shiva 6l6 thru greenbacks does it for me
I have to chime in here. I am mostly a bass player, and I don't think my guitar technique is good enough to rate a really good amp. While my Bedrock is sick I'm doing fine with a Crate V32 Palomino for now.
But I got to play my guitar players Epiphone Casino through a Bogner Shiva this weekend and can only say "HOLY **** ! This thing sounds GOOD!!!"
I really thought an amp that shows as much detail as the Bogner would only expose the weaknesses in my technique, but MAN! That thing was SWEET.
Um...I mean...I found it to be a very satisfyting experience. The amp had many very impressive tones. I especially liked dialing it in to the very edge of feeding back and then varying the volume level with a foot pedal to have varying intensity. I also discovered that just a little Chorus is a situation like that is awesome.
What can I say. I am now a Bogner fan.
MMMMM I want a cube so bad!
My Bogner 4x12 cab rocks! Always jonesing for a SHIVA, XTC, Metropolis, Duende, and UBer...I love all their amps!
Bogner really seems to be doing their best to serve every type of player which is a beautiful thing.
The new Duende with dual power sections and 2x8 inch speakers on the side definatly looks revolutionary.
I've had my Shiva EL-34 and 2x12 Shiva cab for about 6 years now. Lots of guitars and amps have come and gone during that time. I can't imagine selling the Bogner stuff.
6l6 Shiva and the Boogie cab, deadly combo.
