Sick!!!

Bogner Fish PreampPublished on 06/27/11 at 10:25
The Bogner Fish preamps are such a sonic explosion of tone. The have a feel and grind to them which stays in tune with the rest of the Bogner line, but gravitates towards the Brown sound of Marshall style amps. These preamps are simply stunning to look at and my only regret is that Bogner would have built a power amp to go along with them.

This preamp has the exact same features as the blue face model that we have seen frequently in the States. The black model is harder to come by but the only difference isn't tone but just cosmetics.

These units were first introduced in the early 90's and artists such as Alice in Chains and Megadeth. Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains has used this...…

This preamp has the exact same features as the blue face model that we have seen frequently in the States. The black model is harder to come by but the only difference isn't tone but just cosmetics.

These units were first introduced in the early 90's and artists such as Alice in Chains and Megadeth. Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains has used this preamp since the first album. Many other artists have come over to the Fish and many more came back when they reissues them not too long ago.

This is a fantastic unit that has a ton of versatility in tonal operations. You can go from blues rock all the way up to metal tones. There isn't much you can't do with the Fish as the possibilities are really endless.

Features:

4 Channel all tube design with master volume and presence controls (back panel)
Eight 12AX7 preamp tubes.
Blue Anodized Front with white Chicken head knobs
One front and one rear input, parallel dual outputs on back.

Country : Volume, Treble, Middle and Bass controls, 3-position bright switch
Sparkling clean sound for all musical styles.

Shark: Balls (Gain), Treble, Bass and Volume controls , 3-position bright switch
Lower gain very open sounding vox meets fender.

Strato: Gain, Volume, shared Treble, Middle and Bass controls with Brown channel
High gain aggressive, tight

Brown: Gain, Volume, shared Treble, Middle and Bass controls with Strato channel
Sound wise you can take a guess what Brown means, fat high gain.

UTILIZATION

This thing is full of preamps tubes. Here is the layout.

V1: 1st stage for Clean channel, 12ax7

V2: 1st stage for Strato channel, 12ax7

V3: 1st and 2nd stage for Brown channel, 12ax7

V4: 2nd stage Strato, 3rd Stage Brown, 12ax7

V5: 3rd stage Strato, 4th Stage Brown, 12ax7

V6: 1st and 2nd stage Shark channel, 12ax7

V7: 3rd and 4th stage Shark, 12ax7

V8: Output, 12ax7

The control knobs are a little bit confusing and it will take some time getting used to the way they interact. If your used the the overlapping thing Bogner does with their faceplates then you won't have any problems.

SOUNDS

The sounds you get from this unit are very warm and thick. It you need an amp that has juicy thick gainy tone than this is a good unit for you. The tone from the unit is distinctly a Bogner tone. It has brown sound to it but is really stands out uniquely to the sound Bogner is known for.

Whether you play a Strat or a Les Paul or humbucker style guitar you will have no problem pulling off great tones from this unit. My personal favorite is the brown setting. I like the high gain and tone that it has.

OVERALL OPINION


I wouldn't put this amp at the top of the Bogner heap, but it is a cool unit. I would say the best Bogner amp is the 20th Ann. XTC and the next been the new Twin Jets. He has new Twin Jet coming out this year hopefully that is quite the best Bogner amp I have ever heard.

These units generally float around the $2500 and really hold their value quite well. I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs a solid preamp and knows the Bogner tone. It is quite expensive for just a preamp, but they do sound fantastic.

White but Brown sound

Bogner Fish PreampPublished on 06/26/11 at 22:13
Most people think of Bogner they think of high gain quality and goodness. This preamp made its way onto the market back when nobody was doing anything like this exact Mesa Boogie. High quality preamp are now a thing of modern use.

This is the same preamp as the blue one that was mass produced. I think this one made it's way into the Japanese market but very few here in the US. Same great features and tone as the blue face model.

These units were first introduced in the early 90's and artists such as Alice in Chains and Megadeth. Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains has used this preamp since the first album. Many other artists have come over to the Fish and many more came back when...…
