Egnater

Embrace your inner tweaker with this compact, and versatile 15-watt all-tube combo.

The 15W Egnater Tweaker 112 ultra-compact all-tube combo amp offers versatility with unique and sophisticated tone. The Egnater 112 combo serves up seemingly endless tonal variations via its onboard Tweaker selector switches. Powered by a pair of 6V6 power tubes, the Egnater Tweaker is a perfect tube amp for gigging.

The Egnater combo'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 lead tones.

Hidden inside the Egnater Tweaker tube amp is a vast array of tones not usually found in such a compact combo amp. Each of the 5 front-mounted toggle switches changes the amp'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 Egnater guitar amp's EQ switch selects tones from pristine American to classic Brit and even the illusive VX AC sound. Use the Classic/Modern voicing switch to choose either soft and smooth or hard and edgy power-tube tone. Even the most radical tone tweaker is sure to find the sounds they seek in the Egnater Tweaker 112 combo amp.

      No, seriously. Just buy it. If you think it's not loud enough, you can also try the 40 watt version... which I gotta figure could be used to demolish houses.
      I have been playing guitar for 35 years. I have owned every amp imaginable (including a 1x12 Music Man tube amp back in the day... never should have let that go). This Tweaker is simply ridiculous. If you're up against a drummer with a Neil Peart complex, you might have to go with one of the higher wattage Egnaters. But if you're playing small to mid-size clubs and recording, you cannot do better than this amp. With the gain at 10:00 and the master at 1:00 (even with the "hot' switch on) I can get icy clean tones so loud that I'm pissing off my neighbors... and not just the guy downstairs, I'm talking neighbors ACROSS THE STREET. I'm going to buy the 1x12 extension cab just so I can do some major damage when needed (like outdoor gigs).

      But you want to talk about TONE? Look up "tone shooting out of its butt" in the dictionary and you'll see a picture of this amp. All three tone stacks are dead-on accurate. I'm not a Marshall guy, so I can't really speak to the accuracy of the Brit tone stack... sounds pretty realistic to me. The VX AC takes the most tweaking to sound accurate, but you can get there. But the USA mode (we're talking big "F" here) is impossible to screw up. It's blackface heaven, perfectly responsive to guitar volume and picking attack. The whole rig take pedals beautifully (my Eden Analog Nashville and MI Blue Boy Deluxe sound GORGEOUS through this thing). Patch a Boss '63 Fender Reverb pedal into the effects loop (only truly brilliant pedal ever produced by Boss), and you have yourself the best "F" amp that "F" never made. Plus a bluesbreaker amp, plus a British invasion amp.

      I cannot think of a better way to spend the money. The Tweaker shames amps at two to three times this price point. Just buy it, man. Or woman.

      I had this amp for about a year and a half. The amp sounded great then one day it bit the dust. I switched the tubes/fuses and still nothing. I emailed Egnater's customer support and I STILL haven't got anything back from them. I finally took it to a local amp repair shop and it turns out that the transformer completely died. The best part is that the amp repair shop called Egnater to get a transformer and apparently, they don't give out spare parts. So I'm basically stuck with a busted amp. Absolute worst customer service ever.

            Comments about Egnater Tweaker 112 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

            Wow, what an upgrade! I've been playing for over ten years, and I finally bit the bullet and decided to go tube. Previously, I played through a Fender Mustang II. It has almost endless tones to play with, but lacks that warm natural sound. When I plugged in the Egnater, I was blown away. Within seconds I could go from articulate, punchy drive to a glassy clean with endless bottom end. The quality of the speaker and the cabinet itself makes for excellent dynamic range. I had to try really hard to get a muddy tone out of it.

            Since I haven't owned any other tube amps, I can't speak to how well it emulates the three companies. I can say that the Brit setting has a nice thick sound that seems to push the tubes harder, the AC setting is clear and precise with excellent highs regardless of gain setting, and on US everything is tastefully punchy with a bit more compression. All three are very useable and very shapeable. Add in the array of tone switches, and I'm going to be "tweaking" my sound for the next few months.

            The features and build quality are unbeatable. The serial effects loop works as advertised, and I can add any extension cabinet I'll ever need. I play a humbucking PRS SE Santana, and running my MI Blues Driver overdrive/fuzz through the front is pure joy. It's also dead quiet if you're not playing. I can't even tell it's on unless I have the master volume practically dimed. No hiss! Physically, it's very solid. If I dropped it on the power switch (God forbid) it would probably just put a hole in the ground and keep working like new.

            Over all, I couldn't be happier with this purchase. If you want ONE amp to get all the tones in your head, this is it!

            This is one of the most versatile and Nicest amps I have played in my 40 years .It's my Backup amp but gets used way tpo much to be considered that. Please don't let people who right negatives about this that play cheap guitars and tell you they can't get their sound. A cheap guitar will NEVER get you anything but cheap sound. This is a great amp and all it needs to be perfect is Reverb.Even without the Revereb the sound is AMAZING and I can't recomend it Highly enough. I played ptoffesionally for 15 years and WISH they made these when I was a pro. Best Amp you can buy for the money bar none.

