The Bogner Alchemist 40W/20W Tube Guitar Amp Head boasts sparkling, articulate cleans, touch-sensitive leads and a bright and colorful crunch. Bogner Alchemist amplifiers offer you a modern take on vintage tube amp design. The Bogner Alchemist amp head owes its remarkable tonality to a 6L6 class-AB power section, and 5 - 12AX7 preamp tubes. Its timeless appeal, though, comes from modern sonic ingenuity.
Bogner Alchemist amps have a 2-channel design. Each channel has its own voice and identity. Beginning clean and fast, featuring an open top-end and tight bottom-end, Channel 1 opens gradually to present simmering blues tones that churn like spirits in a cauldron. Advancing toward saturation, Crunch mode turns up the heat adding the perfect touch of nastiness with added pick response and increased tonal complexity. Channel 2, achieving critical mass, invokes the famous white-hot Bogner gainâ??creamy, modern and screaming with sustainâ??offering everything from Brit rock right through to modern metal. Plus, with variable Bright settings, each channel can be customized to match the tone of your guitar and rig.
The Alchemist tube amp head's power section is selectable from 40 to 20 watts. When switched to 20W, Alchemist undergoes a complete sonic metamorphosis, changing its harmonic complexity and feel to conjure the essence of the legendary Brown sound.
Reverb and Delay, in variable styles and levels, run in parallel separate from the original signal. The result is a rich, living and breathing, fully realized resonance capable of producing a complete tonal landscape.
Bogner includes a 4-button footswitch with the Alchemist 40w tube amp head.
This head is everything I've looked for over the years, it is absolutely crushing for heavy riffs, really precise for intricate riffs, and cleans up well for solos without turning into an Ice Pick. Paired up with the Avatar G412 Contemporary, I've never heard my hands through anything better.
