Recently, during a visit to my local Guitar Center, I was perusing the used section at the back of the store, as I usually do, just in case there is something noteworthy. They have a nice slieu of amps that are always there, a couple of Mesas, some cheaper Marshall combos, a tweed Fender Blues Deluxe, Vibrolux, and a Deville. But they had just gotten something in that immediately caught my eye. Right smack in the middle of the others on the shelf, was sitting a Bogner Duende 15 watt combo. I know that Bogner amps are not a common market amp and that they are generally hard to come by locally no matter where you live, so this seemed like a real treat. I plugged it in, turned it on, and went to find a good guitar to play while it warmed up. I got back, and as soon as I started messing with the dirty channel, I was hit in the face with a sound like a bag of bricks that I hadn't heard in a long time. The amp sounded fantastic!! I was just kind of messing around, but the thing had absolutely captured the classic marshall tone without even trying. I had heard that Bogner was pretty close to marshall in sound, but this was unreal. I just couldn't help myself and I just had to crank up the volume a little. I put about halfway up, pretty loud for the regulars in there. But as soon as I started playing again, I couldn't stop grinning and I couldn't turn it down without turning it off. I was getting some attention from other people but I didn't care, I was playing a f***ing awesome amp!! Anyway, I looked at the price tag, and low and behold, used, it was still $1500. Not in my price range, but I hadn't planned on buying it any way. Even sadder still, the next day I went back with a few friends with the intention of showing them and it was gone. I asked a guy and he said he thought it was probably put on layaway. I had figured it would either be there a really long time, or barely any time at all. I was half right . Anyway, I just thought I'd share my experience with you all, cheers everyone!
