Hey guys, I'm thinking about picking up a Tweaker 40 head pretty soon here, there's a used one at my local GC for 300-ish bucks I think it was. I was just wondering if those with experience with this head could tell me roughly what it's maximum situation where I could play it un-mic'd. I don't play in a band or anything right now, just jamming in friend's basements and at home, but I'd hope I'd be able to play some small shows if I wanted to.

For a few bucks more, you'll probably be happier with the Tweaker 88, also available at GC Used. I had one before I went up to the TourMaster.

I had also thought about the 88, but I'm worried that it might be too much for when I'm just playing by myself at home and I won't be able to crank it enough to push the tubes or something. This is also going to be my first tube amp so I guess I'm also a bit paranoid about making the wrong decision when I comes time to buy.
Thanks for your help though dude.

You don't need to push it to power tube distortion (KT88). You'll be using the preamp tubes in conjunction with the EQ and Master for tone-shaping.

All right cool. When you had your Tweaker, were you running it through the Tweaker cab?

I saw they dropped prices on at least some of their amps, the Vengeance ($999) and Armageddon ($1499). Has anyone bought an egnator lately? this thread is 6 months old now...
