WOW!!! I played the Eganter Rebel for 40 minutes today at GC. My favorite sales guy called me at 11:45 to tell me that they just got them in. By 12:45 I was test driving one. I helped him unpack it from the box. I have been contemplating trading in my Fender Supersonic because 60 watts seems like overkill since my band is always mic'd. After playing the Rebel my choice was easy. I promptly traded in the SS in favor of the Rebel. I played the Regbel through the matching 2x12 cab which sounded awesome but I am ordering the 1x12 cab because I don't want to haul around a 2x12(not to say I won't upgrade to the 2x12 down the road). The clean sounds from this amp surprised me. There's a lot more clean headroom than you would think. I used to own a Tiny Terror and the Rebel kicks its ass on the clean channel. The amount of gain on this amp is VERY substantial. It has every bit as much gain as my previous SS and very close to the Tiny Terror I had. The articulation on the gain channel is what sold me. Even with the gain maxed out you can hear every note clear as a bell. I have heard that this can be expected with EL84 tubes but this is my first experience with EL84's. As you may know this amp has a cool feature that allows you to utilize either 6V6 tubes or EL84's, or you can blend the two. This is so damn cool I can't believe more amp manufaturers haven't developed this feature. The power scaling feature works well also. I cannot foresee any gig situation that would not be handled by the Rebel. My main reason for ditching the SS in favor of the Rebel is because at 20 watts it's easy to get the tubes cooking into their sweet spot. This was nearly impossible(especially on the clean channel) with the SS. I am one happy camper.
