What an endorsenent "every setting sounds fantastic ".Thanks guys!
What Bogner/s are you using, RSRD? I almost bought a Shiva about 5 years ago but went for a Mesa Electradyne.
There are lots of great clips out there already, Assumer. I don't really have the setup to do the amp any justice . But I've always dug this demo; it's in German but I understand everything I need to. And it's dead on accurate :
Anybody have any setting suggestions? Not that I really need them; EVERY setting sounds fantastic. Just wondering what's floating boats...
I'd love to but unfortunately there are zero places to check out Bogners anywhere around me. How would you compare the Goldfinger to the standard Shiva?I would certainly put the GF into the "vintage" camp. Having played other Bogners, it is a bit of a departure for them as far as I can tell. The dirt is certainly Marshall inspired while the clean takes its cue from Fender. The 2 dirt modes include a Plexi take and a JCM 800 take. You can use the loop in the preamp for a gain boost on both modes. Not a ton of modern gain on either mode but the JCM mode with boost might get you where you want to be. The bottom end is not SUPER tight, so that might affect perceived gain and feel. The TMB circuit is good, but coupled with the "Gain EQ" provided, you shouldn't have ANY problems dialing in a tone. Whether there is enough gain on tap for you, only you can decide. Enjoy a test drive!
