OVERVIEW

4 channels with selectable voicing for maximum versatility.

Each of the Egnater Tourmaster guitar amp'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 your 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 4212 tube amp, 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.

The Tourmaster 4212 amplifier is loaded with custom-voiced Egnater Elite-80 speakers from Celestion, and includes heavy duty detachable casters and metal slide handles.

Speaking as Blues Guitarist; you just won't find a better built or better sounding amp than the Tourmaster.
I've had this amp for 3 years now and had a problem with blown fuses after 1st year.
I was told the factory installed fuses were of incorrect value and the authorized service center corrected the problem free of charge. Since then absolutely the best amp I've ever owned in 30+ years of playing. I stacked the combo on top of an EgnaterTourmaster 412 slant cabinet and the tone just blows me away.
I'm a blues guitarist and I usually keep the amp on the vintage 2 channel with gain turned almost all the way up.
I would put this amp up against any vintage or reproduction amp anytime when it comes to playing the Blues. No need to turn it up full blast to get great tube tone. I usually have it on 10 watt setting which is very loud.
I also have the Tourmaster 4100 head and cabinet which has the same great tone.
Just had to do an updated review to let musicians know what a great amp this really is.
Rock Solid Construction and Amazing Tone!

Maybe I had bad luck with my Egnater 4212 combo. I've owned it for less than two years,
and has been in the shop twice for a burnt power rectifier. The fuse would blow, and then it would not turn on. I would replace the fuse and it would blow again. I was told by repairman that internal parts are all made in China, and not built to last. I guess that's par for the course with most products these days anyway. Anyway, on my second time in the shop, I noticed someone else had dropped off theirs for repair too! Coincidence?
Also, this amp is a back-breaker, weighing in at 95 pounds. If you gig regularly, it gets old lugging this beast around.
Anyway, I'm selling mine as soon as it gets out of the shop. Let someone with more time lug this thing into the repair shop.
Also I live in Boston, and surprised at the lack of Authorized Service Techs that cover Egnater warranties. I had to drive a long way for service.
To Egnater's credit, the customer service is decent(they actually answer the phone when you call), and they backup the lifetime warranty.
And to support the other reviews here, this is a great sounding amp.
The tone shaping options on each channgel is great. Having four channels to tweak is certainly valuable.
I could have just had bad luck with my amp, but something tells me this particular amp is not going to last as long as your old Fender Twin.
Four different channels to tweak. Two cleans/ two overdrives, each with a Modern/Classic option. Four foot-switchable sounds, 8 configurable overall. It's hard NOT to find a great tone with this amp.
Beware, not all parts made in USA.
This is an excellent price for what you get. Four-channel tube amp: a great idea for a great price.

Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

The Tourmaster is a gem of an amplifier. It is heavy in weight, however, probably because of it all-tube electronics. I marvel at the tone...it is hypnotizing once you find your sound. In no other amp have I found so detailed tone controls which allows you to play effectively with different guitars. It has an excellent and warm jazz sound as well as heavy rock or biting blues. I am a happy customer though I have had to send the unit back to the factory as it was on the floor of the store for one year. I can't wait to get it back home.

6 month owners update

By Tripower03-FNoFl

from ohio

See all my reviews

Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I bought this amp to replace my undependable piece-o-krap Marshall DSL401. I gbought it for band practice mainly. After 6 months ownership I finally have it properly broken in. The sound has gotten smoother and more pleasant to my ears. I can make it sustain like crazy on the overdrive channels at rediculously low volume levels! The thing will absolutely "talk" to me. This amp has been rock solid in reliability. Believe it or not I allways run it at only 10 watts output (switches on back pannel). That may sound rather weak but 10 watts is loud enough to overpower my drummer at times. Oh yeah. When I take it to gigs I mic-it up and let the PA do the work. the way, at that lower power setting the tone is absolutely unaffected. I don't know how Mr.Egnater does that but he certainly knows his stuff. Happy Tourmaster owner here.

Egnater Tourmaster 4212 - AMAZING

By Jeffrey Tayama

from Columbus, OH

See all my reviews

Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

Excellent. I am planning to get another smaller Egnateror 2-channel head and cab for gigs and leaving my combo at home for practice since it weighs a ton.
Amazing amp. So versatile and can fit any genre of music and is LOUD!
Excellent. Great tone! The lows sound great the highs are crisp, from the cleanest channel to the dirtiest. Wattage grid on the back helps immensely. You can't really tell the difference until you turn the volume past approximate the 10 o'clock mark. The record out feature is great too. Only a little bit of the tone is lost, but it is miniscule and when recording, you add anything that's lacking. Footpedal is solid enough and the lights are bright enough to see in bright light. FX works great and I love the controls for the FX loops in the back of the amp. Of course, the tube mix knobs as well as the Classic and Modern selectors is what really makes this amp shine.

