The Egnater Tweaker appeared in the first edition of our recommended list for Low Watt Tube Amps in December 2017 and due to its consistently high ratings, it has remained there ever since.
It also appeared on our list for Guitar Amps Under $500 from June 2021 until it had to be removed due to a price increase.
The Egnater Tweaker is an all tube amplifier head with expanded tone coloration options, thanks to its many voicing switches.
The first one lets you switch between modern and vintage voicing. Modern voicing has a more compressed tone, for improved clarity and enhanced articulation. Vintage is warmer and more open sounding, reflective of old tube amps.
There's also a switch that lets you choose between American (Fender), AC (Vox) and British (Marshall) voicings, which gives us amp modeler like functionality, but without the need for DSP. This means that you get a lot more bang for your buck compared to what conventional tube amps offer.
Other tone shaping controls include 3-band EQ, Hot/Clean, Bright/Normal and Tight/Deep, all of which can be used to get the sound that you prefer.
This 15W amp head comes with two 6V6 output tubes and three 12AX7 preamp tubes.
If you're looking for an all tube amp head that provides some sonic flexibility without going the digital route, then this is for you.
