SYNERGY / BOGNER MODULES LAUNCH TODAY, MARCH 12TH!

BOGNER Amplification joins forces with SYNERGY AMPS to release:

BOGNER ECSTASY – BOGNER ÜBERSCHALL DUAL CHANNEL TUBE PREAMP MODULES

SYNERGY Amps proudly announces cooperation with iconic and legendary hi-gain amp designer Reinhold Bogner. Without a doubt, Reinhold is king in the world of boutique high gain. His creations have been found backing up a wide range of A-list players, such as Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell, Alter Bridge’s Mark Tremonti, Steve Lukather, George Lynch, Eric Johnson and even the late, great Walter Becker.

By partnering with such iconic amplifier designers as Reinhold Bogner, Synergy is able to offer you the most sought-after tones in all-tube designs that are perfect for the direct-recording, lower-stage-volume and compact-guitar-rig demands of today. It’s easy to see why the Synergy preamp module system is taking the industry by storm.

There was no way Synergy wasn’t going to get Reinhold Bogner to re-create his classic metal machine in a Synergy module format. The BOGNER ECSTASY and BOGNER ÜBERSCHALL amps are true iconic classics and helped in defining modern hi-gain. Both SYNERGY/BOGNER modules have two individual channels based on the DNA of the original circuits, designed to sound and feel like the legendary amps they are named after. SYNERGY modules are all analog circuits and come with loads of switching options for a wide tonal range.

BOGNER ECSTASY

Reinhold Bogner is a king in the world of boutique high-gain. You can find his amps backing up a wide range of A-list players, such as Alice In Chains’ Jerry Cantrell, Alter Bridge’s Mark Tremonti, Steve Lukather, George Lynch, Eric Johnson and even the late, great Walter Becker. Much of Bogner’s appeal comes from his legendary Ecstasy 100-watt head.

The Ecstasy is so popular that players demanded Synergy work with Reinhold to distill it down into this preamp module which is two years in the making. The Blue channel - based on the Ecstasy’s rock ‘n’ roll-approved second channel - offers shades of gain that, when combined with two, 3-position Pre-EQ and Schizo switches, cover everything from blues to hard rock. Switch over to the Red channel, and the same control layout brings in layer after layer of harmonically rich gain, perfect for wide-open leads and metal.  With the Synergy Ecstasy module you can now have all of the harmonically rich overtones, searing high gain, plexi-style punch and note definition of the original amp at a fraction of the cost.
