Product Description

The Egnater Tweaker Head is a compact and amazingly versatile all-tube amp that offers a unique and sophisticated tone with seemingly endless tonal variations via the on-board "Tweaker" selector switches. Powered by a pair of 6V6 power tubes, the Tweaker will set the standard for gigging micro amps. The gain, EQ and master sections each have a Tweaker switch providing a wide-range of tones from the smooth and satisfying to fully over-saturated lead tones.

Are You a Tweaker?

Hidden inside the Tweaker is a vast array of tones not usually found in amps this compact. Each of the five toggle switches on the front change the character of the amp. 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 lets you select from pristine American to classic Brit and even the elusive VX AC sound. The Classic/Modern voicing switch allows you to select either soft and smooth or hard and edgy power tube tone. It's all in there to satisfy the ultimate "Tweaker".

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (16 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Watch out Fender!"
Sound: The dynamics of this amp are great, very touch sensitive, but you have to get the tubes a little hot to let the tiger out. I am using a Weber Mini Mass Attenuator to do this and it really beefs up the tone when you can't really crank it up. This amp makes my 1 x12 cab sound great as well as the 2 x12 and the 4 tens in the Blues Deville.The amp is not noisy at all and works well in my small studio, where you can hear a pin drop.I play a Fender Players Deluxe Strat with 12's tuned down a half step, Fender Blacktop Strat with EMG David Gilmour pickup set with 10's, Standard Strat with Dimarzio Area 58,61 and 67 pickups with 11's and a Standard Telecaster with a Fender Vintage Hot Alinco in the neck and a standard tele in the bridge with 10's. All of these guitars sound really good through this amp and work with it really well. Feature: Being able to swap out with different types of tubes is a cool feature. Also the effects loop on a 15 watt amp is a big plus for me. Switchable speaker outs is good as well. I wish it had a nice headphone out with speaker simulation. Ease of Use: Pretty straight forward in this department and tones of tweakability to get the tone you want. Quality: Well made and heavier than I expected. I have not looked inside yet, but I have seen some pic's on the net. Seems pretty well designed. Value: Well worth the money I spent, and I would probably pay a little more for it, but I will take it at the going price now. Manufacturer Support: I ain't had to do this yet... The Wow Factor: I have been playing for over thirty years and I am a tone freak. If it does not sound good I do not keep it around very long. This amp is getting the blues and Gilmour sound I want coming out of speakers and into my headphones when I am recording. Overall: I had a Fender Blues Junior for about two years. Swapped the speaker out for a Eminence Cannabis Rex and was getting good tones out of it, but it did not have an effects loop. I like having my modulation effects in the loop and my drive pedals straight into the input.So I started my search for an amp that would fit the bill and the Egnater Tweaker 15 Head was the perfect solution. I already had a 1 x12 extension with a C-Rex and a 2 x 12 extension with two 16ohm Eminence Texas Heats, so I had the cab part solved. After much tooth gnashing and review reading, watching and listening, I decided to get the Egnater Tweaker 15.Handles all of my mod effects in the loop great. I have an EH Small Clone, EH Deluxe Electric Mistress, EH Deluxe Memory Man with Hazaria, EH Cathedral, MXR 10 Band EQ and a Boss RC3 Loop pedal. No hiss or hums in the chain, just pure modulated tones.I am over driving it with an EH Soul Preacher, Hardwire CM2 and a Fulltone Fulldrive 2 MOSFET and the tones I am getting with it and the 2 x12 with the Texas Heats is phenomenal. I even did a double take one day I was doing a jam with some friends in the garage. It was like holy crap is all that good sound coming out of that rig!I have since traded the Blues Jr. for a 1993 Blues Deville, but I don't think I am going to get tired of the Egnater any time soon. In fact I am using the the Blues Deville as a 4 x 10 speaker cab for the Egnater most of the time.
Style of Music: Al over the place except for rap. Mostly blues rock and jazz.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "What I hoped for."
Sound: My set-up: Tele w/Seymour Duncan's (APTR-1/lil '59), Tweaker, 535Q Wah, Nova Repeater, custom cab Weber 10F150 @16 Ohms. Overall good sound. (I end up with a fairly comprable sound to what I found with the Tweaker Cab.) I was very impressed that it is really as versatile as it claims. In the future might replace the 6L6GC's with 6V6's. It is not quite as aggressive as I'd like & has a little more bass response than I tend to need. (Nothing a little "tweaking" doesn't fix.) Feature: The fact that every switch noticeably did what it said it would won kudos from me. The only I thought might be nice would be a foot-switch for the clean/hot, but in the end, I am almost glad it doesn't--I've been on a gear purge as of late. I love that an amp this small has an FX loop. Ease of Use: Every feature makes sense & I have been able to dial in most any sound I can hope for. On the flip side, I am waiting for when the tweaking becomes second nature. My tweaks in changing my tones are becoming more efficient, but I need to spend more time practicing my amp. Quality: Seems well-built. I bought a blemished model am not to nervous about construction. Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: I am a practical kind of guy & not too concerned with looks. Seems to be Egnater's perspective as well. Overall: I am very glad to be a Tweaker!
Style of Music: mainly alternative rock
