Egnator Rebel 20 Head


Categories: ,


Super clean condition with new tubes installed. Probably the most amp you can get in this price range, with features you might expect only an expensive boutique amp, and/or not found on any amp that I’m aware of. At 20-watts, it’s a good all around amp, be it studio, backstage, or small clubs, but with the output wattage knob, you can go from 1 to 20 watts, which makes it controllable for guys playing in a condo with thin walls. Using the watt selection you can adjust the headroom – at “1” you will get output distortion (you know, the “sweet” distortion – not buzzy preamp distortion) and natural tube compression more easily. At the full “20”, the amp will have considerable more output with a clean tone, unless of course you crank the gain up in which case you have that singing sustain that you’ll want in a club setting. The only other amp I’ve had with this feature was a Maven Peal Tuscadero 1-50, which was over $2K. Along with the wattage selector, the other extremely unique feature is the power amp section, with a knob that dials in a pair of EL84s, a pair of 6V6’s, or any blend in between. Talk about innovation! I’m sure it’s been done before, but this amp sells new for just $599! The choice of power tubes gives this baby the ability to completely change its character, and truly versatile for virtually any type of music, from Jazz to Blues, to Hard Rock, or Country. The front panel features: Tube Selector, Wattage Selector, Master Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble, Gain, Bright Switch, and Tight Switch. The rear of the amp features an effects loop at the back, outputs for 4, 8, or 16 ohm loads. Full tube complement consists of two 6V6s, two EL84s, and three 12AX7s. The Tight Switch tightens up the bottom end for better note definition and is especially useful at higher gain settings. For a good demo by Guitar World, click here.
