    My understanding is that that MHG will be discontinued sometime after the 1st of the year. THe EG5 is similar but cuts through much better in a full band mix. I have not played the MHG, but originally ordered one and was talked into the EG5 right before the M4 shipped. I am happy with the EG5 - it's pretty agressive though!

    Those are SP-77's.


    and, My Eggy IE-4 is the best preamp I have ever owned in my fleet. I still need an M4.

    The EG-5 module is the best 80's high gain sound I've ever heard. :AOK

    edit: after close examination of grooveking's pic, I've only owned like 14 of the items in the picture. It would be more, but I don't see a 2150, a 9100, a 3+, etc, etc, etc. :lol:

    Here are some clips with Egnater modules in either an M4 to VHT power amp or MOD 50 all the way baby. Somewhere in there is my last album sampler that takes you through an album's worth of different Egnater tones in a full mix setting in five minutes or so. Unfortunately, getting a great tone out an amp is pretty easy when the track is just soloed; however, getting it to sit in a full mix is a different story. Egnater stuff is stupidly versatile and full-power great tone all around.

    John,
    Good clips and tastefull playing. I cant wait to get my M4. I called back and changed the MHG to the E5. Your clip confirmed my decision. The Twin sounds great so I look forward to using it. I think the Vox Mod will be a great module for straight stuff. How aggressive is the M5? I hope I wont need a OD pedal for solos.

    Thanks, but I don;t know what you mean by the M5. The EG5 is very aggressive. This is clip has the EG5 on rhythm and lead.

    Jeff Hilligan of egnater has a made a personal modual for himself that has the best qualitys of MArshalls/ Vox type . The tone will ring in your ears for days afterwards- It still haunts me, and its been a week since I delivered a load of pickups to them. Perhaps a call to Jeff, He may come off a few- They are that good!!

    Has anyone else noticed how QUIET the Egnater stuff is? After years of playing Boogie and Marshall stuff, I was absolutely amazed at the lack of hiss from my Mod50. Even with high gain modules like the EG5 and SL2 cranked up to ridiculous gain and master levels, the level of noise is negligible. Crank a Boogie or Marshall up like that and you think you're in a wind tunnel. Just one more thing to like about these awesome amps.

    New Mod50 owner here...
    +1000 to all the comments above!

    I have the VX, which sounds great clean and channel 2 can get a great crunchy HiWatt sound.
    Just got the SL2 from AmpLounge today and I don't think I'll be looking for another amp for awhile.

    EXCEPT, the problem is now I have M.A.S.--Module Acquisition Syndrome!!

    Got my M4 for Christmas. Can't recommend it highly enough! Don't think I'll ever look at another amp again. Unless it's an Egnater. T/D module for my cleans

    Over at Egnater.com, on the "modules" page:

    The "BMAN MODULE":

    “Just Dirty Enough”. Bad description for your toothbrush. Good description for women. The perfect description for guitar tones. When you’re looking for a guitar tone that’s just dirty enough, look no further than the BMAN.

    Hey John,

    Speaking of modules you must have--you have some great clips posted and based on your experience, which 'high-gain" module do you recommend for say (be gentle...) Creed/Nickelback/Saliva type stuff?
    I'm leaning toward the E5 or Erect...

    Thanks and sorry for the hi-jack...please, continue!

    Hey Mercury25,

    Thanks for checking out the clips. Unfortunately, I am not up on those bands so I can't give you a precise answer. Sorry to be a fart-knocker, just haven't heard too much of those bands.:jo If you have any questions about the clips I've done, do feel free to ask on the clip thread in my sig.

    Thanks for the reply John...

    Those bands primarily use Mesa Dual/Triple Rectifiers, Bogner Uberschalls and the like.
    Not really too mid-scooped, but that heavier/gain tone.

    Thanks!
