More Tweaking and More Power

As the biggest and baddest of the Tweaker series, the Egnater Tweaker-88 head offers 88 watts from two hand-selected KT-88 power tubes. All of the features from previous Tweaker models are present, plus a new master boost on each channel. You can set the boost for either a clean volume boost or a boost with gain for soaring solos. With 11 original Tweaker switches you can dial in a wide range of tones. The vintage/modern switch transforms the amp from a classic rock feel to modern rock tones, while the hot/clean switch dials in the gain range. For classic amp EQs there is a USA/AC/BRIT switch, a mid cut switch, and Egnater's signature tight and bright switches let you tweak the top and bottom of the tonal spectrum. If you are looking for an amp to help you discover the tone of your dreams, then the Egnater Tweaker-88 head is the way to go.

1st Egnater

Bought this amp with the matching 2x12 cab and I couldn't be happier with my purchase! The tone on this is just outstanding. It's perfect for blues and rock. I like the lead and rhythm boost on the footswitch and I like how you can adjust the volume settings for each one. There are a lot of settings that will keep u busy for hours amazing yourself with new tones. Plenty of power pouring out of this for gigging out. I highly recommend this unit and matching cab and Sweetwater for the great customer service!

Sonic mass from Egnater!

When my Orange TH30 blew up on me, my price range and need for volume left me between this, a Blackstar ht-100 or a Fender Supersonic 60. Could not be happier with my choice. I play in a power-trio jamming heavy psychedelic rock. This thing has fuzz and overdrive for miles and years. I actually PREFER this to my Orange. You can get such awesome chime and clean tone from certain tone settings, but when you turn up the bass and middle, and set it right, this thing can sound like a early Matamp/Orange and or Electric amp. The KT-88 tubes make this thing a beast. Unique and awesome tone...with a million different ways to modify it! And with two channels and a boost for each, (in essence, 4 channels), there is a lot to play around with.

Man, this amp rocks. It has everything you'll need on a budget except reverb but it doesn't really need it. It has everything under the sun tone wise. In the british mode you can go from marshall to orange by switching the deep/tight switch to deep and keep the power section on vintage. I love that because im a big orange fan but i don't have the cash for an orange. This amp does not have a presence control but you can flip the bright switch and you'll be fine. the gain on the lead channel is very expansive. I keep mine on hot but have the gain half way and it's the best for my needs. The clean channel is a little bit thin but not to thin. The KT-88's and my 4x12 have a nice low end on them so it equals out for me. To me this amp is great for live and recording so buy it if you are on a budget and want a multi-tone/channel amp. It will cover everything you want I promise you!

Happy owner of my 2nd Eggie!

I have an original TOL 100 Watt head and love it. The Tweaker 88 packs quite a bit of sound options in this head. With the matching speaker cab I get very punchy clean tones and nice distortion tones. You can get some full, edgy clean tones out of the solo channel as well, very nice. Perfect for the studio and live gigs. The volume boosts make it perfect to have your solos be heard. The boosts make it seem like a four channel amp. Buy / Enjoy!

Great Amp (Not For Me)

I bought the Tweaker-88 after downsizing from a larger watt & sized amp. I was looking for three things: (1) Smaller size, (2) Great tones -- especially cleans, and (3) A gain channel that I could, for a lack of a better word, tweak. I got almost exactly that in the 88. It's small enough to carry around without a lot of trouble, but still big enough to look good on top of a cab. I played it through an Orange 4x12 (that's black tolex) and aesthetically it looked beautiful The Tweaker is a great amp for really spending a lot of time to dial in your sound. There are so many options. Some people might not like that; I loved it. The clean can go pretty much anywhere you want it to. My only complaint (worth .5 stars) is the overall timbre of the amp sounded a little dull to me. It didn't have the roar that I wanted on the dirty channel (even with overdrive/distortion pedals applied) and though the clean sounded beautiful, it didn't quite cut like I wanted. Ultimately I've decided to return the amp after trying out another head in a local store. For the sake of others: I play in a post-hardcore band with songs that range from near-metal to groovy jazz breaks. TLDR; if you're looking for an amp that can get loud, not break your back, and really dial in clean tones and get a solid crunch, this could be the one for you. I think it would be perfect for a more indie/classical rock mix.
