This High-gain Amp Has Attitude

Its name should tell you that the Egnater Vengeance tube guitar amplifier head is a tonal force to be reckoned with. Sure, this 2-channel, 120-watt tube amp can conjure smooth clean tones and bluesy crunch with ease, but the real mojo starts when you crank up the gain. The Vengeance is the perfect high-gain amplifier for modern rock with a ton of gain on tap while retaining excellent note definition and clarity. And thanks to the switchable 60-watt or 120-watt operation, you can drop the power of the Vengeance to get the tone of a screaming stack at a lower volume level. Bottom line: you'll rock harder with the Egnater Vengeance tube guitar amplifier head in your rig.

Egnater Vengeance Tube Guitar Amplifier Head at a Glance:
  • Made for aggression
  • Switch to half-power and double the flexibility
  • Ready for life on the road
Made for aggression

The Egnater Vengeance is ready to pummel your audience. This 120-watt monster isn't just loud, though; it's also got the note definition and clarity you need to pull off lightening-fast fretwork that doesn't dissolve into an indistinct mess. You can tailor the Vengeance's attitude to suit your music - presence and density controls let you dial in just the right amount of bite, and tight and bright voicing switches on each channel are great for balancing your rhythm and lead tones. And thanks to a switchable secondary master volume control, you can kick in a volume boost for solos to really be heard.

Switch to half-power and double the flexibility

Let's face it: there aren't a lot of places that you can really peg a 120-watt amp and get away with it, or at least get invited back. You can drop the Vengeance from 120-watt operation to 60-watt operation and get a screaming amp sound at a more reasonable volume. It's also perfect for recording, where louder is not always better. Switchable power makes the Vengeance a versatile amp for any performing or recording guitarist.

Ready for life on the road

Life on the road is tough, but the Egnater Vengeance can take it. Birch plywood construction sounds great and can take a beating, and the metal corners and handles are heavy-duty, too. And the Vengeance comes with a durable six-button metal footswitch, so it's ready to gig right out of the box.

Egnater Vengeance Tube Guitar Amplifier Head Features:
  • 2-channel tube amplifier with switchable 60-watt or 120-watt operation
  • Individual reverb on each channel with spillover when switching channels for a natural sound
  • Tight, bright, and mid voicing switches give you much more tonal control than standard tone knobs alone

Yes, Yes, Very Yes

Egnater used to be a prime source for high gain heads back in the day, but since other competitors came into the lime light, they have seemed to fall by the wayside. TBH, I have no idea why that is because Egnater should get A LOT more recognition and popularity than they are receiving; namely because of this beast right here. This amp, in all honesty, is everything I have been looking for in an amp. For context's sake, I am claiming this having played a Peavey 6505+, Mesa Boogie Dual and Triple Rectifiers, Orange TH-100, Marshall JVM 410 and 210, EVH 5150 III 100 watt and 50 watt versions, and various other brands. Even though each is good in their own right, for me--being a musician who plays at home and on the road--this thing blows me away in both settings. I am not doing a comprehensive review, but for simplicity's sake, I just want to note how AMAZING the clean channel is! This thing, when using the built in digital reverb, sounds absolutely pristine and glassy. I can describe it as having the glassiness of the cleans from 'Periphery I' and the pristine cute from the new 'Alpha & Omega' albums, if that makes sense? Looking forward to add an analog delay into my pedal chain to see what I can coax out of this beaut! Moving on to the dirty channel, WOW! This thing has a dark snarl to it that is PERFECT for all kinds of modern metal music. I have yet to experiment with other genres, but I am optimistic of what I can achieve with this thing. When using an OD, this channel achieves the tonal tightness similar to that of 'Periphery II' and 'Alpha/Omega'. (Disclaimer, this is all being said with the stock power/pre-amp tubes being used; they're pretty darn good). Both of the channels described have access to various gain, tight, bright, etc. switches which can further tailor your tone to whatever you are going for. In light of this, the Vengeance has the ability to operate at 60 watts or 120 watts of power. Therefore, this amp is quite truly perfect for a musician like me and someone who is looking for a ton of options which fit into a simple, incredibly well built, and aesthetically beautiful package. (Look at the features for further info on the back panel, tubes, foot-switch, second master volume, et. al.) To end, in comparison to EVH amps (of which I owned 3), this is definitely a darker amp, but definitely less noisy. In my experience, the EVH's I've owned--though able to have a stunningly bright and smooth tone--have put out A LOT of gain (and incidentally hum), considering they are using 7 12ax7's in the 50 watt version and 8 in the 100 watt version. For a comparison, the Vengeance houses only 5 pre-amp tubes. Considering this, from my experience, the Vengeance is FAR MORE quiet and takes pedals A LOT better than my EVH's did. Ultimately, the Vengeance is far superior in functioning both as a studio amp as well as a road amp. If you want an amp that is cost efficient, high quality, diverse, and just a wonderful sounding machine, do not hesitate to check out this head.

