Bogner Shiva Head with Reverb 2-channel Tube Guitar Amp Head at a Glance:
  • Stellar tone and handy features
  • The man behind the amps
  • Handcrafted quality

Stellar tone and handy features
This 80-watt tube amp head uses EL34 power tubes and individual reverb controls on each of its two channels, allowing you to dial in and control two individualized sounds and access them via a handy footswitch, which also includes boost- and reverb-switching functions. Shiva includes a tube-buffered effects loop plus global master volume and presence controls.

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 and cabinets 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 preamp and power amp designs, cabinets to cosmetic touches, Bogner amps and cabs are built to give you the best, most reliable playing experience. Period.

Best Amp I ever owned

I am writing this review for anyone that is on the fence with this amp. I was turned on to my shiva by my jazz guitar teacher at collage. Honestly, I sucked at jazz. I only took the class to learn how to write solos. I feel in love with the clean tone this amp had. It, with the revered is unbelievable. I saved up and purchased my Shiva EL34 head with a Bogner 4x12 cab and played in my Hard rock/metal band with it. Yes, this amp kicks as a metal amp. If you like slayer or any classic thrash this amp is killer. It can sound like the greatest JCM800 in the world with a clean that is pure beauty. I was using passive pickups and no overdrive pedals in the front end and had all the gain I needed. To be fair thou, our rhythm guitarist played EMG 81 pickups and a Mesa Boogie duel rec so we had a good balanced sound.

Beyond Expectation

I own a Marshall DSL100H, a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier, and a Mesa Boogie Twin V preamp/Behringer power amp...they are all now for sale. This Shiva EL34 is sending to a 16 ohm 240 watt Marshall 4x12 slant. I plugged in my PRS Custom 24, turned it on, and proceeded to wet my pants. Say no more.
Music background: 45 years semi pro - rock, then blues, now jazz

Awesome Amp!!

I just got this amp a few days ago, totally sweet sounding amp! I got the 6L6 version of this amp. It sounds amazing! Sparkling cleans, and very sweet distortion. The distortion is very bright and open(not too compressed), sounds great. Oh, and very loud!! I will never need another amp, I am happy with my purchase and am not looking back!
