A Power-packed 2-channel All-tube, 15-watt Head for Studio and Stage!

The Bogner Custom Shop Duende Head puts all the features of the "big" amps into a 15-watt unit that's perfect for studio work, rehearsals, smaller stages, or playing at home. The Custom Shop Duende Head offers two channels, each with it's own dedicated reverb control. You get crystal-clear clean tones, tasty mid-gain crunch, and even high-gain sustain from this amp, but that's just the beginning: you can combine the channels for even more amazing tones, and the addition of great-sounding onboard tremolo and reverb only adds to the fun. In addition, a tube-buffered effects loop and direct recording output are built into the fabulous Custom Shop Duende Head.

Bogner Custom Shop Duende Head 15-watt Tube Amplifier Head at a Glance:
  • Incredible playing experience
  • The man behind the amps
  • Handcrafted quality

Incredible playing experience
The Custom Shop Duende Head puts out 15 watts of rich tube tone from its pair of 6v6 power tubes and five 12AX7 preamp tubes - a solid foundation for a feature-packed amp! This portable unit's clean channel can take you from pristine to crunchy tones, while a second channel delivers higher gain tones with tight lows. You can combine both channels for a stellar combination of American and British amp characteristics, giving you a truly exhilarating playing experience. Top it all off with shimmering reverb with independent levels for each channel, and a tremolo with speed and depth controls. Want even more? The Custom Shop Duende Head also includes a tube-buffered effects loop and compensated recording output for directly connecting to mixers and recorders. All this from a very compact amp that's easy to transport to the studio, rehearsal, or gig.

The man behind the amps
Though Reinhold Bogner began designing and building amplifiers long before leaving Germany for the U.S. in 1989, his career really took off soon after arriving in Los Angeles. He quickly gained the trust of many influential players, including Steve Stevens, Dan Huff, Allan Holdsworth, Mike Landau and Steve Vai, who sought out his skill at modifying and custom building their amps. Eddie Van Halen entrusted Reinhold to overhaul and revitalize his number one Marshall Plexi, with great results. Soon after, Bogner Amplification was born, and the rest, they say, is history.

Handcrafted quality
Bogner amps are handcrafted, using only the finest components available. When you plug into a Bogner, you're not simply getting premium tone; you're getting the value of a piece of gear that's made to be played for years to come and built to handle the rigors of the road. From speakers to pre- and power amp designs, cabinets to cosmetic touches, Bogner amps are built to give you the best, most reliable playing experience, period.
