play guitar at low volume (Loudness) or high volume..."Tip = The Lower Volume You Play, The Low Wattage You Use", for maintaining Bass & Treble still great. Tube Bias no need to adjust if no problem in sound. Direct Record Out is for your recording or to Mixer when you play live!!!. Speaker Out 4, 8 & 16 Ohm w/t Selectable Switch is so goodQuality: Everthing works great, the sound awesome in every channel.No needs "Booster" or "Overdrive" pedal to increase sustain, because the "Gain Knob" in TM4100 is enough to obtain your sustain.TM4100 is the place that Modern & Classic were met...This is "Overall Amplifier".Value: High-End(Quality) Amp But Low Price)...Don't Miss !!!Overall: It's has no "Boost Switch", but don't worry, be happy because it's has more gain to use....I LOVE IT, I LIKE IT & I NEED IT...
