Terrible mistake by Egnater.

I love my new Egnater Renagade. But why does Egnater have to put such a very large God awfull, el-cheapo, cheesey, tacky, poor taste, disgusting, cheap looking "Egnater name plate" on the front of such a well made good looking amp? Coulden't they have spent a buck twenty more and put a nice looking, classy, name plate on it?....I carefully removed it. I certainly don't mind advertising Egnater but not like that.

One thing I changed is I put a 12 inch Eminence NeoMag bass speaker in it. Much lower weight to handle now. Also it tamed the high notes and it has more resolve for a tighter smoother bass for an overall improvment.

Maybe you can custom order a replacement and spell it backwards (RETANGE)?

In all honesty the white plastic is cheap and tacky looking. How much more would it have cost them to plate the plastic in say a "Dark Chrome" or something. I would love to see an Egnater emblem on the front just to promote my amp status in life and as being a proud owner. But I am affraid that people not familiar with amp manufactures or the Egnater brand, will write the amp and me off as being cheap because of the cheap looking emblem.

BTW, the Eminence NeoMag 12" bass speaker really does do the amp much justice. It is better right out of the box. Boy, wait till it breaks in.

No! Not that. However where would I send that white plastic name plate to have it chrome plated in a Dark or Black Chrome? And how much would that cost? That I would do. It would look classy and cool.

I don't see how it's all that different than the Marshall logo, but I can see how the amp might look "classier" with it removed.

That Egnater logo isn't particularly larger than the modern Marshall logo, however it's bolder and on smaller amps it may look too bulky. Marshall use a number of different size logos for their products, so the proportions are maintained.

How's the amp actually sound? That , and durability and cost are the only 3 things that count in my book . . By that picture , that logo looks like the "Marshalls" to me that I've seen for almost 40 years, and love. However ,until I saw this thread, I really never ever have thought about a logo , when it comes to amps!

The Marshall logo looks good because it's also an icon, even if it is plastic.

Most hardware stores have spray-bombs of chrome paint in a variety of colors.

Maybe you could replace the emblem with one of those very tasteful Blackheart logos.


I have several that I removed from their amps.

I like their logo,

It makes it easy to spot from the off stage area or a distance. Perhaps chromed up a bit would look ok as well, but its purpose is visibility and name recognition, IMO they did it well.

I always find it funny that Les Pauls costing 3 or 4 grand have plastic tuners, plastic binding, plastic pickguard, plastic control plate, plastic knobs etc....

I really don't mind it on an amp costing $300 to $400 like the Tweaker I have.

Anything to keep that great sounding amp inexpensive is cool by me.
