Egnater is one of those companies that has quickly climbed into one of the top positions of the amplifier building world. Their amps are highly sought after primarily due to there modules and small wattage amps. People have gone crazy over these modules in recent years and for good reason, they are very versatile and fantastic sounding. They have also done a spectacular job at designing small combo or head amp that are low wattage and excellently priced.

This a great voiced amp for rock and pop music. This amp has a mix of 6v6 an El84 power 20 watt head similar to a simul-class of a Mesa Boogie amp when they mix El34's with 6L6 power tubes. This allows the amp to bloom a little bit more in the over feel. This amp is the basically the same voiced amp as the rebel 30 but just one channel and 10 less watts. This amp is also a recording engineer's delight. You have an optional recording simulation speaker output for going to direct into a recording session or a live PA system for gigging.

SOUNDS

This is a great little amp. You get one Chanel that can go from a cool clean tone to heavy modded British style voiced tone. You get a thick saturation gain and the lend control knob that allows you to blend the tubes is just a very cool feature. The amp sound spectacular all the way from 20 watts of power down to the minimal 1 watt of power. This allows you to play at almost none existent volumes if noise and volume is an issue in your home or office.

OVERALL OPINION

At new you can pick these amps up for right around $550. That is a heck of a deal for what this amp can do and how it sounds. This amp is a rocker and only 20 watts of power you would be surprised at how large this amp can sound. I wold recommend this amp to anyone who need a good small gigging amp or a nice practice amp that can go down to 1 watt of power.
