The Bogner Alchemist 212 Guitar Combo Amplifier embodies a modern approach to vintage designs.
From Reinhold Bogner's sophisticated arrangement of simple circuits, currents, metal and wood, rich tones emerge. Articulate, sparkling cleans, touch-sensitive leads and a bright and colorful crunch are coaxed from its power section and poured from premium Celestion speakers.

Beginning clean and fast, featuring an open top-end and tight bottom-end, Channel 1 opens gradually to present simmering blues tones. Advancing toward saturation, Crunch mode turns up the heat adding pick response and increased tonal complexity. Channel 2, achieving critical mass, invokes the famous white-hot Bogner gain: creamy, modern and screaming with sustain. Conjure the legendary Brown sound by switching the selectable power section from 40 watts to 20.
Give your sound life and depth with Reverb and Delay in variable styles and levels. On their own journey, the effects remain separate from the original signal, occupying their own circuit. The result is a rich, living and breathing, fully realized resonance composed entirely of nature, philosophy and maybe a little magic.
