Egnator Renegade HeadThis is a very nice and affordable amp. It provides a great spectrum of tone-shaping capabilities. I can get lush cleans and crisp/fat drive sounds. Love the foot-pedal options for channel (clean or drive), effects (separate loop--set to either or both channels), reverb (in or out--set to either or both channels), and main 2 (can be set as a nice boost switch for solos). The drive tone is very nice but not my absolute favorite (sometimes I will put a customized drive in front of amp—it accepts all effects pedals very well). Great blend option for EL34 and 6L6 tubes, which is not well distinguishable at lower volumes; however, when pushed, both are quite distinct (separate or blended). The density and presence knobs add nicely to tone shaping; however, it would be preferable to have separate adjustments for each channel (set it and forget it when toggling between the both channels). Finally, while it is quite manageable as is, a lower wattage version would be helpful for smaller venues. The lower wattage amps made by Egnater are largely EL84/6V6 combinations and I prefer the EL34 tones. I have used this amp successfully for multiple praise and worship centers. The head version allows for needed stage use/adjustment while supporting an off-stage speaker cabinet that is isolated to minimize stage volume.
