  • Have you ever had an amp that...

    Every time you turn it on, you say "wow...THAT is my sound..."



    I'm getting that with the Bogner. I could look at other amps, but when I realize I have a Fender Clean, Marshall Crunch, and searing liquidy lead tone, that pretty much kills amp GAS.



    I've only had the amp about a month, but, still loving it



    My pedal GAS and guitar GAS on the other hand.....

    Don't feel bad. My GAS for pedals is unreal right now. I've basically redone my whole board in the last two months, an still have the urge to pick up several more pedals.



    But I can't yet. I ordered a pedalboard/case from Salvage Custom and I'm waiting to get that in so I can see how much room ill have.

      I played a Shiva last night at a friends rehearsal and was blown away,but I hear the Ecstasy is even better. I am picking up the Bogner Blue pedal tomorrow and I am getting a Splawn Nitro also, so hopefully that will cure my gas for the time being.

        Been saying that same thing since last march when I bought the mak4. Literally one of the last pieces of gear I would ever consider selling



        I really wish I could get it converted down to 2 spaces though, so everything would fit in my 6 space rack. I was excited when he started talking about it. Oh well.





        Glad you love the 101b, id love to own one some day!

          Nice man! From what I've heard, the Bogner pedals get about 75-80% of the way there...I need to play one in person, and really would love to run one through the loop of my bogner and compare the channels.



          Tough to get everything from the preamp circuit into a pedal!

              Yep, bought my Deliverance 60 four or five years ago and it still blows me away every time I turn it on.



              My Prosonic does the same thing but the D60 is definitely "my sound".

                  I found my sound back in 2006 with this in a studio. Glad i could finally afford one in 2011.

                    Well, first off, I don't think I'm a one sound kinda guy. I've found "my sound" with a number of different amps, and while they might have sounded significantly different, they were what I was looking for from each particular amp. However, having said that, my 3 channel Dual Rectifier just does it for me more so than any other amp I've used, and I don't play Nickelback type bro-rock

                        Bryan - I found that with my JCA setup, but I've played some amps that have sounded so good to my ears that my playing seems to go to another level. Lead riffs just seem to pop out of nowhere. I guess good tone could be indirectly related to good playing.



                        I recall 4 amps that I've had that experience with: Carvin Legacy, Jet City, Bogner Uber, and believe it or not that little 15 watter DSL I played yesterday.

                          I have that with my 2203. It's why i have had it for 10 years or so now. I also felt that way when i had a JCA100H (but only after i put Sovtek 6L6WXT+'s in it). It was different, but it was awesome. I only sold it because i had a friend that really needed an amp cheap and i wasn't using it. My DSL50 does it for me at high volumes too. Basically, i can get that feeling from any Marshall based circuit.

                              Yup, I think I'm the same way. Marshall based and I'm there. I tried to get into Mesa amps, but never really could. My fallback was usually Peavey amps for the longest time, but I figured out that Marshall-esque is my flavor and that helps me with future gear