Very, Very Nice!

Well, I just received this monster head today. Although too soon to give a comprehensive review, it's really leaving a great impression on me. I have liked EVERY Egnater amp I've ever played, and this amp keeps that string alive for sure. The clean channel is simply amazing, which is shocking to me as most high-gainers don't have great clean channels. My Strat with Lollar pickups is just off the charts amazing sounding through this amp. All the options give you an amazing array of tonal options to mess around with. The gain channel, it's all you have heard and more. Not just a metal monster, lots of flexibility to get all types of gain sounds. I also have a 5150III 50W head, which I also love, but this is a totally different sound all together. It's a really organic distortion, not just a buzz saw going off like some high-gainers. Reminds me a little of the Mesa Mark Series amps. It took me awhile to get a sound dialed in that I really liked, but it was an awful amount of fun getting there! Can't comment much more yet, but I can say with confidence that this is one of the best heads out there at this price point. The folks at Egnater should be commended, other companies would have no problem putting a $2000-plus price tag on an amp like this. Buy with confidence!

Absolute vengeance!!!

I've had this amp for a week now. The cleans on this amp are just amazing...just pristine and clear. I've dialed in warm fender like cleans with the reverb. The notch switches for the clean channel just add to a great channel! The gain channel is something else... Loads of gain! I've dialed in several sittings that I like. The gain is a unique sound..neither Marshall or Mesa sounding. It's really sings with open chords... Each note pops out on this amp with gain. The best part the amp is super quiet! I love the way this amp can punch out killer riffs! The notch switches on this channel really shapes it in many ways. I'm still getting the feel with the other options... But they are there if needed.. The ability to change power tubes and bias them is great! Xlr recording out... The foot switch is indeed handy and allows for kicking or dropping the mids on both channels.

Had doubts at the beginning after bought it, however..

I was looking for a small tube head for metal. The 6505 mini was my first choice. I ordered it. However, they didn't have it in stock so I looked for something else that they had in stock that could replace the 6505 because I am not a very patient person and wanted to play right away. I encountered this head and read the name of it, I said, seems to be something special." I read the description of the amp and thought it would be a great bet. Even though I wanted the amp for home volume, I decided to give it a try. Okay, I always play distortion but,, when I put the clean channel, idk somehow I wanted to keep playing. just hitting random notes. its like if anything that I played sounded good. Just fat, deep, something I cannt describe with words lol. yeah that romantic I got. Well it ends up that the clean sounds very good. Then I put the distortion and it tookd me a while playing around trying to get a good tone. okay, in general the amp has very very hood distortion, but I had low volume so I struggled finding my tone. I recommend you give it some days before you find that specific combination of knowbs lol that make you happy. I didn't make it at the beginning but now I'm happy. and also tried higher volume, and of course, I found this characteristic of fat aggressive chunks. Like those from the pros in youtube, haha. yeah. but I had no EQ or something like that altering the signal. now I have everything set up at a good low volume and I got good sounds from both channels. ohh yes and the pedal included is useful. changing channels and turning the reverb on and off is enough for me. ooo and the mids in the second channel. they are good. something VERY IIMportant is that I always thought I could get the best sound in the 60 watt mode because I'm a home player, but then idk what I was thinking and changed to 120 watt mode, odd yeah., the sound improved,, and not much the volume. Conclusion is that the amp is loud as hll, but there is no huge difference between the 60 and 120 watt modes, exept for tone. 120 mode is best. So... good. ooohh and I bought the egnnater rebel cab for this. Got no complains.

first, the amp is manufactured in asia. i think there is some reliability issues. mine arrived with 3 bad tubes and the bias wasnt correct. these amps are nowhere near as tough and well built as the 6505. it's also not as loud either. one thing this amp has over the 6505 is mid boost and cleans. this amp has a very dark tone with a little less grit than the rectifier and 6505. thats something thats kinda bothering me. i think if you pair this amp with a good boost like a maxon od808, you will clean up that dark tone a little. i think this amp has potential but... you wont get that killer metal tone without a little help. pair this amp with some V30's, a good boost and an attenuator and... your set
