PG's Rebecca Dirks is On Location at the 2011 NAMM Show where she swings by the Bogner Amplification booth. In this segment, we get our first demos of the Mephisto and Panama amps. The Mephisto is two amps in one--loaded with two 6V6 and two EL84 tubes. Play each channel separately or blend them together for a unique sound. With both channels cranked, it pushes about 25 watts and has built in attenuation. In addition, the Panama goes falls in line with Bogner's International line of amps. This model is a 6V6-loaded, 4-watt bedroom monster with plenty of gain for any style of player.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
