Dual Parallel Amplifiers Mean Epic Tone!

Dual parallel amplifiers drive the sonic mojo of Bogner's Mephisto amplifier head, and they let you conjure tones not possible with any other configuration. The Mephisto combo sports two independent, switchable amplifiers: one voiced as a '50s American amp, while the other sounds like a '60s British amp. Switch between the two to cover massive tonal territory, or combine them for sounds you can't get without dual amplifiers. Depending on how you configure the amps, you'll have 12-, 18-, or 20-watts of power - which means the Bogner Mephisto amp head is perfect for your studio.

Bogner Mephisto Tube Amplifier Head at a Glance:
  • Dual amplifiers for unmatched tonal flexibility
  • Footswitchable power attenuator
  • Impeccable Bogner craftsmanship
Dual amplifiers for unmatched tonal flexibility

Don't think of the Mephisto as a dual-channel amp, with a "clean" channel and a "dirty" one. Both of the Mephisto's dual amplifiers can go from clean to mean just using your guitar's volume control. You're getting the sound and feel of a '50s American amp, plus a '60s British amplifier, and you can switch between them OR combine them!

Footswitchable power attenuator

The Mephisto sports a variable power attenuator, and you can toggle it with the included footswitch (which also lets you switch or combine amplifiers). Running your amp at low wattage levels is the best way to get cranked-amp tones at civilized volume levels. It's perfect for studio use, especially when you factor in the wide range of tone already offered by the dual amplifier design.

Impeccable Bogner craftsmanship

When you get a Bogner amplifier like the Mephisto, you're getting an amp that had a whole lot of love put into it. Reinhold Bogner builds the Mephisto from real pine, with a baltic birch floating baffle - high-quality woods that are ultra-strong. Components are hand-selected, and a lot of science goes into how Bogner amplifiers are wired internally. In short, Bogner builds amplifiers that are meant to give you awesome tones for life.
