« Egnater Tweaker head & 1x12 cab »

Publié le 05/15/11 à 18:49
The Tweaker is Egnater's second lunchbox head and they have come a long way since the Rebel. The Tweaker is a single channel 15 watt all tube head powered by a duet of 6V6 power tubes and three 12AX7 preamp tubes. That alone is impressive enough for the price but when you factor in the fact that you get a Vintage/Modern switch, a three-position voicing switch and further power amp controls, and usual master, gain, treble, middle and bass controls, it is a lot of amp for the money. The cabinet is a semi-open back with an 8ohm Celestion G12H30 speaker rated at 30 watts.

UTILIZATION

Great sounds are easily obtainable with this amp. Using the three-position voice switch and mild EQ tweaks, you can immediately go from blackface Fender type (USA) clean sounds to edge of break-up Vox AC30 type (AC) sounds to balls to the wall Marshall Plexi type (Brit) tones and everything in between. It really is that versatile. Factor in the tight and bright switches which offer further customisation and the vintage/modern switch which alters the overall response of the power amp and a Hot/Clean switch which offers 9dB of gain boost taking you into high gain territory and you can indeed be Tweaking. The controls do exactly as they say and nothing they don't which makes dialling in tones a breeze.

Oh, and did I mention you can drop in any octal power tubes you like? 6L6s for a more Fendery vibe? Sure! EL34s for a more Marshall voice? Absolutely! Definitely one for Tweakers!


SOUNDS

The sounds themselves are rich and complex sounding and befitting of an amp of a much higher price tag. A personal favourite tone of mine is in AC mode with the amp set to clean and the gain maxed. This setting with a Tele is Brad Paisley heaven. Another is a Les Paul into Brit mode with the Hot switch selected. Gain anywhere beyond 12 o'clock and you're looking at a roaring Marshall tone in a 15w lunchbox head. Switch in EL34s and you really capture that vibe. The beauty is that whilst it doesn't get all the way there on any of the sounds in terms of absolute authenticity, the most important features are there and they make for a very satisfying overall experience of playing and hearing the amp.

OVERALL OPINION

For the money, I don't believe this amp can be matched. The package is well built and offers a lot of versatility. The speaker is perfectly matched to the head in terms of power handing and tonal output and when you really start to delve into the amp you can see that it would be at home in a lot of musical situations.

A very fine amplifier!
