Get A Sonic Time Machine Built On Mojo - The Bogner Helios 50W Handwired Amplifer Head
To celebrate their 25th year anniversary Bogner Amplification releases the HELIOS amplifiers. Truly a sonic time machine, HELIOS features hand-wired construction with two foot switchable channels and foot switchable FX loop/boost. Available as 50 or 100 watts with EL34 power tubes.
After countless requests Reinhold Bogner revisited his vast amount of detailed notes that go back in time from three decades of archiving, modifying and designing amplifiers. Through this treasure of documents lives the aural mojo of clients such as Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens, Jerry Cantrell, George Lynch, Michael Landau + others.
With this past knowledge HELIOS delivers Rock's deepest roots with 40 years of iconic and modified Marshall tones.
SO... 100W or 50W?
Much like the old Plexi type amps the two Helios versions sound and feel different. The 100W is bolder, with punchy bass and a bit tighter than the sweeter sounding 50W. If you are leaning towards the 50W for it's lower power, consider the 100W Helios since it also has a 30W mode and captures the more iconic 100W sound and feel.
