The wait is FINALLY over and Egnater has released the follow up to the award-winning Tweaker amplifier. The Tweaker 40 and Tweaker 88 both feature channel switching, multiple drive levels, and a ton of great tones. These babies sound great no matter where the knobs are.
I am fortunate enough to be a guy they call for sound samples on their site, so enjoy these little snippets of juicy tone from the Tweaker 40 and the Tweaker 88 (click to open the product pages in a new window). Also, the two Les Paul samples for the Tweaker 88 haven’t been posted yet, so you can get those from the master list here. They’re titled “88LesPaul…”
To record these, I mic’d up the back of the cab with an Equation Audio DS-V9, the front of the cab with an Audix i5, and the room with the stereo x-y pattern from the ZOOM H4n handheld recorder. All files were summed in Logic Pro 9 and exported dry as full resolution aiff files. (*On a side note: I’ve been traveling with this Equation Audio DS-V9 mic for 5 years now – thanks to Houser’s Music in Oroville, CA!!- and have done hundreds of gigs with it while on the road as a Product Specialist/clinician for Taylor Guitars. I’ve lost it 3 times and had it mailed back to me and this thing can take a beating and still sound amazing. Live, session, vocals, acoustic, guitar cabs… it seems to love everything for an all-around utility microphone. Check them out at EquationAudio.com.)