              I purchased one of these about 3 days ago. I was hoping to get a nice even overdrive sound like you would with a Vox ac15 or ac30. I can not get a nice even tone out of this amp. When I select the AC setting, it is closer to what I want, but not quite there. I have tried all the options, the BRIT setting is so screechy like a fender hot rod, the USA setting is a softer version of the brit setting. Just not my cup of tea. The cleans are nice however

              Comments about Egnater Tweaker 112 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

              This amp is very nice, looks great & feels solid. The sounds are very much rock sounding but would work on other styles also. I've also got a Fender Deluxe Reverb limited edition and a hundred pedals but I was also wanting an amp that could do overdrive/distortion from within. Originally I was going to sell the Fender but realized that the Tweaker's clean sound really isn't as magic as Fender's so I will be keeping both amps. The Tweaker does overdrive & distortion great and it plays well with some pedals. The Electro Harmonix MetalMuff mixes very nicely with the built-in OD and creates a whole new sound from either alone. Very meaty rock sounds. Another great pedal is T-Rex Tonebug Distortion! Most Fuzz & Rat type pedals sound better though when the amp is on cleaner in my opinion. Even without any pedal this amp has lots of different sounds to explore. Its fun to turn on the heat and wail away and the different variations. IF you really aren't into Fender cleans then this could be your only amp. It rocks and really is a great price. Plug into one and check it out. Its tube & has none of that fake modeling so many other brands are into. I dig it.

              PS. I waited a month after receiving it to make sure to give a more rounded opinion of it and I hope this helps you.

              Almost forgot - I won't be using the FX loop as it didn't work with some pedals and sounds funny on others. I just put the FX in front of the amp and all is good.

              Great amp.

              Comments about Egnater Tweaker 112 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

              Overall, I really enjoy this amp. If it was stolen I would want to replace it, but with a used unit.
              Very versatile amp. Many different tones available through the different switches and knobs. Some are more subtle, and others make a bigger difference. Combined, they really can produce a huge number of sounds. Not sure if can do metal because I don't play that kind of music.

              Compared to my Fender Twin, the Egnater isn't identical to the Fender, but it's really close. The Egnater can "sparkle," but not as fully as the Fender. Probably it's down more to speakers than the amp itself. I like the clean channels on the Egnater much more than those on the Fender Blues Jr. III. The Egnater sounds more "open." I don't have much experience with Vox or Marshall, but those sounds on the Egnater are pretty close too; close enough to please me in any case.

              I wish it could switch channels, but I guess that's the (more expensive) Tweaker 40. I wish it had reverb, but that wasn't a major concern. I wish it had an effects loop volume knob, but, again, not a huge deal.
              Seems quite sturdy. Wish it had metal corner covers.
              Harder to say here. I think the price is a bit steep, though I'm not sure what other amp I'd buy at that price. I got mine off MF for much less because it was condition 3. The damage that was done to make this condition 3 was really not a big deal to me at all, so I was really happy with the price I paid. But I don't think I would pay full price for this one.

              Comments about Egnater Tweaker 112 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

              Overall a fantastic amp. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
              Great features. Endless possibilities. All-in-one amp. I was trying to decide between a VOX and a Fender. I didn't want to buy two amps so I decided to try the Egnater 112. I have not been disappointed. I can get the VOX and the Fender sound with one amp, and a whole lot more.

              The only minor issue I have is that some of the controls as at the back of the amp and not too easy to access. No big deal however.
              Initial quality is great.
              Great value if you consider the options you have with this amp in terms of wide range of tones that are available.

              No, seriously. Just buy it. If you think it's not loud enough, you can also try the 40 watt version... which I gotta figure could be used to demolish houses.

              All amp tones

              Comments about Egnater Tweaker 112 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

              I cannot see ever selling this amp. I am still discovering different tones with it, and I have had it for almost a year at this point. I can run my guitar straight into this amp, and have no issues. I can also plug my pedalboard into it, and again, the amp tone just shines through.

              It plays very well with both humbucker & single coil guitars (I am amazed at how my Strat knock-off sounds with the switch on the US setting - very Fender-like).

              This amp does extremely well with lower volume settings, but can get pretty loud when cranked. I mostly play low volume (the family does not like going deaf too often...)

              The only thing that I can see this amp lacking is a reverb unit. However, I purchased a really good reverb (T-Rex Tonebug reverb), and it sounds great.

              This amp is totally worth the money, and would recommend it against any amp in this price range.
              It is a single channel tube amp with gain, bass, mid, treble, and master volume. It has switches for Deep versus Tight (set one for humbucker guitars & the other for single coil), Clean versus Hot (pretty obvious), Brit, AC, and US (this switch covers the Marshall, Vox, and Fender sounds respectively with uncanny accuracy), and finally Modern versus Vintage (you get a slightly different tube level response with this switch). About the only thing lacking here is reverb. You also have an effects loop in the back.
              This amp is extremely well built. I use the Tweaker for home use, but I would have not issues going to a gig with it. The switches & jacks feel pretty reliable.
              You can get pretty convincing Marshall, Fender, & Vox tones out of it (I play a Carvin SE90 humbucker guitar, and with the switch in the AC position, I have never heard this guitar sound so crystal clean). If you want this versatility, you would have to buy three different amps. I'd say that the value is pretty much out of the park.

              Tweaker does what it says

              Comments about Egnater Tweaker 112 15W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

              The gain control, hot switch and British USA alldo what they say they do in a affordable amp. Cabinet buzz needs to be worked out. Let the Tweakers Tweak.
              The USA British switch does change the tone as advertized. I good usable cleans and OD.
              The amp I played had cabinet buz something terrible. This happens with combos and may even go away over time, my PRRI did lose the buzz.
              Nice 15 watt amp for the price. Has good low end and could use help on the highs. I played a 335 dot thru it. A Tele or a Treble Booster would help it out but I am being picky.
