Power and portability come together in this Egnater half stack.
Now you can get the Egnater Rebel 20 amp head and Rebel 112X cabinet in one hot ultra-portable half-stack.
Rebel 20 Amplifier Head
The Rebel 20 from Egnater is a truly professional amp head with features and sound that are anything but small. Inside you'll find three GrooveTubes 12AX7 preamp tubes, a pair of GrooveTubes EL84 power tubes, and a pair of GrooveTubes 6V6 power tubes. Not only do you get the signature Egnater TIGHT and BRIGHT voicing switches, you also have wide range gain control that lets you go from bluesy clean up to roaring high-gain lead all using a single gain knob.
The Watts control lets you turn the Rebel 20's power from 20 watts to 1 watt for bandstand to bedroom volume. This guitar amp head also includes a professional quality effects loop that doesn't "suck tone." But the coolest feature of the Egnater Rebel 20 is the TUBE MIX control—an Egnater first. With the TUBE MIX knob turned counterclockwise you get the classic American sound of the 6V6 power tubes. Set the Rebel 20's knob full clockwise to experience the more aggressive, British sound of the EL84 tubes. For the first time, you can blend the two types of tubes in any proportion you wish to create a truly signature sound.
Rebel 112X Extension Cabinet
The Egnater Rebel 112X is a 1 x 12" birch speaker cabinet that combines musical prowess and functionality. The closed-back cab is loaded with a custom-voiced Egnater Celestion Elite 80 speaker. The front-ported design provides maximum bass response and sweet singing highs. With a height of just over 15" and width of less than 19", the Rebel 112X speaker cab is compact enough to fit on any size stage and is the perfect complement to the Rebel 20 head.

Comments about Egnater Rebel Half Stack:
Guitarists all around the world are on a constant quest to find that sound. And from the many guitars, effects, speakers, and amps to choose from, it shouldnt be too difficult to find the perfect match right? Wrong. While I was searching for an amp, I found the amount and variety of gear available to be overwhelming and I became absolutely frustrated at times during my search. Finally I found this little half stack called the Rebel 20 and I bought it. I cant tell you if the Egnater Rebel 20 is right for you but it was certainly right for me and Ill tell you why. I bought the Egnater Rebel 20 Half-Stack because I wanted a high class, versatile tube amp that would sound good for just about any type of music. The Rebel 20 is an all-tube head with a variety of interesting parameters: It has two sets of blendable power tubes 6V6s and EL84s. The tone differences are pretty subtle but the 6V6s are a little bit chimier and the EL84s are slightly more aggressive. You can mix them to get any combination you want. Still, I tend to use one set or the other since the tone differences are quite subtle. It also has a wattage control so you can adjust the wattage of the amp to any point between 1 and 20 watts. This is a neat feature because, by turning down the wattage, you can keep the volume and gain up to get a very power tube-driven sound at a relatively low volume. The amp also has two small switches Tight and Bright which allow you to adjust the amps well, tightness and brightness. The Tight switch cleans up the overall sound a little bit and takes some of the fatness away from the tone. The Bright switch gives the amps sound a ringing high end. A good way to use this switch is in collaboration with the treble knob, (if the bright switch is on, the treble should be lower than normal). As Ive experimented with this amplifier Ive found myself using these switches about half the time. They dont make the sound better; they just change it. Apart from all those interesting knobs and switches are the usual things youd expect to find on an amp: master volume, treble, mid, and bass. The equalizer controls are active so if you turn the bass, mid, and treble knobs all the way down, you wont get any sound at all. The speaker is a 12 inch, 80 watt Celestion in a closed-backed cabinet with a port in the front. Its got a nice tight bass, clear mids and highs and it sounds amazing with the Rebel 20. It doesnt have the reverb an open-backed cabinet would have and if you like using open-backed cabinets, the closed-back Egnater might not be your cup of tea. With all these parameters, you can get loads of different sounds with this amp and it is impossible to make it sound bad, Ive tried! There are several things I dont like about this amp: For one thing, it has no reverb. I dont use reverb too often but it would be nice to have, especially with the closed-back speaker cabinet, (which has all the reverb of a fat pillow). Also, if you use it on stage you may want a distortion pedal. Its only a one-channel amp you cant easily change from a clean to a distorted sound between songs. There are several points that I think are very impressive about this little half stack: For one, it sounds amazing with a variety of guitars. I tried two Telecasters, a Strat, a Les Paul, a Yamaha SG, two Carvins, a Jazzmaster, a Danelectro, and a Guild Bluesbird they all sounded excellent in their own ways. The Rebel 20 head and speaker have nice piping between the differently colored vinyls. The head also has two metal vents to help keep the tubes cool one on the back and one on the top. Interestingly enough, my Rebel 20 doesnt have Groove Tubes. Instead, it came with JJ power tubes and Sovtek preamp tubes. Im not complaining, the JJ and Sovtek tubes sound great and Im sure Egnaters idea to change them was for the better. To sum up, Ive played many excellent amps with top-notch effects and guitars and Im willing to say that this little bugger could hold its own against the best Fender combos and Marshall stacks available. It can be used to play anything from Dave Brubeck to Radiohead to Red Hot Chili Peppers to The Beatles and play it well! Also, the Rebel 20 sounds good even at low volumes so you can get good sounds in your bedroom or living room. If youre looking for a small, versatile amp for recording, practicing, or gigging you could do worse than to consider the Rebel 20.
