OVERVIEW

Embrace your inner tweaker.

The 15 W Egnater Tweaker amp head is ultracompact and amazingly versatile. The all-tube Egnater amp head offers unique and sophisticated tone with seemingly endless variations via the onboard Tweaker selector switches. Powered by a pair of 6V6 power tubes, the Tweaker is a perfect micro amp for gigging.

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 lead tones.

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 five toggle switches on the front changes the amp 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 dials up either soft and smooth or hard and edgy power-tube tone. The Egnater 15 W amp head makes sure it's all in there to satisfy the ultimate Tweaker.

I wanted to scale back on the amount of money I had invested in my rig, with 3 kids in college, and the fact that I'm essentially a weekend warrior, I wanted to get the best rig for the money I could find, keep a few boutiqu-ey pedals to play with, and play my Epiphone Elitist SG with Antiquities and my G&L ASAT Semi-hollow with Duncan Alnico Pro II pickups, and maintain a level of satisfaction similar to when I owned a expensive handmade boutique amp, a couple of nicer guitars, and some pedals that cost more than they should have.
The Tweaker 15 has delivered. I'm very satisfied.
I wanted a single channel head, I wanted a more or less straight signal path, I wanted an effects loop that works, and I wanted tone. I got all of these and I have options from different switches and controls that all effect tone and drive the way I hear it in my head. Each of these toggle switches does what it says and they are interactive, not heavily, but playing with gain and tone knobs, along with different switch positions, yields lots of different tonal pallettes. Bigtime fun for such an inexpensive head.

I run the master wide open, maybe at 9 instead of 10, and dial up the gain according to the volume level. I continually find myself using the vintage, normal, british, and loose positions on the toggles. I run a Jetter Gold Standard, a Fulltone OCD, an Eden Analog Austin pedal, in front, and a TC Electronic Flashback, a Boss RV-5, and a TC Electronic Corona chorus in the loop.

I am having a blast!
I haven't had it that long, but it seems to be very well built. If there are shortcuts, they took the ones that are less noticeable. I love the size and weight of the head, i was tired of carrying around heavy amplifiers. I see no reason why this head won't operate at a high usage level for a long time. That being said, it's made in China and it's no silverface Fender or Boogie Mark I. At the end of the day, I have no real concerns about the quality of this product.
Tremendous value. If they can keep this item priced in this range, they can rule the mini-head market. I really like Orange Tiny Terror amps for pure tone and the price is a bit higher. For the versatility and the slightly lower price, I prefer the Tweaker.

This is a great little amp and I really tried to hang with it as I love the variations of tone you can muster up. This thing has very nice clean fat warm tone to smooth lead and beyond into killer chunk. The is simply a very nice amp. A minor knock however is the amp does not respond very well to volume control on your guitar to clean up as you will find the tone drops offs too much and becomes flat. A second channel would be a welcomed addition.Now for the bad... As I said I really tried to hang with this amp but in the end became convinced best to stay away from Asian manufactured amps. The first unit died after one week, the second arrived dead on arrival, and third had pops and crackles during the first five minutes of operation. It seams the guy at GC when I first started my tone quest for a nice bedroom practice amp advising me to stay away from Egnater amps was right - I should have listened...

Ridiculous!

By RECO Fan

from Austin, TX

See all my reviews

Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I know that I'm not adding anything new to the Tweaker discussion, but this amp is ridiculous. I'm running it through a 2x12 Avatar cab loaded with Greenbacks, set mostly after an agressive Vox-flavored voicing. I've owned and played severdal Fender, Marshall, and Vox amps costing 4x as much as the tweaker, and it certainly holds its own. Does it absolutely nail the exact nuances of each? Nope. Is it pretty damn close? Yup.

Honestly, I initially hesitated to purchase this amp, even after playing and loving it. A $400 head? Must be a toy - something you can't seriously take to a show and play in legit settings. But...

...it just sounds too good. Plug it into a quality cab with some rockin' speakers, dime the master volume and put the gain at 10 o'clock, do something reasonable with the tone stack, and it just kills.

Can't argue with tone, man. It rocks.

Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

Loving my Egnater Tweaker 15 - a tiny, perfectly formed and sexy all tube 15W amp head with all the tones you could ever want. Playing it through a 2x12 speaker cab with Celestion Blue + G12H30 speakers. Definitely loud enough for a small gig even playing clean. Activating the "Hot" switch adds some really juicy Tweed/Vox/Marshall style distortion. Tube-buffered effects loop works fine too. Great product!

    Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    First I want to say the things people compalin about they shouldnt.. this is a budget amp. No second channel .. but it has a switch that goes from clean to high-gain.. sorta 2 channels right there just not independently controlled. If you want 2 cannels on a budget then look for a jet-city or bugera. The one thing that annoys me is that it does have idle noise.. even unplugged.. you hear it if the gain is up past 9 0'clock and/or you volume is near pegged. I peg my low watt amps and control the volume with the gain control.. with this amp however i must dial it in for the least amount of hum.. brit setting causes the most hum the ac and american setting are about equal. You have to like the effects loop on a budget amp I rate this about a 4 of 5 cuz of the noise... If you use pedals you may find better amps .. blackstar or blackheart..but if its just you and a head then this is what you definitely wan to be playing thru...

    Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I have tried many of the newer low-watt tube amps. The Tweaker is far and away the best sounding (though probably not the most reliable). I love the features and the tone is remarkable.
    This is a brilliant design. The Tweaker has toggle switches to change the character of the tone stack from modern to vintage and from US to Brit or AC (as in Vox AC15) and to boost the amount of gain in the pre-amp.

    One of the coolest features is that you can replace the stock power tubes (6V6) with either 6L6 or EL-34. As of tonight I have tried all the tube cominations. They all sound good but my favorite is the EL-34. With the toggles set to Brit and Vintage, with the tubes upgraded to EL-34 and with the amp driving two 12" Celestions this thing sounds remarkably close to a Marshall. I was able to compare it side by side with a 1987 Marshall Jubilee (yup, the real McCoy) and it sounds better than an amp in this price range has a right to.
    On the down side - I have 2 of these and they both developed crackling noises within the first year. There was no warranty that covered the problem so I was out 2 amps with no detailed explanation from the Guitar Center amp service (out sourced).
    For the price this amp kicks some serious butt! I'd buy more of them if I needed them and I always recommend it to my students. Be prepared to invest in lots of tubes.

    Pleasent Surprise

    By crazy Al

    Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I bought one of these heads and the matching cab a few months ago when starting up a small band and I needed a good sounding amp that could hang with a drum set and play some smaller outdoor shows.I really think the amp sounds great, actually I have owned a lot of gear including many boutique amps and this Egnater is my favorite amp of all time. It's really that good, Maybe I got a "good" one but this amp rocks.I quickly added the second cabinet as I realized how great it would sound. It is more than plenty loud to hang with stage drums with two cabs, and I reccomend the Eganter tweaker 112X celestion G12h30 loaded cabs meant for this amp, they sound simply fabulous and are a great deal for the tone/projection they put out.This amp is great for practice as well as small shows unmiked. The second cab is kind of needed to hold off the drums but I always have headroom left and it's loud at that point.We also have a Marshall JCM2000 and a 4x12 marshall cab, this egnater surprisingly hangs with it unless the marshall is really cranked hard, and we kind of think the egnater sounds better hard as that is to believe.I build my own amps as well and this is not built bad for the price. I practice on it at least once a week and gig it regularly, no problems yet, It's been a solid little amp thus far.I run a Boss ME-70 into the front end, but only in manual mode as a multi stompbox unit which works excellent and has most of the boss stompbox effects in it- I do not use the COSM preamp models for anything, they suck and destroy your tone. I do not like using effects loops even though this amp has a good one for those inclined to use it. I think it makes a better tone this way and keeps the volume rocking. I have a lot of single stompboxes even expensive ones but this setup sounds great and is easy for me to haul around.I really was surprised by this amp, I think you will be too. I play G&L and Larrivee electrics into it and get fantastic tones that rival the point to point amps I build. Very nice to have found this. It is one smokin little amp, As Egnater calls it a "micro" gigging amp. Highly reccomended.

    My New Favorite

    By Eggy Convert

    from Benicia, CA

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I have owned over 70 amps in the past and have kept my 14 favorites. These are amps that I will likely keep until my last musical breath unless i run out of room or creative passion. Fenders include a Twin reverb, Super Reverb and a homemade Champ. Also a Ceriatone HRM, Vibro champ and homemade and modified super deluxe... a Vox AC15, Matchless Ligthtning, Marshall Silver Jubillee, Mesa Electradyne and more. My 15th amp is one I now spend the most time with at home. This Tweaker is the best value yet. I have coupled this with every cabinet and speaker I have and the tones abvailable are orgasmic. Typically, I find that the best multichannel amps have one channel that defines them and the other(s) may be good, but not quite as exciting. The Tweaker has stellar clean and gain channels with lots of sonic options with each. My relationshiup with amps is a visceral one. If I don't feel an amp's character after minimal tweaking, I usually lose interest. If I find that I need to tweak too much with that amp to get what I want after buying it, it usually goes on sale pretty quickly. This amp will be a keeper. without going into specifics, it does many things well and at a respecable volume on both channels. Lots of tones in here and seems to be very well built. I don't do many reviews and rarely gush. Consider this rare review a gusher. Just buy it! I don't know anybody I have played with that would not find this amp an outstanding value. Don't be chicken, get the Egg.