The bad thing about this amp is that it weighs what seems to be as much as a house! Of course, when you have 12 tubes, what do you expect. I should have thought a little long about it and gotten the head and a 2x12 cab. Luckily it comes with wheels, which aren't the best. I'd advise replacing them with more rubbery wheels to make it smoother.

Handles are made well and heavy duty. The inputs and outputs seem to be pretty durable too.
I'd say, for the price, it's a great value as you're getting a few amps in one.

CANT GO WRONG

By Braves801

from Augusta,GA

Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

Great amp for anything but death metal. It is crazy loud if you set it on half power/half output. Forget about it set to full power/output. You really have to enjoy playing with your sound to get this combo. You have so many chioces for each channel it's hard to dial in a sound and keep it set. It has a high and low input which is cool. The only draw back is it is heavy and the foot pedal is long. I do like the loop and reverb on the pedal. The reverb sounds great too. The modern/vintage switch does make a difference in the tone. The modern can get muddy. But like i said you can play with your tone for days on this thing. It has pictures in the owners book of settings to get certain tones. They work well to help dial you in or atleast get you close. I've been playin for 22 years and have owned alot of amps. This is the most versatile of all. It has the British and California sound all in one combo. You wont regret it.

Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

Ive played this amp before at a store and like it a lot. I found a great deal on MF for a restock and received a B-Stock amp and out of the box, it looked like an amp that was filthy and poorly cleaned, and it was clearly evident that the back covers were removed several times for servicing (screw heads chewed up). Only the clean channel worked out of 4 and upon opening up and checking the tubes revealed that leaning on the chasis or wiggling the tubes made channel 2, 3 and 4 work, but faded quickly. Upon further inspection, I noticed the tubes were all different with w mix of Egnater (Grove tubes) brand labled, actual Groove Tubes and Ruby tubes, so this thing was clearly repaired and probably several times. Im hoping that the replacement will fair well, MF was awesome in helping me get a new replacement ordered and sent out ASAP, I am pleased with their Customer Service.

Amazing!!!

By LesPaul527

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

Well i had been trying to find a good amp to suit my needs, and this thing definitely did it. I play mainly hard rock and blues and this amp covered those and everything in between. The cleans can be basically compared to a Fender, and the distortion can definitely keep up with a Mesa. The Tourmaster also contains a lot of cool features like the 10-100 watt power grid. This makes the amp very versatile for recording, gigs, etc. All in all, this is an incredible amp for a ridiculously good price.

A Real Keeper

By Tripower03-FNoFl

from ohio

See all my reviews

Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I bought the Egnater Tourmaster 4212 amp sort of on an educated hunch. I've played through quality Marshall tube amps my whole life (30-plus years) but I felt like a change was in order for me. It was a great move! The 4 independant channels are a tone tweakers dream. I now can have all the sounds I've had in my head all these years in one little combo amp. If I were to make a list of all the different elements I wanted in my dream amp this one has them all and more. Bruce Egnater really outdid himself. He even included a tube fan to keep the air moving in order to help prevent slow-cooking the circuit board.Cool.I had to add the fan to all my previous tube amps at my own expense. He added the stuff other builders will not include because of profit concerns. This thing is premium quality throughout, no cost cutting anywhere. The sound quality rivals most of the high dollar super rich guy amps out there, and does it for a comaprably reasonable price. Yeah it may be built on a production line but your ears can't tell the difference. Especially at this price. It took me a while to find my ideal tone adjustments but the time invested paid off big time. Ihe Egnater may or may not replace my 100 watt Marshall full stack at a big outdoor show but it is a keeper for sure. Try one, youll like it.

Not worth the dough, better amps for the price

By Bronchick

from Denver, CO

See all my reviews

Comments about Egnater Tourmaster Series 4212 All-Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

Overall, I will dissent from the others and say this amp is so-so in sound. I was expecting much better when I ordered it, but ended up returning it after a few hours of playing around.
Lots of features, especially the ability to dial down each channel's power.
Solid, well built
Not that great of a sound. The first and second channel and very close. The third channel is a crunch that can be obtained through most good pedals. The lead channel screams, that's the best one. But overall, the sound is no better than a Fender DeVille with a few choice pedals. I am comparing it to the Blackstar HT-60 which I have and the Bogner Shiva. Shiva is quite a bit more money but blows this amp away. Blackstar is about even with it, but costs a lot less.
