Bogner Amplification began in 1989 as an exploratory journey back in time to the era of old-school Fender blackface amps, and continued until the company's amps were in the hands of the likes of Eddie Van Halen and Allan Holdsworth. With an ear for high-gain amplifiers and equally mind-blowing pedals and pickups, Bogner has recently released some "truly fearsome" amps in the form of the Uberschall with EL34's, which Bogner has dubbed "Armageddon in a box," the flagship Ecstasy model with 6L6's or EL34's, and the dual-channel Shiva with KT88's or 6L6's. Their amp-based pedals, like the Ecstasy Blue and Ecstasy Red, and pedal collaborations with Rupert Neve only serve to strengthen their legacy.
Reinhold Bogner had been designing and building amplifiers long before leaving Germany for Los Angeles in 1989. Soon after arriving he quickly gained the respect and trust of many influential players including Steve Stevens, Dan Huff, Allan Holdsworth, Mike Landau and Steve Vai, with each of them seeking his skill to modify and custom build their amplifiers.
Word travelled quickly that an insanely talented amp designer had just arrived in L.A. and this lead to Edward Van Halen entrusting Reinhold to overhaul and revitalize his iconic Marshall Plexi. Eddie was very pleased. Bogner Amplification was born. The incredible Fish preamp came first and soon after, in 1992, Reinhold released the Ecstasy amplifier which was the epicenter for a new era of boutique amplifiers, and this was just the beginning.
Relentless in his pursuit of creating new, unique and inspiring tones, Reinhold continues to discover. His designs are unlike any other yet they incorporate the feel and tonal inspiration of classic circuits but with amazing flexibility and sonic range. Over time the company as well as the product line has grown but never has quality or customer service been sacrificed. Bogner continues to create designs that inspire.