    Amazing

    By IAN WAIT

    from Illinois

    Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I honestly cannot say that I have played an amp I liked more besides maybe a Deluxe Reverb, but that also costs three times as much! If this amp had a footswitch, reverb and a line out of some kind I would give it a perfect 10 all the way across although those things would have easily made this amp much more expensive. I was worried that I would regret the purchase on a fiancial investment level, but not anymore! I've owned Mesas, Fenders, and all sorts of amps but this one takes the cake in tone town! I plan on trying it out with my 4x12 to test volume in a full band situation as well as with the crappy cab I made and I will try and settle the debate if the amp is loud enough for a gig. All in all, just buy the thing, you'll feel better when you plug it in!
    For the money, this amp provides amazing versatility! The switches actually make noticable, to me at least, change in the tone. The only reason I couldn't put a 10 in features is because it does not have reverb or a line out/speaker emulation and no foot switch to control the parameters of the amp: British / USA or the hot / clean setting.
    Top notch. Everything from the 1/4" jacks to the knobs to the tolex are all above par. The tone is monstrous. I was worried getting a 15w amp that the bottom end or the volume would be sacrificed but this was not the case, at least with the 4ohm speaker I've tested it with.
    Once again, for the money you will not be disappointed. When I say that, I don't mean it can be improved upon and it's a crappy amp. On the contrary, this amp provides amazing value in the price / tone ratio! Even at just 15w, cleans have plenty of headroom though the crunch is what really shines. I combined this head with a speaker salvaged from a broken crate combo from the eighties that hasn't been used in at least 5+ years and the results were amazing. Go find a broken amp with a good speaker, snag the speaker and make a box. You have a little half stack that can keep up with a drummer!

    Unbelievable!

    By Austin Torres

    from The Mother Country

    Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I've owned this amp for almost a month and have yet to be disappointed. There really are no limitations I can find with this head. I'm running it through the Egnater Tourmaster 2x12 cab and the sound is incredible - very "full".
    Before purchasing, I spent two months trying out whatever head and cab combo I could. After about an hour of "tweaking" with the Eganter, my mind was made up. The amp really encompasses all the qualities of a Vox, Fender, or Marshall and I am able to mimic most of my influence's sound - as well as fine tune my own tone.
    The amp is certainly loud enough to over-power a heavy handed drummer and sounds its best when doing so. I have yet to get tired of this thing.
    I find it hard to believe that this amp can disappoint.
    Great build quality. The knobs/switches feel very solid and of good construction.

    Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I've tried the JCA 20H, Blackstar HT-5 & 20, Tiny Terror, Vox and Mesa Trans Atlantic...Out of all of these amps the Tweaker was hands down the winner! With all of it's "tweak" switches and different voicing options, just about every tone's available to you! It takes pedals extremely well, great clean head room and has a very useable eq. I drive the front end with two MXR ZW-Overdrives, MXR Chorus and Boss DD-3 Delay, and it sounds amazing! This is by far the best low wattage amp on the market today and smokes the competition! All the above named amps just don't compare to the Tweaker! Go Check one out, you're going to love it!

    Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    I bought this amp as a practice amp, but, when, I heard how it sounded, I might end up using it for small gigs as well. I'm using it through a Fender Hot-rod Series 1X12 cab. It will also drive a Marshall 4X12 cab as well very nicely. Too bad it doesn't have a 2nd foot-switchable channel or onboard reverb. I have no other complaints as the price and tones this amp puts out more than makes up for it.

    Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    Let me start by saying the reason I gave this a 5 is because I can't give it a higher number. This is amp is literally perfect. You can run from marshall to vox to fender to ANYWHERE inbetween. I've run my rig through tons of other high quality amps (again, marshall, fender, you name it) and this can do it all. Egnater is obviously doing something right. If you are on the fence about an amp, DEFINITELY get this one and you won't be disappointed.

      Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

      This is a great amp! Tons of tone, lots of tweak options. I mainly use this in my home studio and I can get great sounds at a reasonable volume. My last amp was a Mesa Rect-o-verb 50 and while I really really liked it, it was too loud for my situation. Plus it was a combo and quite heavy - the Tweaker is small, compact and light! I run the Tweaker 15 through either an Avatar 2x12 closed back or a Marshall 2x12 open back cab.

