    What's the big deal about Bogner?

    Bogner, super stiff? You sure you played a Bogner? Every one I've played is anything but.

    Alice in Chains tones on latest tour?

    Last I heard it was two Marshas. Before that was a Marsha/20th Shiva, but that rig didn't last long.

    Price Check: Bogner Ecstacy 101B Used

    Must be some glaring condition issues. Usually the 101b heads sell for a little more than 2k...if it has the class a/ab switch, it can go up a bit more. If the deal is for the Bogner 4x12 and should probably cost around $2800 give or take.

    Bogner Shiva 20th Tube swap - whats best?

    The only problem with that is you'd be underpowering the amp, unless you change the transformer out as well. I have one on the way that is loaded with Winged C 6550' should try those out...I've heard nothing but good things about these tubes in this amp, even from diehard EL34 users.

    Bogner Shiva, will it do modern rock?

    Jerry used an EL34 Shiva for almost the entire Degradation Trip recordings. That being said, if you want the best Shiva, I'd go with the 20th Ann. model. It cuts better and is more open sounding than the old Shivas. It also has more gain to get you into modern territory.

    XTC Classic on the way... questions?

    Man, you got a great deal and you can cover so much ground with that amp. I have the 20th XTC and it's insane how versatile it is. As someone else mentioned, the XTC Classic will really shine as you open it up, although the master volume is very good and sounds great at low volumes, too.

    XTC Classic on the way... questions?

    It'll be closer to a Marshall, but will still have it's own very unique footprint. It's more open than the 101b and tighter with a nicer clean. It doesn't have as much gain (hey who really needs all of it anyway), but it does have more bite which I like. Compared to the Shiva, it will be a...

    PT 100 vs. Bogner Ecstasy

    For me the 20th Ann. Ecstasy is the best amp I've heard or played. It is actually easy to dial in and the switches are much more effective, whereas the 101b took some serious tweaking. It has more of a Marshall bite than other Ecstasy's and is tighter and more open sounding. If I had to choose...

    Bogner Shiva EL34 older or newer?

    The 20th Shiva is a killer amp. I wanna get one eventually and I have the 20th XTC and Twin Jet. $2300 with the cab is a great price.

    Bogner Shiva EL34 older or newer?

    Get a new with 34's if you want versatility and a more open Shiva. Get an older one if you like more of a compressed and darker tone.

    Advice regarding Bogner 20th XTC/Matchless Independence/ Mesa Stiletto

    Well the 20th XTC is different than a 101b for example. It is more in your face if you want it to be.

    Cabs on the Bogner ecstacy.

    V30/H30 in my Bogner 4x12 works great for me. Interested in trying the vaunted Scumback M75/H75 combo someday...anybody using these speakers with their XTC?

    Switched from KT88's to EL34's in my Bogner 20th Shiva. Findings/Results.

    This is my experience with a KT88 to EL34 conversion on my Twin Jet. The 34's made the amp more toneful and more saturated. The KT88's sound hi-fi, more open, glassy and don't have as sweet of a midrange.

    Wow, yeah, I think I'm digging the Naked more than Marsha...nice clips and playing, brah.

    Can the Bogner Ecstasy 101B do Metal???

    The 20th Ann. XTC does metal better than my old 101b. It's tighter and less compressed. That said, if I was all about playing metal, I'd go for a Twin Jet...which I have as has two gain channels that excel at prog. metal. I modded mine for EL34's and it sounds richer, more saturated...

    Celestions>>Scumbacks: Worth the switch?

    Hey man, what do you like so much about the M75 over Celestions? I'm thinking of upgrading from my V30/H30 cab.

    Marsha, Marsha, Marsha....

    Does it need some volume, like an old Plexi, to get it sounding right? or is the master volume exceptional?

    20th anniversary Shiva heads

    I saw's an older video...Jerry switched to a dual Marsha rig around 6 months or so ago. I think there might be (IIRC) a video from the Jimmy Kimmel show, where he is using the 20th Shiva with a Marsha.

    20th anniversary Shiva heads

    Sorry to hear...well, you still have a great amp to inspire you if nothing else. I couldn't warm up to the KT88's in my Twin Jet, but I could see how they serve the Shiva...since it's a more vintage sounding overdrive by nature.

    20th anniversary Shiva heads

    Yeah the Twin Jet sounds killer with EL34's...KT88's were more open, dryer, more hi-fi, more flat in the midrange, deeper in the bass, but not as focused and the highs were glassy. I have a 20th XTC and that's my #1...a desert island amp...the 20th Shiva isn't as wide in the midrange or as bold...
