So I find this on my doorstep this morning:

Since I love mah Rockerverb 50s so much...

I open the box and...

Schweet! A Bogner Duende 30 watt head!

The cleans are beautiful. Much better than my previous Krank Rev Jr. The gain on tap, while not enough for t3h bR00t4lz, can really rock. I love how you can blend the channels together... metal can be coaxed very easily with an OD. The spring reverb is very lush, as is the tremolo.

$1200+ shipping.

It was a brand new blemished item. A tiny tear in the tolex was a small price to pay for what was, as the included price tag said, a $3100 amp.

is that the one where you can actually control the blend of preamp tube choice?


I don't think so.
The gimmick is that you can blend the two channels together to create tonal sex. I think the preamp only takes 12AX7s.

12AX7's are preamp tubes You mean EL84's and 6V6's, and that's the Egnater Rebel.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

Whats with the OJ box?




Some places can't store the correct box for the item (if it's been on display etc), since there isn't enough room. So they'l ship it in what ever's lying around. My Powerball came in a Valveking box.....

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

Further impressions:

The amp build is SOLID. Absolutely astounding. The pull knobs work great an don't feel shoddy at all. I love the vintage vibe that the Duende gives off.

The cleans, like I said, are amazing. The feel warm and inspiring, to say the least. The gain knob doesn't really push it anywhere other than a warm overdriven clean that I love. (This is regarding Channel A)

Channel B is the one that can get dirty. There is no separate EQ for it (two knobs, the Air and Body, act as master treble and bass controls, respectively), something that I don't really get. But the gain works well enough, and the volume knob can be pulled out to act as a gain boost. Like I said, it can't really do metal on it's own, but if you throw an OD in front of it, it can do Metallica and Megadeth easily.

The real catch is the ability to blend the two channels. When blended, it can yield a very smooth, buttery sound (sheesh, it sounds like I'm talking about a drink.) I find it easy to get Yngwie tones from blending the channels with an OD and some reverb.

Speaking of the reverb, it sounds terrific. Very high quality stuff, as with the tremolo (which you can set the speed for, which I find cool).

The only con I can think of is that it sounds a bit too darkly-voiced. On channel A, a bright setting is available, but only for that channel. I find myself using the bridge pickup more with this amp, as opposed to the neck pickup which I used more before I got the Duende.

Man that looks great! Such a classy looking amp

I bet that really roars when you turn up the master volume

Haven't really cranked it yet, due to my only having a 1x12 speaker and a mismatched resistance (the head is 8 ohms, the cab is 16). That might have to be fixed soon, though.