      I haven't played out with it yet, but it seems like it can handle most small to medium gigs. My Les Paul sounds awesome through it and my new ASAT sounds really good too, though I don't think I've found my sound on that just yet. Since it's only a single channel, I'll probably be looking at a overdrive and boost pedal soon for playing out.

      I have not had any issues with mine and I've had it for nearly a year now.

        Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        I own a telecatser deluxe reissue, which sounds really muddy on my other amp (Vox), yet with the tweaker I can really clear it up. It feels like strats are born to be paired with one of these little amps. A second channel would be welcome, but hey, I'd buy another one and just use an AB switch to play between the clean and gain.

        I am also in the process of getting various different valves. Since the amp is cathode biased, the valves don't need to be biased, so it's really easy to mix and match valves to experiment with the sound.

        Really super amp, cant go wrong with it I think.

          Comments about Egnater Tweaker 15 W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

          I received this amp about a week ago and have already had quite a few hours to work with it. The Tweaker is your standard lunchbox-sized amp, but with Bruce Egnater's fingerprints all over it. Versatility of this single-channel amp comes in multiple ways -- power stage voicing between Vintage and Modern that gives you more bottom end clarity versus warmth; 3-channel EQ stack changes between Fender, Vox, and Marshall; Bright-Normal and Tight-Deep voicing options, and a Clean-Hot switch that almost makes this feel like a 2-channel amp. Make no mistake on the Clean setting; if you crank the gain you still get tube-saturated overdrive, and the Hot setting at relatively low gain picks up where the high-gain Clean leaves off. So you have plenty of overdrive/distortion options in that knob-switch combination. With Master volume, you can get good tones at bedroom levels or fill up small- to medium-sized venues with 15W of tube output.

          My personal preference is to set this amp right at the point of breakup and allow pedals or my volume knob to push it over the edge. Doing it in this configuration requires smart use of the tube-driven effects loop, if you want to do things like solo boost and use delay that is uniformly overdriven. But if you know how an effects loop works, you already knew that. I recommend taking advantage of it, because while the cleans on this amp sound great and it takes pedals incredibly well, you do not want to miss out on the warm overdriven tones this amp is capable of.

          This amp truly is a "tweaker" -- that is, you can really hone in your own personal sound and tone. I've yet to find a tone that doesn't sound good, though I have personal preference for some sounds over others. I'm positive you'll be able to find yours! Buy with confidence.

            I haven't gigged with the Tweaker yet, but it seems to have plenty of power for small to medium venues. I played it through a Marshall 1x12 and it was plenty loud. Nice overdrive sound with the gain knob, don't need a pedal. Overall a great assortment of features in an attractive package. If you think you might like it - you will.

            Kudos to Musicians Friend customer service regarding a small transaction snafu that was actually my fault, they promptly handled it very much to my satisfaction - thank you!

            It's hard to add to what everyone else has said about this little wonder, but perhaps some advice is in order....When trying out a Tweaker, take it to another room where you can let it really roar! That is when you can really appreciate the tone and versatility of it! It's not a good low volume, bedroom amp. It NEEDS to push and stretch out a bit to really show off. If possible, hook it to a well broke-in 4X12 to really get a feel for it. It may only be 15 watts, but this little SOB will take your head off with the highs, and rearrange your innards with the bass! Now I know why Egnater put an 80 watt speaker in the cabinet, it NEEDS that much power handling. My second amp from Egnater (also have a Rebel 20), I'm thinking a Renegade may be next on my wish list!

            This is my 3rd "lunch box" tube head.Went through a Blackheart BH5H and a JCA20H before purchasing the Egnater Tweaker.By far the smallist and most versatile of the 3.Great $$$. All of my guitars sound good through it so far. Be it Humbuckers, Single coils, P-90's, or Mini HB's They all get grest tone that plus a bunch of flexiblilty using the many varied switches to Tweak your sound.Get one before they raise the $$$$.

            Purchased the head after trying it at GC. Took it home and played it thru my Mesa 2 12 with vintage 30's. The sound is on par with my Marshall Vintage Modern combo which I love. But, this thing goes beyond the Marshall in features. From warm Fender and Mesa sounds to amazing Marshall cleans and overdriven sounds. I almost got the Vox Night train but it was lacking a few things I needed (an effects loop for one). By "tweaking" the available switches and knobs you can achieve your sound. I may purchase a second one for a/b switching.
