15 watts of... everything? The Egnater Tweaker operates on a pair of 6v6's. It's single channel offers an array of toggle switches to refine your tone. You can choose between three different settings which emulate names such as Mesa, Marshall, and Vox (called USA, Brit, and AC--respectively). The inclusion of an effects loops is a great touch.


The tone controls are very responsive. The amp's many toggles allow for a large variety of sounds. The amp played very well with pedals and I had no troubles at all with the effects loop (unlike certain other amps I own). Even at 15 watts the amp is very loud.


Played with a gibson Les Paul Standard and an Explorer traditional Pro. 1x12 Egnater cab. No pedals.

The Brit, AC, and USA settings do a good job at capturing the flavors represented. The "clean" mode had plenty of gain available. Switching to "Hot" mode carried on where the other left off, offering a surprising amount of aggression. The amp lost quite a bit of clarity as the volume increased. I discovered that the amp responds quite differently dependent on the guitar chosen. The Les Paul Standard I played through it sounded very tame and dapper compared to the Explorer and sometimes sounded muffled. The explorer sounded much more articulate with gain and seemed to retain more clarity at higher volumes as well.


The Tweaker is a wonderful amp for the price. Compared against the Tweaker 40 and 88 models, I enjoyed the 15 the most. It retained more character than the other amps, which seemed too ambitious in their feature sets to deliver. Do not expect the Tweaker to sound all that close in its impersonations of a Marshall or a Vox--but with a decent delay and a boost, the amp will come close enough for most.
