To achieve his unique sound, Cantrell blends guitar signals from multiple amps, including a Bogner Shiva and a Marsha, an amp made by Dave Friedman. “Right now,” Cantrell says at (1:20) “we run the Marsha and the Shiva…”I mean I’ve always kind of done that [amp blending.] For me, it’s kind of what the song needs…We use Matchless, Marshall, Bogner, and plenty more, you know, in combination with different guitars to kind of create tones and textures, dependingmore
"GW What does the Bogner Shiva do that Marshalls don’t? PUGET I like the sound of the Plexi, but it needs something to complement it in the low end. That’s something that the Plexi is missing, and I’d never found an amp to fill that gap. But that Bogner is the one that finally did it, and really gave the Marshall a bit of heft. "more
How about your amp? My amp of choice for the past 15 years has been the **Bogner Shiva**—it’s my favorite amp on the planet. But if I have to fly to a gig, it’s more practical to have a rental company bring an amp to the venue. The typical choice is a Marshall JCM 900, and while I can still sound like Ronnie Montrose with that amp, it doesn’t give me that same, singing “Ronnie Tone” that I get with my Shivas. So I always take along a Foxrox Captain Coconut 2 pedal to help out the tone. It’s an absolutely amazing pedal—a 3-in-1 device with the most perfect octave driver and phaser/ flanger sounds. It also has a distortion, but I never use it—I just turn the distortion down to zero, and use that part of the pedal as a mute so I can tune my guitar. I’m also a huge fan of the Rocktron Intelliverb. It’s my favorite device ever—so intuitive and easy to use. And I’ve just discovered the Eventide TimeFactor pedal, and I absolutely love it! It’s perfect for the Gamma songs I’m doing on this tour.more
“Yeah, I’ve got two Sennheiser mikes on each cabinet. I also crank my master volume to about one o’clock to get the tubes cooking. But really it is all about a great guitar, the Bogner Shiva, and really good pedals. Simplicity is always a good thing.” - [Justin Derrico](http://www.performing-musician.com/pm/dec09/articles/justinderrico.htm).more
The Bogner Shiva is an 80w amplifier with EL34, referring to vintage sound but with modern features. This amp is considered in specialized forums as one of the best channel-switchers (2-channel amplifier) in history. https://pedaltimbradoeplugado.wordpress.com/2012/12/06/andri-nieri-demonstrando-o-amplificador-bogner-shiva/more
