This is the 1x12 version of the Bogner Duende amplifier. This has a great open tone and a little looser feel on the bottom end then the 10 inch version. Not better or worse just a most slight difference. Has a nice black tolex covering and a wheat brown grille cloth front.
This amp is such an awesome tone monster. The tone from this amp is one of the best and most articulate amps that I have ever seen or heard. The cleans are chimey and alone make this amp worth owning. Then you get to the distortion channel and that is where this amp really reigns. The distortion is in the British flavor of tonal characteristics but has its own thing going. It i distinctively a Bogner tone and you can feel and hear it in the harmonics but this amps takes what Marshall was never able to do and devour it.

This is premium tone at a premium cost. The amp is a bit expensive for a lot of people but one who have played a Bogner you will immediately hear and feel what you have been missing.
This amp sounds phenomenal with any guitar in any style pickup. I feel that this amp elevates you playing to a point of coming into you own. It basically takes what you are as a player and enhances everything that you do.
The cleans are nice and sweet like an old Fender amp from the 50's or 60's. The distortion channel is where this thing lives. The overdrive is full and warm with a touch are dark characteristics. The tone is alive to say the least. The best way to describe how you feel when playing this amp is, exuberant!
This is a fantastic amp at a fantastic price. at new these amps come in at around $2500, which isn't bad for a Bogner amp that is multiple channels. The XTC range from $3800- $4200. Granted that is the flagship amplifier for Bogner.
I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs a solid amp and are just getting into the boutique amp world. You may never play anything else after this amp though.
The Bogner Duende Seco Mojado is a high end guitar combo amplifier. The amp is tube based, consisting of two 6V6 power tubes and five 12AX7 preamplifier tubes. The amp has a very unique make up when it comes to the speakers, and is really what gives it it's unique tone. It has a single 12" speaker facing out, and two 8" speakers on the sides of the amp, making for a sound that extends in all directions and really fills up a room. The amp has two separate amplifiers, each of which delivers 15 watts of power. The amp has a 1/4" input and two channels to work with. It also has both reverb and tremolo effects built in.
Using the Bogner Duende Seco Mojado isn't too hard, as there isn't anything out of the ordinary going on with it's parameters. If you are familiar with the parameters normally found on guitar amps, this knowledge should translate here as the parameters found here are pretty ubiquitous. The first channel has parameters for gain, treble, bass, and volume, while the second channel has knobs for gain and volume. You can use the two channels separately or at the same time. The amp also has a master EQ section with parameters for air and body which applies to both of the channels. To control the reverb it has two separate controllers for each of the channels, and the tremolo has parameters for speed and depth. I haven't seen a manual for the Bogner Duende Seco Mojado so I can't say anything about what it might have to offer.
I've only had the chance to try out the Bogner Duende Seco Mojado on two different recording sessions. However, I wasn't playing at all on the session so I unfortunately didn't get to do too much fiddling with the amp, but nonetheless the sounds that we got were very impressive. The amp fills up a room extremely well, as it shoots the sound in all different directions. I put microphones (Shure SM57s) on all three speakers, which is definitely the only time that I've used three different microphones on one guitar amplifier. We were extremely happy with the tone that got, as this is one of the fullest sounding amps that I've heard in this range of wattage.
While I'm grateful that I was able to do a few sessions with the Bogner Duende Seco Mojado, because of the price it really isn't something I can ever consider getting. Bogner is known for making incredible gear, and the Duende Seco Mojado is a prime example of their craftsmanship. The amp has all the features and then some that you could ever ask for from a guitar amp. If you're considered with the size, trust me when I say that the three speakers and two separate amplifiers can get extremely loud if you need it. If you've got a ton of money to spend on a top of the line guitar amp, definitely try out Bogner Duende Seco Mojado, as it really doesn't get much better.

Polaroil's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Great"
2 channels All lamps (6V6), 15 watts wholesale, tremolo and reverb (adjustable per channel), effects loop. Joint Equalization "air" and "body" and "treble and" bass "specific clear sound." Bright "on clear channel" boost "on overdrive channel. See other reviews for the rest
The equalization is particularly unconventional at first, but ultra effective, it provides a wide variety of clean sounds plays since 4 knobs, excluding the gain and bright ...
For channel B, simpler, "body" and "air" almost "bass" and "treble" and sculpt the sound of very fine way.
The tremolo and reverb are set back, there are more key too
The clean sounds are really many of crystalline fat consistently great from Fender, Vox, Mesa, Marshall ... and can be embellished with a beautiful tremolo and a nice reverb that knows how to stay quiet and classy. Reserve clear sound is good, but just good for a drummer without much margin.
Some say that the light is the highlight of the amp, but I also love the drive that sounds like a very good Marshall with a grain tight enough, many mediums to drill. It is in the classic rock, hard rock up without problems, but not metal, for example.
I waited a year for a mature mind, I have not used live. For me it is perfect, the only possible weakness is the volume in the clear if you want the "headroom". An excellent high-end combo that can last a lifetime

Berzin's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Almost everything has been said in previous reviews. Concerning the characteristics, I appreciate the fact that he almost everything (loop, two channels, reverb, tremolo) which is not always the case with low power amps. However, rather than a general setting the tone (air and body), I would have preferred a tone dedicated specifically to the crunch channel. But hey, it's a matter of choice of manufacturer. Furthermore, the output offset does not sound great, I knew better, Koch notamment.Enfin for a 15 w, I find bulky and heavy (20 kg), but I think the sound is at that price because it is rare to have nice bass with a box small and light.
An additional output hp with impedance selector would have been welcome.
Is a simple amp to use, but still requires some time to master. It is not at home when Marshall and turn a knob, the sound changes radically, because the tones, especially that of the clean channel is very effective. Anyway, whatever the setting, it sounds. Note that the amp still sounds better when pushed a bit and the crunch channel sounds much stronger than the clear.
The stamp of this instrument is really excellent. At the last rehearsal, the musicians with whom I play noted on several occasions. As always with Bogner is an amplifier designed for stage and sounding group, unlike many amps that are good at home, but do not break in a mix.Nous have two channels:
Channel-A, although with a gain setting crunch remains very low and clear, even pushing it. It offers a sound like Fender, like Shiva (who also little crunch), but unlike the previous one, the Duende is more brillant.Le brightness setting is also very effective. It is worthy of the best Fender.
The B-channel overdrive is typed in English. It has enough gain to go to hard rock. The very gradual gain allows for a very light crunch. Great art.
The reverb is good, it fulfills its Office and the tremolo is superb, although I do not like this, I like to use it.
The ability to use both channels at the same time is interesting because it provides a sound typical.
This amp, although relatively simple, allows for many different stamps?
I own this amp for two weeks. I love the sound, really good and gives full measure group. The effectiveness of the settings is really the mark of quality. However, it needs to be pushed and I do not see the amp flat. I regret a little above its bulk and weight, but it moved my left or my XTC Shiva. It's really a very nice amp that I do not regret the purchase.
I'm curious to test the stereo version of the craft. Stamp beautiful
